But I did have tacos for lunch! I stuffed my leftover Crispy Orange Bean Curd (tofu & veggie patties in soy-orange sauce) and jasmine rice from Jasmine Thai & Vegetarian Restaurant into corn tortillas. This stuff was amazing last night at the restaurant, but I really think it was even better stuffed into tacos at lunch. Everything is better stuffed in a taco.
For dinner, I made some individual recipes from The Taco Cleanse cookbook — the book that's inspiring this week's all tacos, all the time diet — and combined them in corn tortillas. The book does include recipes for specific tacos, but there's also a chapter filled with individual taco filler recipes, so you can mix and match your own tacos. I made the Ion-Charged Refried Beans (slow-cooked pintos with rotel, onions, and roasted garlic), the Abundant Roasted Potatoes (garlic-roasted taters), and the High Vibration Kale Chips. I stuffed those into a taco with guacamole and Yellowbird Serrano Sauce.
What a perfect combo! Beans, potatoes, and kale go so well together! Unfortunately, my oven-baked kale chips didn't stay crispy overnight (I prepped them the night before). I probably should have dehydrated them since my experience with oven-baked kale chips is they always result in soggy kale chips the next day. They were super crisp right out of the oven, but they didn't hold up overnight. They still tasted delicious though! Roasted kale really does have a special flavor that you don't get from dehydrating.
I made these tacos on corn tortillas instead of flour ones because I wanted smaller snack-sized tacos. I needed to save room for cupcakes, snacks, beer, and wine at Cassi's one-year anniversary for her vegan restaurant, Pink Diva Cupcakery. She had a little anniversary party tonight.
There were no tacos, but there was a nacho bar. I only had a few chips since I'd eaten tacos already. But I definitely got down on these Mini Grilled Vegan Cheeses.
And little shot glasses of Tomato Soup.
And most importantly, there were cupcakes! These were mini Chocolate Diva Cakes — chocolate cupcake, whipped topping, chocolate ganache. I had a couple!
I'll continue my taco cleanse through Saturday. But I have a ton of taco fillings left, so I'll likely be eating tacos all next week too, and that's totally fine. I COULD EAT TACOS FOREVER! I will check back in with a taco update on Sunday.
