Low Carb Vegan Tacos with Leek and Avocado
Our family LOVES tacos but the tortilla wraps are very high in carbs and fat. To avoid a family mutiny I served regular tacos and cheese to the family but made myself these lovely fresh and low carb tacos. They took no extra time to prepare but I did have to dirty another frying pan which in my opinion the extra clean up was well worth it.
While the family’s beef was simmering away I diced up all he vegetables and went to work. When choosing your avocado, make sure your avocado is not TOO ripe other wise you will end up with a mushy mess. While the avocado and leeks are cooking I would suggest to combine the tomato and cucumber and add a touch of baslamic vinegar. Place the mixture in the fridge until ready to build your taco. The taco will be equally as good if you if you choose to just add the tomato and cucumber without the vinegar.
