Black Bean Tacos with Goji Berry Salsa
Black beans are such an easy thing to have on hand so I use them in multiple recipes. They can be made into black bean veggie burgers, hummus, or these delicious tacos. Goji berry powder is a totally different ball game. It has a fruity taste and it’s packed with so many benefits. Goji berries are one of the most nutrient rich foods on earth. Goji berry powder is filled with a ton of protein, essential amino acids, rich in vitamin A (beta-carotene). It pairs very nicely with the lime juice in the salsa for these tacos.

¼ cup unsalted almonds, finely chopped
- Combine the blackberries, lime juice, goji berry powder and 2 Tbsp onion in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate this until you’re ready to serve the tacos.
