It’s been a hot minute since I wrote up a blog and posted on here. School needs to take precedent over the blog sometimes. And lots of good photos to come as well! So, if you want to stay up to date feel free to sign up to my email list which can be found on the sidebar or the bottom of this page!
I know, I know, you aren’t here to read me ramble. You’re here because want to know how I made and how YOU can make your own FRIED AVOCADO VEGAN TACOS. Yes, it’s a thing and yes, they are tasty.
A little back story: I was at a Mexican restaurant a few months ago, and I ordered fried avocado tacos and man, they were…. utterly delicious! The restaurant is roughly 4 hours from where I live so to experience them again I decided to create them for myself! Because I’m balling on a budget (well sometimes I am) and have many other trips planned.
Let’s talk about diet restrictions. This recipe is vegan-friendly, vegetarian-friendly, and gluten-free (with the use of gluten-free wraps). I recently tried the Siete Grain Free Tortillas. I used the almond flour tortillas and the cassava flour tortillas. Both are great but, out of the two, the cassava flour was my favorite! I will be buying them again! Below, I have linked the products used in this recipe.
Now let’s talk budget: If you’re not following a gluten-free diet regular mission taco shells will do and you might already have some on hand. You could also fry with vegetable oil instead of avocado oil. Just don’t use olive oil for this recipe.
One last mention, I recently switched from vegetable oil to avocado oil for cooking and OH MY… It made a huge difference. So, I highly recommend investing in quality avocado oil. It’s a little pricey but I believe it’s well worth it. Also, for the cornmeal try to find a brand that isn’t super fine!
What are you waiting for? Let’s get cooking there pan-fried avocados!
