These veggie-filled tacos are made with hibiscus, mushrooms, and the perfect blend of spices. Simple ingredients are loaded into fiber-filled homemade quinoa, cassava, and cactus flour tortillas, making it a meatless meal that is sure to satisfy.

  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chili flakes to taste
  • Garlic powder to taste
  • Onion power to taste
  • A pinch monk fruit
  • Equal amounts of quinoa and cassava flours

  • Creamy base of your choice: garlic hummus, Greek yogurt, or crème fraîche

  1. Heat oil in frying pan and cook garlic until golden. Set garlic aside.
