Ingredients

10 ounces
frozen cubed butternut squash (or sub ~ 2 cups fresh)
3⁄4 cups
organic chickpeas (rinsed and drained)
1 tablespoon
extra virgin olive oil (or sub avocado oil)
   
juice from 1/2 a lime
1⁄2 tablespoon
Greek seasoning (I get mine at WholeFoods*)
1⁄4 cup
diced peppadew peppers (a tangy round red pepper found in the olive bar at grocery stores)
1⁄2 cup
diced cucumber
1⁄4 cup
diced red onion
4  
kalamata olives
1⁄2 cup
Good Foods' Feta Cucumber Dip
8

Notes

*Here's the Greek seasoning I like to use from Whole Foods.

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. On a greased or aluminum-lined baking sheet, lay the butternut squash cubes and chickpeas in a single layer. Brush the olive oil on top, then squeeze the lime juice and sprinkle the Greek seasoning. 
  3. Bake for 30 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  4. Meanwhile, combine the peppadews, cucumber and red onion in a small bowl. 
  5. Slice or dice the kalamata olives, removing the pits.
  6. Briefly bake or pan-fry the tortillas to warm them up, then assemble the tacos: a spoonful of the butternut and chickpeas, a spoonful of the peppadew salsa, a dollop of the feta dip, and a few slices of olive.
