We love a good #TacoTuesday around here (I mean, could there ever be a bad #TacoTuesday)? It’s a fun way to meal plan and add some spice to our menus during the week. I love going all out on homemade guac, queso dip, homemade vegan taco filling, rainbow fajitas, and more! Plus a pitcher of margaritas. Always margaritas.
Here are a few of my favorite recipes for vegan Taco Tuesday. They are full of flavor, super versatile , and all use fresh plant-based ingredients. From appetizers to desserts, here are our favorite vegan Taco Tuesday finds.

These Quick and easy TVP Tacos use Textured Vegetable Protein as the base for the filling! Quick and easy, we mix TVP, tomatoes, and spices for a healthy #TacoTuesday dinner.

We regularly #TacoTuesday on our homestead, but I thought I would switch it up and create some healthy veggie fajitas instead. I love sheet pan meals, too. Throw everything in a pan, throw that pan in the oven, and throw that food on your plate when its done. One pan dinners are great for easy clean up.
Guac is extra, and so am I! Nothing jazzes it up like out favorite Taco Tuesday Guacamole. No seriously, we do tacos every single week – the vegan TVP recipe for Our Weekly Vegan Taco Night is above! I love grabbing super fresh and ripe avocados from the store, and making a quick guac in about 10 minutes.

This Instant Pot Mexican Rice is the perfect one-pot side dish to make in your Instant Pot or electric pressure cooker. A fantastic side dish to serve with your tacos, black beans, enchiladas, or guac. You could also use the stove top or a rice cooker to prepare the rice, and spice it after cooking. Great for bean and rice burritos, one of my faves!
