Roasted Pumpkin Tacos with Pumpkin Cashew Cream

Updated: Jun 3, 2019

Summer announced its arrival with an insufferable heat wave this year. My sweat glands are weeping, my pores are wailing, and the mere thought of turning on the oven makes me want to cry to the heavens for relief. Not a pretty picture, I know. Apologies in advance, as this surely will not be the last time I bemoan the heat this summer. Ok, so onto how I like to eat on a super busy day like this. Simply and deliciously! Like these roasted pumpkin tacos which are perfect for a #tacothursday! When two incredible things collide together like pumpkin and Mexican cuisine, something tasty is bound to happen. Sometimes the simple things bring the most delight, and in this case, I’m talking about tacos. A trip to the produce stand last week resulted in an excess of peas and pumpkin, so in my haste to find a way to use them all up I decided to roast up some pumpkin tacos. Onions and mushrooms seem at home in pumpkin tacos, don’t they? In my house, onions and mushrooms are at home in pretty much anything, but that’s just us.



Soft corn tortillas, onions cooked till they’re on the verge of caramelisation, peas, shrooms, pumpkin, peas, shrooms, crushed nachos and a drizzle of sriracha laid over a thick spread of pumpkin cashew cream. That’s what I call pumpkin taco perfection. Everybody loves tacos, right? Ok maybe not everybody, but I guess most people do, otherwise social media platforms wouldn’t have dedicated an entire day of the week to them. And since social media rules (most people’s) world… our assumption must be correct. The thing is, whether you’re a #tacothursday fanatic or someone who doesn’t speak hashtag, there are a million reasons why tacos are awesome. Ok maybe not a million, but a lot, otherwise social media platf…. never mind, I already said that. So anyway, tacos rule, and you guys, there are no words. These loaded tacos are insane. Crunchy, saucy, hearty, and utterly delicious. This is a must-try!
