Adding another easy weeknight meal to our collection! In this recipe, we bring together two of my Healthy On You Spice Blends to kick up the flavor. The gorgeous color of my cauliflower and eggplants comes from our You’re So Spain, while the lentils are cooked in our Moroccan ‘Round the Clock. The two come together in one bite to create the perfect balance of smokey and spice. We like to serve this meal on Meatless Monday in my house because it is so nutritious! Lentils are a great source of protein, so I always finish this dish feeling satisfied and full of energy. The eggplant and cauliflower are packed with fiber and beneficial nutrients like vitamin C. Fuel your body with this dish and thank me later!

Za’atar Spiced Eggplant Tacos

One of our favorite ways to use our Middle Eastern Spice is on eggplant. When you combine that with tortillas it is perfection! If you are in the mood for tacos, but want to avoid the heavy, saucy stuff, try these. You won’t be disappointed.
