Last week, when I posted this easy 5 minute Chimichurri Sauce recipe, I mentioned some of the delicious dishes I added the sauce to, like Chimichurri Grilled Chicken Zoodle Bowls, Chimichurri Grilled Shrimp Skewers and Chimichurri Vegan Tacos.
Today, I’m so excited to share the recipe for Vegan Tacos, which I’ve been gobbling up with spoonfuls of chimichurri sauce on top!
Vegan Tacos with Grilled Veggies and Chimichurri Sauce
This recipe couldn’t be easier to make! Start by whipping up the chimichurri sauce, if you don’t already have some on hand. Next, add the veggies to a foil basket and place on the grill over medium heat for 20 minutes, tossing 3-4 times throughout the grilling process.
Grill the tortillas for 30-60 seconds, then pile the grilled veggies and chimichurri sauce in the tortillas. You can then add toppings like fresh avocado or guacamole and diced tomatoes or pico de gallo.
What vegetables do you put in tacos?
For these vegan tacos, I put potatoes, bell peppers, onion, corn and jalapenos in the tacos. Other vegetables commonly found in vegetarian tacos are zucchini, mushrooms and cauliflower.

Vegetarian tacos are easy to make. Simply create the filling for the tacos, which can include beans, like black beans or chickpeas, vegetables, like those mentioned above, meat substitutes, like tofu or soyrizo, or fruit, like Butternut Squash, Cactus or Avocado.
Add your choice of vegetarian fillings to crispy taco shells or soft tortillas, with your choice of toppings like cheese or sour cream (if you’re not vegan) or other vegetables like lettuce, tomatoes and onion.
