Hearty, healthy, delicious tacos; ready in less than 20 minutes with no heat required. The perfect plant-based, gluten-free lunch or dinner!
For the taco filling:
  • 1 (15 oz) can organic chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed
  • 1 ripe avocado, mashed
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped with tough stems removed
  • 1 cup shredded slaw mix or thinly chopped cabbage and carrots
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes or other seasoning that you enjoy
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt + more to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper + more to taste
Optional extras:
  • 5 corn tortillas or large leaves of romaine
  • crumbled Queso Fresco
  • sliced jalapeños

  1. Combine all filling ingredients in a bowl and lightly mash/combine until everything is well incorporated. Mash chickpeas as much or as little as you prefer.

  2. Scoop about 1/2 cup of the filling mixture into each tortilla or lettuce leaf. If desired, drizzle with sriracha sauce, a squeeze of lime juice and add any other favorite extras. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes
