I don’t know about you, but I love fusion food. My favorite is some sort of Asian cuisine combined with Latin. Food trucks are particularly good at this. Kogi is the perfect example. Their short rib taco is nothing short of amazing. There’s another food truck around Orange County that has a banh mi taco. Amazing.
I’m also a big fan of Taco Tuesday. I wish I took advantage of it more often. I really wanted to hit up my favorite taco spot today, but then I remembered I should probably save money (and calories). Instead I made tacos at home with ingredients I already had, and thus this italian-mexican fusion vegan creation was born:
Vegan Fusion Tacos
1 corn or flour tortilla
2 tbsp avocado pesto hummus
2 artichoke hearts, halved
a few sliced thinly sliced zucchini
1 tsp nutritional yeast (optional)
Heat tortilla. Spread tortilla with Avocado Pesto Hummus. Top with artichoke hearts, zucchini slices, then sprinkle with nutritional yeast. If you want to go crazy, squeeze some extra lemon on top. You won’t be sorry. Then devour.
Note: If you make a full avocado pesto hummus recipe, you should be able to make about 6-8 tacos.
Do you see the fusion in here? Italian ingredients: Garbanzo beans, Artichoke Hearts, Zucchini, Basil. Latin/Mexican: Lemon, Avocado, Tortilla.
I think that’s pretty good.
So there you have it. Tasty vegan dinner, ready in about 10 minutes. Get your Taco Tuesday on.

I have yet to try this nutritional yeast business – I need to get on it!
Ah remind me and I’ll bring you some! i bought an enormous bag! It smells kind of funny, but tastes really good 🙂
I love fusion food! And tacos! (I’ve never had Kogi…I really need to track down that truck, is it worth it?)
Oh man! I don’t want to hype it up, but the tacos and sliders were pretty tasty. I had the kimchi quesadilla once and that was good, but the sliders and tacos were the best. Definitely worth a try, just to say you tried it 🙂
