Cabbage and Portobello Tacos

Cabbage and Portobello Tacos -- Epicurean VeganSorry for the absence! I’m back and ready to cook! These veggie tacos were certainly well-received last night by the family. Maybe it’s because I haven’t had much time to cook for them lately, but whatever the reason, they made this vegan trio happy.

Heat the garlic and olive oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add the onions, zucchini, and cabbage; cook 10-12 minutes, or until they begin to soften and brown. Combine the seasoning ingredients and add to the pan along with the portobellos.

Thoroughly combine everything. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook the mushrooms until they soften and reduce in size, 7-9 minutes. You may want to cover the pan and let them cook.

    I never used to care much for portobello mushrooms (or mushrooms in general), but I had some really great ones last week and am ready to be more open minded about them! Think I’ll have to give these tacos a shot!

      I LOVE mushrooms (as you may notice I have lots of recipes with them)–they make great meat substitutes not only because of the texture, but they contain high doses of iron.
