I am a vegan wife and mother to a meat eating family. I will share with you recipes I have tested and changes I am making to encourage my family to lean into a vegan diet.

Taco Night…Kids Review

Today was such a beautiful day here in Tulsa.  Almost all of the snow has melted and the sun was shining bright.  After school we headed to the park to play.

When we got back home I wanted to have a dinner that was quick and easy to make since it was already 5:30. 

Which brings us to…taco night!

My daughter was aware that all items being used were vegan (except for the vegetarian meat crumbles), but my picky 6-year-old son had no idea.  I knew that this was going to be another test.  I crossed my fingers and hoped for the best!

I shredded some almond cheese (my first time using this and I highly recommend it.)

 A lovely ripe tomato.

Black beans for mine and vegetarian meat crumbles (not vegan) for everyone else.

 

Tortillas & taco seasoning.

Sour Cream.

I also shredded lettuce and put out salsa and a big salad.

Within 15 minutes dinner was ready. 

My son put together his own taco (which always makes it taste better to him) with the works. 

I was waiting for any kind of reaction by him after the first bite. 

Waiting, waiting…

Then I got what I was looking for, a thumbs up!

My daughter usually hates fake meat, so I was curious about her opinion too.

It was unanimous!  My husband and kids thought it was delicious.  It was so fast, easy and healthy.  We will definitely be doing this again.
