Recipe Card


  • 4 bunches baby broccoli (or n2 bunches of broccoli florets)
  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 2 avocados
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • pinch pepper
  • 8 small corn (GF, if desired) or flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup pickled onions
  • 1/4 cup mint, sliced
  • 8 small radishes, sliced
  • 1/4 cup green onions, sliced
  • drizzle olive oil


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 400F.

  • Step 2

    Trim ends of asparagus and baby broccoli (if using normal broccoli, just use the florets as they get crispy!). Lay out asparagus and baby broccoli on a large pan. Drizzle with avocado oil oil and toss to coat. Sprinkle with salt and a little pepper. Slice half of a lemon into thin slices and lay slices among the veggies, but not completely covering them.

  • Step 3

    Roast veggies for 15minutes - 20minutes, depending on how crispy you want them!

  • Step 4

    Meanwhile, cut avocados in half, remove pit, and scoop out flesh with a spool or peel off the peel by lifting the edge a little bit and tearing it off.

  • Step 5

    Remove veggies from oven and put in a bowl to serve with tacos, or straight onto the taco shells!

  • Step 6

    Place avocados into oven and broil for a minute or so. KEEP AN EYE ON THEM so they don’t burn too much. A little char is good! Remove from the oven and slice. Place a couple slices (about 1/4 of an avocado) onto each taco.

  • Step 7

    Top tacos with mint, radishes, pickled onions, green onions, a drizzle of olive oil, and some salt and pepper. Enjoy!
