Famous Taco Salad

D03E79B6-868F-4490-8FAE-50B826B3F395I remember the day I first had a taco salad. I was 15 working at an office job, under the table and we had a lunch party one day. A few of the managers brought food and one of the meals was a t o salad. What an awesome concept. I mean, I LOVE burritos and Tacos! So why not throw it all on top of a salad with a creamy ass dressing and mix it all together!?! 😍😍

This was, of course, before I was plant based so I would use ground turkey, because I thought that was the healthier choice of Meats. I started making this taco salad a lot for my family because it was the one thing I knew how to cook well and knew everyone would enjoy it. This actually makes me realize now that at 15 I found my love of being able to feed my loved ones with a super delicious meal. There’s something really satisfying about feeding others by putting your love, hard work, and creative energy into their meal.

Once I figured out to Veganize this recipe by using a meat crumble substitute with taco seasoning and a vegan mayo based dressing I was set. Because I was still learning different recipes, this was my GO TO! I also thought it was SO good I started making it for any friend I could. I wanted to show them that vegan was super yummy.

Ok, I actually am about to let you in on a little secret… I TOTALLY use this recipe to pull a quick one on everyone and share how tasty plant based life is! Ha ha!! Now I have a big pot to fill huh? I promise, this salad is that good!! Make it for yourself a few times. See what works for you and then, do me and yourself a favor, don’t keep this recipe to yourself!! Invite your friends and family over and share your knowledge of health! To be honest, I don’t even think you need to mention that it’s plant based….? Let them figure that out later. Most of all, have fun making this and Enjoy eating and sharing it.

Taco salad

By The Superfood Goddess

Serves 4

Ingredients:

Organic Mixed Greens

Salad Topping-

-1/2 Onion

-1 clove Garlic

-1/2 head of Cauliflower

-1 Large or 2 small Zucchini

-1/2 Bell pepper

-6 Mushrooms

-Pinch Salt

-Spray oil

-1 Package Taco seasoning

-3 Tablespoons Nutritional yeast

-2 Tomatoes

-1 Avocado

-14 tortilla chips (I like Siete brand)

Optional: Shredded cheese

Dressing:

-1/2 Cup Mayonnaise or 1 Cup Cashews (soaked 4-6 hours)

-1/4 Cup Ketchup

-1 Tablespoon Hot sauce

-1 teaspoon lemon juice

Method:

-Chop the onions and place them in a pan, on medium heat, with some spray oil. Sauté!for about 5 minutes until translucent.

-Add minced garlic and sauté for 2 minutes.

-Add chopped cauliflower and taco seasoning and sauté for about 8-10 minutes, stirring every minute.

-Add zucchini and keep stirring for 5 minutes.

-Add the red bell pepper, mushrooms, nutritional yeast and sauté and stir for another 5 minutes.

-OPTION: to add shredded cheese, to give it a little bit more creaminess, you can add some Daiya or follow your heart shredded cheese

-For The Dressing: Put all ingredients in a small bowl and stir together until it resembles a dressing. If you’re using the soaked cashews, drain the water and throw all ingredients into a blender and blend until creamy! You will need 1/4-1/2 Cup water to help blend

-Take whatever salad amount you want and place it into a large mixing bowl. Top with some dressing and toss to evenly soar the lettuce leaves. Then place the salad in a bowl or on a plate and then top with the taco topping. For some texture and added crunchiness, crumble a couple tortilla chips on top, I recommend Siete brand.

The Superfood Goddess travel box 

It’s here!! 🙌🏼🤸🏼‍♀️⭐️ the Superfood Goddess’ travel box. I often am asked by many of you. What are some of the things I travel with??…

When I travel I always like to be prepared! Time and time again have I shown up somewhere and had to go straight to an event or work, without having proper time to refresh or fuel up. Or many times I’ve gone to a city that doesn’t have as many, or any, healthy options for my to choose from to stay healthy… Or sometimes sh*t happens and flights are delayed, etc. Having snacks and a few different items with me assures that I have something in my back pocket. I wanted to share with you a few things that I travel with on a regular basis.

Navitas Focus powder: 

When I am away, I often feel a little ungrounded and out of sorts with time changes and being in a new space. This powder helps me get focused with a nice sustained energy. I trust Navitas, I have been using them for over 10 years now. They have quality Superfood products, they’re organic, and they are always staying up with the “trends.” I would even say they start some of them… I have had the pleasure of meeting a lot of the team at Navitas and they’re super passionate about the company and they’re super friendly. They have many amazing products and I use, A LOT of them, but I thought this one would be a nice addition to my box, instead of grabbing for an acidic morning coffee..

GingerX: This is my friends company and I am so proud fo her!! Nothing makes me happier than supporting my boss ladies and start ups doing good in the world. This company has created a shelf stable ginger shot! Oh my! I mean this is a dream for me. Numerous times have I searched for a juice bar in a little city and it was either way to far or non existent. Also, you’re not always sure it’s going to be organic. This is a Female ran business. Stacy is super sweet and I’ve had the pleasure of working with her and becoming friends. She just wants to help spread health and make it easier for us on the go.

