  • 8 authentic corn tortillas
  • ½ butternut squash about 2 cups cubed
  • drizzle extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup beet sauerkraut as an alternative, finely shredded fresh red cabbage
  • 2 small radishes sliced thin on a mandolin
  • 1 heaped cup refried black beans see notes for link to recipe or use canned beans


  • 2 avocados medium-large
  • ½ red onion finely sliced
  • 1 bunch fresh coriander/cilantro chopped
  • 5g sheet toasted nori torn
  • juice of one lime
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • pinch fine sea salt
  • black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons scallions/spring onions sliced, to serve



  • Pre-heat oven at 180˚C (356˚F). Peel and dice the butternut, then lightly coat in olive oil. Space them out in a baking tray and roast till golden, approximately 30 minutes.
  • In a dry frying pan, heat the corn tortillas one at a time – or warm in the oven.
  • Spoon a couple of tablespoons each of the refried black beans and nori guacamole over the centre of each tortilla, then top with roasted butternut, sliced radish, a teaspoon or more of beet sauerkraut, a drizzle of raw cashew aioli (see notes) and a sprinkle of fresh coriander.
  • Enjoy!


  • Smash the avocado on plate with a fork, then add all other ingredients and mix to combine.
  • Sprinkle a few slices of spring onions over the top to finish.
