Veggie Tacos and Saying Goodbye to Summer

For the past few years, we have gone out to Mountauk in mid-September for an amazing surf camp for autistic children.  It is 1) an amazing event hosted by Surfers Healing, 2) the best way to wrap up summer and 3) an easy way to maintain pescatarian status!

 

We had some amazing lobster rolls – with and without buns, but for a waterfront view like that I will gladly pass on the bun any day 🙂

 

 

 

 

And some nice sunsets…

 

 

Upon returning home, I had reached my max of seafood.  So I went for some more basic veggie tacos.  Simple recipe but really quick and easy way to get dinners loaded with flavor!

1 medium size green squash

1 medium size yellow squash

Lettuce and tomato as desired

Directions

Chop squash into roughly 1 in. pieces.  Set in a colander in sink or with paper towels under.  Sprinkle with salt. Let sit for 20 – 30 minutes until water has drained from the squash

Slice red pepper, radishes and serrano peppers

Place all the vegetables in a bowl.  Add 1 tsp. olive oil and the seasonings.  Toss until well combined

Grill the vegetables, flipping so each side is cooked through

Heat corn tortillas in a frying pan
