Za’atar Roasted Veggie Tacos with Smoky Maple Hummus

Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

These flavorful fall veggie tacos are stuffed with a medley of tender roasted za’atar seasoned vegetables and a rich and creamy hummus seasoned with sweet maple syrup and smoked paprika.

Oh cute. It’s Tuesday and I’m posting a taco recipe. I totally didn’t plan this, but since I’m on board with tacos any day of the week, I’ll take it.

The thing about vegan tacos is this: once you do away with the idea that a taco has to have meat in it, you can do just about whatever you want. And isn’t that so much better than a boring old meat and cheese taco?

I do have a tendency to go for summer veggies when stuffing a taco. Somehow raw and crunchy seems to make sense. When I decided to create a fall taco, I just went and threw that out the window, in favor of spicy and roasty.

You could just as easily stuff the ingredients for this one into a crusty sandwich roll, and the hummus is totally delicious eaten on its own with a couple of pita wedges, but I for one am really glad to have tried this combination in taco form. The sweet and smoky hummus paired with the tangy and spicy za’atar is something you probably don’t want to miss.
