It’s the last Monday of the month! That means I’m teaming up with my friends Come Home for Comfort, Polka-Dotty Place and Wife Mommy Me to share our favorite recipes from this past month that you HAVE to try!
This month I was getting back in the groove of cooking regularly, with the added bonus of cooking things that are healthy due to my new workout regime. So I scanned Pinterest and favorite cookbooks to find a few new favorites. And I posted those favs on IG!
This avocado pesto from The Forest Feast was SO delicious! The gnocchi wasn’t really a favorite, but over pasta it would be perfect! I bought some avocado oil on a whim while at Trader Joe’s and used it in this pesto and it was delicious!
Sweet Potato and Black Bean Tacos
This was just something I threw together one night, but it was SO good! I found a similar recipe you can follow, but here’s what I did for these delicious tacos!
1 sweet potato, diced
1 can black beans, rinsed
1 green onion, green and white parts, sliced
1 roma tomato, diced
Cumin + Garlic Powder
Lettuce (I used a kale/broccoli slaw mix)
Cook the diced sweet potato in the microwave in a bowl for about 7-10 minutes until softened. (This will help speed up the skillet time). Once cooked, add the black beans to the bowl and add a drizzle or two of olive oil. Then sprinkle with cumin, garlic powder and salt to taste. Stir until the black beans and sweet potatoes are coated. Cook in a skillet on medium heat until the sweet potatoes are browned. Turn off heat and serve on top of corn tortillas, topped with your choice of toppings. I loved fresh tomato, green onion, feta and a crunchy slaw.
Elizabeth and I whipped these up together and I thought they were delicious! You can tell by the IG picture caption that Elizabeth didn’t think so… but can you trust a toddler? These also froze well.
There were a few more recipes that were DELICIOUS but no pictures snapped. We ate them that quick. This make ahead black bean and spinach enchilada casserole was really yummy! And these lentil lettuce cups from The Forest Feast were SO good! I used sweet potato instead of butternut squash since I already had potatoes on hand.
