beans, Cabbage, Main Course


  • 3-6 leaves purple cabbage whole
  • 1, 15-oz can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 2 tbsp shelled hemp hearts
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1 lime sliced into wedges
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste

Optional Toppings

  • shredded lettuce or mixed greens
  • fresh avocado slices or guacomole
  • pico de gallo or salsa
  • hot sauce or sliced jalapeno for a spicy kick


  • Arrange the cabbage leaves onto a plate. Double them up if they're thin or ripped so they're hearty enough to hold all of your toppings.
  • Add the black beans, smoked paprika, cumin, a splash of water, and a pinch of salt and pepper to a small saucepan. Cover, and cook over low heat until warmed through.
  • Divide the spiced black beans into the cabbage cup "taco shells" and sprinkle with hemp hearts, cilantro, lime juice, and another pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Arrange with any additional toppings of choice.
