VEGAN MOFO: Tacos for the Prez


OMG!  Barack Obama is coming over for dinner because he knows I make awesome vegan food!  What should I make him?!  That's the prompt for Vegan Mofo today.  I would make the President what I make all my dinner guests when I want to impress:  TACOS.

I would hope that he would bring Michelle with him, and I would want to showcase the beauty of veggie dishes.  She's such an awesome advocate for healthy eating, that I know she'd love my tacos.




I'd make them a fresh, farmer's market peach salsa, then, I'd make a fennel apple slaw to go on the tacos!




In truth, I actually made these tacos for some great friends that just moved back to Little Rock.  We won't tell the President that it's a repeat!




Peach Summer Salsa

Ingredients:

  • 4 peaches, washed and diced
  • 1 red onion, peeled and diced
  • 1 large red bell pepper, de-seeded and diced
  • 1 jalapeno, de-seeded and diced
  • 2 cups yellow cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • Juice from 2 limes
  • 3 tbs chopped cilantro
  • 1 tbs white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  1. Once vegetables are prepped, assemble everything in a large bowl.
  2. Blend half mixture with immersion blender or regular blender.
  3. Chill for 1 hour before serving.



Fennel Apple Slaw

Ingredients:
  • 1 head of savoy cabbage, cut into thin strips
  • 3 small apples, diced
  • 1 fennel bulb, shaved
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • Sauce:
    • 1 cup vegan mayo
    • Juice from 1 lime
    • 1 tbs chile powder
    • 1 tsp coriander
    • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Cut up vegetables and assemble in a large bowl.
  2. Assemble sauce in a small bowl.
  3. Toss mix in half of sauce.
  4. Let chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  5. Toss again and add more sauce as necessary.
  6. Chill for another 30 minutes before serving.






For the actual tacos, I would keep it really simple.  I'd cook a cup of lentils down per package instructions with a tbs or so of cumin and a little salt.  I'd also roast some zucchini strips and soaked corn.  It would be the perfect meal!




I hope the first family would stay for some board games or a cocktail after dinner!

What would you make the President?  What other dishes have you seen around today on Vegan Mofo?  Leave me a comment!
