Taco Tuesday – Vegetarian Lettuce Wraps


🌮 Mmmmm…saving this here for after the refresh!

(photo’s at the source listed below)

6 butter lettuce leaves
Seasoned black beans:
1 regular can black beans
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
salt and pepper to taste
Roasted sweet potato:
1 large sweet potato, peeled and small diced
salt and pepper
olive oil

2 radishes
½ cup fresh cut pineapple
½ avocado, diced
1 jalapeño finely sliced
¼ cup cilantro, minced
1 red bell pepper, sliced *** see notes
rice (optional)
Sweet Chile Soy Sauce:
2 tablespoons sweet chile sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
Juice of ½ a lime

Warm black beans and season.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Toss sweet potatoes with salt and pepper and enough olive oil to lightly coat them and roast until tender, stirring occasionally (about 20-30 minutes depending on dice size).

**** I like to blister my red bell peppers at the start of the week and use them for tons of dishes. This is optional of course but adds great flavor. Just char them lightly over an open flame on your gas range or broil them on each side lightly until speckled black spots appear. Cool and slice.

Slow Cooker Loaded “Baked” Sweet Potatoes

Slow Cooker Black Bean and Rice Soup


This is the recipe, but I never use the exact amounts with any recipe. I use what I have available. For this I had less beans and tomatoes so I upped the amount of rice, added some canned carrots and just watched closely.

(makes 6 servings)

In small Crockpot, combine beans, tomatoes, vegetable stock, garlic, cumin, oregano, and Chile powder  Cook on low for 6-8 hours (or 3-4 hours on high), until tomatoes are disintegrating and beans are starting to fall apart.

When soup has reached the consistency you want, turn Crockpot to high if you were cooking on low. Add 1/4 cup rice and cook until rice is done, about 30 minutes.

Add kale or cilantro and cook 5 minutes more.  Serve hot!
