Sometimes You Need “Beef” Tacos – Day 6 of 31

I’m teaching my students how to write narratives, so I’ve been doing a lot of model writing for them.  A good narrative has a hook that makes the reader want to read your story.  This is a skill that I struggle with when I’m writing my blog posts.

However, it is important for a writer to have a hook to get the reader to read what you have written.

Like a writer needs a hook, sometimes you need a beef taco.  Since I’m a vegetarian, I don’t have the typical beef taco.

I’ve tried TVP, which is textured vegetable protein but usually turns into a brown soupy mess.  Yuck!  Not appetizing.

Then I tried the Beefless Ground Beef along with their soy chorizo.  It’s just the right texture.

“Beef” tacos get into my belly.


What you need:

  • a third of a package of Trader Joe’s “beefless” ground beef
  • a third of a package of Trader Joe’s soy chorizo
  • a third of a jar of Trader Joe’s enchilada sauce

“Beef” Tacos

Stars of the recipe:

  • 1/3 of a package of Trader Joe’s “beefless” ground beef
  • 1/3 of a package of Trader Joe’s soy chorizo; make sure to take off the casing
  • 1/3 of a jar of Trader Joe’s enchilada sauce (You may need a little more than the third.)
  • Tortillas (hard or soft)
  • Your favorite toppings

Steps:

  1. Combine the “beetles” ground beef, soy chorizo, and enchilada sauce in a saucepan.
  2. Cook on medium heat until heated through. Add more sauce if it’s not coated enough.)
  3. Enjoy on a tortilla with your favorite toppings.

This recipe is vegan before you add your toppings.

Happy vegetarian eating,
Traci
