Grilled Winter Squash Tacos

Using grilled winter squash instead of meat brings a tasty twist to this taco. Serve with a zesty quinoa salad.

Makes four servings


  • 1 butternut squash, about 11/2 pounds, peeled, seeded and cut into ¼-inch slices
  • 4 thick slices red onion
  • 1 tbs. olive oil
  • 2 tsp. ground coriander
  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • Cayenne pepper to taste
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 6 radishes, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup shredded napa cabbage
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup crumbled Cotija cheese or feta cheese


Heat a grill pan or grill. Toss the sliced squash and onion with the olive oil and spices, and cook until just tender. Serve in tortillas and add fresh toppings.
