Black Bean Summer Squash Tacos with Cabbage Slaw

75 Mins

Serves 2

 

  • 1/3 Cabbage, core removed
  • 1 cup dried Black Beans
  • 1 lb Patty Pan Squash
  • 2 scallions, sliced
  • 1 Broccoli Stem, peeled
  • 4 Tortillas
  • 1/4 cup Cilantro leaves, or other fresh herb (optional)
  • 4 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp minced Garlic
  • ½ Lime, juiced
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Cumin

 



Soak beans with a good amount of water overnight. Once soaked, drain and rinse. Place the beans in a large pot and cover with fresh water. Add 1 tsp salt. Place on the stovetop and bring to a boil; then, reduce flame. Simmer for 1 hour, or until desired tenderness is reached. Stir the beans a few time so they don’t stick to the bottom. Drain most of the water, leaving about 1/2 inch at the bottom. Add 1 Tbsp olive oil, minced garlic, 1/4 tsp cumin, a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for a couple minutes, stirring constantly; then, remove from heat, cover and set aside.

 

Using a mandolin or sharp chef’s knife, slice broccoli stem into paper thin rounds and cabbage into thin strips. Transfer to a medium bowl and mix in the scallions, 1 Tbsp olive oil, lime juice and 1/4 tsp of salt. Squeeze and massage the cabbage with your hands to help it release its liquid and begin wilting. Set aside.

 

Slice patty pan squash into thin rounds. Heat 2 Tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over a medium-high flame. Add the squash and cook, stirring only occasionally, until golden brown, about 10 minutes.

 

Set a large pan over a medium-low flame. Arrange 2-3 tortillas in a single layer. Flip them after 30 seconds or so. As they come off the stove, wrap them in a clean tea towel to keep them warm. Repeat with a second batch. Fill each taco with black beans and zucchini. Top with cabbage slaw and fresh herbs, if desired.
