The Newbie Vegetarian: Easy & Cheap Vegetarian Taco Boats

In Cooking & Crafting by Jen13 Comments

Ever since my oldest daughter Samantha had a flare up from an auto immune disease we have been adjusting her diet to see if we could eliminate any foods that might be a trigger to her system. We have found out that dairy is one of those things that doesn’t work very well for her, and we also discovered she feels better when she eats less meat. She still eats it, but overall she is trying to reduce her intake in that area. As the main chef in the family, I have found out a few things about vegetarian fare. Sometimes the ready made items can be a little on the expensive side, and then cooking vegetarian meals can also at times be a little more time intensive than I feel able to commit to.  So today, I am excited to start a new series focused on helping newbie or maybe even established vegetarians make food that is easy, delicious and not too steep on the wallet.

Let me introduce you to my first recipe…. Vegetarian Taco Boats!

  1. I would love these too. I love meat, but I’ve noticed I eat less and less meat and more of everything else. Age I think. I’m going to give this a try.

    Have a fabulous day, Jen. ♥

  2. I can totally pull off at least one vegetarian meal a week and the hubby doesn’t even complain. I need to try these out.

  3. Hi Jen, I can’t imagine being able to not eat dairy! I feel for your daughter! But to feel good giving it up is a small price to pay. Our tacos shells are pretty rubbish and don’t hold anything. Yours look good and I’m happy to eat vegetarian food every now and again.

    1. I think you could even use just regular tortillas or maybe philo type shells for this too maybe?

      Ugh, the dairy was super hard at first, but they have some really yummy options here in the states to help replace. They are pricey, but at least they are available!
