Ingredients

Pulled Mushroom Filling

  • 4 king oyster mushrooms*
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil 30 mL
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp each salt, cayenne pepper, cumin
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 Tbsp adobo sauce from a jar of chipotle peppers 15 g

Corn Salad

  • 2 ears fresh corn
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro or parsley 20 g
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion 40 g
  • 1 medium jalapeno finely chopped
  • 1 lime juice + zest
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil 15 mL

To Serve

  • 3 to 4 radishes thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese 60 g
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • 6 to 8 tortillas

Instructions

  • Shred Mushrooms: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (204 C). Clean mushrooms with a damp paper towel. Using two forks, shred the stems and caps roughly into pieces. Set on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  • Bake: Drizzle mushrooms with oil, spices, and garlic. Toss around to evenly coat the mushrooms, then bake for 20 minutes, or until mushrooms are a bit crispy and brown on the edges. Stir in the adobo to evenly coat.
  • Corn Salad: Meanwhile, cut corn from the cob and toss to combine with all Corn Salad ingredients. Set aside to marinate.
  • Assemble: Spoon warm pulled mushroom, corn salad, radishes, feta, and avocado onto tortillas and serve.

Notes

*You can use regular oyster mushrooms if you can’t find king oysters, though you will need many more (about 3 heaping cups). Button or champignon mushrooms don't work well in this recipe.
