Roasted Broccoli and Peppers Tacos…A Fresh Recipe From Sweet Basil

Roasted Broccoli and Peppers Tacos…great as a Vegetarian dish with your favorite beans…or add chicken or beef for the meat lovers version. Either way is delicious! Top with         Roasted Poblano Guacamole or Roasted Poblano Salsa…Good enough to make you forget it’s winter and you’re not on a beach in Cancun…Almost 😉


1 bunch broccoli, washed and bottoms of stalks trimmed (keep any leaves)
2 large poblano peppers, washed, seeded and cut into ½” strips
1 small onion, thinly sliced and separated into rings
3 Tablespoons olive oil
½ teaspoon of coarse sea salt or Kosher salt
Zest of 1 lime + juice
1 pack of white or yellow soft corn tortillas (use hard shell if you prefer)


Preheat the oven to 425°.
Slice the broccoli and stalks into very thin slices, about ¼” wide and 1½” long.
In a mixing bowl, add the broccoli, peppers and onions. Toss with the olive oil and salt until fully coated. Transfer to a roasting pan and roast for 15-20 minutes until the broccoli edges are brown and the peppers are tender with a knife.
While the broccoli and peppers roast, wrap the tortillas in aluminum foil and place on the lower rack in oven.
When the broccoli and peppers are done, remove from the oven, stir in the lime zest and juice, and keep covered until ready to serve.

Enjoy!                                 John 3:16
