My Mushroom Tacos with Jalapeno-Coriander Salsa is a vegetarian’s answer to an epic Taco Tuesday! Mushrooms are the perfect substitute for meat given their rich flavor and good substance that makes for a great flavor carrier for our Mexican Taco Spice Mix.
I like to pair these sizzling, Mexican-spiced mushrooms with a Mexican salsa verde – it’s fresh, zingy, herby, and a little bit spicy! Cooled down with some creamy smashed avo, and served atop some warm soft tortillas, these vegan tacos won’t have you missing meat one bit!

Mexican Taco Spice Mix – Mild, Salt-free
Our Mexican Taco spice mix is all you need to bring the authentic flavours of Mexico to your tacos. This mix has a big hit of flavour yet is very mild in heat so is perfect for the whole family. Although it has been specially blended with tacos in mind, this delicious blend can be added to just about any dish for a Mexican twist. Our flavourful blend is also a salt-free one so is a much healthier alternative to many of the other bottled sauces and blends on the market.$3.45
In a bowl, add your taco seasoning and olive oil and mix to make a loose paste. Add in your mushroom slices and toss to coat in the paste.
Place a pan on high heat with another small drizzle of olive oil and when hot, add in your mushroom slice and give a quick toss in the oil. Leave your mushrooms to sizzle without touching them – their liquid will start to leech out, but don’t toss them until all that liquid has evaporated and the browning begins. After this, toss once, and leave to cook the other sides – about 10 minutes all up.
Remove and set aside.
While the mushrooms are cooking, add your coriander, lime juice, lime zest, 1tbspn olive oil, jalapeno, and a pinch of salt into a blender and blend until a smooth green sauce is formed.
In a separate bowl, mash your avocado with a good pinch of salt, set it aside for serving.
Return your pan to the heat and warm your tortillas one at a time on each side and set them on the table for serving.
To serve, set all your elements out on the table for an easy self-serve dinner. Enjoy!
