Hi Everyone!

Hope you're all having a fantastic week! I had a great weekend and was able to have a catch up lunch with my closest girlfriends and we topped it off with some lattes. It was so lovely to see them and to talk about real matters: family, marriage, careers, life passions.  As I practice gratitude more often these days, I feel so blessed to have them in my life.

On the Sunday, I developed this recipe on trial basis.  I made these easy and quick Black Bean Tacos (vegan) and they turned out so great!  I was so surprised because I'm actually not that familiar with Mexican cuisine and I want to grow in that flavour profile.  For this recipe, I'm using Yves Veggie Cuisine organic canned black beans, La Tortilla Factory non-GMO wholewheat tortillas, Tofutti Sour Cream, Earth Island Cheddar Cheese, black bean salsa, Terra Delyssa organic olive oil, avocado, lime juice, white onion, fresh coriander, romaine lettuce and a variety of spices.

I sure hope you enjoy this recipe and if you do, please share it with your family and friends. 

Take care,

Christie

BLACK BEAN TACO RECIPE (VEGAN)

YIELDS 5 TACOS |  PREP TIME 10 MINS | COOK TIME 7 MINS  |  ASSEMBLY TIME 5-10 MINS

INGREDIENTS

  • 5 wholewheat taco tortillas

Beans: 

  • 1 can (398 ml) Organic Black Beans, washed and drained
  • 1 small white onion, diced
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 paprika powder
  • pinch of chilli powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 tbsp organic extra virgin olive oil

Toppings: 

  • Romaine lettuce, chopped
  • Tomato Salsa
  • Vegan Sour Cream
  • Vegan Cheddar Cheese, shredded
  • 1 avocado mashed seasoned with juice of 1/2 lime and salt to taste
  • Fresh coriander

Require: non-stick pot & flat plan

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a small non-stick pot set on medium heat, add 1 tbsp of olive oil.  Add in your diced onions and fry until translucent, about 1-2 minutes. Lower heat to low setting, add in black beans. Once you see steam rise from the black beans, squeeze in juice of 1/2 lime and sprinkle in all your spices and salt and pepper to taste. Stir gently to avoid breaking up the beans. Fry for another 5 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile warm your flat plan on medium setting.  Once warm enough, lay in a tortilla and flip after 30 seconds or so.  You only want to heat it up until it's soft and malleable.
  3. Once tacos and beans are ready. Assemble your tacos with your favourite toppings as suggested above.  Serve immediately and enjoy!
