Mexican food is some of the most popular in the world, but can be heavy in meat and dairy. Here are some wonderful plant-based recipe books to enjoy with your vegan Margarita! Note tequila does not usually have a ‘worm in the bottle’ but its cousin mezcal may do, so ditch the latter, and sip the former!
Sugar Taco at Home offers recipes from an LA restaurant and women-owned business, ditching meat and dairy for juicy jackfruit, perfectly-seasoned seitan, house-made queso and more, with an on-trend meny with vibrant Dia de Muertos-inspired decor. The two restaurants are thriving.
