VEGAN TACO SALAD
1 lb. veggie crumbles or seitan, food-processed to look like crumbles
2 Tbs. olive oil
1 Tbs. Montreal steak seasoning
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp. onion powder
1 sweet onion, chopped
10 cups lettuce, any kind, cut into bite size
2 large tomatoes, diced
1 cup shredded vegan cheddar cheese
2 cups crushed tortilla chips
Salt and pepper to taste
Brown the veggie crumbles or chopped seitan in 2 Tbs. olive oil. Salt and pepper to taste. Add the garlic, onion powder, and steak seasoning. Allow the mixture to sit off the heat while you prepare the rest of the dish. This will give it time to absorb the seasonings.
In a very large bowl, put the onion, tomato, lettuce, vegan cheese and salt and pepper. Mix together as you would a salad so all the ingredients are dispersed. Add the crumbles. Add the crushed tortilla chips. Taste for seasoning.
Serve with an array of sauces on the table. My favorite is taco sauce, but salsa or any hot sauce would be good, depending on personal preferences.
|The recipe above is my standard taco salad. You can add anything else|
you wish: avocado, beans, black olives or whatever floats you boat.
