The key to authentic tasting tacos is all in the tortilla!

Lightly toast them in a hot pan, less than a minute on either side should do it. You’ll know they’re ready when air bubbles inside start to make them expand. Wrap them in a damp tea towel and keep them warm in the oven until you’re ready to serve – watch the video below to see how Nadia does it, then try for yourself with our vegan taco recipe below.
