Easy vegan tacos

Super tasty low fat, easy vegan tacos that take 5 mins to make – these are epic and a real crowd pleaser! They might take you 10-15 mins as there were 2 of us when we filmed the video but either way they are quick, tasty and incredibly delicious as well as healthy!

Takes 5 minutes

Serves 2


  • Whole Wheat tortillas 300g slice into small 8-9cm circles
  • 150 g Oyster mushrooms
  • 1 tin of Black beans
  • 10 Cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp tamari/ soy sauce
  • 3 Scallions or green onions
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 x lime
  • 200 ml natural soy yogurt
  • 15 g fresh coriander/ cilantro
  • 1 Red onion
  • 50 ml white rice vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1.5 tsp ground cumin
  • Chilli flakes to serve


  • First let’s pickle the onions. This will bring out the bright pink colour and soften the raw onion taste as well as give a nice acidity to the tacos. Peel and slice the red onion into long thin slices. In a glass add the sliced onion along with the vinegar and fill the remaining space with water so that the onions are submerged and leave to sit to pickle.
  • Finely dice the coriander including the stalks
  • Slice the scallions, quarter the cherry tomatoes and finely slice the mushrooms into small bite sized pieces
  • Drain and rinse the black beans
  • Mix the soy yoghurt with half the diced coriander and the juice of 1/2 lime and mix well, this is to function like a healthier sour cream.
  • Heat a non stick wide bottomed pan on high heat
  • Add the scallions and the black beans and cherry tomatoes and pinch of salt a fry,
  • Slice the garlic finely and add to the pan
  • Fry to 2-3 mins stirring regularly
  • Add the spices and tamari and mix well and turn off the heat, taste and adjust the seasoning to your liking.
  • To plate up, use a muffin tray to hold the tacos while you fill them.
  • Add a tbsp of the yoghurt coriander mix
  • A generous spoonful of the mushroom black bean mix
  • Top with some pickled red onion and some chopped coriander
  • Enjoy!

    But you do realise that you don’t say when to add the mushrooms, right?
