    35 min

    You'll might not even realise that there isn't any meat in these vegetarian tacos! There's just lots of aubergine and onion, flavoured with cumin, chilli, paprika and garlic.

    I just added a can of kidney beans for the protein, kale (cooked both in with the eggplant for the last few mins) and maybe 2 T brown sugar.  -  08 Oct 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is so easy and so good. And yes, I could tell there wasn't meat in it but I didn't care.  -  07 Sep 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
