Ingredients

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1/2 Cup chopped sweet onion
  • 1/4 Cup chopped zucchini
  • 1/4 Cup chopped yellow squash
  • 1/4 Cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 8 grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 Teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 Teaspoon dried oregano
  • Kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 2 small whole-wheat tortillas
  • 1 Ounce crumbled feta
  • Green chile sauce, for garnish

Directions

Heat a small nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Spray with nonstick cooking spray. Add the onion and let it cook, without stirring, for 2 minutes so that the onion just starts to brown.

Toss the onion in the pan and add the remaining vegetables. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and cover. After 2 minutes, add the basil and oregano and stir. Cover and cook for 2 more minutes.

Warm the taco shells in a skillet or in the microwave for a few seconds. Split the veggie filling between the two shells, sprinkle with feta, and finish with hot sauce.

Veggie Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Veggie Cooking Tip

Different vegetables have different cooking times – cook each type separately and then combine.
