STEP 1: Slice the cucumber in half, long way. Using a spoon, scoop out the center part of the cucumber, where the seeds are. (You can save the middle for green smoothies or juices)
In a small pan sprayed with coconut oil, heat the beans, mushrooms, onions, bell pepper and chicken (if using) for 3-5 minutes. Feel free to season with some of your favorite TIU approved seasonings! We love chili powder and cayenne!
Pour the heated bean mixture into the cucumber "tacos". Top with purple cabbage, cilantro, romaine lettuce and your favorite salsa. Garnish with lime.
