Vegan Black Bean and Guacamole Garden Taco Wraps

Black Bean Taco Wraps

Missing tacos but it’s not cheat day yet? This Black Bean Taco Wrap is completely wholesome, no meat – just vegetables. This is a dish that definitely checks all the boxes for me. It’s nutritious, appetizing, and it can be put together in only 20 minutes. No need to wait for Taco Tuesday!

I like how this dish seems so simple, yet it has different layers of flavors and textures in it. It’s a truly refreshing dish, made from mostly fresh fruits and vegetables with some sprinkle of herbs and spices. The Black Bean Taco Wraps goes perfectly with the fresh guacamole and spicy mango salsa that I serve it with. Together they have the perfect balance of creamy and tangy.

It is vegan, low-carb, keto-friendly, dairy-free, and gluten-free too. This is a completely different take on tacos, while still being loyal to all the Mexican flavors it comes with. It is meatless too and instead of using taco shells or tortilla wraps, we’re using lettuce. This keeps the calories and carbs to a minimum, so you can indulge without all the guilt.

So, What Makes A Vegan Black Bean And Guacamole Garden Taco Wrap?

Black Beans

The main star of this amazing dish are black beans. They contain various vitamins and minerals like calcium, magnesium, iron, and zinc. All of which are essential in improving bone health. It is also low in sodium while high in potassium, which makes it best for reducing the risk of high blood pressure. 

Guacamole

I mean, what’s a good taco without guac? Fret not, as long as you consume it in moderation, guacamole’s high-fat content will not make you gain a lot of weight. It can be a great weight loss ingredient since it has high fiber and potassium content. They help you stay full longer, curb your cravings, and prevent bloating.

Spicy Mango Salsa

One of the best tummy-friendly fruits, are mangoes. They are low in calories, rich in antioxidants, and a great source of fiber too. Mangoes help you feel fuller, boost your digestive health, and aids in burning unwanted fat from your body and aid in alkalizing the body and thus it is also a common ingredient in Alkaline Smoothies

Lettuce

Lettuce is a staple diet food and for good reason. It is low-fat, low-calorie, and low sodium. But it is high in almost every other vitamins and minerals that you need for a healthy body. It is rich in fiber and vitamin C, both of which are beneficial for weight loss.
