As most people know by now, portobello mushrooms make great burgers as a vegetarian option but why stop there? We can also lower our consumption of meat by using them in things like tacos as well.  These can also be vegan if you omit the cotija or use a vegan cheese.

The mushrooms cook quickly, need no marination,  and make short work of a weeknight dinner, on the plate in 20 minutes or so, start to finish. So consider these tasty tacos next time you are short on time and could use a little extra time for relaxing with family and friends or just finding time to catch up on work!

The recipe does say that it serves, 1-2 but by that I mean it makes 2 tacos, and that could feed one person or give two people one taco each, so watch that if you are cooking for more people.

As always, enjoy!
