These vegetarian tacos with avocado mint sauce are the perfect way to have a easy and healthy week night dinner. I am all about easy weeknight dinners with three kids. There is just something fun about tacos that everyone loves.
So you guys know that I was a vegetarian years ago- I was even vegan for a few years. I have been trying to make changes in my eating habit to incorporate more plant- base meals. The fact that these tacos are fish-free and loaded with crisp vegetables all the while sitting on a bed of watercress leaves, makes me a happy girl. I mean come on. I love a “seafood” cake that allows me to not worry because the soy and wheat tat make up these cakes are non-GMO.
The “seafood” cakes can be cooked from frozen, so all I had to do was put them in a skillet and in about 10 minutes my tacos were ready for assembly. Do you see what is happening down here?

The fact that all of that plant-power goodness is topped with this creamy avocado mint sauce.
We had these just topped with the creamy avocado sauce as a quick after school snack with the kids. BIG HIT!

I also picked up the black bean burgers– I can already smell a spicy black bean burger burrito in my future.
Enjoy them as a taco or snack. Either way you are gonna have fun with these cakes. Big thanks to Gardein for sponsoring this post!!!
