The bright red, crunchy cabbage is what you’ll taste as soon as you bite into these delightfully pleasing WFPB tacos. Or, perhaps, it’s the sweetness from the sweet potatoes, or the creaminess from the fresh guacamole on top. No matter what your palate detects first, it is going to be an orchestra of flavors and deliciousness!

These whole-food plant-based tacos are a great idea for group gatherings as they can be served family style as everyone can put more or less of something they are craving. I’m team “load up the black beans.” They are also great for a nice dinner at home :). Additionally, if you are new to plant-based eating and you want to start “meatless monday” chez vous, this is a great recipe to try as well.

Feel free to make it your own by adding your favorite toppings (freshly sliced chili peppers, onions, tomatoes — the options are limitless!). And remember, enjoy the process of not only making, but also *eating.*

This is one of our favorites chez nous and I hope it becomes one in your home, too :). I recently made it LIVE on Twitch and you can find that video here!
