corn tacos_1Corn is in season now so take advantage of it while the flavors and juiciness are at their prime. The recipe was inspired by my husband’s love for all foods that can be wrapped up to eat. This dish is vegetarian, and for a twist you can also add black beans or avocado.

  1. • 5 cobs of sweet corn
  2. • 1-2 tablespoon of sunflower oil or butter
  3. • 2 ½ tablespoons of homemade taco seasoning for a spicy touch (see recipe in another post )
  4. • 1 large shallot, sautéed
  5. • A handful of pitted kalamata olives, cut in half lengthwise
  6. • Chopped cilantro
  7. • Lime wedges
  8. • 2 cups of shredded cheese
  9. • 10 corn tortillas
  1. 1. Shave the corn off the cobs along the stem.
  2. 2. In a pan over medium heat oil or butter, then sauté shallots for a few minutes until lightly browned. Add the cut corn and taco seasoning for a few minutes more to release the flavors from the spices. The longer the spices get cooked, the spicier the corn filling will be.
  3. 3. Serve the tortillas stuffed with the corn filling, shredded cheese, lettuce, a few kalamata olives, cilantro and a wedge of lime to squeeze over your corn.
  4. 4. Serve with a cold Mexican beer.

I LOVE FOOD and better yet I LOVE TO COOK.

I can thank my Vietnamese roots. Vietnamese people use a great amount of time cooking and eating, traits which they have learned from their families. Everyone seems to know how to cook, and they are adept at picking fresh and quality foods from the market. Food is a priority in Vietnam – if you eat well, you live well.

I was born in Denmark, and in my mind I am a true Dane. Danish people cook a lot as well, but they prefer to spend less time in the kitchen and more time at the table. I consider myself Vietnamese from a culinary standpoint and Danish from a cultural standpoint (and I live in New York, which is a Mecca for foodies).

My mum is a great cook, she taught me how to chop vegetables and how to just randomly throw things together and somehow get an awesome meal. She makes cooking seem like art, and she is my inspiration for DiepLicious cooking.

My husband loves food as well and he has a great appetite. Cooking for him is a real joy. He has a great interest in everything that concerns health, and loves to point out specific foods and why they are good for you to eat. I will share his knowledge with you. He makes my cooking more challenging, but also a lot healthier.

I offer you one Golden Rule: to enjoy food fully, always taste the food even if you don’t like it. For me it takes a couple of tries to get to know the real flavor.
