For the Dough

For the Filling

  • 1 tbsp oil (or stock)
  • 1 sweet onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp taco seasoning
  • 12-14 oz frozen meatless crumbles (we like Morningstar Farms or Gardein) *Can sub for tofu taco crumbles or walnut taco crumbles - see post for details
  • 1 cup black beans
  • 1 1/2 cups vegan shredded cheese
  • 3 tbsp vegan butter, melted (sub for dairy free milk if oil free)

Additional Toppings


  • In a large bowl for a stand mixer, combine flour, sugar, yeast, and salt. 
  • Turn stand mixer onto low and add in the water.
  • Once ball is formed, grease the same bowl mixed in and place the dough ball back into the bowl. 
  • Cover with a towel or plastic wrap and let sit for 60-90 minutes in a warm, draft free place until doubled.
  • While this is rising, in a large skillet over medium heat, add your oil.
  • Add in the diced onions and let saute for 2-3 minutes until softened.
  • Add in the garlic and taco seasoning and let cook for another minute.
  • Add in frozen crumbles and black beans. Stir together. Llet cook according to the package but reduce cooking time by 2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and let cool completely before adding it to the dough.
  • Once dough has doubled in size, pull out the dough and lay it out on a lightly floured surface.  
  • Using a rolling pin, roll dough into an approximately 17×25″ rectangle that is 1/4″ thick.  
  • Spoon the meatless mixture evenly over the dough.
    *Do NOT add hot mixture to dough. 
  • Sprinkle the cheese evenly across the top.
  • Carefully roll the dough into a log from the longest side up. One completely rolled, place seam side down. Cut into 12 even sized pieces.
  • Place into a greased 9x13 baking dish and cover to rise for 45-60 minutes.
  • Preheat to 350 degrees F.
  • Brush the tops with vegan butter (or dairy free milk if oil free).
  • Once heated, place dish inside and bake in oven for 30-35 minutes.
  • While cooking make vegan nacho cheese if desired.
  • Remove and let cool for a few minutes. Serve with diced tomatoes and any of your favorite taco toppings.
  • Store leftovers in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 3-5 days. Reheat by microwaving 30 seconds at a time.
