Serves: 4 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 pkg hard corn taco shells
  • 1 to 2 zucchini - rinsed & sliced
  • non-stick cooking spray
  • 1 pkg taco mix
  • 1 pkg grape or cherry tomatoes - rinsed & halved
  • 2 cups angel hair slaw
  • ½ cup plant-based mayo
  • Juice from ½ lime
  • ¼ cup fresh chopped cilantro
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • ¼ cup red bell pepper - finely chopped
  • 1 cup plant-based parmesan cheese
Method
  1. Toast the taco shells under the broiler in the oven for 1-2 minutes, or just as they begin to brown. They are easy to burn, so keep a close eye on them. Remove, and set aside to cool.
  2. Cover a cookie sheet with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Slice the zucchini into slices and then cut the slices into rectangular strips. Strips from one half a zucchini will fill approximately 3 tacos.
  4. Lay the zucchini strips out on the foil, and sprinkle them generously with the taco mix.
  5. Roast the zucchini in the oven at 425 degrees for ten minutes.
  6. While the zucchini roasts, make the slaw:
  7. In a medium sized bowl, combine the lime juice, mayo, cilantro, salt and pepper and stir until well combined. Add in the slaw and the bell pepper and mix until well combined.
  8. When the zucchini strips have finished roasting, use a fork to transfer the strips into taco shells. Top with slaw, tomatoes, and cheese before serving.
