Spinach-Potato Tacos

Vegan Mexican Tacos


  • Large potatoes, scrubbed and cut into small dice-2

  • Frozen spinach- 1 (10-ounce) package

  • Large onion, diced- 1

  • Medium poblano pepper, seeded and diced- 1

  • Garlic, minced- 2 cloves

  • Ground cumin- 2tsp

  • Unsweetened, unflavored plant milk- 1cup

  • Nutritional yeast- 3 Tbsp

  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • Corn tortillas-12

  • Chopped fresh cilantro-1/2 cup


  • Put the potatoes in a medium saucepan and add water to cover. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, until the potatoes are tender up to 10 to 12 minutes. Drain well and set aside.
  • Place several layers of paper towel on the counter and place the thawed spinach at the bottom of one short end. Roll up the spinach in the towel and, holding it over the sink, twist either end of the roll to squeeze out as much liquid from the spinach as you can. Unroll and set aside.
  • Cook the onion and poblano pepper over medium heat, stirring occasionally, and adding water 1 to 2 tablespoons at a time until softened 7 to 8 minutes. Add the garlic and cumin and cook about 1 minute.
  • Put the reserved spinach and potatoes along with the plant milk and nutritional yeast. Season to taste with salt and pepper and cook until heated through 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add as many corn tortillas to the pan as will fit in a single layer and heat for a few minutes to warm the tortillas through. Remove them from the pan and set them aside, covered with a clean kitchen towel to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.
  • Place the tortillas on individual serving plates or a large platter and divide the potato mixture among them, spooning it onto the center of each. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve.
