Roasted Brussels and Tofu With Homemade Refried Red Bean Tacos [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan


  • 1 block cubed, roasted tofu 
  • 1 bag fresh Brussels sprouts
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Garlic powder to taste
  • 2 cups red beans (dry)
  • Lime juice to taste
  • Cumin to taste
  • Garlic powder to taste
  • Guacamole
  • Gluten-Free tortillas 


  1. There is no other way to cook these sprouts. Pre-heat the oven and cook them 425°F for about 30 minutes with sea salt, olive oil, and garlic powder.
  2. Cook the dry beans in your pressure cooker. Fill the water about 2 inches over top. Cook for 14 minutes. Let them cool off naturally and then drain, but preserve the water.
  3. Get a hot skillet on, and add 5-6 cloves of garlic in olive oil. Allow them to sizzle over medium heat until browned.
  4. Then smash them up with a fork. Add the drained beans, about 1 cup of the bean juice, and big portions of the following: coarse sea salt, cumin, lime, smoked paprika, and garlic powder.
  5. Mash them up as they simmer for a few minutes. Use an immersion blender for truly expert results.
  6. Add your tofu, sprouts, beans, guacamole, and fresh cilantro to your tortilla shells!
  7. Don’t like tortilla shells, make a taco bowl or taco salad with more greens and the carb of your choice!

I work really hard to produce the most original, delicious vegan food that I can while balancing the demands of a busy lifestyle. Veganism is a way of life that demands exposure!
