Spiced Roast Squash & caramelised onion tacos with Slaw (vegan & gluten-free)

I love the combination of spiced roasted squash, sweet and sticky onions combined with the lovely fresh crunchy nutty slaw. Its a squidgy, heavenly mix all loaded into cute little soft buckwheat tacos – very very tasty indeed! 

The buckwheat tacos are naturally gluten free so this is great for any allergies, but I’ve listed some additional options below.

I hope you love them as much as me xxxx


It’s an easy and healthy recipe and completely adaptable – here’s some of my favourites toppings;

  • Mixed beans with avocado

And some options for the tacos; 

  • These pancake style, naturally gluten free buckwheat versions. 
  • Shop bought if you’re pushed for time 

I'd love to know if you made this recipe.
