Black Bean and Feta Tacos

Black_bean_and_feta_tacosI have found a lot of pleasure recently eating vegetarian meals. I always thought that a meal wouldn’t taste good if it didn’t have meat in it, but after trying more and more vegetarian options I can confidently say I swing both ways metaphorically speaking!

I do enjoy new taste experiences – that’s why I bring so many new recipes to the table. Sometimes my recipes are entirely my own ideas, sometimes inspired by others but I am sure even the celebrated chefs such as Jamie Oliver or the many that contribute to The Guardian’s renowned recipes gain their inspiration from each other. This recipe is packed full of protein, fibre, iron, vitamin a, calcium and potassium. If you are on Slimming World it is only 2 syns per portion plus your healthy extra a.

To make Black Bean and Feta Tacos you will need

A griddle pan or George Forman Grill or similar

Ingredients

2 pieces of Lo-dough

1 drained 400gm tin Black Beans

90 gms crumbled feta cheese

1/2 small red onion

1 tbsp lime juice

3 tbsp chopped fresh coriander

1 tbsp chilli powder

1 tsp ground cumin

1/2 tsp salt

Fresh lime for garnish

To serve I combined 3 tbsp fat free yoghurt with a tsp of Colmans Mint Sauce but you can use hot sauce, or any other sauce of your preference.

Method

In a bowl combine the spices, coriander, drained beans, onion, lime juice and salt and mash roughly with a fork.

Lay one of your pieces of Lo-Dough on a flat surface and spoon half of the mixture in the centre –

Crumble over the feta cheese

Wet the edges of the Lo-Dough with cold water and fold over, pressing to seal. To help you do this you can use something narrow but rounded to press down – I use the rounded handle of a knife, be careful it doesn’t tear.

Place in a low to medium heated griddle pan or on your George Foreman grill. Leave for apx 5-7 mins taking care not to burn. The higher the heat the more likely this will be. There’s no point in rushing it as the filling needs to be hot. Flip the taco over and repeat.
