Fueled Friday: Vegetarian Mushroom Tacos
Did you know, Americans ate over 4.5 billion tacos last year? Neither did we! We bet very few of them were these amazing vegetarian mushroom tacos, but this recipe might just change things in 2019. They are quick, easy and delicious, and will disappear in seconds from your plate. Although not traditional, the flavors in these meatless tacos are amazing.
Ingredients for tacos:
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1 tsp garlic, minced
- 1/4 onion, sliced
- 1 cup sliced mushrooms
- 2 tbsp roasted chickpeas
- 1/4 tsp paprika
- 1/4 tsp cumin
- 1/4 tsp chipotle powder
- 1/4 cup roasted butternut squash
- 4 organic corn tortillas
Ingredients for the avocado sauce:
- 1/4 cup plain yogurt
- 1/2 ripe avocado
- 1 garlic clove
- 1/4 cup mint
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- Salt to taste
1. Heat oil in a small pan and add garlic. Sauté for a minute or two and add mushrooms. Sauté on medium to high heat for 3 minutes till the mushrooms are tender. Add paprika, cumin, chipotle powder, and salt. Cook for another 2-3 minutes.
2. For the avocado sauce, blend everything in a blender till smooth. Add 1-2 tbsp of water if desired.
3. Heat the tacos on both sides in a pan or you can toss them on a open flame for a little extra crisp. Add avocado sauce, mushroom mix, roasted butternut squash, top with chickpeas, and sliced onions. Add some lemon or orange zest for a citrus twist and enjoy!
