Portobello-and-Zucchini Tacos

Portobello-and-Zucchini Tacos

Prep: 15 mins Total Time: 15 mins Servings: 4


  • 5 portobello mushrooms, stemmed and sliced 1/2 inch thick

  • 2 tsp dried oregano

  • 2 Tbsp olive oil

  • ¼ cup water

  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 4 zucchini, cut into 2-by-1/2-inch sticks

  • 1 red onion, halved and sliced 1/4 inch thick

  • 8 corn tortillas (4 1/2-inch size)

  • 6 oz Monterey Jack, shredded (1 1/2 cups)

  • 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, halved or quartered


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss mushrooms with 1 teaspoon oregano, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and the water; season with salt and pepper. On another baking sheet, toss zucchini and onion with remaining oregano and olive oil; season with salt and pepper.

  2. Roast, tossing occasionally, until vegetables are browned and fork-tender, 25 to 30 minutes (zucchini may cook faster than mushrooms).

  3. Using tongs, hold each tortilla directly over a gas flame, turning, until heated through, about 5 seconds. (Alternatively, wrap tortillas in parchment, then foil, and warm in a 350 degrees oven.)

  4. To serve, fill each tortilla with mushrooms, vegetable mixture, shredded cheese, and tomatoes.

Cook's Note: New Take on Tacos: Substitute hearty roasted portobello mushrooms and zucchini for the ground beef. Then top with shredded cheese and chopped vegetables.
