Vegetarian taco mushroom “meat”

This is a nice alternative for a vegetarian meal. Something different for the Lenten season as well.

  • 1 bag of riced cauliflower
  • ½- ¾ cup of finely chopped white mushrooms
  • 1 small diced onion
  • 3 tablespoons of taco sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of chili or taco seasoning
  • 1 small diced tomato
  • 2 ounces of cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast or ¼ cup of cheddar cheese
  • Chopped peppers or jalapenos or crushed red pepper- optional

Directions

  1. Microwave cauliflower for about 3 minutes and squeeze excess water out ( i use a nut bag).
  2. Spray a skillet and cook the mushrooms, onion,  cauliflower rice and peppers if using on medium heat until browned. 
  3. Add the cream cheese, tomato, taco sauce, seasoning to the mixture. You can add ore taco sauce or a little water if it’s too dry. Let it simmer to thicken up.
  4. Make a lettuce wrap or a carrot wrap. Top with sour cream.
  5. Notes~ I made a chili from my leftovers. I added some tomato sauce and paste. You can also make nachos, spread some tortilla chips on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.  Top with mixture and cheddar cheese and bake for 15 minutes on 350 degrees.
