  • 2 lbs mushrooms baby portobellos/brown/white button - I use a mixture
  • 2 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 2 tablespoon tamari
  • 1 clove large garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 tablespoon diced red onion plus extra for serving
  • 6 small corn tortillas
  • 2 avocado roughly mashed
  • 1 lime
  • 3 tbsps freshly chopped cilantro for serving cilantro
  • Crumbled goats cheese for serving optional


  • Slice the mushrooms as thinly as possible using a mandolin or the thinnest setting on the slicing side of a grater (see note)
  • Heat a large skillet over high heat and add the avocado oil. Add all the mushrooms to the skillet and allow to cook, almost undisturbed, for about 15 minutes
  • Add in the tamari, garlic, paprika, and red onion and cook for another 5 minutes until all the liquid has gone and the mushrooms have become dark brown and almost crispy. Remove from the heat
  • Warm the corn tortillas and top with the mashed avocado
  • Top with the mushrooms, chopped coriander, a squeeze of lime and a sprinkle of raw red onion. Crumble some goats cheese on top and you are good to go (if you are vegan, no goats cheese)


A punnet is equal to about ½lb or 250grams
Make sure you get the mushrooms as thin as possible or they won't caramelise properly and you won't get the desired result. I don't have a mandolin, so I used the thinnest slice available on my grater. You don't want to slice them by hand because it will take a long, long time and it will be nearly impossible to get them thin enough.
