Tofu and Black Bean Tacos

As most of you already know I’m not a vegetarian or a vegan but I love incorporating plant based meals into my diet. I still like to make sure they have a good protein content though as protein is satiating and leaves you feeling more satisfied and full .I love Tofu and I also love black beans, two great sources of plant based proteins.

This recipe is pretty simple and also really quick. You can increase the quantities to make them for a whole family and make them fun, just like you would a fajita night. so get your TACO on.
