What tacos would you like?
Well, when they are not an option for you, don’t be discouraged.
There are so many non-meat options out there!
You just need to be a bit creative!
You have to admit.
They look tasty, right?
This Renkon lotus tacos rock!
Renkon does not have a very strong flavor, but it soaks up whatever the flavor you want to add.
One of the reasons I like Renkon is its texture.
It keeps a unique texture that does not get mushy when cooked.
Perfect when served with freshly made pico de gallo.
By the way, I just visited a recently opened Asian grocery store near our house.
This store is big, clean, and the produce section is absolutely awesome!
