Tacos Sin Carne [Vegan]

You will be amazed at how quickly and simply this meal comes together. And your friends will be amazed that the tacos are sin carne.

Tacos Sin Carne [Vegan]



  • 1 cup dried textured vegetable protein
  • 1/2 yellow onion
  • 1 cup diced or crushed tomatoes, optional



  • 2 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1/2 t garlic powder
  • 1/2 t onion powder
  • 1/2 t cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 t oregano
  • 1 t paprika
  • 1 Tbsp cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste

The rest

  • lettuce
  • tomatoes
  • salsa
  • any other toppings you love
  • taco shells or tortillas


  1. To do this place 1 part TVP in bowl and cover with 1 part boiling water. Place lid on bowl and let sit for five minutes.
  2. While the TVP is re-hydrating, heat up 1 TBSP oil in a pan.
  3. Once hot add onion and saute, stirring often, until lightly brown.
  4. Once onions are ready add chili , garlic, and onion powder, cayenne, oregano, paprika, and cumin. Stir to coat onion.
  5. Add tomatoes. I just use whatever is in my pantry, usually diced tomatoes, and add to taste. The tomatoes add juiciness and flavor but could be omitted all together, in which case add a little extra water when adding tvp to onion mixture.
  6. Add tvp and stir until combined. Let sit simmer for 5 minutes for flavors to soak in.
  7. Prepare your toppings.
