It may not be Tuesday, but who cares because every day is taco day in this house! Especially when it comes to veggie tacos because the possibilities are ENDLESS. Today I’m sharing these Black Bean Cauliflower Tacos with roasted sweet potatoes and a KILLER chimichurri yogurt, and sharing my secret to preparing canned beans that taste like they came straight from a Mexican restaurant.

As you may know, I tend towards a *mostly* plant based diet, occasionally consuming seafood. So I love sourcing vegetarian forms of protein for my meals, and beans are one of the primary ways I make sure to get my protein intake these days.

I’m partnering with S & W Beans for this recipe and I couldn’t be happier about it. They’re setting the industry standard when it comes to quality canned beans- did you know they’ve been in business for over 120 years? How incredible is that? I chose their Premium Organic Black Beans for these Black Bean Cauliflower Tacos because if organic is ever an option, you know I’m all about it, but I also love that they offer reduced sodium options on some of their beans.

So, the organic black beans form the base for these hearty vegetarian tacos, and here’s my super simple trick for getting rich tasting beans right out of the can: I simmer the beans AND the canning liquid on low heat until the liquid is absorbed. I also throw in a clove of garlic, a pinch of salt and a few stems of cilantro so all those flavors can infuse into the beans as they simmer. I learned this trick on Goop a few years ago and I never looked back!

I’ll cook the beans while the cauliflower and sweet potatoes are roasting and prepare the chimichurri yogurt during this time too- it’s just your basic chimichurri sauce with some Greek yogurt added to the mix. So easy but it packs tons flavor into your tacos, or whatever else you may want to use it for!

Everything is done at about the same time, making these Black Bean Cauliflower Tacos a super convenient dinner for your busy weeknight meal planning. We also used the leftovers to make burritos for lunch the next day and they did not disappoint!
