Thank goodness its Friday! I have had such a busy week at work I'm so glad its the weekend. I didn't get in till late tonight so all I wanted to do was chill, but its Vegan Mofo and beans are still on the menu.
I wanted something super quick, super tasty and something that would fill me up. Regular readers of my blog know that Friday nights are fajita nights and tonight was no different!
On a whistle stop shop at the local Tesco's on the way home I picked up a few ingredients, which included a packet of fajita seasoning. I know, I know that's being lazy but I was hungry! I also found a tin of black beans in the world food aisle, which aren't normally stocked so a tin of those went into my basket too.
Marco, my border collie has been poorly the last few days with a tummy bug, and the vet had recommended feeding him bland food and suggested sweet potatoes, so I decided that if Marco was having sweet potato then so was I.
So I had the fajita seasoning, tortillas, sweet potato, black beans and green beans from the garden and so bean fajitas were born.
Ingredients - Serves 4
200g Green beans
1 Tin Black beans
2 Sweet potatoes
1 Large onion
4 Tbsp Tomato passata
8 Flour tortillas
Finely dice the onion, top and tail the green beans and slice length ways. Cube the sweet potatoes and add to a pan of boiling water, simmer for 10 minutes or until the potato is soft. Drain and roughly mash with a potato masher.
Meanwhile fry the onion and green beans until the onions are translucent and the beans are tender,between 5-10 minutes. Drain the black beans and rinse well. Add the beans to the pan with the sweet potato mash and stir to combine.
Add the fajita seasoning and mix in, then add the tomato passata and mix in, until everything is thoroughly combined. Stir over a very low heat to make sure everything is hot before you fill the tortillas.
Guess what arrived today! My vegan food swap parcel. I was lucky this month as my buddy was Heather, she sent me an awesome parcel in July and I was looking forward to another one. I was not disappointed, it was truly the best swap box I've received to date, it is A-M-A-zing! I'll write a post about what I received very soon, but now I'm off to delve into the delights of my parcel. See you tomorrow!
