I’ve been getting lots of green garlic and kale in my CSA box lately, so I thought..why not make tacos?! Green garlic is simply young garlic that has been thinned out of the vegetable beds. It resembles and tastes like scallions, but with a more garlicky flavor. It’s often at the farmers market in spring, but you can use scallions if you can’t find it. I cook it with a bit of kale and serve it with black beans inside of warm corn tortillas. Top with some greek yogurt and hot sauce, and a squeeze of lemon, if you like. I like to serve them with a platter of crispy cucumber spears, drizzled with lemon juice, cayenne and garlic salt. Yum! This recipe (with one can of beans) makes enough for about 6 tacos. Enjoy!
You can tell it’s summer when corn shows up in your CSA box. Sweet and crunchy- nothing like it! Roast it up with a little cauliflower to make a tasty, light taco filling (no beans, rice or meat needed!). Flour or corn tortillas work, and you could use sour cream instead of greek yogurt. For hot sauce, I used good ol’ Tapatio. Enjoy!
