When pursuing a vegan lifestyle it is very easy to get caught up in the lavish, over the top meals that require way too much money, time, and patience. We can sometimes be a little hard on ourselves always making sure that we’re feeding out family the top of line foods. That’s absolutely great to be conscious of every food you eat. But is it really benefiting us to run ourselves thin trying to perfect everything? My answer to that question is a loud NO. Sometimes we need to give ourselves a break and take it easy. This recipe is dedicated to all the mothers and busy vegans out there that need a break sometimes. This one of the quickest and tastiest meals you can make.
The name of this meal is Spicy Garbanzo Tacos! It’s so super easy to make and your family will love it. I bring up my daughter in almost every post because I cook my meals around her. If she doesn’t like something then I don’t make it. If she loves it then I fix it over and over until she gets tired of it. I’m dealing with a picky eater here so I have to do what I can to make it work. She loves this recipe. So back to the tacos.. all you need is a taco dinner kit and about 3 cups of garbanzo beans (also known as chickpeas). To make this recipe SUPER easy you can use canned beans and it’ll take almost no time to make. The kit I use is the Garden of Eatin that I purchased at my local Kroger (super convenient).
HOW TO MAKE:
I’m not going to do a formal recipe write up for this meal because it’s so simple to make. All you need to do is take your garbanzo beans and add them to a skillet with a little water. If you’re using canned beans what you will need to do is empty both cans into the pot. One can can drained and the other undrained (add liquid to the pan). Take out your vegan seasoning packet and add it to the beans, turn the heat on medium low and heat everything until the beans and seasonings start to thicken. After about 7 minutes of cooking they should be all done!
You’ll want to heat your taco shells up (by following the directions on the box of your kit), add your beans, and top with any toppings of your choice ( I just use lettuce and tomato).
And there you go! Your SUPER easy vegan tacos! Not every meal has to be so time consuming and complicated. Many of use have a lot on our plates so it’s important to be kind and patient with yourself. Just think of all of the other horrible foods you could be eating instead, right? Hope you enjoy your vegan tacos
