Kid-Friendly (and Vegan) Pan-Fried Tacos

One of the first things I did after deciding to become vegan, was try to find foods that my kids would eat. I was convinced that there was no possible way they would follow a vegan lifestyle if I didn’t get creative, because they scoffed at the sight of anything green.

Enter…Gardein beefless ground…(cue the heavenly angel sounds)…


I am not being paid to advertise any products here. This stuff is as close to the real thing as you can get. Now, I don’t recommend using these types of products every day. But it is great in a pinch and works well in chili, tacos, spaghetti…you name it. Very easy swap to keep things vegan.

Today, I want to give you a quick and easy vegan meal to try. My kid-friendly, pan-fried tacos fool even the most die-hard meat eaters.

You will need: 1 package of tortillas, 1 package of beefless ground; 1 can of black beans, potato, 1 can of corn and toppings.

Saute your potatoes until tender. Add beans, corn, and beefless ground.

I add a little a water as well. 20180226_185639.jpg

Meanwhile, add olive oil to a skillet and heat on medium. Once hot, fold tortillas in half and cook one side. Once browned, flip over and cook other side. 20180226_185951

After tortillas are cooked, fill with “meat” mixture. Top with lettuce, vegan cheese and other toppings.


If you are in a really big hurry, skip cooking the tortillas and just heat them up. Voila!! Super easy and kid-friendly VEGAN dinner.


The best thing about this meal is you can make extra to freeze. Not only do you have a quick dinner the first time, you have the “meat” mixture for nachos, burritos or tacos on another day!

Let me know your go-to kid-friendly meals or tips! I would love to hear from you. Until next time…
