Sweet Potato-Black Bean-Kale Tacos

With homemade tortillas!

Aside from the tortillas, this was a super lazyass meal that involved:

  • cutting a sweet potato into chunks and microwaving it for 5 minutes
  • whipping the sweet potato with unsweetened, plain soygurt
  • steaming kale in the microwave
  • and heating up black beans with jarred salsa.

For a gourmet touch, we added some pepper jack Daiya.

First Vegan MoFo post–Stuffed, baked sweet potatoes and collards

Finally, we’re posting for Vegan Mofo!

The sweet potatoes are locally grown in Pittsboro, NC, and they were delicious. We baked them for about an hour at 400, then added a touch of Earth Balance. For the filling, we sauteed 1 cup of mushrooms in a dry pan until they released their juices, then seasoned with a little salt and pepper and put aside, leaving the “jus” in the pan. Then we added about 1 cup of canned tomatoes, 1 can of white beans with the liquid, salt, pepper, sage, and garlic powder, and brought it to a boil. The beans cooked down and when most of the water was evaporated, we added the mushrooms back and cooked for another few minutes.

For the collards, just add a little olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, and cayenne with about 1.5 lbs of collards and water. Cook covered until the stems are soft and have absorbed the flavors.
