Shiitake mushroom tacos with raw spinach and cashew sour ‘cream’

Continuing with the theme of incorporating more plant foods into your diet and embracing a newfound willingness to try foods you may have convinced yourself you don’t like, these shiitake mushroom tacos with a nut-based sauce are really quite good! Especially if you release all expectations of carne asada. I use Trader Joe’s 1/2 corn & 1/2 wheat tortillas b/c they are more pliable than corn (no blow-outs!) and more nutritious than plain white flour. You can also use romaine leaves to make lettuce wraps

Ingredients:

12-16oz shiitake mushrooms – thinly sliced

Optional: matchsticks of peeled zucchini and eggplant

First make spice paste in food processor:

1 jalapeño pepper

1 TBSP fresh grated ginger

1 tsp salt

1 TSP maple syrup

1 TBSP olive oil

1/2 lemon – juiced

2 tsp dried thyme

1.5 tsp allspice

1/4 tsp cayenne

3/4 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp cinnamon

Toppings; cashew sour ‘cream’, really good salsa, diced avocado, and diced papaya

Heat spice paste in oil over medium heat in caste iron pan. Add mushrooms and/or veggies and thoroughly mix with spice paste.  Mix thoroughly while sautéing until any liquid is gone. Place a handful of raw baby spinach on a warm tortilla (or use lettuce leaves), add mushroom filling, and dollop with cashew cream. Top with avocado, papaya, and salsa. YUM!
