Welcome to what I call ‘A little bit of heaven on a plate’. I’m about to convince you that these tacos are quite possibly the greatest thing since gluten-free bread.

Note: If you don’t have these tacos on your menu for this week, change that now. Please.


You can really toss anything you want into these tacos but if you’re in the mood to follow a recipe, read on….

These tacos just scream happiness. I honestly think happiness can be found anywhere…maybe it’s not actually found but instead, arises from within us and is found when it’s shared.


Therefore, share these tacos with your family or loved ones and you’ll find happiness.

Just kidding.

You will however find happiness in every bite. Trust me.


While this isn’t a meal you thought you’d be able to prep each week with ease….think again. It is. All you need are a few gluten-free or organic corn tortillas, a whole grain such as brown rice, wild rice, black rice, jasmine rice, teff, quinoa or millet and a few condiments such as extra-virgin olive oil, ground flax seeds, organic lettuce or green veggies, sun-dried tomatoes, maybe a few nuts or dried fruit and you’re done! I like to use a special sauce to drizzle on top like hot sauce or flax oil mixed with balsamic vinaigrette.  They key though is that you wanna make that dressing warm so it keeps this dish hot until serving.


Yes, even on these warm nights – you’ll wanna enjoy a warm taco. It’s like a warm hug in the middle of Spring.


And hugs are just the best.

    These REALLY do look heavenly, and it’s something my son can have (allergen-friendly) and he would absolutely love!!! Can’t wait to try this one out. Love that you added flax seeds to this recipe, that’s something I am really trying to incorporate into our diet on a daily basis.
