Cinco de Mayo Taco Night


If you've been reading the blog for any amount of time, you'll know we love tacos in this house.  I've even made a round-up of my favorite tacos.  I'm always on the lookout for a new recipe to try or a new chance to make one up, so Cinco de Mayo last week seemed like as good a time as any.

A few weeks ago, I discovered the blog Cookie and Kate.  While not strictly vegan, this vegetarian blog has amazing recipes, beautiful pictures, and funny writing.  I was hooked, especially when I ran across Kate's recipe for Roasted Cauliflower and Lentil Tacos.  I knew I needed to make them immediately.  So, when my sister mentioned we needed a hangout date soon, I suggested a Cinco de Mayo taco night.

To go with our tasty tacos, I whipped up a quick jicama slaw.  No recipe is really needed, just cut a bunch of jicama super thin, then toss with carrots, lime, and jalapeno if you're nasty.



We decided there should probably be a little tequila at this party, as well.  I ended up mixing mine with lemonade, because I'm not a fan of margarita mix.



We also did a simple Mexican corn by roasting soaked corn in the oven at 350 degrees (F) for 30 minutes.  Once it's done, let it cool for a good 10 minutes, then shuck and cover in Earth Balance, lime, and cilantro!




Yum and yum!  I used black lentils, because that's what we had on hand.  Everything was so light and fresh.


In true Dana fashion, I made enough food for 3x as many people as we had over, so I got to eat taco leftovers a lot that week.  You won't hear any complaints from me!

Do you do taco night often in your house?  What is your favorite filling?  Leave me a comment!
