Low Carb Vegan Tacos with Leek and Avocado

leek-and-avocado-vegan-tacos-01

Our family LOVES tacos but the tortilla wraps are very high in carbs and fat. To avoid a family mutiny I served regular tacos and cheese to the family but made myself these lovely fresh and low carb tacos. They took no extra time to prepare but I did have to dirty another frying pan which in my opinion the extra clean up was well worth it.

While the family’s beef was simmering away I diced up all he vegetables and went to work. When choosing your avocado, make sure your avocado is not TOO ripe other wise you will end up with a mushy mess. While the avocado and leeks are cooking I would suggest to combine the tomato and cucumber and add a touch of baslamic vinegar. Place the mixture in the fridge until ready to build your taco. The taco will be equally as good if you if you choose to just add the tomato and cucumber without the vinegar.

There are 13.2g net carbs, 6.8g protein and 13 Weight Watchers points per 2 tacos.

    About the Author:

    Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
