These vegan potato tacos are to die for! The flavor of the oven caramelized figs and the roasted purple potatoes are a match made in heavens! I could totally eat them every day!
These tacos are so wickedly delicious, I find myself craving them quite often! It’s such a wonderful way to use fig when they are in season! You definitely won’t miss the meat when eating those! I made these tacos the other day with the intention of taking some for lunch the next day but they were all gone, my little girl just ate the potatoes and figs with a squeeze of lime ignoring the tortillas.
I love having these vegan potato tacos for breakfast when I know a full and busy day is ahead. They stick with me until mid-afternoon meal.
These vegan potato tacos will be so perfect for summer, either for a barbecue, or if you are looking for some delicious and simple plant-based recipes to whip-up for a quick get together!
Purple potatoes have four times the amount of antioxidant found in Russet potatoes. They are great healthy food coloring alternatives ( no artificial dye).
Why should you try these vegan purple potato fig tacos?
These tacos are easy to make, low maintenance; just cut the potatoes, coat them with spices, and stick them in the oven with the figs until they are done. You can eat them with or without the tortillas, add a side of tofu or a salad for a brand new meal! When you are done, there is minimal clean-up and plenty of time to catch up with what’s important to you!
