I am obsessed with Thug Kitchen.
For the uninitiated, it is a vegan tumblr that talks about not eating overly-processed crap and gives recipes and tips for eating healthy, veggie-packed food. Only it is doing it with a bucketload of attitude and extreme swears. I cannot get enough.
It has only been around since late last year, but it has already won the Saveur Award’s Best New Food Blog. And with calls like “it’s taco time, bitches”, it not only cracks my shit up, but a bunch of others too.
I made the Sweet Potato and Pinto Bean Tacos, only I didn’t have no pinto beans so I used black beans. I soaked them all day and then cooked them for two hours, before following Thug’s directions. They were magical. We ate ours with avocado, onion, tomato and coriander.
You need these tacos in your life. I made corn tortillas to go with ours because I’d never made them before. I knew they had to be better than store-bought, because everything is! They were pretty fiddly and you have to do one at a time, so I can’t imagine I’d be doing them constantly! But the recipe (here) made heaps so I have a ton left over. They got easier, so who knows I might be a tortilla ninja more often.
It’s taco time, bitches.
