This recipe is one of those great weeknight dinners that that hits all of the right notes. Aside from being delicious, these tacos are budget-friendly, super healthy, and really simple to make! (Also gluten free, if need be, for any of the eaters in your house.)
Think warm, seasoned beans dressed in avocado crema, goat cheese, and tangy pickled onions tucked in a soft tortilla, all ready to satisfy.
White beans make a wonderful compliment (or alternative) to meat in recipes. As you know, Farmer Denis is a vegetarian (since he was 11 years old), so as a family we often choose beans over meat in our favourite recipes, enjoying a lot of dishes just like this one!
The real star in this recipe for us at the farm, is those quick-pickled red onions. Having those bright bulbs brined in a little sweetness and tangy vinegar completely livens up the whole dish. A favoured topper we like having on-hand in our refrigerator for many different meals (see our Pickled Onion post for more meal ideas with them).
The pickled onions can also be made days ahead (lasting up to two weeks in the refrigerator) making for even quicker meal prep here.
Thank you to Emily Mardell over at GetJoyfull blog for creating and sharing this delish recipe with us, and for always encouraging us to ‘fill up on family time’. We love her for that. (For more on the benefits of eating white beans and other pulses, check out her post here.)
Have a lovely week everyone!
