Based on a recipe from www.greatbritishchefs.com, this works wonders for a weeknight dinner. I used the Tesco Soya mince which I really liked but you can also replace with beans for a healthier, protein rich option.
600g of vegetarian mince, frozen
1 pepper (any colour of your choosing)
1 large onion, sliced
1/2 iceberg lettuce, shredded
100g of vegan cheese, grated (I used original Violife)
1/2 tbsp oil (I used coconut)
1 tbsp of chilli powder, mild
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cornflour
1.For the taco filling, use a wok or frying pan over a medium-high heat and add oil. Once hot, fry the peppers and onion for 1 minute.
2. Add the frozen vegetarian mince and cook for 5 minutes.
3. Add the spices, sugar, salt and cornflour and stir to combine.
4. Once combined, pour in 200ml of water and bring to the boil. Cook for 4-5 minutes until the mixture thickens to coat the mince. Serve in taco shells with salsa, vegan cheese, shredded lettuce and guacamole, if you’re feeling fancy.
