Vegetarian Mushroom Tacos

Vegetarian Mushroom Tacos

These “meaty” tacos come together in 10 minutes and are a great alternative to the original. They have a delicious fresh flavor, are naturally gluten free and can be made vegan if you omit the cheese. They are filling without being heavy and because they are so simple to put together, they are perfect for lunch or dinner. This recipe uses button mushrooms, but for a deeper flavor try using portabella or crimini mushrooms.

  • Ingredients:
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red onion or shallot, diced
  • 2 cups mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 teaspoon seasoning salt

  • 1 cup tomato, diced
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1/2 cup goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 4 corn tortillas


Place the olive oil into a pan and place over a medium heat. Add the onion and mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes until the onion is soft and the mushrooms and soft with crispy edges.
