Easy Vegan Dinner Idea

Vegan tacos

Hey mama I’m sorry I haven’t shared a post with you in a week. My sweet Lola dog unexpectedly passed away and it has truly been heartbreaking. I have had Lola for the past 10 ½ years and we have been through everything together. Nothing can prepare you for the loss of the first pet you love so much. My heart has been hurting and I have taken this time to have a little break from all things social media.

Lola

Thank you for understanding and for all of your sweet messages via Instagram and Facebook, it really meant so much to me.

I have been dying to get back to sharing some healthy stuff with you so let’s get to it!

I whipped up this easy vegan soft taco recipe the other night and was really impressed with how fast it was done, so I obviously had to share with you.

This dinner should take you 20 min or less to make.

Here’s what you need:


Ingredients

  • 2 small sweet potatoes, diced in cubes  
  • 1 can organic black beans
  • ½ package of tempeh, cut in small chunks
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced in thin strips  
  • ¼ yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 cup swiss chard, chopped
  • Trader Joe’s avocado cilantro dressing
  • Flour tortillas

 

Directions

  1. Place diced sweet potatoes in a pan with 1-2 tbsp olive oil on medium heat. I covered the pan with a lid to cook them faster, I recommend doing this stirring frequently for about 10 minutes.
  2. In a separate pan heat 1 tbsp olive oil and stir fry the beans, bell pepper, tempeh, and onion for about 10 minutes. You can season if you want or add some sea salt. I typically buy taco seasoning from Trader Joe’s and do a tiny bit just to give some added flavor.
  3. Once sweet potatoes are soft enough add them to the rest of the veggies and beans, and throw in your swiss chard, stirring frequently until chard wilts. 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add your cooked mixture to a flour tortilla and dress with the avocado cilantro dressing and enjoy!

 

This recipe is full of vitamins, iron, and protein from all the plant food!! PLUS it’s a heart meal so it will have you feeling satisfied.

Jack even ate the mix with a side of tortilla which had me saying a silent “thank you Jesus”. He is still being so piiiiicky it’s making me crazy!

Lots of goodies coming your way in the coming weeks PLUS 2 giveaways! So stay tuned!!

What is one of your healthy go-to meals?
