  • 5 cups mixed squash, beets and parsnips; peeled and diced
  • 1 red onion, cut into thick wedges
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • ½ tsp. chili powder
  • ½ tsp. ground cumin
  • ¼ tsp. salt, divided
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 2 cups red cabbage, shredded
  • 1 lime, juiced

  • 8 whole wheat tortillas, warmed


  1. Preheat oven to 400º F.
