I have an awesome recipe to share for you guys to try! Everyone likes Tacos, right? I think it’s one of those things where vegetarians and non-vegetarians unanimously can agree that it is one tasty dish! Although this dish is meatless, Quorn has provided us a great recipe using their mince as a hearty replacement. The recipe can be found here http://www.quorn.co.uk/recipes/vegetarian-chilli-beef-tacos/
First off, why vegetarian? Don’t let the fact that it is vegetarian scare you! I am all for eating meat at most of my meals for staying full and eating a good amount of protein, but this dish has ingredients that will keep you full and satisfied. For example, the kidney beans that are used have a good amount of protein and fiber as well as complex carbs that will help full you up without slowing you down. It is good to have some vegetarian meals as well, as protein sources from animals tend to be high in cholesterol and saturated fat. As a bonus, by replacing meats with meat alternatives or adding legumes to meatless dishes, you get exposed to a lot of heart-healthy vitamins and minerals without all the fat!
What’s good about this recipe is that it is relatively simple to make, and is 306 calories a serving (for a total of 4 servings). But hey… I won’t judge you if you eat all 4 servings ;]
It may seem as if the recipe has a lot of ingredients, but it includes spices and things that will probably already be in your cabinets. For example, garlic cloves, cinnamon, black pepper, greek yogurt, lettuce, tomatoes, and grated cheese will most likely already be in your home. I know they are certainly in my house! So you may only have to purchase a few ingredients, and of course you can swap and add your own ingredients as you please.
So, someone let me know if you end up trying this! I think you guys will really enjoy it. And I’ll end this post with a question…
What’s your favorite vegetarian dish? My favorite vegetarian dish is literally a cheese omelette made with 1% cheddar cheese and broccoli. MMM! So good!!
