Vegetarian Charred Corn Tacos With Radish Mint Zucchini Slaw

Corn Lime cheese Taco recipe


Charred Corn Tacos with  Radish Mint Zucchini Slaw

• 4 ears yellow corn
• Extra virgin olive oil, as needed
• Salt and freshly ground pepper, as needed
• 1/2 cup torn cilantro, parsley and mint leaves
• 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
• 2-1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
• 1 teaspoon agave syrup
• 1 cup red radishes, cut into matchsticks
• 1 small zucchini, cut into matchsticks
• 1 jalapeno, seeded and thinly sliced
• 1/2 cup (2-1/2 ounces) crumbled cotija or feta cheese
• 10 to 12 small (6-inch) soft corn tortillas


Brush the corn with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Over a hot grill or an open gas-stove flame char the ears of corn until well-blackened but not completely burnt. Remove from heat; cool. With a large knife, shave off kernels into a bowl.

Add cilantro, parsley and mint; reserve.

In a small bowl, combine onion and lime juice; let stand 10 minutes. Stir in the agave syrup, radishes, zucchini, jalapeno and 2 tablespoons of oil. Season with salt and pepper; set aside.

Heat your tortillas one of two ways: Wrap the whole stack in foil and place in a warm 250°F oven for 15 minutes, or coat a cast-iron skillet with thin layer of oil and heat over high heat; warm each tortilla 30 seconds to 1 minute each side, until lightly blistered.
To make tacos, fill each tortilla with 1/4 cup corn. Top with cheese and radish-zucchini slaw. Serve with lime wedges, if desired.
