Quick & Easy Vegan Tacos

I love tacos just like everyone else, but as a vegan I've had to modify the ingredients. Instead of ground meat I use a meat substitute called Boca Veggie Ground Crumbles. It's made by the same company that makes Boca Burgers.  Over the summer I used the Boca crumbles to make tacos and I chopped lettuce and tomatoes to make traditional style tacos, but tonight I decided to make a variation and cook all the ingredients together to cut down on the do-it-yourself assembly at the table. The result was simpler -- but just as delicous -- tacos!

Vegan tacos


                      Taco shells
                      Boca Veggie Ground Crumble (1 package)
                      Two tomatoes chopped
                      One onion chopped
                      Two cups baby spinach leaves
                      Daiya Deluxe Cheeze Sauce Cheddar Style (yes, cheeze with a 'z'), 
                                 1 packet
                      Olive Oil


                      1. Heat oil in skillet  
                      2. Throw in onion first and cook about 10 minutes, stirring frequently
                      3.  Add in Boca crumble, but first break apart since it tends to clump 
                           together in freezer
                      4.  Cook Boca & onions together for about 10 minutes, stirring 
                      5.  Add in spinach and cook another 5 minutes, stir continuously
                      6.  Finally add in tomatoes and cook until soft, keep stirring!
                      7.  While cooking the taco filling above heat up the taco shells according  
                            to directions on box.  (Monitor carefully so they don't burn.) This only
                            takes about 6-7 minutes, so if you want them warm & crispy do this 
                            around the same time you add the tomatoes to the mix.
                       8.  Heat up Daiya Cheeze Sauce in the microwave for 1 minute
                       9.  Ready to serve!
