Vegetarian Tacos with Tofu and Root Vegetables

Meanwhile…while everyone is going nuts over PSL season, I’m in the kitchen making one of my family’s favorite dishes: Root Vegetable Tacos with Tofu and Lime-Cilantro Cream. I promise you it’s a fiesta in your mouth. If you have read The JetSet Family for a while, you already are well aware that I am on the perpetual search for the following when serving up meals: flavorful seasonal ingredients, healthy, low-fuss recipes, and it has to be made with color. I am a big fan of colorful ingredients.

So it makes complete sense why I am excited to be finally working with our friends at Seeds of Change® for this recipe post. For those unfamiliar with the seed-to-plate brand, Seeds of Change launched a new line of organic simmer sauces, that are not only delicious, but serve up easy-to-make meals, packed with flavor, and most importantly, you choose your own ingredients making the dish as healthy as you desire.

Taco Time!

The brand’s savory selection will instantly inspire you to prepare healthier meals which I welcome when possible. All of new simmer sauces are available in an array of the world’s most popular flavors and it’s not uncommon for me to stock my pantry with a bunch of different pouches. Not only are they certified organic, free from artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives, but they taste as though you’ve been slaving over a home cooked meal for hours, when in fact, it hasn’t even been 30 minutes yet. I call this WINNING! The sauces come in an easy-to-pour, no mess, 8 oz. pouch leaving barely any clean up as you sauté your favorite meat, fish or tofu until done by adding a Seeds of Change® Organic Sauce and simmer for 10 minutes.

Home chefs seeking bold flavors with a twist of ethnic food authenticity and let’s be frank, convenience, will appreciate being able to recreate restaurant style dishes on their own. And I love their commitment to using only organic ingredients grown by trusted farmers who share the brand’s passion for goodness. Today I’ll be serving up tacos with the Taco Roasted Chipotle sauce, but I have also tried the Sesame Ginger Teriyaki, Tikka Masala, and Mushroom simmer sauces, and I’m here to tell you, each one was impressive. I’ve tried different proteins from tofu and shrimp, to chicken and beef, and each flavor packet has risen to the occasion.

Feel The Heat

The Taco Roasted Chipotle sauce has genuine south-of-the-border flavor with an extra kick from the Chipotle pepper. But that doesn’t stop me from adding even more heat. Thanks to one of the best cooking classes I’ve taken on authentic Mexican dishes down in Mayakoba, I learned how to add flavorful heat without feeling the burn.

Tacos for Breakfast?

I think my favorite part of this recipe, is that it is the perfect all-day dish. Here’s a tip: add a fried egg on top, or stir for scrambled, and serve for breakfast or brunch on the weekends.
