Video: 5-Minute Vegan Taco Salad

Today I’m excited to be sharing something I’ve been wanting to do for a long time: recipe videos!

I created my VegangelaTV YouTube channel a few months ago with the goal of sharing quick and easy recipe ideas. For the first video, I decided to share my 5-Minute Vegan Taco Salad. It’s not really a recipe, but just something I throw together whenever I don’t feel like cooking, but still want something super tasty and healthy to eat. Take a look when you have a moment:

The video is a bit rough, but I should get a better handle on things as I make more of them. If you watched the video, I’d love to hear your feedback!


The basic “recipe” is below, but I never really make the same salad twice, because I just use whatever I have on hand. Here are some other delicious options:

GRAINS

PROTEIN

VEGGIES

  • Bell Peppers, Diced or Sliced
  • Cucumber, Diced
  • Carrot, Shredded
  • Cabbage, Shredded
  • Sprouts
  • Red Onions / Green Onions, Diced
  • Corn (canned, frozen, grilled)
  • Mushrooms, Sliced & Fried
  • Sweet Potato, Roasted
  • Butternut Squash, Roasted
  • Fresh Mango, Diced

TOPPINGS

BOWL
Instead of adding corn chips, you could serve the salad in a baked tortilla bowl. Kids would especially love that!

Ingredients
Dressing

  • 2 tbsp water
  • ½ tsp cumin powder
  • (you could also add: garlic, lemon/lime juice, salt and pepper OR use this Creamy Avocado Dressing)
Salad ingredients
  • A couple handfuls of greens (dark leaves are best, so a good Mixed Lettuce, baby spinach, shredded or baby kale)
  • Handful of tomatoes (either a chopped up regular tomato, or handful of baby or grape)
  • ½ cup canned/cooked beans (Black, Kidney, Chickpeas, Lentils)
  • A couple handfuls of crushed corn chips

  • A bunch of cilantro (fresh coriander), chopped

  1. In a large bowl, whisk or stir it all dressing ingredients until you have a nice creamy consistency.
  2. Add the greens, tomatoes and beans and toss until well-coated.
  3. Add the corn chips, avocado, cilantro and hot sauce. Toss and serve.
