Crispy Black Bean Tacos With Feta & Cabbage Slaw

"This is an awesome recipe from The Bon Appétit Test Kitchen! The flavours really work well together. Not only is it fast, easy, satisfying, and delicious, it is healthy, vegetarian, and low calorie too! You can omit the feta to make it vegan. Recipe was printed in the latest Bon Appétit Magazine (Feb. 2009). To cut down the fat, eat them open-faced as a taco salad. Use a griddle to prepare multiple tacos at once."

    I was also looking to see if this recipe had been submitted. I made it after looking through Bon Appetit, and it is a standby favorite in our house. We love it!! My husband asks for it almost weekly!

    I was going to post this and found it already here. Got this recipe from the newspaper and tried it last night. This is fantastic! My husband was a little skeptical but ate them right up and said we should make them again. Great combination of flavors, easy to make, and very healthy. I did not change the recipe except to add a splash of lime juice to the beans and a pinch of sugar to the slaw. The only thing I will change next time is to make a double batch!

    Thank you so much for posting this recipe! I was looking for healthy, filling, and delicious vegetarian recipes, and this one fits the bill. Was a little leery about the flavor combination- black beans, cabbage, and feta?- but it works out wonderfully.
