Black Bean, Sweet Potato & Avocado Tacos


Don’t knock it till you try it.  It’s pretty darn good… and good for you!  

Here’s how to make 8 or so delicious vegan tacos:

1 package of your favorite corn tortillas
6 medium sized sweet potatoes or yams
1 tablespoon of olive oil
S&P to taste
small wedge of Purple Cabbage (about a cup shredded)
3 limes
2 tsp brown sugar
2 avocados
1 small tomato
1/4 red onion
handful of cilantro
pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)

cut sweet potatoes into 1/4″ cubes
toss with a tablespoon of olive oil and a pinch of salt
bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for about 45 minutes

Meanwhile shred cabbage, squeeze 2 limes over cabbage, add S&P, 2 tsp of brown sugar. Toss and let marinade.

Cook beans on stovetop, add cumin and S&P and let simmer until potatoes are done.

Cut avocados, tomato, red onion, cilantro, juice from one lime and mix together. Add S&P (and cayenne pepper if you like a little kick.)

Assemble tacos: warm tortilla as you see fit, add beans, sweet potatoes, avocado mixture, cabbage, then top/garnish with extra cilantro. Enjoy your vegan fiesta!
