Who is up for healthy veggie tacos on meatless Monday? Or any other night of the week? Because if I have these veggie tacos around, I can turn vegetarian in a jiffy.

These veggie tacos are loaded with veggies – zucchini, mushrooms, bell peppers, tomatoes and baby corn. And cheese – loooots of cheese! This actually started as a fridge cleaning exercise to use up veggies close to their expiry date, wilting and looking slightly sad. I chopped them all up, added some taco seasoning, jalapenos and stuffed them in tortillas. Topped with sour cream, some cheese and fresh cilantro and dinner was ready in 30!

We really live for taco nights because it gives us a chance to have more fun during dinner – make our own tacos, try out new combinations and the like. And these veggie tacos have been a game changer in the house. Even my husband who is a hard core meat eater loves these!
