Vegan Tacos

We had this mid week meal for the first time this week and WOW! So yummy!

Everyone in my house gave it the tick of approval and it is the perfect mid week meal as it is quick to pop together.

I served the taco meat and cheese sauce on a platter (grazing board style) with a selection of fresh toppings: avocado + lettuce + grated carrot alongside the taco shells.
