Those of you who observe my meals posts have been most likely not shocked studying the phrase “tacos” within the topic. It’s no secret that I am greater than barely smitten with Mexican and southwestern impressed meals – particularly tacos. I imply, my Facebook bio says “I like tacos” and nothing else. Yeah. That mentioned, I feel you will be shocked by this specific taco recipe. Despite the truth that it sounds difficult, it is extremely simple – and extremely scrumptious. It’s a light-yet-satisfying entree excellent for summertime, and it is turn into a staple round our home over the previous few weeks. It’s additionally some of the nutritious meals we eat, stuffed with entire grains, proteins, and wholesome fat. You’re going to adore it, I promise.
Easy Jasmine Rice, Lentil, and Quinoa Tacos
Makes eight tacos
1 cup Village Harvest Organic Benefit Protein Blend (dry/raw)
eight smooth corn tortillas
1 giant avocado (or 2 small)
1 cups natural greens (we like child spinach or spring greens)
Cook 1 cup of the Organic Benefit Protein Blend (yummy mix of natural jasmine rice, natural lentils, and natural purple quinoa) with 2-1/four cups water and produce to a boil. Cover and simmer for 20-22 minutes or till all water is absorbed. Remove from warmth, and permit to face for five minutes. While Protein Blend is standing, lower the avocado into slices and warmth every tortilla for a number of seconds on a heated pan to melt. In every tortilla, layer the Protein Blend, slices of avocado, salsa, and a handful of greens. Top with contemporary squeezed lime juice and scorching sauce. So good.
While the richness of the avocado, refreshing delicate crunch of the greens, and tang of the lime come collectively to create the prefect taste marriage, it is the Village Harvest Organic Benefit Protein Blend that makes that these (vegan!) tacos so pleasant (or as Essley describes them, “fantash-chick”). Its filling in that smart way the place you are feeling happy however not overly full – due to the mixture of protein, complicated carbohydrates, and dietary fiber it supplies. And the truth that it takes three of my favourite meals (jasmine rice, lentils, and quinoa) and permits me to cook dinner all of them in a single pot in simply 20ish minutes is large. When dinner or lunch may be this tasty and nutritious and likewise prepared in lower than a half hour with just one pot dirtied, I am all in.
The Protein Blend I exploit for these tacos is my favourite, however I additionally love (and repeatedly eat) the opposite two Village Harvest Benefit Blend varieties as effectively – Organic Antioxidant Blend (black rice, black lentils, and black quinoa) and Organic Ancient Grain Blend (millet, white quinoa, purple quinoa, and buckwheat). They every supply a uniquely scrumptious mixture of healthful goodness that works in numerous recipes. (I just like the Ancient Grain Blend with a little bit maple syrup for breakfast – so yummy.) You can seize all three on the (new!) Village Harvest Online Shop or at your native grocer. And in case your favourite retailer does not carry Benefit Blends, simply fill out this fast product request form and drop it off with a supervisor. The firm itself is fairly rad too. Village Harvest donates 1% of earnings towards packages that give again to the farmers and communities the place their merchandise are sourced, and likewise provides 1% of their staff’ time to sustainability efforts and different causes. Pretty nice, proper?
I hope you guys will give these tacos a strive. I will be hear ready while you come again to inform me how a lot your cherished them. They’re additionally nice with out the tortillas as burrito bowls, and even chilly as a facet salad. Endless prospects, my associates. Enjoy!
