18 Easy Vegan Taco Recipes (The Best!)

If you're in need of some easy vegan taco recipe ideas, then you will love this list.

In the mood for tacos? In our household, we eat tacos almost weekly. They are the number 1 requested meal of both my 3-year old and my husband. We enjoy tacos so often that I had to make a list of all of my favorite vegan taco recipes to share with you. This list features all of the plant-based tacos you need from cauliflower and mushrooms to flavorful tofu. A great thing about tacos is that they are so easy to make. 

Tacos are simple, quick, and crowdpleasers because who doesn’t like tacos? To switch things up, I like to explore different kinds of fresh vegetables, beans, herbs, and seasonings for our tacos.  There are so many great options out there and I firmly believe that like sandwiches, few things don’t work stuffed into a fluffy tortilla. 

Whether you are a long-time vegan or just exploring more plant-based meals–these easy vegan tacos are fail-proof and great for everyone.
