Vegan Richa’s Lentil Mung Bean Tacos with Chickpeas and Cauliflower


If you aren’t following Vegan Richa you are missing out! This awesome vegan food blogger is one of the most prolific bloggers on the internet these days, and she just came out with a beautiful new cookbook called Vegan Richa’s Indian Kitchen. I pretty much want to make every awesome recipe in it when I’m not swooning over the beautiful photography. Luckily, eating tacos on an Indian diet is no challenge at all. Just about any Indian restaurant is going to allow you to make your own tacos with naan or roti and then you can fill it with curry, masala, or korma, and then add vegetables, top with chutney, and, boom, you are ready to go.

Or start from scratch and try this recipe from Richa herself Lentil Mung Bean Soft Tacos Stuffed with Chickpea and Cauliflower


Taco fredag: Swedish Taco Friday

You’re likely very familiar with Taco Tuesday. You may have grown up eating tacos in your school cafeteria every Tuesday—or wishing you could. But, shocking though it may be, Taco Tuesday is not universal.

In Sweden, they have Taco Friday. Or taco fredag.

Friday night is a casual family night in Sweden devoted to family dinner and television. Recently, families have switched their allegiance from pizza to tacos on Friday night. Solid choice, Sweden.

If you think back to the Taco Kit dinners of your youth (or last Wednesday), you’ll have a pretty good idea of a Swedish taco. Ground meat cooked with an Old El Paso spice pack. Jarred salsa. Cheese. And of course cucumbers.

Swedish Taco

What? You don’t eat cucumbers on your tacos? Maybe it’s time to try. After all, Sweden has a great reputation for health care, maternity leave, and affordable furniture. And I’m pretty sure it’s all due to taco fredag.
