I love Mexican food. The best thing about Mexican food (other than the margaritas) is that it’s so easy to make delicious things that are plant-based. The spices and seasonings are so flavorful and pair well with a wide variety of vegetables and protein packed beans.
Vegan Cinco de Mayo
Planning a fun fiesta is something I love to do. I always try and keep thing on the easier side when it comes to recipes since cooking large amounts of food can be daunting.
So I put together a fabulous guide to make celebrating a tad easier! There are ideas for just about anything.
Staples to have on hand
When it comes to fiestas, staples are key. Here are a few of my favorites, you can make these yourself or buy them to be even easier.
Easy recipes to serve
Once you have the staples covered, you can fill in with all the delicious food. These are all plant-based vegan recipes that are generally on the healthier side. Within each recipe, you can always swap the veggies and beans for what you have on hand in your fridge or pantry.
Many can also be made ahead of time to help make prep easier. Or you can make parts of each days before and keep until the main dish is ready to be prepped.
Here are my top picks for each course!
