i have a really bad habit of buying loads upon loads of beautiful vegetables, especially this time of year. between my CSA, the 2 farmers markets that i frequent each week and my garden we are bursting at the seems with amazing produce and fruits. so my goal each week is to see how many veggies i can cram into one meal. thus, the farmers market taco was born.
fresh corn cut straight off the cob, beautiful heirloom tomatoes, hot & green peppers, kohlrabi and black olives make up this fun, flavorful and colorful no cook taco filling.
freshly picked oregano and chives brighten up the entire dish.
the veggies are simply prepared and tossed with black beans for some added protein.
if you are feeling jazzy, squeeze a bit of lime juice and a sprinkle of cumin.
the olives add a nice salty bite to the sweet veggies, the perfect addition to taco night!
throw in a generous helping guacamole and you have yourself an super easy, nutritious and amazingly tasty meal - all without breaking a sweat.

Sounds perfect to me! I would be all over these. I'm jealous of your summer bounty, because here there's been a distinct shortage of fresh veggies and fruit. And your photos are gorgeous, as always. I'm sorry it's been so long - life is really hectic here, but I'm still reading! :)ReplyDelete
Awww bummer abou your veggie shortage - if I could send you a truck load of veggies I would!Delete
No worries, I feel like I have been MIA lately too - for some reason this summer has been so incredibly busy. I hope everything is going well with the reno! xo
Yum! So many delicious veggies. I'm heading out to a garden tonight to pick a ton of veggies. Cannot wait to be inspired by the local produce and see what I come up with. Definitely going to make these tacos with generous amount of guacamole. Mmmm! :) Love the photos! Great colours!ReplyDelete
I can't wait to see how you are inspired too! The guac was the perfect topping - so so amazing!Delete
i'm going crazy over the delicious homegrown tomatoes my neighbor has been growing. and i love the addition of kohlrabi in these tacos! i'm definitely inspired to go home and make tacos tonight..with olives for a salty bite!ReplyDelete
Isn't kohlrabi amazing - it is one of those veggies I probabaly wouldn't have found out about if it wasn't for my CSA, the purple ones are so pretty too! Olives are an absolute must for Justin and I...now if only I can get over my irrational fear of making homemade tortillas :)Delete
Great idea for using up lots of veggies! I love that they can be made without having to cook any of the ingredients - can't get any fresher than that! Kohlrabi is one of my favourite veggies to eat raw, but I can never think of ways to use it in meals so I tend to just snack on it.ReplyDelete
I love roasting my kohlrabi - it totally brings out a decadent sweetness that is almost addicting!Delete
Ha--I can definitely relate to having eyes bigger than your stomach at the farmer's market! These tacos are a perfect way to cram in all those different summer vegetables. :)ReplyDelete
I have always had that problem of my eyes being bigger than my stomach (notably sweets when I was younger) at least this time around it is all in the name of fresh veggies!Delete
that is one awesomely fresh taco! i love cramming all sorts of veggies into one dish. i usually control myself, but hubbs easily gets all googly eyed and picks up loads of random veggies some days:) an then i have to figure out what to do with them.ReplyDelete
ahahaha googly eyed over vegs - love it! I serioulsy can't help ,y self when it comes to local heirloom tomatoes (the funkier the better), freshly baked breads on display and any local fruit!Delete
I am a loose cannon at the farmer's market, so I often find myself in the same situation. Such lovely tacos- especially with the kohlrabi and the corn! I'm swooning! :-)ReplyDelete
Thanks Kristy, I am so glad I'm not alone!Delete
Hahaha I am always feeling jazzy Heather so of COURSE I would add the lime and cumin ;)ReplyDelete
This is a simply beautiful meal! I just had fresh corn on the cob for the first time this summer a few days ago and I was in heaven! I love how you left the veggies nice and simple so the produce could shine. Since summer produce is so beautiful on it's own, there's no real need to fancy it up :)
Hahha I can totally tell you are a Jazzy girl - Lime and Cumin would be amazing!Delete
Isn't the first fresh cob the best :)
That's my bad habit this time of year too! I end up stuffing myself with produce at every meal just so it wont go bad before I get to it. I can't help it, everything is so beautiful :) LOVE these tacos(especially the kholrabi - aren't those delicious?)ReplyDelete
Seriously, its veggie overload at our house at everymeal - I can't help myslef, we have such a short growing season that I will take it when I can get it - next on this list this year is dilly beans!Delete
Farmers markets are the freshest of the fresh my friend, I can totally understand why you made these exquisite tacos :DReplyDelete

Beautiful! I love tacos for the fact that you can put pretty much anything in them. Love your combo here!ReplyDelete
I know right, so versatile ANY veggie would work beautifully!Delete
