Vegan Kale Tacos
In the midst of a meat-crazed pregnancy, I did something a little crazy. I made vegan tacos. On naan bread, of all things.
It all started at my 9 month check-up, when the doctor declared that our baby was looking large. In fact, I think she repeated that sentiment several times throughout the appointment. She didn’t seem concerned, but she’s also not the one who’s going to do the pushing here. So from that point on, I’ve been trying to be a little more conscious of what I eat. And clearly a sleeve of Thin Mints doesn’t count, because everyone knows Girl Scout cookies are practically calorie free. Or something.
Back to my healthy kale tacos.
The recipe starts with a hearty kale salad that would be totally satisfying on its own. But, stuffed into a warm pita that’s already smothered in hummus, and topped with buttery avocado? It’s just plain delicious.
Let me tell you something: Moving back in with your parents in your thirties has some definite pros and cons. Cons? Living at home in your thirties. Pros? They are so happy – and I mean SO HAPPY – when we cook dinner for the family. And these tacos were no exception.
