Tamarind-Glazed Vegetables

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup, or sub with brown sugar
  • 4 teaspoons tamarind paste
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 10 ounces sweet potato, peeled and sliced into 2 to 3-inch strips, 1/4-inch thick
  • 10 ounces eggplant, sliced into 2 to 3 inch strips, 1/2-inch thick
  • 1 large red bell pepper, sliced into strips

Apple Slaw

  • 2 large apples, sliced into thin strips
  • 1 cup sliced lettuce, small handful
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup, or sub with brown sugar

Taco Ingredients

  • 6 to 8 corn tortillas
  • pico de gallo


  • Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Position an oven rack to the center position. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, mix the oil, tamarind paste, maple syrup, salt, pepper flakes and garlic powder. Set aside 1 1/2 tablespoons of the sauce. You will use it when you toss the roasted vegetables later.
  • In a medium bowl, mix the tamarind sauce with the vegetable strips. Use your hands to distribute the sauce over the vegetables.
  • Spread the vegetables over the baking sheet into an even layer. Bake vegetables for 30 minutes.
  • Toss the apple slaw ingredients together. Set the slaw aside.
  • When the vegetables are done roasting, drizzle the remaining tamarind sauce on top and mix.
  • After the roasted vegetables are done, heat up the corn tortillas over a pan. If you want to char the tortillas, heat them directly over a flame.
  • Assemble the tacos by filling them with a bit of the tamarind-glazed vegetables, apple slaw and pico de gallo. Serve immediately.
