Braised Carrot Tacos are a hearty plant-based taco filling that even meat eaters will enjoy!
We love tacos around here and I am always looking for new taco fillings to satisfy our taco cravings. Braised Carrots Tacos are my new go-to taco for taco night. These tacos are packed full of flavor from the carrots and the spices add warmth and a little extra spice to the sweet carrots. Even meat eaters will enjoy these compeltly vegan tacos!
In about 30 minutes cook time, you will have a taco filling that is not only delicious but full of nutrition. The carrots are coated in a spice mixture of guajillo chile powder, cumin, smoked paprika, and oregano. The spices help to balance out the natural sweetness of the carrots. The carrots are simmered in vegetable broth until they are tender. The filling comes together quickly; perfect for an easy weeknight meal.
I like to serve these tacos with my taqueria salsa which has raw tomatillos and creamy avocado. This is a completely optional garnish, but I really loved the addition of roasted, lightly salted peanuts. Peanuts are commonly found in Mexican sauces and the nutty peanut flavor pairs nicely with the the carrots and salsa. The peanuts also add an extra layer of texture to the tacos.
If you are looking for more meatless recipes to incorporate into your meal plan, these Braised Carrot Tacos are a filling and satisfying plant-based recipe that your family will just love!
