Keto Vegan Taco "Meat"

This recipe was borrowed with love from the metabolic health summit for all our Keto Vegans out there! Yes you can do Vegan Keto! The ketogenic diet is commonly contrasted with a plant-based lifestyle, but who says you can’t do both!? This plant-based “taco meat” is full of flavor, incredibly versatile, and is a perfect example of how these two worlds collide.
