Taco party time!
Broccoli tacos that are insanely addictive. Good thing broccoli is healthy.
The BEST tacos EVER. Seriously. The Best.
I don’t think anyone can deny how amazing fried mushrooms are. Well, unless you hate mushrooms. However, I can say pretty confidently that mushrooms are my favorite food. If you throw mushrooms onto almost anything, I will eat it. A local bar makes the most amazing fried mushrooms, and I have not had them in a long time because I am rather certain that they are not vegan. The batter could be I suppose, but I am 100% sure that the sauce they come with is not. These perfect fried bites of ecstasy come with a creamy horseradish sauce. I think the horseradish is the perfect complement to the mushrooms.
I see people put horseradish on their steaks, but in my opinion, a nice mushroom can replace any steak. They are meaty, filling, and can take on any flavor you want pretty easily! So, the other day, while I was craving some fried mushroom bar food, I thought about how I could take that on and make it my own. Well, tacos popped into my head and wouldn’t go away, so here we are.
Tacos are probably my favorite delivery method of getting food into my mouth. Screw forks and spoons, a nice tortilla is where it’s at. The greatest thing is you can start with your base main flavor, either a protein or veggie, and build from there. A sauce, a nice crunchy element(I love pepitas on my tacos), and some fresh veggies on top. Perfection, and always easy. I don’t think I have ever made a taco that took more than 15 minutes. So they are the best week night go to!
I felt compelled to combine these two already amazing things and make them even better. The beer batter was an idea, simply because I wanted to make them more flavorful and something a little different and intriguing. Every component to this dish is super simple. The batter is only 4 ingredients, the sauce is only 5 ingredients, and the slaw is only 6 ingredients, and those numbers are all including salt and pepper. So, let’s talk about the slaw now, I thought this needed a fresh and crisp element to kind of cut through the heaviness of the mushrooms. So, I just made a quick veggie slaw with a light dressing of apple cider vinegar, olive oil and salt and pepper. It was really the perfect thing!
I promise, you will love this combination, and if you love mushrooms as much as I do, this will make your brain, heart and tummy so happy! Light and crispy battered mushrooms, creamy sauce with a kick and fresh veggies, all rolled into a adorable tasty package! Enjoy!
I love tacos! Any kind, any day. A few years ago, I lived in Tampa Florida, and there is a magical place called The Taco Bus. This particular Taco Bus is not actually a bus, it started as a small taco truck and now has like four or five permanent locations. Why? Because their tacos are the f$#%&ing best! They also have at least five vegan taco options! Win! Not only that, but they are open 24/7. At this magical time, in this magical place, I worked right around the corner from one of the locations. Lunch time? Tacos. Three in the morning? Tacos. It was the greatest. I have really been missing the wizardry at the Taco Bus lately, and we were supposed to head down there this weekend, and the Hurricane Hermine hit north Florida this past weekend. Not only did I not get my amazing various vegan tacos, but we didn’t have power for days. So sad. The second our power came back on, I set out to make the perfect vegan taco. I hate to toot my own horn, but I think I nailed it.
Now obviously I have not had a fish taco possibly ever, but I have always liked the idea. I loved fish when I was a kid, I think it creeped me out a lot less than eating meat, and I like the salty sea like flavor. When I became a vegetarian a million years ago, that was the only thing I really missed. It quickly became no big deal, but I still love the flavor of seaweed! I wanted something that paired really well with a light fishy flavor, and I thought avocados and mangoes were the way to go!
These tacos are everything I have been dreaming of. Taco Bus will always hold a special place in my heart, but until I can get down there, these are insanely satisfying. Crispy “fish”, sweet and spicy mango salsa, velvety avocado cream. All the things you need in life! I hope these tacos bring you as much happiness as they did for my family!
