The next time you’re craving Asian flavors, skip the chopsticks and pile this tasty assortment of colorful veggies into spicy vegan tacos. To make the filling, the vegetables are quick-steamed in a skillet, then finished with a sauce made with ginger, garlic, tamari, and rice vinegar that gets a bit of heat from red pepper flakes. Feel free to switch out the vegetables for whatever is in season, but try to include a variety of textures. You can also use the filling to make burritos with rice.

Ingredients

  • 1 large butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into ¾- to 1-inch cubes (6 cups)
  • 8 ounces button mushrooms, sliced (3 cups)
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 cup thinly sliced carrots
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 5 teaspoons low-sodium tamari or soy sauce
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

  • 24 6-inch white corn tortillas, warmed
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced scallions (white and green parts)

Instructions

  1. Combine the squash and ¼ cup water in a 12-inch nonstick skillet. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, for 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in the mushrooms, broccoli, and carrots. Simmer, covered, for 5 minutes more.
  2. Combine the cornstarch, tamari, garlic, ginger, vinegar, and crushed red pepper in a small bowl. Stir in ¼ cup water.
  3. Add the tamari mixture and Swiss chard to the vegetables in the skillet. Cook for 1 minute, stirring occasionally and adding ¼ to ½ cup water to reach the desired consistency.
