Looking for a delicious vegan keto meal option? These Vegan Taco Stuffed Avocados are a great low-carb option for an easy lunch! With heart healthy walnuts standing in for the beef you’ll be amazed how much it resembles ground beef!

While I’m giving you a quick salsa recipe to whip up you can make this even easier by using a store-bought pico de gallo. Then all you’ll need to do is whip up the “meat” filling and stuff the avocado. The chipotle mayo can be made ahead of time too much it takes just a second to mix together.

Feel free to multiply this recipe by 2 or 3 on your batch cooking day to have these on hand all week as all of the components keep really well. Just be sure to cut the avocado the day of as they will brown pretty quickly. Half an avocado is perfect for a light low-carb lunch, whole avocado will be enough for a satisfying dinner.

Instructions

  1. Start by making the salsa by combining all of the ingredients in a small bowl, set aside. Prepare the cauli-rice. You can use a hand grater or place the cauliflower in a food processor and process until it resembles rice (use a grating blade or the S blade).
  2. Optionally, if you're making the chipotle mayo topping, mix together the mayonnaise and adobo sauce in a small bowl, set aside.
