At the end of the summer there isn’t much better than cherishing the last of the tomatoes, peppers, onions, and other fresh veggies in your area. That is certainly what we have been doing in our house. I love heading to our local farmstand to browse around and on a whim grab a bunch of veggies that I then fit into our meal.
If you know me, you know that I love local food and will do anything and everything that I can to support local farms and local food movements. After I share this amazing recipe please read on to see how you can support a local farm called Heritage Farm. It is an amazing cause and I’d love for your support! And, it ends in an AWESOME giveaway that each and every one of you will just LOVE!
Now back to recipe heaven.
A favorite in our house is tacos. Lately though I have been trying to add more veggies into this meal and decrease the meat. It has been a hit and left me with a delicious meal that I am pretty sure will end up in our weekly rotation.
Meatless Pepper Tacos
15 oz. organic black beans rinsed and drained
2 Tbsp of this taco seasoning
2 Jimmy Nardello Peppers seeded and chopped (alternatively if you aren’t lucky enough to have jimmys you can use sweet peppers:)
3 baby bell peppers – keep it colorful;)
4 tomatillos chopped
1 large tomato chopped
1 sweet onion chopped
Saute peppers, tomatillos, tomato, and onions with 1 Tbsp of olive oil in a saucepan until tender. Add black beans and taco seasoning. Cook on medium until done (~5 minutes). Serve as taco “meat” in your meal.
**Lauryn’s notes: I love to eat a good hearty taco salad so I put this over greens and crispy corn tortillas! YUM!
Now back to this giveaway and what you can do to help this awesome Farm.
Heritage Farm Fare and a #FarmFare Giveaway
If you live in Philadelphia, mark your calendars for October 2nd. The 2nd Annual Heritage Farm Fare will be underway and if you aren’t there, you are seriously missing out. Some of the best restaurants in the city and on the Main Line and some of the best foodie treasures will be there under a gorgeous tent turned experience at the Belmont Mansion overlooking the city of brotherly love.
Don’t believe me? Check out my recap from last year’s event (spoiler: the pictures of the food are mouthwatering!)
Yes, this event is a dream for the foodie and a perfect night out for any couple. But it is much more than that.
Heritage Farm is an urban organic farm located in Philadelphia adjacent to The Methodist Home for Children (very close to The Belmont Mansion). It is a small organic farm that grows produce for the Home. It doesn’t stop there, it is dedicated to educating the families and children of Methodist Home and the community about healthy eating and a healthy life style. They also provide resources for the children and families to learn about farming and agriclture, career training, etc. by educating them on the process seed to sale. It is an amazing mission and one that I am in total support of.
Come and support this mission. Grab your tickets for Heritage Farm Fare and get ready for this list of participants:
