You won’t miss the meat: Vegan taco-stuffed avocados

These vegan taco-stuffed avocados will be a hit for anyone who loves Mexican food. Fresh avocados are halved, stuffed with a veggie taco “meat” and then topped with all your fresh taco fixings.

Being vegan or just wanting to try out meatless recipes doesn’t have to be hard or stressful. Here I used halved avocados to replace taco shells, stuffed them with taco “veggie meat” and finished them off with lots of fresh vegetables and even vegan sour cream. These are great for a light lunch or dinner and even make a great side dish. I usually serve these with a salad or grilled vegetables on the side.
