Vegan Taco Recipe

The Vegan Taco Recipe Beyoncé Adores

When the weather heats up, I tend to crave more and more plant-based recipes. And ever since I heard that Beyoncé tried a vegan diet, I could not wait to get my hands on her favorite dishes. In the forward of The 22-Day Revolution ($28) by Beyoncé's chef Marco Borges, Bey not only explains how she was able to sustain this big shift in her diet but also specifically calls out this recipe: "I couldn't believe how much of our health we can control with food. And that I could still love food but this time it would love me back (like the walnut tacos you'll find in here, oh my!)." With the Beyoncé seal of approval, I decided to try them out for myself — and I'm so glad I did. I've played around with a number of vegan taco meat iterations, but this walnut-based version is a clear winner.

Beyond their spiced, smoky, and surprisingly meaty flavor, the combination of walnuts and avocado makes this a Mexican-inspired dish packed with heart-healthy monounsaturated fats that have also recently been linked to burning away belly fat. I enjoyed two tacos for a complete meal, but if you're concerned about keeping calorie counts in check, grab one taco and enjoy a salad on the side.
