These all vegan fried chicken tacos were absolutely delicious! That’s not entirely true. They’re not fried. They’re not really chicken either. But they are 100% honestly so freakin’ good. And easy to make, too.
We actually had this for breakfast and it was a great way to start the day. Full of protein and yummy carbs. I wasn’t hungry until dinner.
It starts with a batch of Southern Style Not Fried Boneless Tofu from a previous post. That dish was so popular around here I made a triple recipe and had some left over.
First, lightly toast some corn tortillas (or flour tortillas, if that’s your thing). Then slice the not fried boneless tofu, aka fried chicken, into 1/2 inch strips. Layer it in the tortillas with chopped lettuce and cilantro, onions, olives, and tomatoes. Add some guacamole, a bit of salsa verde (or your favorite salsa), and a little bit of Just Chipotle Mayo, if you want a little creamy somethin-somethin. A little squeeze of lime juice makes this vegan perfection.
