::Black Bean & Eggplant Tacos::

I was recently introduced to eggplant. Not that I did not know it existed before, but I was completely unaware of how nutritious it is. For the past month I have been chopping up eggplant and putting it in everything, most recently black bean & eggplant tacos. A super easy and quick dinner idea for Meatless Monday and the left overs store well for lunch the next day!
