Easy Smoky TVP Tacos

Easy and flavorful for a quick, flavorful and nutritious vegan take on tacos, made with TVP ("textured vegetable protein").
Servings 5 (3 tacos each)


Taco Filling

  • 2 small onions, diced
  • 8 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 2 cups dry TVP granules (textured vegetable protein)
  • 2 1/2 cups vegetable broth


  • 4 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt

For Serving

  • 15 corn tortillas
  • guacamole or avocado slices
  • lime wedges
  • diced tomatoes
  • lettuce or kale


  • Warm oil in large pan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until it softened, about 3 min.
  • Add the TVP, spices, and vegetable broth to the pan. Stir well to coat all TVP with seasoning.
  • Bring to a simmer and cook until all liquid is completely soaked up, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Heat the corn tortillas in a nonstick pan or on a griddle for about 30 seconds on each side until golden. (This also helps corn tortillas to hold together.)
  • Serve with tomatoes, lettuce, guacamole, cilantro and lime. Enjoy!
