Could these be any more moreish?! This was the 3rd recipe that I created for Neals Yard with the launch of their new Organic Cocoa Blend Powder to Rebalance. With the first two being sweet, I wanted to take on the challenge to make a savoury dish.

And these were exactly what I had hoped for. Chocolate and black beans are a match made in whole food heaven!
These simple tacos of warming black beans alongside the fresh zingy citrus salsa, coconut yoghurt and lime makes it perfect for lighter, warmer spring evenings. And so quick to make, which as a busy working mum, is just what I need on a week day evening!

Black Beans in Macrobiotics is pure medicine. Strengthening our kidneys and immune systems, nourishing our lower chakras giving us a feel of strength and grounding.
Pair that with the heart opening Cocoa, and this is a heart opening, deepening combination.

If you don’t have the Neals Yard Organic Cocoa Blend Powder then just swap in normal cacao powder instead. You can mix up the toppings with whatever you fancy or using up leftovers.

Enjoy my loves
