These veggie tacos are made with cumin-spiced sautéed mushrooms, red peppers, and onions then topped with homemade avocado chimichurri and crumbled feta cheese.
Today, I’m bringing you one of my newest obsessions – not tacos, well, yeah tacos BUT my latest obsession is… cumin-spiced sautéed mushrooms. I know super revolutionary, right? Yeah. I love love LOVE sautéing mushrooms with cumin. The taste is just so nutty and unique. Hard to describe really because you have the mushrooms that are already earthy in flavor to begin with so adding cumin just elevates all of that!
Feel free to use regular white mushrooms or portabello mushrooms. I personally love sliced baby bellas. I love their color and their flavor. And then inside of a taco? YUM. Of course, the sautéed red peppers and onions help too so basically it’s the best thing ever. The combo of all those flavors just scream weeknight dinner. But also, lunch leftovers. You can totally make the mushroom-red pepper-onion mixture and pack up the tortillas separately for easy assembly the next day.
That’s a win in my book!
These mushroom tacos are especially great for crowds. So, if you’re having people over, consider making a big batch of all the veggies with the avocado chimichurri.
WAIT can we just talk about how good that avocado chimichurri looks?! I mean, you had me at avocado, am I right? That’s an ultimate plus. Whether you use parsley or cilantro, chimichurri is delicious yes but then you go on and add avocado too?! Is it Christmas?? A meal could be the most boring meal on earth but the minute you slice an avocado and add it to the dish, it suddenly becomes the best dish you’ve ever had.
I’ve been super into meatless recipes lately. From vegetarian paella to vegetarian thai coconut soup and spicy lime tuna cakes, I’m just loving all ‘dem flavors! I’m also loving simple, easy-to-make meals and this one is no exception. Who can go wrong with tacos! Add this recipe to your rotation for the week. You won’t be disappointed.
I hope you make it and LOVE it!

Add avocado and give it a few more pulses until desired consistency. I prefer a thick, chunky texture but you can pulse it until it is more blended. Up to you! Set aside.

- In the same skillet, add sliced red peppers and sliced onion. Season with salt and pepper. Sauté on medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes until tender. Remove from heat.
