Recipe: Vegan Taco Night

This is no joke:  Earlier this week, we went to New Seasons to buy a package of Beyond Meat‘s newest product – Beyond Beef.  Each place we looked however did not yet have Beyond Beef.  So when I arrived at home, I was so surprised to find a package on my porch – a freezer pack from Beyond Meat!  They sent me two retail packs – one of their “feisty” flavors, and one of the standard “beefy” flavor.

My freezer surprise straight from Beyond Meat!

So tonight we decided to use the feisty version for taco night.  This is a super easy, delicious dinner that easily fed 3.

The ingredients

What we included:

  • 1 package, Beyond Beef (Feisty)
  • Daiya Cheddar Vegan Cheese
  • Tofutti Sour Cream
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Corn
  • Organic Black Beans
  • Black Olives
  • 1/4 Onion, diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • Avocado, cubed
  • Refried beans
  • Tortillas and taco shells
  • Cayman Jack “Margarita” (optional)

First, combine the Beyond Beef, corn, black beans, garlic and onions in a frying pan.  Brown slightly.

Brown everything slightly.

Second, build your tacos!

Third, enjoy!

Yum!!

This was our first time trying the new Beyond Beef.  The second we put it in the pan, we could recognize a difference from all other ground up beef crumbles.  It was more substantial, and had a great color and texture.  It cooked easy and uniformly.

In the tacos, the Beyond Beef was delicious – adding its own flavors. Beyond Beef is an awesome new addition to the vegan crumbles market, and I look forward to using it in many other dishes!
