Today I’m sharing a super easy and healthy lunch or dinner recipe. I have been making these Tomato Basil Soft Tocos a lot recently! They came about when I bought mozzarella, tomatoes, and basil because I was going to make my Napoli Pizza. However, I forgot to make pizza dough, haha.
So, while hungry, and rummaging through my fridge I came up with this recipe for Tomato Basil Soft Tacos. We also have a lot of tortillas right now, as I buy cases online of organic tortillas from La Tortilla Factory, as I can’t buy organic tortillas here in town. So, those stuck out at me. And I wanted to add protein, so I grabbed the turkey. Tomatoes, basil, mozzarella, yellow bell pepper, and a drizzle of your favorite balsamic salad dressing, and you have a super quick and easy lunch or dinner recipe!
I use Elda’s Kitchen Organic Balsamic Vinegar Salad Dressing in this recipe. But, you can use any kind of balsamic dressing you like, or even just plain balsamic vinegar and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. And, you can even use a lemon olive oil dressing if you like, I do this sometimes as well as that’s one of my favorite dressings and it goes well with everything!
Why go organic?
You may be wondering why I push organic ingredients for everything, even savory and healthy dishes. Organic ingredients go beyond just health and wellness, and contribute so much to the taste and flavor of a recipe. So, if you think that you’re making something healthy and buying fruits, veggies, or meats so maybe you don’t need to spend the extra to go organic here – let me sway your thinking.
Organic ingredients are made in a more pure way, therefore using no additives, no GMOs, and minimal ingredients. This really allows the true ingredients to shine – and because of that their flavor shines through. Therefore, organic ingredients are more flavorful than their non organic counterparts. So, just because it’s already a healthy recipe, or you’re already buying good for you ingredients – it doesn’t mean you can skip organic! Trust me here, and make the switch. Your body and your taste buds will thank you!
So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
