Lately I’ve been all about everything tacos! One thing we can all agree on is that tacos are a win.No matter what the season or what dietary preferences you have, you can tailor a taco to meet anyone’s needs. While you can easily pick up a vegan product to fill your tacos with, it’s so easy just to make a homemade option.
You can use everything from cauliflower, tofu, brussels sprouts, and of course mushrooms!
I personally love mushrooms for countless reasons. They pack nutrients and more importantly there a blank canvas making the options endless in terms of flavor. If you’re not a huge fan of mushrooms, I promise this method makes a huge difference in the final result. By simply marinating and grilling you can derive so much flavor, you won’t be craving any faux meat period!
If you’re not familiar with chimichurri sauce, it’s hands-down my favorite sauce since living in Miami in 2006. Years ago you would never see this sauce with online recipes. Today this fabulous sauce has exploded and you see it everywhere. Bonus, this sauce is all plants and packs so much flavor. You’ll typically find this sauce with skirt steak, but I swear it’s so good on anything and everything.
What’s great about these tacos? Everything! They are quick, easy, affordable, pack tons of flavor, the mushrooms can be thrown on anything, the sauce is tangy with a hint of heat, it can be used in other dishes, the tacos are great for entertaining, the colors are vibrant, they are perfect for any season, you can mix up the toppings, and they are just so good!
