Spicy Zucchini and Tomato Tacos [Vegan]

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :
Fall is a bittersweet time for me. The leaves are changing, the days are growing shorter, and my bones can already feel the chill coming on, but, none of that matters when I'm curled up in a snuggie eating my weight in squash, soup, and roasted root veggies.

These tacos are a great way to use up the last of your summer zucchini and tomatoes while saying goodbye to the summer season. I love the mix of this spicy zucchini with the cooling tomatoes and avocado. If you want a heartier meal, these are perfect with some marinated tempeh. And if you don't have tortillas for wrapping, sauteed spicy zucchini and fresh tomato also make the perfect stand-alone salad.
