Instructions below to make the Vegan Portobello Taco Recipe:
Mix together in a shallow baking dish: the vegan beer, lime juice, ground cumin, and garlic powder. Then add in the portobello mushroom strips and toss to fully coat. Let them marinate for 30 minutes, carefully moving the strips around every 10 min.
While you are waiting for the portobello mushroom strips to marinate, make your salsa. To make the avocado salsa, mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl, cover, and chill in the refrigerator until ready to use on the vegan tacos.
Warm up a large frying pan over medium heat and then add 2 tsp. of cooking oil, making sure to coat the entire bottom of the pan evenly. Add half of the portobello mushroom strips and continue to cook for 10-15 min., turning over every few minutes until most of the liquid has been absorbed. Move the mushroom strips to a separate dish and cover. Continue with the remaining strips!
Next, heat the same or a different frying pan over medium heat to cook the tortillas for 30-60 seconds on each side, then remove and place on a plate and cover to keep warm.
To put the tacos together, place a few of the portobello mushroom strips in a gluten free tortilla and top with the avocado salsa.
