But we’re all about #TacoTuesday today. Taco Tuesday for lazy people. When you’re scrolling through your feed and every taco is from a fancy vegan restaurant in L.A. plated with bottled cashew sour cream for the perfect plate art. The guacamole stacks are so wondrous they must have been piped. Avocado roses? There is so much drool inducing imagery that our impending hunger jumps over the back seat to grab the steering wheel. Hunger has control issues.
Experiencing my own out-of-control hunger issues I came up with this solution. We happened to have leftover hard shell tortillas, that in itself was miraculous. Now what to fill them with?
I didn’t feel like thawing freezer beans and flavoring them, but then my eyes landed on a can of Amy’s organic chili. We buy this in bulk a few times a year and it has saved us on many ravenous nights.
I thought why not? It has beans. Taco-ish spices. Extra veggies like tomatoes and corn. And we know it’s tasty.
All you have to do is heat it up on the stove or in the microwave, use a slotted spoon to scoop it into the taco shells and top it with whatever other veggies you have laying about. Now is a good time to use them up.
shredded carrots • cubed jicama • arugula • onion • cilantro • shredded zucchini • tomatoes • basil • cucumber • celery • colorful peppers • sauerkraut • sprouts • crimini mushrooms • shaved watermelon radish • roasted sweet potatoes • shredded cabbage • and more
We went with tomatoes, alfalfa sprouts, and sprigs of cilantro.
Roasted broccoli on the side topped with slices of kalamata olives. For the roasted broccoli, preheat oven to 350ºF, spread some broccoli florets out on a cookie sheet lined with tinfoil, drizzle said broccoli with a small amount of extra virgin olive oil (I use about 1 teaspoon), mince a few garlic cloves over the whole mess, toss around to evenly coat, and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Bake for 12-13 minutes. It’s perfectly green and tender and absolutely delicious.
Is the broccoli too much work for you? No one will judge if you have freezer vegetables instead. What do you come up with on lazy days?
