Seared summer squash and black bean tacos with cabbage slaw
Gluten-Free, Vegetarian, Soy-Free
30 – 40 Minutes
Seasoned with our custom spice blend, black beans give these vegetarian tacos heft and protein, while summer squash, bell peppers, and mildly spicy poblanos deliver earthy sweetness. A pinch of sugar in the crisp cabbage slaw highlights the salty-savory notes of the tacos; feel free to swap in honey or maple syrup, or omit the sugar altogether.
