tacos saturday

love having friends over for lunch on the weekends. this time i made healthy tacos. mostly vegan except one with fish. even the margaritas were bursting with vitamins and tequila is vegan after all.

fish taco and blueberry margarita IMG_3731

i followed this recipe for margaritas without the agave nectar as they are sweet enough with all the fruit in them http://mayihavethatrecipe.com/2014/05/29/blueberry-lime-margaritas/

for fish taco i used this recipe just swapped cauliflower for halibut and used only red cabbage. i especially love the tartar sauce on top that i made from vegan mayonnaise replacement, homemade pickles and homemade sriracha sauce (recipe at the end of post) http://www.veggieinspiredjourney.com/2015/05/23/crispy-coconut-lime-baked-cauliflower-tacos/

tempeh and bean tacos IMG_3733

these were delicious and meat eaters would never know they are vegan. tempeh base seasoned with paprika, turmeric and chilli topped with plum tomato, avocado and coriander http://www.thegardengrazer.com/2014/09/black-bean-tempeh-tacos.html

and dessert… cherry and coconut frozen smoothie with baby brownies IMG_3734i kind of wanted to follow a recipe but ended up little different. so here is how u do it:

1tbs cacao powder, 1tbs shredded coconut, 1tsp of almond milk mix together, u can add tiny bit of coconut syrup and make small balls (if too crumbly add more milk) and pop in the freezer. brownies done. for the creamy shake pour coconut milk in the ice cube making tray and freeze few hours in advance. once frozen throw 8 cubes in the blender with half cup of almond milk and half cup of pitted cherries. pour mixture in glasses and decorate with baby brownie balls, pitted cherries and shredded coconut. p.s. cherry pitter is the best invention ever

oh and most important recipe of the taco saturday is homemade sriracha sauce! you can make it as spicy as you want and you know exactly what goes in it unlike the one you buy in a store. supposedly you can keep it in the fridge for couple months but we used up the entire pot on the table between 4 people during that lunch. http://mywholefoodlife.com/2014/01/25/homemade-sriracha-sauce/#more-7685
