Vegan Street Tacos — Bulgogi Jackfruit Tacos Recipe

This Vegan Street Tacos recipe is infused with delicious bulgogi flavor and topped with a slightly sweet Brussels sprouts slaw. Make the jackfruit ahead of time and enjoy this vegetarian street tacos recipe throughout the week!

With warmer weather on the horizon, we can’t help but think of recipes that require less time in the kitchen, and more time outside. That’s why these Bulgogi Jackfruit Street Tacos are a perfect summertime recipe…although we would eat them all year long.

By the way, this Bulgogi Jackfruit goes perfectly on my Vegan Loaded Nachos recipe too.

I had a hard time embracing the whole street taco thing because every time I saw them, they were served with meat, or cheese, or some other thing I wasn’t too interested in eating.

And then I had this whole stranger danger thing going on. I don’t adapt well to new things. I mean, I’m familiar with the burrito and the tostada. And, of course, we all know the crispy-shelled taco. So, what is this thing called the street taco?

This is what I wanted to know. And so eventually I broke down and made some. I’m oh so glad I did.

Come to find out, street tacos, or Spanish Tacos, are not such a strange thing after all. Street tacos are a little smaller, usually small enough to be held in your hand as you walk down the street. Transportable food. I like the idea of that!

So now that vegan street tacos and I are friends, I thought I’d introduce you.

Looking down on three Bulgogi Jackfruit Street Tacos on a plate. Beside it are bowls of slaw, sour cream sauce, and more bulgogi jackfruit.

What You’ll Love About these Vegan Bulgogi Jackfruit Street Tacos

This Vegan Street Tacos begin with a layer of Slow Cooker Bulgogi Jackfruit. Oh yeah. And then it’s followed by a layer of Jalapeño Brussels Sprouts Slaw and topped with a little bit of vegan cream and a splash of lime.

Is it just me or does that sound amazing?

But there’s more to this recipe than meets the eye. That’s because between the jackfruit and Brussels Sprouts alone, you’re going to be consuming lots of nutritional goodies such as potassium, Vitamins C and A, iron, and even fiber.

That’s the amazing thing about a plant-based diet. You get to enjoy delicious, fresh foods while at the same time boosting your health. And did I mention plant-based diets also reduce your carbon footprint as well?

That’s a lot of goodness in vegetarian Spanish taco recipes.

Oh, and one more thing: If you make the Bulgogi Jackfruit and the Slaw ahead of time, then this recipe comes together really quickly – say less than 30 minute quickly!

Ingredients

  • 12-24 small corn tortillas
  • 1 recipe Vegan Bulgogi Jackfruit
  • 1 recipe Brussels Sprouts Slaw
  • 1/3 cup vegan sour cream
  • ½ teaspoon fresh lime zest
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Fresh lime slices for garnish

Instructions

  • Place corn tortillas on a platter and allow them to sit on the counter to come to room temperature (if they’ve been in the fridge).
  • If you made your Bulgogi Jackfruit the day before, be sure to warm it up in the microwave or oven.
  • Get out your Brussels Sprouts Slaw so it can sit on the counter and come to room temperature.
  • In a small bowl prepare the Vegan Cream Sauce by combining the vegan sour cream, lime zest, lime juice and garlic powder. Stir to combine. You want this cream sauce to be thin enough to drizzle across the tacos, but not so thin that it’s runny.
  • Lay two corn tortillas flat on a plate. Put a couple of spoonfuls of the Bulgogi Jackfruit in the middle and spread it in a line across the middle of the tortilla. Top that with a spoonful (or two) of the slaw. Repeat this for each taco. Drizzle the top with the Vegan Cream Sauce.
  • Have lime slices (and/or hot sauce) nearby so you can add a little more zest to the plate.

    • How fun would that be! I could travel all over the country with it like in the movie Chef. First stop? Your backyard! Well, I wouldn’t want to mess up your grass or anything, so maybe just your street. 🙂

  1. Wow I’ve never heard of using Jackfruit like this. I looks just like pulled pork. Does it taste similar? Is it sweet or spicy? You’re getting me more and more interested in vegan food options Marly.

  2. This is delish coming from a non vegan. I bought a can of jackfruit from my local Trader Joes as I am always on the lookout for a good Meatless Monday meal. Thank you for posting this!

    • Thanks, Linda! This is one of my favorites too! You should try this Bulgogi Jackfruit on Nachos. I don’t do it often, but when I’m looking for some great comfort food, it’s my go-to favorite!
