Last year my daughter lived with a vegan. It was such an interesting journey for both her and me as we learned about what a vegan actually eats. I mean, if you can’t eat any meat, poultry, eggs, cheese, or dairy, including my beloved yogurt….then what’s left to eat??? Surely not lettuce, lettuce and more lettuce??? Or how about soy, soy and more soy? Uh, no thanks.
As it turns out, vegans have a pretty adventurous menu, including beans, beans and more beans…. And some soy…and lots and lots of vegetables.
Honestly, I must admit, it’s a pretty tasty and ultra-healthy way to eat. In fact, I have been known to go on week-long vegan binges…..
These potato tacos are outstanding…. They’re beautiful, aren’t they? The recipe comes from my daughter’s roomie. She made them for a bunch of guys one night, not revealing to them that they were scarfing down soy sausage. The jalapeno crema is to die for! I am totally addicted to the stuff and have been putting it on all kinds of food: sandwiches, burgers, fries, fish, grilled veggies……. I dream about the stuff. Find the recipe here.
