Vegan Fish Tacos

For Meatless Monday this week, I made Vegan Fish Tacos. These were so amazing that I can't wait to make them again. I used Gwyneth Paltrow's recipe in her cookbook My Father's Daughter, subbing tempeh for the fish. 

On a side note, most of the sections in this cookbook are very veg friendly. Her daughter is vegetarian so she has all kinds of notes on making substitutions and there are a number of vegan dishes, from salads to soups to brownies.

I found a similar tempeh 'fish' taco recipe here. This recipe looks equally good and uses tofu instead of tempeh.

I topped mine with pico de gallo, guacamole, shredded cabbage, fresh lime and Vegenaise, a la Gwyneth.

These look fantastic! I haven't made any faux fish recipes yet, but I grew up loving fish tacos so I should've by now. Thanks for sharing!

My omnivore husband loved them and couldn't get over how much they tasted like fish. I wouldn't know, having never eaten fish to my knowledge :) Definitely give them a try and let me know how it goes!
