These incredible veggie tacos combine deep umami tastes of portabella mushrooms, Middle Eastern spices and luscious tahini guacamole.
Take Taco Tuesday up a notch with our delicious and wonderfully exotic shawarma veggie tacos! Using a simple blend of fresh ingredients and spices, we should show you how to put together a meal that will please Mexican, Middle Eastern, and clean-eating foodies alike.
The shawarma filling is made from meaty portabella mushrooms. We prepare our own shawarma spice blend combining paprika, allspice, cumin, turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, garlic and onion, but you can use a pre-made mix if you have it in hand. If making your own, you can change the ratio of the spices to fit your own taste! The spice mix gives the mushrooms an intense punch of flavor that makes these veggie tacos incredibly satisfying.
Add a touch of decadence to your tacos with Mighty Sesame Squeezable Tahini in a tube. This award-winning gourmet tahini uses the highest-quality organic, slow-roasted sesame seeds, providing a rich flavor and healthy smooth consistency. The squeeze tube application makes use so easy, and one taste will have you adding Mighty Sesame Tahini to everything from salads, mashed potatoes, sandwiches, and more. For our veggie tacos, we prepared a rich, decadent tahini guacamole to (generously) coat the bottom of our tortillas

- For the shawarma spice mix:
- 2 tsp sweet paprika
- ½ tsp allspice
- ½ tsp cumin
- ½ tsp turmeric
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- ¼ tsp garlic powder
- ¼ tsp onion powder
- ¼ tsp ginger powder
- For the tahini guacamole:
- 2 ripe avocados
- 2 tbsp Mighty Sesame Co. Tahini
- 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
- ¼ tsp salt
- For the tacos:
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 16oz portabella mushrooms, sliced thick (about ¾ inch slices )

- 3 cucumbers, peeled and diced
- ½ pint grape tomatoes, cut into quarters
- 6 corn or flour tortillas (taco size)
