Vegan Pulled Mushroom Tacos FAQs
What is the best type of mushroom to use for these tacos?
Mushrooms of any kind may be used in these tacos; however, I suggest using king oyster mushrooms. King oyster mushrooms can be shredded effortlessly with two forks in the same way that chicken or pork may be shredded.
Can mushrooms be sliced instead of pulled apart?
Yes! Not all mushrooms can be shredded with ease. In this instance, you can either chop the mushrooms into tiny pieces or cut them lengthwise.
Will hard taco shells work for this recipe?
Of course! Hard taco shells are perfect for this pulled mushroom taco recipe. The hard shell's crispiness adds a delightful crunch! Keep in mind to always read the labels on the taco shell's packaging before purchasing if you're following a vegan diet.
Can this recipe be made ahead of time?
Yes, the mushroom "meat" filling may be prepared up to three days in advance. Warm the filling either on the stovetop or in the microwave, heat your tortillas and add whatever toppings you like before eating.
How can I spice up this recipe?
To add a little more punch to your pulled mushroom tacos, try adding a little chili powder, cayenne pepper, or green chilies to the mushroom mixture while they're cooking. Before serving, add a hot salsa or diced jalapenos on top of the pulled mushroom mixture for an extra kick of heat.
