Sheet Pan Squash Tacos
Today I’m sharing ANOTHER amazing cookbook recipe from a blogger friend. I feel pretty honored to work with and around so many talented women and am always happy to celebrate their accomplishments! Jackie, from Vegan Yack Attack, just released a new cookbook called Vegan Yack Attack on the Go and it’s SO GOOD! It’s a collection of quick and easy vegan recipes and I can’t wait to try ALL of them.
Today I’m sharing one of Jackie’s recipes from the book for these quick and easy Sheet Pan Squash Tacos. Hopefully you know by now, I will pretty much always opt for the tacos 😀🌮🌮
I will also most often opt for the easy path to putting food in my mouth which is exactly what these tacos are. Quick, easy, no fuss. Chop up your veggies and dump them on the baking tray, toss them with some flavor, bake em up. DONE!
The recipe calls for the veggies to be tossed with the spices in a large bowl, but I just did it all on the baking tray in order to save myself one more dish. I like to think ahead like that ;)
All of the recipes in Jackie’s new cookbook are SO EASY and perfect for meal prep and on the go meals. Everyone needs easier vegan meals these days, right? If you’ve never checked out her blog, DO IT NOW! She has SO many amazing vegan recipes that I know you’ll love.
These tacos are also GREAT for meal prep if that’s your thing. Once cooked, you can section it all up into 4 containers and then just took a few tortillas on top with any extra toppings you want. Ridiculously easy lunches for on the go which is exactly what her new cookbook is ALL about.
The recipe calls for butternut squash but really I think that any squash would work great in it’s place. I plan to try making this again with half butternut squash and half zucchini since I have a bunch of zucchini growing in the garden right now.
