Description

These incredible veggie tacos combine deep umami tastes of portabella mushrooms, Middle Eastern spices and a luscious tahini guacamole. Perfect for your Big Game celebration!


Ingredients

  • For the shawarma spice mix:
  • 2 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp ginger powder
  • For the tahini guacamole:
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 2 tbsp Mighty Sesame Co. Tahini
  • 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • For the tacos:
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 16oz portabella mushrooms, sliced thick (about 3/4 inch slices )
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp salt (to taste)
  • 3 cucumbers, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 pint grape tomatoes, cut into quarters
  • 6 corn or flour tortillas (taco size)
  • Fresh cilantro for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. Combine all the ingredients of the spice mix in a small bowl and set aside
  2. To prepare the tahini guacamole, cut the avocados in half, remove the pit and scoop the flesh out using a spoon. Place it in a medium size bowl and mash it with a fork. Add the tahini, lemon juice and salt and mix well. Refrigerate until ready to use
  3. Heat the olive oil over medium-high in a large nonstick skillet. Add the mushrooms and spice mix and toss well. Cook for about 5 minutes, tossing frequently (the mushrooms will shrink considerably). Add the salt and set aside until ready to use
  4. To assemble the tacos, spread a heaping tablespoon of tahini guacamole on the tortilla. Arrange the mushrooms, cucumbers and tomatoes on top and garnish with cilantro (if using)
