Recipe Creation: Exotic Mushroom Tacos

I usually find vegetarian tacos boring.  These tacos, on the other hand, are anything but that. They are juicy, hearty, and unbelievably flavorful.  I based the recipe on this Heidi Swanson recipe, and adapted it to my own tastes.  I also used tortillas that are a blend of corn and wheat.  I find that they don't break apart as easily and aren't as dry as corn tortillas, yet still have a great texture and corn flavor.  You can double or triple the recipe and easily feed a crowd.  Next, all you have to do is whip up some of these delicious margaritas, and you have yourself a party!

Serves 2

  • 1 1/2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1/2 white onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 japaleño, seeded and chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 6-8 oz. sliced exotic (or wild) mushrooms
  • 4 corn & wheat blend tortillas
  • sea salt
  • freshly grated parmesan


-In a medium skillet, heat the olive oil and butter over medium heat.
-Add the onion, jalapeño, garlic and a pinch of salt.
-Sauté for a few minutes, or until the onion starts to turn light golden in color.
-Add the mushrooms and cook for another 5-6 minutes, or until browned.
-Turn on a separate burner and place the tortillas directly on the burner to warm.
-Once the tortillas begin to blister, remove from heat.
-Place the tortillas on plates and distribute the mushrooms evenly on each tortilla.
-Sprinkle each taco with grated parmesan cheese and enjoy immediately.
