CARROT & BLACK BEAN TACOS

Carrot & Black Bean Tacos

Ingredients:

  • 3 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, diced
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 (15.5-oz.) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lime juice, plus wedges for serving
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 lb. medium carrots, cut into 3" to 4" sticks
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 8 whole-grain taco shells, warmed
  • Sliced avocado, salsa, and chopped fresh cilantro and radishes, for serving

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Add chili powder and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add black beans and 1/3 cup water. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, 4 to 6 minutes. Mash beans with the back of the spoon until thick. Stir in lime juice. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Meanwhile, toss carrots with cumin and 1 1/2 tablespoons oil on a rimmed baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Roast, turning once, until just tender, 10 to 12 minutes.
  3. Divide beans and carrots between taco shells. Top with avocado, salsa, cilantro, and radishes. Serve with lime wedges alongside.
