Black Bean Tostadas with Coriander Dressing

Black Bean Tostadas with Coriander Dressing

First of all, these tostadas are pretty messy. If you’re not keen on getting food all over your fingers, make tacos instead, they should be just as good.

A few weeks ago Meatless Monday ended up being a meatless week. On Tuesday, I made some vegetarian black bean tostadas which I served with a coriander dressing. They were fucking amazing.

I’m definitely going to be trying these again, the next time I make them I’ll add spiced shredded chicken to see what they’re like.

if you decide to make tostadas you can make your own, or buy them pre-made like we did.

Here is the recipe – if you decide to try it, let me know what you thought.

Spiced Prawn Tacos

spiced prawn tacos

Today, I’m going to share a recipe for spiced prawn tacos with you, I feel I need to start this post off by saying that when I first saw this combo of spices and prawns, I wasn’t expecting great things (cinnamon and prawns, what the hell?!)

To be honest, I thought there was no way it was going to work, and my first thought was that it was going to taste like shit…

I’ll pretty much try anything though, so pushing my doubt aside, I decided to give it shot. I’m glad I did, because holy crap, these tacos were fantastic (I actually ended making bigger batch of the spice mix, so I’ve always got some on hand)

If you make these – I hope you enjoy them, and if you do, let me know what you thought of the spice/prawn combo.

Ingredients
Taco Filling
Spice Mix
Servings: corn tortillas
Instructions
  1. In a small container, combine the spices and set aside. Then chop the prawns, place in a small bowl and cover in as much of the spice mix as you would like (it's completely up to you)
  2. Add a glug of oil and the onions to a frying pan. Cook on a medium high heat stirring occasionally until the onions start to sizzle a little. Add the tomatoes and continue cooking until onions are translucent.
  3. Add the prawns to the pan, stirring occasionally until thooked through. Remove from the heat and serve tacos with guacamole, coriander and sour cream.
Recipe Notes
  • When adding the tomatoes, add some chives or spring onions to add some more flavour.
  • We use corn tortillas, and steam them in non-stick pan without using oil (if you want yours a little crispier, you can fry them in oil until soft)
