Vegan Tacos with Coconut-Lime Yogurt

taco fest

Mexican food typically doesn’t have a lot of fiber or vegetables; it’s usually beans, corn, flour, cheese, salsa and little bit of shredded lettuce.  These tacos have lots of veggies, are low calorie, super tasty and 100% vegan. The best part is that they’re delicious!

Ingredients:

  • Corn tortillas, warmed in the oven (two per person)
  • Guacamole
  • Chunky salsa (mild or hot, your choice)
  • 5.3 oz plain coconut yogurt mixed with 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Green or red hot sauce

Taco filling ingredients:

  • Green bell pepper, seeded, cored and chopped
  • Yellow onion, peeled and chopped
  • 3 medium zucchini, peeled and chopped
  • 1-15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup frozen white corn
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

Sauté onion, bell pepper and zucchini in olive oil in a large fry pan until onion is translucent and bell pepper is softened. Add herbs and spices, black beans, and corn until warmed through. Place two warmed tortillas on a plate. Then, in the following order, add guacamole, taco filling, your favorite hot sauce (only if you like it spicy), salsa, and lime yogurt.

To re-heat, warm tortillas in the oven, and heat taco filling in the microwave for 60 seconds.
