For a different take on tacos, this vegetarian grilled corn and green bean version with cilantro crema is going to completely blow your mind.



For the Vegetables:

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 3 ears corn, husks removed
  • Salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 lb green beans, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • ½ medium onion, sliced

For the Crema:

  • ½ cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 oz crumbled goat cheese
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped cilantro
  • ¼ tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp honey
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

For Serving:

  • Small corn tortillas
  • Sliced radishes
  • Chopped cilantro
  • 1 cup cooked white rice (optional)


  1. Preheat grill. Rub the ears of corn with half of the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Place corn on the grill. Cook until charred and cooked through, about 2 minutes per side. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  3. Heat remaining olive oil in a medium skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, add green beans. Cook for about 5 minutes, then stir in onion and cook for an additional 5 minutes, or until the beans are crisp but cooked through and the onions have softened.
  4. To make the crema, stir together yogurt, olive oil, cheese, cilantro, cumin, honey, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl until combined.
  5. When corn is cool enough to handle, cut off the cobs and add to a large bowl. Add green beans and onions. Add crema and toss to coat evenly.
  6. Serve immediately, in corn tortillas with sliced radishes and cilantro for garnish, and rice if you like.
