1/1 Photo of Black Bean, Zucchini, & Olive Tacos
Super quick & easy but healthy & flavorful!! We usually just use the crunchy taco shells you can buy in the store. This recipe comes from Isa Chandra Moskowitz's book Appetite for Reduction - 125+ fast & filling low-fat vegan recipes. She recommends serving it with the Garlic-Lemon yogurt but its not a must.

- 2Add the garlic, olives, cumin, and coriander, and saute for 2 minutes more.
