I love food and preparing beautiful meals, but I don’t like meal planning or wasting food. I know meal planning can save time and money, but I’ve never been very good at it or interested in getting better. The easiest way to stress less about “what’s for dinner?” and to spend less money on food is to eat more of the same thing each week.
Part of my Declutter Your World in 10 Days Challenge is to eat the same 3 or 4 meals all week. I don’t mind getting hooked on a few favorites for weeks at a time. Right now there is one simple meal being served here almost everyday that provides awesome nutrition, crazy flavor and even a little variety.
Simple vegan street tacos
- Earth Balance (vegan spread) or oil
- corn tortillas
- black beans
- spicy peppers
- sweet peppers
- lemon zest
Crisp up corn tortillas in a pan with a little Earth Balance or oil so they have a bit of crunch but are still soft enough to fold. Add your ingredients and enjoy. Don’t underestimate the lemon zest. It calms the spicy peppers and adds wonderful flavor.
Any left over ingredients can be used for your next meal.
When I get bored with simple vegan street tacos, or when tomatoes go out of season (whichever comes first), I’ll move on to a few of my other favorite meals or create something new. For more simple, healthy recipes, check out Paul’s book Eat Awesome. These street tacos were inspired by his Mexican Feast.
