Time for Recipe Redux! Don’t forget to click on the icon below to check out all the great posts written by the other redux members for this month’s challenge! There are no specific amounts for this recipe so just grab enough ingredients to make how ever many tacos you (and whomever else you are cooking for) desire! Feel free to change up the meat (or sub if vegan/vegetarian) depending on what you have on hand or prefer.
The theme for this month’s recipe redux is tacos!
February 21 is a Tuesday. So show us your healthy, creative take on the taco.
Tacos are great because you can really stick whatever you want in whatever sort of “taco shell” you want and have yourself a lovely taco. I really like the flexibility this gives because you should be able to make tacos fit into your dietary preferences regardless of what that entails for you. Need some help figuring out substitutions to make for your taco recipes? Just shoot me a message, or comment below and I would be happy to give suggestions!
Anyway, for this month’s theme I decided that I really wanted to try to flex some creative juices and go outside of the typical “taco” box. I was all like:
Therefore, I apologize ahead of time if you were hoping for a traditional/Mexican themed taco because (obviously…I guess.. given the title and picture) that is not the case for this post.
I do hope that you like this Mediterranean inspired taco recipe instead, though! If you already have steak or something like it leftover then feel free to use that!
If you are looking for some more traditional takes on the taco feel free to check out some of my other posts. I’ve shared only a couple of recipes that contain the word taco in them so far. Here is one for fish tacos, a taco salad, and a vegan bowl meal that could easily be a taco filling should you choose.
Greek Inspired Tacos [Clean]
- whole wheat pita bread
- meat of choice*
- sundried tomatoes
- kalamata olives
If you don't have leftover meat, then first prepare your meat of choice*
Meanwhile, slice your pita bread so that you can stuff the middle (either 2 or 4 pieces depending on size)
Set out your hummus (click link for easy homemade tahini to DIY), sundried tomatoes, olives in bowls
Chop your lettuce into small pieces (I used romaine, but anything will work)
Once your meat is finished cooking, arrange all your dishes on the table and start putting together your tacos!
I used steak for this recipe. It can be lightly seasoned with salt/pepper or seasoning of choice and either skillet cooked (slice thinly) or grilled and then sliced.
Feel free to use whatever you would like, chicken, lamb, vegan choice if you do not want to use red meat
