Veggie Hummus Tacos
I never stopped dreaming of the tacos my daughter made so I tried to recreate them, here is my version of Veggie Hummus Tacos 🙂
This recipe is inspired by my oldest daughter, who came over one day to make her ole momma some dinner.
She made veggie tacos and they were so good!
I am married to the most steak – chicken wing – beer – loving man on this planet!
Even he absolutely LOVED these!
If I can get him to eat veggies and like them, you know these are pure magic!
How to make Veggie Hummus Tacos
The veggies I used were sweet potato, zucchini, red pepper, red onion, mushrooms, and kale.
Honestly I wanted to put radish in these but the store was out of radishes (kind of a random thing to be out of, but whatever…).
I had some extra kale at home so I used that.
The first step is dicing up the sweet potato and throwing that into a large skillet over medium heat with olive oil.
And season with kosher salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes.
The sweet potato will cook for about 5 minutes first because it takes longer to cook sweet potatoes compared to the other veggies.
As the sweet potato cooks, dice up all of the other veggies.
Add everything except the kale, again the cook time is different.
So I am timing according to that so everything is cooked perfectly at the end.
Also, seasoning in layers, add more olive oil, kosher salt, pepper, as well as chili powder, paprika, and cumin.
About 7 to 8 minutes, stirring as it cooks and these will be ready 🙂
Then add the kale and garlic and cook a few more minutes.
The kale will cook down A LOT!
Once the veggies are done add fresh lemon juice and taste for seasoning.
Add more if needed and then you are ready to assemble the Veggie Hummus Tacos.
I used low carb street taco size tortillas for this dish.
Pile as many veggies as you can fit in your tortilla, top with hummus, and crumbled feta cheese.
Because everything is betta with feta of course 😉
Make it your own by adding anything else you prefer, such as cilantro, hot sauce, jalapenos…
Whatever taco toppings you like.
