It’s time for tacos! and i’m not talking about grease ball tacos that stain your pants with drippings. I’m talking about local, organic and fresh tacos, with homemade tortillas.
for the tortillas, you need a press and corn flour. you can buy tortilla presses for around $15, but I just use two books covered in saran wrap and it works like a charm. for corn flour, you can find this lots of places. I found mine at a chinese market. you should try to find organic corn flour, or if not find one that says non GMO in the ingredients. Idk where you get this, but it must exist. once you procure corn flour, follow the directions on the back for mixing. my recipe to make 16 (12, really) calls for 2 cups flour and 1 1/4 cups water. and some salt. but it doesn’t need that. mix it all up and make little dough balls. then, press the balls one at a time on your press and transfer to a hot ungreased skillet. flip after about a minute and let it fry for another minute. transfer to a tortilla warmer or a plate with a napkin over it.
For my taco filling, I used carrots, cilantro, green onion and hot peppers from the Civic Center Farmer’s market. This cost me about 3 dollars, and I’m being generous. I also used a bunch of rainbow chard from Haight Street Market which cost 2 dollars. And I used half a jar of Jalfrezi sauce to sauté the veggies in from Seeds of Change which amounts to about 2 bucks. So seven dollars to feed two or three people with healthy food! Not bad.
You can use whatever greens or veggies you have, some onion, bell pepper, collard greens, kale, beets, leeks or beans maybe. And make up a sauce, buy one, or just eat em sautéed in olive oil and garlic. super simple and quick.
fill tortillas with veggies and enjoy! kombucha washes it down nicely.
