These Roasted Eggplant Vegan Tacos are layered with a creamy herb sauce, pickled onions, romaine and a drizzle of hot sauce!
Can you ever really go wrong with vegan tacos? I think not. And these ones in particular are non-traditional and perfect for Spring. Eggplant sliced thin makes it extra crispy when baked - uh, yum. And once it is roasted to perfection, it is layered with my Creamy Dreamy Green Sauce in a warm tortilla with pickled onions and hot sauce...there's nothing better.
How to make Roasted Eggplant Vegan Tacos
The first thing you need to do is roast the eggplant. I sliced mine into rounds, then in half again. By cutting the pieces on the thin side, some of them will get super crispy and some will stay more tender. I think it is the best of both worlds, so feel free to slice them in slightly different widths.
Layer the eggplant on a couple of parchment-lined baking sheets and drizzle with olive oil, salt & pepper. Put it in the oven and prep the green sauce in the meantime.
The Creamy Dreamy Green Sauce is just that...creamy & dreamy & herby & delicious. It is a simple combo of herbs and veggies. Whip it together in a food processor or blender and set it aside.
How to assemble Roasted Eggplant Vegan Tacos
You of course need to heat the tortillas before assembling. I like to do this on an open flame, but you can also do it in a pan.
To assemble each taco layer the green sauce, roasted eggplant, romaine, pickled onions, hot sauce and cilantro. Serve with some lime wedges on the side and you are good to go.
