Easy Roasted Mushroom and Zucchini Taco Recipe

Fast & Easy Dinner: Portobello and Zucchini Tacos

When I go out for Mexican food, I love to order unhealthy dishes like queso dip, nachos, or a heaping plate of carnitas. However, when I make Mexican at home, I favor light and fresh dishes like these veggie tacos.

They're filled with roasted mushrooms and zucchini, resulting in a taco that's hearty, but not fatty. To make them really figure-friendly, serve with homemade salsa or pico de gallo. Enjoy these simple and scrumptious tacos tonight! Get the recipe.

Easy Roasted Mushroom and Zucchini Taco Recipe 2010-01-18 17:13:29

Ingredients

5 medium portobello mushrooms, stems and gills removed, sliced 1/2 inch thick
2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 tablespoons olive oil
Coarse salt and ground pepper
4 medium zucchini, cut into 2-by-1/2-inch sticks
1 medium red onion, halved and sliced 1/4-inch thick
12 (4 1/2-inch) corn tortillas
6 ounces (1 cup) Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
1/2 cup fresh salsa

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. On a large rimmed baking sheet, toss mushrooms with 1 teaspoon oregano, 1 tablespoon oil, and 1/4 cup water; season with salt and pepper.
  2. On another rimmed baking sheet, toss zucchini and onion with remaining teaspoon oregano and tablespoon oil; season with salt and pepper.
  3. Place both sheets in oven. Roast, tossing occasionally, until vegetables are browned and fork-tender, 25 to 30 minutes (zucchini may cook faster than mushrooms).
  4. Meanwhile, in a small skillet over medium-high heat, warm tortillas according to package instructions (they should be lightly browned but still soft). Wrap loosely in a clean kitchen towel to keep warm.
  5. To serve, fill each tortilla with mushrooms, vegetable mixture, shredded cheese, and salsa.

Serves 4.

I forgot to report that I made these. I didn't get a chance to take a picture because they seriously did not last that long. We ate them so fast! The mushrooms came out deliciously earthy, and the tacos were so wonderfully filling. I would definitely make this again.
