Hey everyone!! We’re on Spring Break and I’m in Dallas with the girls visiting my parents. Do you remember Spring Break as a kid or a teenager? I think I just remember lounging around the house, sleeping in late and hanging out with friends.
Since my parents live in Texas, we try to visit as much as possible so the girls can see their grandparents. Anyway, should be a really fun week!!
Let’s get to these tacos!
You guys . . these tacos are filled with some of my favorite things: swiss chard, asparagus (which I can’t get enough of these days), black beans, farro and more!
And to make these tacos even better, I made an avocado crema . . with a secret ingredient!!!
I love the avocado crema on these tacos!! Adds such a fresh and creamy taste!!! I LOVED these tacos!
This is seriously the easiest meal to throw together and so delicious! You can even make the avocado crema ahead of time and store it in your fridge. And if you have leftover filling, just eat the filling by itself for lunch! I wish I doubled the recipe so I could eat more of the farro filling!
So, click on over to The Kitchenthusiast, where I am sharing my post and this complete recipe! I hope you enjoy!

You had me at tacos! I can’t ever get enough. Can’t wait to see what the surprise component to the crema is…you’ve intrigued me!
These look amazing! I am huge fan of veggie tacos, but so many restaurants can disappoint. I wish you were working at every single one! Definitely giving these a try.

Woah…look at all of the vegetable deliciousness in these tacos! I love a good taco night, but I often look for new twists just to mix it up a bit. This farro is just the twist I needed! I hope Dallas is treating you well…we’ll be there to visit my Dad in a couple of weeks. Our paths almost crossed…haha!!

I love the sound of these. I am a big fan of tacos, especially when they are vegetarian. I am going to share these on twitter 🙂
Erin @ Miss Scrambled Egg says
So, these are adorable and so healthy. I love this option when I’m not feeling like making some chicken or cooking up some ground turkey. Usually, during spring break, we’d go to Florida to visit my grandparents. This year, my best friend is visiting me in New England from Tampa. I can’t wait. We’re going to NYC and Boston!

Farro is my favorite grain, Alice, and I made something like this filling last week with mushrooms, swiss chard and asparagus and LOVED it! Making tacos with farro is such a great idea, and I really need to do that. Have a wonderful trip!
