Delicioso Fresh Veggie Tacos

These delicioso fresh veggie tacos are by far my favorite vegetable taco! Using a 6- to 7-inch flour tortilla, you can make eight tacos with this recipe. If you want to use larger tortillas, the recipe will make four to six large tacos. I like to toast my tortillas until soft and lightly brown, but […]

You have to eat each food (prepared by someone else) a few times, then try several recipes until […]

Vegan Salvadoran Pupusas

If you are a fan of pupusas, you will love these vegan Salvadoran pupusas! If you’ve never had them, you’ll love them, too!! After being vegan for a year and a half, I remembered an amazing meal I had at a local restaurant: a Cubano sandwich, curtido (Salvadoran slaw), cheese pupusas, and Latin tomato sauce. […]
