{meatless monday} – super easy and pretty rainbow tacos

20 Aug

these could not be simpler.  nor more delicious and healthy and light and good for you.

– whole wheat locally made tortillas, warm them up if you like

– organic black beans, drained and slightly heated via stovetop w/ a little S&P

– fresh avocado, chopped

– organic cherry tomatoes, chopped

– organic sharp cheddar cheese, shredded {normally i’d buy white, but the colour is only from annatto and i’m down with that, because it makes the rainbow in my rainbow tacos look really great…}

– sweet onion, diced

pile it up – any form you’d like really – i just try to create a rainbow…

– beans, avocado, cheese, tomato, onion, S&P

when i first tried this meal i commented on how when i took a bite, it looked like a rainbow… like this :

but really, who cares how you pile it up – when you take a bite, all that yummy flavour takes over and it doesn’t matter…

well, i guess that’s not true – i always think aesthetics matter.  but you know, i’m an artist – i would.

    I LOVE food like this! I’m a very tactile person, so I like finger foods or stuff that you hold. Also, food on sticks. I have a passion for food on sticks.

        ACK!!! I used to want to open a mashed potato truck! I wanted to serve endless variations of mashed potatoes, served in a paper cone with a little fork or spoon. Spork maybe? I was going to call it “SMASHED!” and it would be a HIT in bar districts everywhere. And every once in a while I would have give-aways and people would get tank tops and bumper stickers that say “I got SMASHED last night!” and stuff like that.

        It’s possible that I may have over-thought this one…
