Roasted Vegetable Tacos

roasted vegetable tacos

I am always looking for interesting taco fillings. I experimented recently with roasted vegetables. The key is to cut the vegetables small (1/4-inch cubes) and roast them well with taco seasoning. I don’t like to use premade taco seasoning because of the high salt. It is super easy to make your own using this recipe. I use corn tortillas and a topping of just shredded cabbage mixed with lime.

Roasted Vegetable Tacos

1 medium onion

1 zucchini

1 yellow squash

3 large carrots

8 ounce container of white mushrooms or baby bellas

3 Tablespoons olive oil

2 Tablespoons taco seasoning

½ teaspoon salt

 

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Cut the vegetables into a ¼ inch dice. This takes a few minutes but your work will be well worth it in the end. It is a good time to practice your knife skills!
  3. Toss the cut vegetables with the olive oil, taco seasoning, and salt. You can do this in a large bowl or plastic bag.
  4. Place the vegetable mixture on a sheet pan lined with foil. This makes clean up easy.
  5. Cook the vegetable mixture 45 min to 1 hour stirring half the way through.
  6. Assemble the tacos on warmed tortillas.
