Sometimes all you’re craving is a simple, no-fuss, healthy meal. I have had my fair share of having no energy to want to cook dinner and having minimal ingredients in my kitchen. However, you don’t need to sacrific taste when cooking an easy and fast meal.
These cumin-spiced black bean tacos are packed with flavor, texture, and nutrients. Great kick of protein from the black beans, healthy fats from the avocado and dressing, and variety of vitamins and minerals from the vegetables, such as vitamin K, potassium, and fiber.
Black bean tacos are always my go-to when I am feeling lazy in the kitchen. Simply heat up some beans with some spices, saute your favorite vegetables, and top with a flavorful dressing!
My absolute favorite dressing right now is the Green Goddess Dressing from trader joes. It’s filled with simple, wholesome ingredients and is packed with flavor.
