These tacos are the perfect plant-based mid-week throw together meal. Quick from start to finish but bursting with flavor, you’ll be sure to add this to your weekly meal rotation. When mangos are not in season, simply leave it out or substitute with avocado for an equally creamy result. If the kids can’t do cabbage or onion, just swap it out for grated carrot, beetroot and cherry tomatoes.
