Nutritional values

These turkey tacos are an excellent source of protein and contain a remarkably high content of niacin. This B-vitamin supports the regeneration of skin, nerves, and muscles.

For a delicious vegetarian alternative try replacing the turkey meat with smoked tofu. Instead of basil, you can also use flat-leaf parsley.
