Organic Black Bean Tacos

Organic Black Bean Tacos

These tacos come together in about 15 minutes and are a perfect quick and easy weeknight dinner.

Fun to eat. The crisp of our farmers' fresh vegetables like cabbage, carrots and radishes add a nice contrasting crunch to the soft chili flavoured black bean filling and velvety smooth coconut yogurt and avocado. We topped this recipe with pumpkin seeds  for some extra texture. Quick to cook, easy to clean, make dinner in a pinch tonight.
