Dalida's Taco Salad
1 package burger-style crumbles
1 onion chopped coarsely
2 Serrano chilies
1 bag pre-washed romaine lettuce
1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup cooked corn
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 avocado, sliced
1/2 cup vegan soy cheese, shredded (optional)
Heat up a medium sauce pan with extra virgin olive oil on medium-high heat and brown the soy crumbles for a few minutes...add the onion and Serrano chilies and brown for about 8 more minutes or until well-cooked. While browning you can add seasonings like taco seasoning, salt, pepper, cayenne, crushed red pepper to taste.
In a large bowl, combine chopped romaine, tomatoes, corn, garlic, avocado, soy cheese and choice of dressing. I like to use a mixture of olive oil, vegenaise (for creaminess), some Bragg's, lemon juice, curry powder and apple cider vinegar. Toss salad.
Pour soy crumbles mixture on top. It is complete! You have a delicious, zesty hearty salad!! Enjoy!
