Ingredients

Broccoli: 

1 large or 2 small heads of broccoli, about 3/4 pound, tops cut into 2-inch florets and stems peeled and cut into 1/4-inch rounds (should be about 4 cups)

2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil

2 teaspoons salt

Vinaigrette:

1 shallot, peeled and halved

3/4 cup white vinegar

3 tablespoons olive oil

Salt

Black Bean Hummus:

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

1 tablespoon tahini

2 cloves garlic

1 tablespoon lemon juice

2 tablespoons black sesame seeds, toasted in a dry saute pan on high heat for 30 seconds or until hot and fragrant

Salt

1 teaspoon sugar

8 flour tortillas

8 corn taco shells (the hard shell kind from your childhood)

Feta cheese, drained and crumbled

2 tablespoons fried shallots (the Vietnamese ones found at Asian markets are amazing, but any fried onions, store bought or home-made, will do)

2 tablespoons dry roasted peanuts, crushed

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F. 
  2. For the broccoli: Toss the broccoli, oil, and 1 teaspoon of salt together and taste a little piece. Adjust the seasoning if necessary. Put the broccoli in a roasting pan or casserole dish. 
  3. Place the pan of broccoli in the oven and cook until the broccoli is a little bit caramelized but still bright green and a little crunchy, 12 to 15 minutes. 
  4. For the vinaigrette: Put the shallot, white vinegar, olive oil, and 1 teaspoon salt in a blender and puree until smooth. Set aside. 
  5. For the black bean hummus: In a food processor, combine the drained beans, 1/2 cup water, tahini, garlic, lemon juice, sesame seeds, 3/4 teaspoon salt, and sugar, and process until smooth. Set aside. 
  6. In a saute pan, put the broccoli and heat on medium. Add the vinaigrette from the blender a little at a time, tasting as you go, until you have a tart, warm, broccoli salad. It should be about 3 tablespoons of vinaigrette. 
  7. Heat the tortillas: wrapped in a damp towel in the oven, in the plastic bag they came in in the microwave, or individually on an open burner. 
  8. Assembly: Spread a tablespoon or so of black bean hummus on each tortilla. Fold each smeared tortilla around a corn taco shell so that the hummus is gluing the two tortillas together. Put a tablespoon of crumbled feta cheese into the bottom of each corn taco shell. Divide the broccoli salad evenly among the 8 tacos and put it in. Top each taco with some fried shallots and crumbled peanuts.
