Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes

Ingredients (serves 4)

For the tacos

4 soft tortillas (or use crunchy tacos)

300g Tenderstem®, washed and trimmed

½ iceberg lettuce, shredded

2tbsp fresh coriander, chopped

100g reduced fat feta cheese

1-2 red chillies, sliced, deseeded, finely chopped

2-4 spring or salad onions, finely chopped

1 lime

For the cashew cream (optional)

100g cashews

1tbsp almond milk


To make the cashew cream, if using, place the cashews into a bowl and cover with cold water. Leave to soak for 10 minutes, or longer if you have time. Set to one side.

Fold the tortillas in half and place into a baking tray ready to be filled.

Bring a large pan of water to the boil. Drop in the Tenderstem®. Cook for 5 minutes or until just tender, drain into a colander and set to one side.

Divide the iceberg lettuce between the 4 tortillas. Sprinkle over the coriander.

Pile the Tenderstem ™ into the tacos. Sprinkle with feta cheese, chillies and spring onions.

Drain the soaked cashew nuts and tip them into a high-powered blender. Add a dash of almond milk. Blend for 5 minutes or until completely smooth. Transfer into a bowl.

Serve the loaded tacos, with a good squeeze of lime and drizzle the cashew sauce over the top.
