Whole30 Recipe: Potato Tacos


Since the weather is getting much colder now, at least here in the Midwest,  eating a nice warm meal is much needed. One of my favorite meals to make before completing the Whole30 program was tacos. Since I could no longer eat corn tortillas or black beans, I decided to make potato tacos with romaine hearts as the tortilla. The recipe is as follows:


  • 5 red potatoes
  • hearts of romaine
  • yellow onion
  • 1 container of white mushrooms
  • olive oil
  • tsp paprika
  • tsp cumin
  • tsp cayenne pepper
  • tsp black pepper
  • Herdez salsa verde
  • homemade or store bought guacamole
  • 1/2 lime


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees
  2. Wash and dice all the potatoes
  3. In a small container, mix together a tsp of each of the spices
  4. Drizzle a little olive oil in a pan and add the potatoes
  5. Rub the oil and the spice mixture all over until they are evenly coated
  6. Put in potatoes in oven and bake until golden brown
  7. While potatoes are baking, chop the onions and mushrooms.
  8. Saute over medium heat with a little oil
  9. Sprinkle a little bit of the seasonings on the vegetables. When both are tender, and the onions are translucent squeeze a the juice of 1/2 a lime on top
  10. Separate one romaine heart and rinse
  11. Take the potatoes out of the oven. When cool, assemble your tacos.
  12. Inside each lettuce leaf, put a spoonful of the potatoes.
  13. Top with the onions and mushrooms, salsa verde ,and guacamole.

We enjoyed these delicious tacos with a hot bowl of vegan creamy tomato basil soup. If you haven’t done so already, check out my other Whole30 recipe: red and green salad.
