Quick-pickled veggies

  • 1/2 cup daikon radish peeled and thinly julienned
  • 1/2 cup carrot peeled and thinly julienned
  • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar
  • 1/3 cup white vinegar
  • 6 oz . hot water
  • Pinch of salt

Hot Sesame Sriracha Mayo

  • 1/4 cup vegan mayo
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons sriracha hot sauce

Taco filling

  • 10 oz . package Gardein Teriyaki Chick'n Strips
  • 4 corn tortillas toasted lightly
  • 1 jalapeño thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves loosely packed
  • 1/4 cup mint leaves loosely packed


Quick-pickled veggies

  • Place all ingredients into a 12 oz. jar or container and shake until the sugar is dissolved. Chill in a refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

Hot Sesame Sriracha Mayo

  • Whisk together all ingredients in a small bowl and refrigerate until ready to assemble tacos.

Taco Assembly

  • Prepare the Gardein Teriyaki Chick'n Strips according to the package (roughly 10 minutes all together).
  • Lay out the tortillas for assembly. Divide the gardein between the four tortillas, then top each taco with roughly 2-3 tablespoons of pickled veggies, a few leaves of cilantro and mint, as many jalapeño slices as you prefer, and a tablespoon or more of the sriracha mayo sauce.
  • Serve immediately, and preferably with an ice cold beer! :)
