Finely chop the garlic. Grate the carrot. Roughly chop the baby spinach leaves. Thinly slice the red onion. In a medium bowl, combine the baby spinach, slaw mix a, drizzle of white wine vinegar and olive oil. Toss to coat and season to taste. Set aside.


In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Cook the onion, stirring, until softened, 5-6 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium. Add the balsamic vinegar, water (for the onion) and brown sugar (for the onion) and mix well. Cook until dark and sticky, 3-5 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl.


Wipe out the frying pan and return to a medium high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook the veggie mince (see ingredients) and carrot, breaking the mince up with a spoon, until just browned, 3-4 minutes.


SPICY! The spice blend is mild, use less if you're sensitive to heat.

Add the garlic, Tex-Mex spice blend and tomato paste and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the water (for the sauce), brown sugar (for the sauce) and plant-based butter and simmer until slightly reduced, 1-2 minutes.


Microwave the mini flour tortillas on a plate for 10 second bursts, until warmed through.


Bring everything to the table to serve. Top the tortillas with the slaw, veggie mince and caramelised onion. Spoon over the plant-based aioli.
