"It's Funky Enough" Roasted Vegetable Tacos with Cherry Tomato and Peach Salsa

Sharing is caring!

Delicious vegan taco recipe perfect for meatless tacos Tuesday.

I could eat these roasted vegetable tacos every day! So simple to make and very filling, and a great excuse to put a cool, tasty salsa on top.

Veggie Tacos with Cherry Tomato Salsa

My favorite tacos are traditional carne asada with cilantro, onions, and lime juice. These vegetable tacos are meatless and feature a funky twist on pico de gallo. Instead of your standard fare, I use a medley of heirloom cherry tomatoes and diced peaches which pair well with the different vegetables including the cauliflower, zucchini, and portabella mushrooms.

These vegan tacos are easy to make and are perfect for your next taco Tuesday or meatless Monday. Making them is as simple as seasoning the vegetables with salt, pepper, and chili powder and roasting them in the oven. If the roasted version ain't funky enough for you, try grilling or smoking these to add another level of flavor.

These look delicious but my vegetarian DD won't eat mushrooms. Do you think I could substitute them with tofu and still make this work?

I think you would be fine with tofu or even tempeh for that matter. Corn, black beans, and butternut squash are also options.
