Hearts of Palm Tacos


  • 1 medium clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme or oregano leaves
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 (15 ounce) can of hearts of palm, drained
  • 1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 6 corn tortillas
  • 1 cup salsa verde
  • Sliced white onion
  • Minced cilantro
  • Avocado

Combine lime juice, garlic, thyme, and olive oil in a small bowl and stir with a fork. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Carefully dry drained hearts of palm with paper towels, transfer them to a plate, and pour marinade on top of them. Rub with hands to coat every surface. Set aside.

Heat a cast iron pan with a little oil over high heat. Add hearts of palm and cook, turning occasionally, until tender and deep char marks have appeared on all sides, about 12 minutes total.Transfer to a plate and keep warm.

Dip a tortilla into a bowl of water. Add to the pan and griddle until charred on first side, about 1 minute. Carefully flip and cook until second side is charred, about 1 minute longer. Transfer to a clean dish towel and fold the towel over to keep warm. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

Slice the hearts of palm and serve with warm tortillas, salsa, onions, cilantro, and avocado.
