Serves: 2 people or 1 hungry person

Ingredients:
4 small soft tortillas, warmed
1 cup grated MyLife Biocheese
Hot sauce, to finish

For the vegan garlic aioli:
2 tbsp full cream coconut milk
1 cup olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 garlic clove, grated
Salt to taste

For the guacamole:
1 avocado
Juice of one lime
2 tbsp chopped coriander
1/4 clove of garlic, crushed
1/2 tsp olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste

For the salsa:
1 tomato, diced
1/2 red onion, diced
2 tbsp chopped coriander
Juice of 1 lime
Salt and pepper, to taste

For the corn and bean mix:
1 cup mixed beans of your choice (i.e. red kidney beans, borlotti beans, black beans) soaked overnight and then drained, or drained canned beans
1 cup corn kernels
1 brown onion, diced
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp paprika
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Salt and pepper, to taste

METHOD:
For the aioli:
1. Using a stick mixer and accompanying stick mixer jug, add the lemon juice and coconut milk to the jug and mix until well blended.

2. Add the olive oil in a thin, steady stream, slowly and until mixture becomes creamy and thickens. Add the garlic and salt and continue to mix well. Put mayonnaise in the refrigerator to allow to thicken some more and reserve for later.

For the guacamole:
3. Scoop out the avocado flesh and put in a medium-sized bowl. Mash the avocado with a fork to desired smoothness. Add the rest of the guacamole ingredients and mix well. Cover and reserve for later.

For the salsa:
4. In a medium-sized bowl, add all the ingredients and mix well. Reserve for later.

For the corn and bean mix:
5. Saute the onion and garlic in the olive oil until soft. Add corn along with paprika, and after warming through, add the beans and cook for five minutes. Add lemon juice and toss through. Season to taste.

To assemble tacos:
6. Take warmed tortillas and arrange on a large plate. Spread each one with a spoonful of guacamole. Top with a spoonful of the bean mix, a spoonful of salsa and a sprinkling of MyLife Biocheese.

7. Serve with hot sauce and garlic aioli and a couple of wedges of lime. Enjoy!
