Black Bean, Zucchini, & Olive Tacos

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Mindelicious

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.

This is a tasty and filling recipe! Preparation is quick! We used Greek plain yogurt as we aren't vegan and canned jalapenos to make things easier. This one's a winner and I plan to make it again.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat a heavy bottomed skille tover medium-high heat. Pour in the oil and add the zucchini and jalapeno, sprinkle with the salt. Saute for about 7 minutes, or until the zucchini is lightly browned.
  2. Add the garlic, olives, cumin, and coriander, and saute for 2 minutes more.
  3. Add the salsa verde and black beans and cook for 5 minutes. The salsa should reduce a bit so its not soupy.
  4. Mix the ingredients for the Garlic-Lemon Yogurt if your using.
  5. Warm the tortillas in a skillet or wrap in a moist towel & nuke for a minute. Assembly the tacos by adding the filling, yogurt, and topping with scallions. Enjoy!
