Broccoli & White Bean Tacos with Lemon Yogurt Sauce

Before you go on thinking this sounds bizarre just know that...it is. But bizarre doesn't mean bad and in this case it means completely delightful.
I came to this idea when watching a food show where they traveled to sandwich shops and featured a broccoli sandwich . It looked and sounded great but I wanted to use up a stack of tortillas I had sitting around so I decided broccoli tacos was the direction I was going in. Everything else just kind of spiraled in a weird, slightly Mediterranean direction but I went with it and won't be looking back!

Roasted broccoli, buttery pine nuts, avocado and white bean spread sandwiched in between corn tortillas and drizzled with a cool lemon yogurt sauce.
