Roasted Veggie Tacos

Whenever I’m in need of a quick 30-minute meal, tacos are always a staple. They’re a great way to clean out the fridge, and can be prepared in so many different ways.

These roasted veggie tacos come together so easily, and are full of delicious chipotle flavor.

I love coming up with new ways to incorporate veggies into our meals, especially if we’re bored of the same old rotation. These veggie tacos are a delicious way to get in your fiber and nutrients, and are loaded with a rainbow of vegetables.

I made them with carrots, red bell peppers, broccoli and jalapeno pepper, but they can honestly be made from any variety of veggies!

How to make roasted veggie tacos

This meal comes together in just a few simple steps-

Prepare the pickled red onions

If you plan to serve your tacos with the pickled red onions, I suggest preparing them first so that they have at least 30 minutes to soak up the flavor.

Roast your veggies

The veggies are finely chopped and tossed with a few simple spices and olive oil, then roasted until soft and tender.

Blend your chipotle mayo

While the veggies roast, prepare your sauce by blending together the chipotle mayo ingredients until smooth.

Prepare your toppings

Once the veggies are almost ready, start prepping your toppings of choice. I love to heat my tortillas over a medium flame so that they get that delicious charred flavor.

Layer your tacos

Start assembling your tacos with all of the fix-ins and enjoy!

What to serve with your tacos

Taco toppings are truly endless, but here are a few of my favorite add-ons for these veggie tacos:

  • canned black beans- an easy and affordable way to incorporate some plant-based protein
  • homemade pickled red onions– this simple pickled red onion recipe is ready to serve in just 30 minutes and adds so much flavor!
  • sliced avocado
  • vegan chipotle mayo- a delicious smokey and spicy sauce that can be drizzled over just about anything! I use the canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce for this recipe
