Soft tacos are staples in my family, but there is only so much ground beef one can stomach. Then I cooked up mushroom tacos a la Chef Roberto Santibañez of New Jersey's The Taco Truck. The vegetarian filling is not only healthier, it spices up what has become a ho-hum, every-other-week offering.

Mushroom tacos
Serves 4
1/2 white onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

1 pound mixed mushrooms (white buttons, Portabello, shitake)