Go Raw Protein Bar:

This is a great snack for the plane or in between the airport to hotel, or just at some point during your trip. This is another company I have been following and using for over 10 years now. I trust their ingredients. They are raw (fully loaded with nutrients), refined sugar free, gluten free and vegan. The protein comes from watermelon seeds, YES I SAID WATERMELON SEEDS!, and a little pea protein. They have four flavors and I have to say the chocolate or Lemon are my favorites!!

Apple Cider Vinegar: Apple cider vinegar is something that helps with immunity, balances your PH, and can lead to weight loss. I know it can have a very strong taste but diluting an Oz in a small cup of water helps it go down. I swear by it and always bring a few travel size bottles with me on the road to stay healthy.

I like Braggs Apple Cinder Vinegar

Amazing Grass Greens: Greens are super important to keep our bodies alkaline. Being alkaline helps our bodies combat and battle toxins, chemicals, and free radicals that we encounter on the daily. Being acidic or being unbalanced in our PH creates a perfect environment for disease. I always try to eat greens or at least find a juice bar where I can access a green juice to fill and detox my body. Sometimes, you get to a city where there is nowhere healthy in sight or perhaps the place that is “healthy” seems sketchy. Packing green powders Incase is super important!

Potato Skins

1469A7E0-4ED5-41AC-8C31-D62F99AAD27DWhenever I say the word, potato, I want to say it with an Irish accent. I seriously have no clue why! Haha.  As I sat down to write this, that’s  what came to mind and I just thought it wouldn’t be fair if I didn’t share that.

Anyways, back to potato skins… I don’t know about you, but potatoes are so my weakness. I don’t eat them all the time but I would have them at every meal if I could. So adding some other really nice favorites like chives, creamy cheese and sour cream, and something crispy crunchy on top, such as fakin bac’n or chirizo, really does it up for me. Normally, all the toppings aren’t dairy free and are loaded with an unhealthy amount of cholesterol, fat, and salt. In this recipe you are free and clear of allllll that shiz!!

Ok, so making this for your non vegan friends is a win! It was the first thing off the super bowl table when I brought it this year. Later when I was telling someone about the potato skins being vegan they toldnme to stop and ask me to repeat myself! Ok, enough bragging, I just really want you to know you’re in for a treat! It takes some labor but well worth it peeps.

Enjoy,

Stephie, The Superfood Goddess

Twice baked potatoes bites

10-20 Golden potatoes
Coconut spray oil (to spray potatoes with)
1 Tablespoons Pink Himalayan salt (to sprinkle over potatoes before wrapping in foil)
4 Tablespoons Vegan Butter (melted)
1/4 Cup finely minced chives (to mix in mixture)
1 tsp pink Himalayan salt
1 tsp Garlic powder
1 tsp Black pepper

Topping:
Sour cream (tofutti)
Chives (chopped)
1/2 package Soyrizo OR fackin’ bac’n (just a sprinkle on top)- If using soyrizo, cook half the package in a small pan, on medium heat, for 10 minutes until slightly dry and browned.

Method:
-1. Preheat over to 400. Wash and Scrub potatoes well. Pat dry and prick the potatoes at least 6 times with a fork.

-2. Spray each potato with the oil and sprinkle with a little salt and then wrap in a small piece of foil individually.

-3. Bake potatoes in the preheated oven for an hour or until tender. Take potatoes out and let them cool for 15 minutes before removing the foil.

-6. Remove foil after fifteen minutes and cut in half lengthwise. Then scrape the insides of the potatoes leaving a 1/4-1/2 inch shell. Sometimes I will use a small sharp knife to insert into the potato and give myself a guideline of where I’m scooping. Be careful to not go too far and break the shell.

-7. Scoop the potato pulp/insides into a mixing bowl. Once you’ve scooped all the potato pulp out, begin to mix using a masher, or an electric mixer on low, or a fork. Slowly adding melted butter, salt, garlic power, black pepper, and minced chives. Mash until they look and taste like fluffy mashed potatoes. If they seem too dry feel free to use 1-2 tablespoons of non dairy milk to moisten the mixture.

-8. Scoop mashed potato mixture back into the shells and place in a backing dish or pan and cook uncovered at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes. You can broil then for the last 5 minutes if you’d like to add a little crispiness.

-9. Take the cooked potatoes out and let them sit for 5-10 minutes before putting you topping on them. You can add the sour cream, soyrizo, and chives on top. If you’re feeling extra cheesey, take the potatoes out five minutes early, grab some Daiya cheese shreds and sprinkle on top of the potatoes. Then place them back in the oven to finish cooking 5 more minutes.

*** if you would like to make these a day early you can! After you have scooped the mashed potato mixture back into the shells, you can put them in an airtight container for 24 hours before reheating them at 400 for 20 minutes. Then follow the rest of the directions for topping.

 

Eat Well. Feel Well,

Xo, Stephie
