Mushroom Soft Tacos Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1 large white onion sliced into half-moons
  • 4 cloves Garlic finely chopped
  • 500 Grams Swiss brown mushrooms stems trimmed and sliced thickly
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon Cayenne pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • 4 whole-wheat flour tortillas warmed
  • sprouts for garnish
  • hot sauce to serve (optional)
  • 200 Grams cream cheese
  • 1 clove Garlic minced finely
  • 5 stalks green onion chopped
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro (wansoy) chopped
  • 2 tablespoons parsley sprigs chopped


  • Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté onions, stirring occasionally, until soft and caramelized.
  • Add garlic and cook until soft and fragrant but not brown. Add mushrooms and sauté, stirring until mushrooms start to release their liquid.
  • Add cumin, paprika, oregano, cayenne pepper or chili flakes, salt, and pepper; stir to coat mushrooms evenly. Sauté until mushrooms re-absorb liquid.
  • Add remaining olive oil and stir just to get the mushrooms slicked and glossy. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Prepare the herby cream cheese: Combine all ingredients in a bowl; mix well.
  • Assemble the tacos: Spoon 2 tablespoons mushrooms mixture on a warmed tortilla, top with herby cream cheese, and sprinkle generously with sprouts. Drizzle with hot sauce, if desired, and fold over. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
