Black Bean And Butternut Squash Tacos

This is a great midweek meal to have up your sleeve. Take everything to the table and let the family dive in and build their own tacos.

Serves 4 Prep 10 mins Cook 35 mins

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp The Groovy Food Company Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
  • 650g butternut squash or pumpkin, peeled, deseeded and cut into 2cm chunks
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp sweet smoked paprika
  • 1 x 400g tin black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tsp The Groovy Food Company Organic Agave Nectar, Light Amber & Mild

For the guacamole

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 150g frozen peas, defrosted
  • ½ (half) small bunch mint, leaves roughly chopped
  • 1 small bunch coriander, leaves roughly chopped
  • Zest 1 lime and juice ½ (half)

To serve

  • 100g Feta, roughly crumbled
  • 2 baby gem lettuces, shredded
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • 8-12 small soft flour tortillas

Method:

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Spoon the coconut oil into a large roasting tray and heat in the oven. Add the squash to the tray along with the cumin, smoked paprika, garlic and plenty of seasoning. Mix well and roast for 20 minutes. Tip in the black beans, drizzle over the agave, then toss everything together and roast for another 15 mins.
  2. Meanwhile make the guacamole. Mash the avocado, peas, lime zest and juice in a bowl, then stir through most of the herbs and some seasoning.
  3. Wrap the tortillas in foil and pop in the oven with the squash for the last 5 mins, to heat through.
  4. To serve let everyone dig in and make their own tacos – spread a generous spoonful of guacamole over a tortilla, then top with lettuce, 1-2 tbsp of the black bean mix, a crumbling of feta, a sprinkling of herbs and a squeeze of lime.
