Recipe prep & method

Black Beans are nutritionally dense despite their size! They are high in protein, carbohydrates, and fibre and are known for their ability to lower spikes in blood sugar post-eating. Mushrooms are low in calories, low in sodium, and a great plant source of protein and Vitamin D.

This is a super straightforward vegetarian recipe, ideal for quick lunches or light dinners.

**For extra protein add meat or Quorn minced (optional)

Method

In a saucepan add all ingredients except the taco shells, lime, red pepper, and lettuce.

Turn the heat onto medium-low and cook for 10 minutes with the lid on.

Remove from the heat and mix the red peppers, lettuce & lime juice into the beans.

Load into the taco shells and enjoy!
