NOW ONTO THE RECIPE!
I decided to try something new with MorningStar® Farms Quarter Pound Veggie Burgers.
Used MorningStar Farms delicious quarter pound vegan patties as the “meat” of my tacos and created two meal options with these vegan patties.
First, I made a taco salad and used the rest salad to fill some tortilla bowls. Finally, I loaded it up with a diverse variety of ingredients.
VEGGIE OPTIONS FOR THIS VEGETARIAN TACO SALAD!
To match the flavors, I have loaded my salad with a generous amount of –
- black beans, corn kernels,
- lettuce, tomatoes,
- sharp cheddar cheese, olives,
- green onions, avocado, and
- of course, MorningStar® Farms Quarter Pound grilled Veggie Burgers.
This combination proved to be a perfect combo of diﬀerent ﬂavors. The lettuce added a bit of crunch to the tasty taco salad and the fusion of corn and black beans and other veggies turned out to be the best part. I added a little bit of salsa and sour cream to the mix to create the best taco bowl I have made for a very long time.
As soon as my kids laid eyes on the taco bowls they have been clamoring me for more. Do give this recipe a try and I am sure you love the diverse flavors it has to offer!
