Vegetarian Taco Salad

Although this roundup may say otherwise, we’re firm believers in hard shell tacos, too. Especially when it’s a DIY hack of baking flour tortillas to form a crispy bowl then filling it up with beans, veggies, cheese and a creamy, protein-dense dressing. Get the recipe: Vegetarian Taco Salad

Vegan Tofu Scramble Tacos

So, you’ve never had a tofu scramble, huh? The results of crumbling firm tofu and sauteeing it with onion, sweet pepper, chili powder and turmeric (that’s where it gets its golden egg-like colour) will blow your mind. We’re feeling confident enough to promise that you won’t be sad about making this one. Get the recipe: Vegan Tofu Scramble Tacos

Rainbow Trout Tacos

Hey, here’s that mild rainbow trout again. Because we’re big fans of a fish taco, we couldn’t simply offer up one option. This version has mango hanging out on top because it doesn’t like to play by the rules. Get the recipe: Rainbow Trout Tacos

Grilled Fish Tacos with Pineapple Salsa

Surf meets tropical turf in this summer-y version of fish tacos. Warning: cilantro can be an aggressive flavour for little taste buds. Serve it on the side and let herb-shy diners garnish their own tacos. Get the recipe: Grilled Fish Tacos with Pineapple Salsa
