Vegan Cinco de Mayo

To make your fiesta accessible for everyone, throw some of these yummy vegan recipes into the mix.

Margaritas

You CANNOT throw a Cinco de Mayo Party without the help of some delightfully refreshing tequila cocktails. Check out my favorite Margarita cocktails.

DRINKSQUICK AND EASY

Spicy Grapefruit Margarita

The Edgy Veg

This spicy twist on a traditional Mexican favorite is perfect for Cinco de Mayo!

DRINKSVEGAN

Orange Margarita

The Edgy Veg

For the sweet tooths, try this sugary twist on a Mexican favorite!

Carnitas

Carnitas anyone?! Carnitas literally translated mean “little meats,” but as a vegan, I am happy to change that term to “little bites” since no pigs were harmed during the creation of this recipe. The “meat” in this recipe is created with the use of Jackfruit. Jackfruit, when cooked and pulled with a fork, looks and tastes exactly like pulled pork!

LUNCHSIDE DISH

Vegetarian Pulled Pork Tacos

The Edgy Veg

Learn how to make easy Vegetarian Pulled Pork Tacos using jackfruit! Young jackfruit, much like tofu, has no taste and simply absorbs the flavor of whatever you cook it with. This means you can marinate young jackfruit to resemble whatever meat you need!

Tex-Mex

While Taco Bell isn’t what I (or anyone else) would call traditional Mexican cuisine, it is Tex-Mex and is now part of the Mexican-style food landscape. My vegan version of the Cheesy Gordita Crunch is a fun and delicious snack or meal alongside a stiff and fresh margarita!

Time Crunch

Want to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, but are on a time crunch? These delicious vegan fajitas can be made in 15 mins, so you can celebrate while not having to work too hard. Grab yourself a cocktail, put on some mariachi music, and enjoy!

LUNCHAPPETIZERS

Easy Vegan Fajitas

The Edgy Veg

This scrumptious fajita recipe is not only great tasting but actually takes only 15 minutes or less to make from start to finish (unless you’re a slow veggie chopper).

Happy Cinco de Mayo!
