Vegan Chopped Taco Salad

This recipe is from Pinterest (you can get the original recipe from HERE), and I would definitely say this is a pin win! The flavours came together nicely, it was simple enough to make, and it's healthy!

What you will need:

Taco “meat”
  • ½ white onion, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup cooked chickpeas
  • 1 teaspoon taco seasoning mix
  • ½ avocado flesh, mashed
  • 1 tablespoon finely diced white onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • Juice from ½ lime
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Salad Ingredients
  • 2 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons salsa
Add onions and water to a pan on medium-high heat for about 2-3 mins until the onions are softened. Then add chickpeas and taco seasoning and reduce heat to medium. Cook uncovered for another 2-3 minutes, until heated through.
Meanwhile, add guacamole ingredients to a small bowl and mash with a fork to combine. Set aside.
Pile all of the salad ingredients in a bowl. Top with guacamole and taco “meat”.
Variations: The original recipe also called for corn chips, I did not add those, but feel free for that crunchy texture! Also, this recipe only makes for one (A big serving however).
