Meatless Monday: Lettuce Taco Board

It's one guilt-free way to get your veggies in.

By popular request, Tucson Foodie has started a series of vegan meals on Mondays. Look out for our meatless meal of the week each Monday.


Although Tucson is home to beautiful Sonoran flour tortillas, they aren’t necessary for a fantastic taco.

As a matter of fact, you don’t even need a tortilla.

At Renee’s Organic Oven, the gluten-free and vegan Lettuce Taco Board features romaine lettuce, organic black bean hummus, zucchini noodles, salsa fresca (pico de gallo), and avocado.

The cool, crisp romaine makes a light, refreshing substitute for a tortilla. It also doesn’t get soggy from salsa. The hummus and zucchini provide body, complemented by the rich avocado and chunky salsa fresca featured in these vegan tacos.

For other vegan options at Renee’s, check out the Zucchini Noodle Pasta Primavera and Vegan Crush Pizza.
