Vegan Carne AsadaTacos are perfect for Taco Tuesday or any night of the week! Made with TVP and a smokey, citrusy marinade, you won't believe how well this recipe replicates the flavor and texture of Carne Asada.
Peel and roughly chop the onion. Wash the cilantro (no need to remove the stems unless they are woody). Place all of the marinade ingredients--except the water!--in the blender and blend to combine.
Add the TVP to a shallow dish or container. Pour the marinade over the top. Add a ½ cup of water to the blender and swish it around to grab any remaining marinade. Pour the water over the TVP and mix to combine.
Marinate, covered, in the refrigerator for 4 hours or overnight.
Cook the TVP & Serve
When the TVP is done marinating, transfer it to a skillet. Add another ¼ cup of water to the marinade dish and swish it around, then pour into the skillet (this will help grab any leftover marinade that remained in the dish).
Cook the TVP over medium to medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, for 15 to 20 minutes, or until all of the liquid has evaporated and the vegan carne asada is nicely browned and crispy.
Serve right away with corn tortillas, chopped white onion, and cilantro.
