Preheat oven to 220°C (200°C fan-forced). Line two large oven trays with baking paper.
Place ingredients in a high-speed blender; blend until very smooth. Season to taste. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Cut unpeeled pumpkin into 12 x 2cm thick wedges. Arrange pumpkin on trays in a single layer. Combine garlic, cumin, ground coriander, chilli powder and 2 tablespoons of the oil in a small bowl; brush mixture over pumpkin. Season with salt flakes. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden and tender.
Meanwhile, heat a grill plate (or pan or barbecue) over high heat. Drizzle corn with remaining oil. Cook corn, turning occasionally, for 10 minutes or until charred and tender. When cool enough to handle, cut kernels from corn cobs.
Carefully wipe grill pan clean with paper towel. Increase heat to high. Cook tortillas, in batches, for 30 seconds each side or until grill marks appear. Transfer to a plate; cover to keep warm.
Combine avocado and lime juice in a small bowl; season to taste.
To assemble, top each tortilla with a pumpkin wedge, avocado, corn kernels, green onion, jalapeño salsa verde, fetta and coriander sprigs. Serve with lime wedges.
