superfood tacos with avocado cashew cream

I’m not sure if there is any other meal that contains so many superfoods!  These tacos are overflowing with “good for you” flavor!   I could go on for days about the nutrients in the beans, sweet potatoes, kale, etc.

But, I’ll save you the details and sum it up by saying…these tacos are the bomb!

Superfood Tacos

The tacos would be great on their own or with sliced avocado but, I recommend going the extra step to make the avocado cashew cream!  It’s a great substitution for sour cream or cheese and kept this dish light by adding a hint of lime!
