Tacos & Bean Bowls!

Last week, we made one of my favorite go-to quick weeknight dinners — BBQ Tempeh Tacos! You just saute tempeh, coat with BBQ sauce, and spoon into tortillas with chopped pineapple and red cabbage. Plus, I added some microgreens and sprouts for good measure. 

I'm still working my way through all the recipes in The Plant-Based Athlete book, so I recently made the Engine 2 Black Beans & Rice, a contribution from Rip Esselstyn. This has brown rice, seasoned black beans, corn, bell pepper, water chesnuts (a strange but yummy addition!), and salsa. Plus, I added microgreens and sprouts. I'm growing broccoli sprouts now, and I'm trying to eat them daily! And the microgreens were in my CSA.

I also got purple hull peas in my CSA, so I made Bryant Terry's Stewed Tomatoes & Blackeyed Peas with Cornbread Croutons from Afro Vegan. This was SO GOOD. The cornbread croutons are made with chopped, baked cornbread. I made mine in the air fryer. Definitely stepped up this already-awesome bowl of legumes.

I was supposed to be going to Bonnaroo this weekend, but it's been canceled due to Hurricane Ida. BUMMER! So we're probably going somewhere else instead! I won't be blogging for the rest of the week, so I'll be back with photos of something (who knows?!) next week!

Those tacos look great, will have to make them. Sorry your Bonnaroo trip got cancelled! Hope you'll find something fun to do this weekend.

I saw on the Gram that you guys found something else to do after all!

Hi Bianca hope you guys are having a lovely alternate vacation! If you get a chance can you share how you grow your broccoli sprouts in an upcoming post? I ferment and sprout lentils but have never done broccoli/micro green sprouts.
