Happy National Taco Day! Yes, there is such a thing, and I have totally taken advantage of it. Not to mention, I had an insanely gorgeous bunch of purple kale that I wanted to use. Great timing, if I do say so myself. Before I say anything about this delicious dish, I wanted to let everyone know that I’m working on an eBook of my own, this month. I’m not even going to hint at it, I’m just going to flat-out tell you that it’s ALL about pumpkin recipes. Woohoo!
Ok, now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s talk tacos. This recipe is incredibly easy to make, especially if you don’t make your own tortillas. Funny thing about why I ended up doing that, is because I didn’t want to go to the store and buy some mini tortillas. Weird how being lazy makes you do more work, right?
Overall, the tortillas were so worth it, and they were inspired by this recipe for whole wheat tortillas from Health Seeker’s Kitchen. Like I said before, though, if you don’t make your own taco-filling holders your efforts will be cut in half and I really like the sound of that. Top these bad boys with your favorite salsa, or too much Sriracha which is what I like to do, and serve!
She prepared them by marinating them in soy sauce much like I did, but pan fried them instead and said that they turned out delicious and NOT SOGGY! Then topped it with fajita mushroom filling and homemade guacamole.
I love having this feature on my blog because it shows people that you can always use a different method for a recipe on here and get nearly the same, tasty result.
Have you ever made any of the recipes from my blog?
I was inspired by Daiya’s Summer Cookout Recipe Contest to try an even healthier way to make tacos, and also incorporate their delicious cheese shreds into the recipe. This dish has a few different components, but when they come together the difference in textures creates quite the party in your mouth. Fresh pico de gallo gives a nice crunch to the moist mushroom filling, and the cheddar sauce offers a hot and creamy topper.
