Hibiscus Flower Barbacoa Tacos

Tacos de Barbacoa 
hechos con flor de jamaica🌺 🌮

IRREALES, 
me encanta preparar barbacoa vegan, ya les he compartido receta de barbacoa con yaca, barbacoa de col morada (sabe deli tmb) 
y ahora, con flor de jamaica ♥️

El sazón y la técnica para darle saborsito es la misma pero la forma de cocer y preparar la flor para que no quede acidita y quede muuuy suave, viene con una historia.

El @chefmauricioalvarez cocina deliciosoooo, yo lo admiro mucho! Una vez estábamos en un evento de plant based lab y mau estaba preparando una taquiza para todos, yo entré a la cocina y me tocó probar unas quesadillas vip que estaban haciendo el y su esposa en la parrilla, deliciosas en tortilla de harina. 
Cuando me dieron a probar, juro que casi lloro de lo rico que supo. Fuegos artificiales, de los mejores tacos que he probado ever.

Entonces hace unos meses le pedí la técnica para que quedara así la flor. 
Les comparto mi interpretación aunque NUNCA nos quede como a él.
 Gracias chefffff crack por compartir tanto!

Ingredientes:
–  3 a 4 tazas de Flor de Jamaica
– 2 tazas de caldo de verduras concentrando
– 1 ajo picado finamente
– 1/4 cebolla blanca

Para toppings (puedes agregar lo que tengas en tu refri o lo que se te antoje):

Procedimiento:
1. Hervir la flor, enjuagar, volver a hervir, volver a enjuagar y luego exprimiiiiiirrrrrr the shit out of the jamaica para luego cortarla como taquero en cachitos.
3. Agregar el ajo, cebolla, tomillo, laurel, orégano, el caldo de verduras concentrado y bastante sal.
4. Se deja hervir de nuevo la flor de jamaica en todo ese sabor hasta que el caldo se reduzca por completo.
5. Servir con aguacate, chile serrano, limón, cebolla, cilantro, y salsa… y si se puede, acompañados de cerveza helada.

HIBISCUS FLOWER BARBECUE TACOS

Barbecue tacos made with Hibiscus flower 🌺 🌮

They’re UNREAL, I love to make vegan barbecue. I’ve shared with you before the recipe for barbecue made with jackfruit, as well as a recipe for red cabbage barbecue (which is also delicious). This time, I’ll show you how to make barbecue with hibiscus flowers ♥️

The seasoning and technique to make this barbecue is the same, but the cooking process is different so that the flowers become soft and they don’t taste sour-ish like hibiscus usually does. But first, let me share with you a story:

@chefmauricioalvarez cooks deliciously, and I admire him so much! One time we were at a plant-based lab event and Mauricio was preparing tacos for everyone. I went into the kitchen and I got to try some VIP quesadillas that he and his wife were making on the grill. Absolutely delicious and made on a flour tortilla. When they gave me one to try it, I swear I almost cry because of how good they tasted. Fireworks. Definitively one of the best tacos I’ve ever tried.

So, a few months ago I asked him for the technique he used to make the hibiscus flowers taste like that. I’ll share with you my interpretation of it, but to be honest, I’ve NEVER been able to make them as good as his. Thank you, chef crack, for sharing!!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 to 4 cups of hibiscus flowers
  • 2 cups of vegetable stock
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • ¼ white onion
  • Thyme
  • Bay leaf
  • Oregano
  • Salt
  • White corn tortillas

For toppings (you can add anything you have on your fridge or anything you like)

  • Avocado
  • Red onion
  • Serrano chili
  • Chopped cilantro
  • Homemade salsa

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Boil the flower, rinse, boil again, and rinse once more. Then squeeze the shit out of it so you can chop it up in pieces like a professional taquero.
  2. Add the garlic, onion, thyme, bay leaf, oregano and the vegetable stock and add enough salt.
  3. Boil once more the hibiscus flower with all the other seasonings until the stock has completely reduced.
  4. Serve with avocado, serrano chili, lime juice, onion, cilantro and salsa. If you can, an ice-cold beer goes great with it!

Long live all the delicious and cruelty-free recipes!!
