Refried Beans + Avocado Tacos! (20 minutes, plant based)


Avocados and refried beans are the highlight of this Taco dish!  Vegan Tacos are the perfect natural food recipes for your plant based diet, not to mention they certainly do not miss out on any flavour! It is so fabulous because it is a simple vegetable recipe that takes only around 10-20 minutes to prepare depending on what you have ready!

In the recipe I recommend making homemade Guacamole, so here is my fave recipe, ever!

Homemade Guacamole:

  • 2 guacamoles
  • 3 tbsp EVOO
  • 1/2 tsp each salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • juice of one lemon and one lime
  • 4-5 cherry tomatoes (the little, littles ones)
  • 1 cup cilantro

Add all your ingredients into a blender, and simply blend, then enjoy!


Lastly, for the protein substitute make sure you are adding lots of flavour from things like chillies, paprika, cilantro powder, cumin and onion powder! Go as Mexican or ethnic as you’d like, just make suer not to skip out on flavour and comfort!

You are going to love these Tacos because they are:

  • vegan
  • using natural food
  • vegetable recipes made affordable + accesible
  • quick + easy
  • comforting
  • great for your plant based diet
  • flavourful

    […] On my trip this summer I stayed in a beautiful hotel called Hotel Hayden. This hotel was an adorable boutique hotel inspired by the high fashion of the Chelsea neighbourhood it sits in. What I loved about this hotel is how close it was to local landmarks like the Empire State Building and Madison Square Garden. It also had an awesome rooftop bar and restaurant, and a great bistro. I really enjoyed the vegan dolmades and the fava beans. […]
