To celebrate 5 de Mayo (not really, it was just a good excuse to have some tacos!) I made these incredibly easy, delicious and colorful lettuce tacos that have been a total success and I’m sure you’re gonna love too!
I made the recipe video for the tacos and post it a few days ago, all my Spanish speaking followers loved it and I think is a great recipe for everyone to try!
Gastrawnomica’s VEGAN Jicama & Butternut Squash Tacos!
1 head of Romaine lettuce
1/2 large butternut squash, peeled, cubed & steamed
1/2 a medium jicama, peeled and chopped
1 small lemon
3-4 scallions, chopped
1 large avocado, sliced thinly
1/2 cup tomatoes, chopped
Orégano or other herbs of choice
Start by steaming your squash, once it is ready let it cool down for a few minutes. Put your jicama slices in your food processor until you have a rice consistency. Transfer to a medium bowl and mix with lemon juice and chives.
In a large plate, assemble your lettuce and fill each one with the jicama rice, squash, tomatoes, avocado and herbs of choice.
Serve right away and enjoy! Feel free to add other toppings of your choice like hemp seeds or even drizzle with a little bit of tahini dressing.
Hope you like it and let me know what you think!
