Nowadays, people aren’t just looking for something that tastes good, they’re seeking healthier options to the convenient, yet typically calorie-laden lunch. If your mobile food truck can satisfy both these criteria, you’ve got yourself a recipe for success. Here are 3 deliciously healthy taco recipes to consider as you build your menu.
3 Healthy Taco Recipes
1. Fish Tacos
Fish tacos are traditionally made with a battered fish to give it a satisfying crunch that stands in contrast with a creamy sauce and slaw, but you can easily reimagine this idea into something that’s healthy and easy to make on your mobile food truck. It starts with getting rid of the unhealthy coating and instead using a grilled fish that’s both satisfying and free of the extra calories and gluten concerns. To contrast the soft texture, you can top it with a crunchy broccoli slaw or make a salsa with mangoes, corn, and cucumbers for an unexpected flavor myriad that’ll keep people coming back for more.
2. Pulled Chicken Tacos
Chicken is a lean alternative to beef and pork that effectively works with any spices and flavor-filled toppings you pair it with. Slow cook the chicken before you open your mobile food truck for business so it’s ready when you need it. To further reinvent tacos for your business in a healthier light, swap out the traditional shells and flour tortillas for large leafs of lettuce. Top it with chunks of avocado, jalapenos and wedges of lime.
3. Go Meatless
Tacos aren’t limited to meaty fillings. Appeal to the vegan and vegetarian crowd by creating a meatless taco. Fill these tacos lentils, crumbled tofu, black beans, butternut squash, chickpeas, or grilled zucchini or roasted cauliflower. Load these tacos to the brim with shredded purple cabbage, and peppers, and corn and top it all off with an avocado based “cream” sauce.
