Taco Tuesday!

After seeing the movie Chef, I was inspired to step up my cooking game. I have been so busy with work that I haven't gotten the chance to experiment but I have a few things in the works.

I went to a Farmer's Market to prep for some Edith and Herbert pickled veggies and it really inspired me to create a few seasonal produce based dishes. 

I made two kinds of Tacos (duh i'm obsessed with them):
The first one was Okra and Zucchini based and the second was Micro Greens and Fig based. 

I had decided what I wanted in each taco so I prepped the veggies before I built them. I made enough for two of each- double the okra, onions, and jalapeno for 4 tacos. 

1 large Zucchini (Courgette)
3 Okra
3 Pearl Onion
2 Figs
Micro Greens
1 Jalapeno
Organic Corn Tortillas 
Heirloom Tomato Slices (Optional for some moisture)

Slice lengthwise and grill 1 large zucchini (courgette), grill 3 okras, and 3 pearl onions chopped.

Cut 2 figs into 8ths. Julienne Jalapeno.

Okra Zucchini (Courgette) Tacos:
Put spinach on one side of the tortilla. Put half of the onions in the middle and fill with okra and zucchini. Top with jalapeno. 
 Fig Micro Greens Tacos: 
Fill the middle of the tortilla with micro greens. Put figs on top of greens then add the sauerkraut. Top with jalapeno. 
I drizzled on the Olive Oil and Balsamic from the Caprese salad I had made for some moisture but slices of tomatoes can be used also.
