Considering it’s meatless Monday, I am excited to share one of my favorite meatless recipes with you all. I encountered this recipe a few years back from a favorite food blogger of mine, Newtrition Savvy Sarah. I was getting bored of my creativity in the kitchen but didn’t want to go over the top with Food Network status recipes and I happened up a lovely Instagram of Portobello Tacos. [Mind Blown]
First off, we love mushrooms.. Second, we extremely love anything tacos. Third, this just looked WAY to easy and ta-da, it was so seamless and simple! And delicious and a meatless taco = Triple Win!
Since I have been making this recipe for a few years now, it’s been tweaked over and over, so feel free to visit Sarah’s blog for the original Source: Portobello Tacos | newtritionsavvysarah
- 2 portobello mushrooms (you can also get Pre Sliced)
- 1 jalapeno
- taco seasoning (you can make from scratch or buy premixed)
- 6 corn tortillas
- romaine lettuce
- tomato – diced
- lime – to squeeze upon serving
- green onion
- sour cream
Before you begin, heat a skillet for the taco ‘meat’ and another to warm the tortillas on the stove. Slice portobellos and finely dice jalapeño.
Once skillet is warm over medium heat, coat the pan with olive oil. Lay in the portobellos and top with diced jalapeño and taco seasoning. Add more olive oil to coat (mushrooms have a tendency to stick to the pan otherwise).
Cover pan and cook for 3 minutes. Start tortillas on the other skillet to heat them up and bring to a light golden brown. Watch them carefully as tortillas are easily burned – this is only to heat them through and give a nice color.
Remove lid and flip the mushroom onto it’s back to sear the other side. Sprinkle more taco seasoning on the the under side of portobello (optional). Cover again the the lid and cook for another 4 minutes.
After 4 minutes, turn the heat off and leave on stove top as you prepare your taco toppings. You can put whatever taco toppings on you’d like or you can follow the same order that we prepare them. As you can see I like to spread sour cream on the bottom since it can be harder to dollop on top 😉
Enjoy – Cheers to another 15 minute dinner that is a palette stunner!
