  • 1 large Lion's Mane mushroom about a pound. If cannot find Lion's mane, substitute queen- or king-sized oyster mushrooms.
  • ½ yellow onion diced
  • 2 tbsp Taco Seasoning Mix

Optional Toppings

  • tortillas
  • shredded cabbage
  • oil-free refried beans or smashed beans
  • cilantro chopped
  • hot sauce or salsa


  • Shred the mushroom into pieces (the shreds shrink when cooked, so keep a little larger than the size you want). Set aside.
  • Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add onions and sauté over medium heat, adding a splash vegetable broth or water if things start to stick. Cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Add shredded mushrooms. Do NOT add any liquid to the pan as mushrooms will release liquid as they cook. Sauté about 4 minutes until mushrooms are cooked and edges are browned.
  • Add 2 tbsp. taco seasoning and cook another minute to allow spices to bloom. Season to taste with salt, soy sauce, or salt substitute as desired. Serve on tortillas with desired toppings.


Nutrition Facts calculated with only mushrooms, spice mix, and onion.
Mushroom substitutions:
  • Tofu. Recommend using firm tofu that's been frozen and thawed as it makes a chewy, meaty texture that's a great chicken substitute in soup. Simply squeeze all of the liquid out of the thawed tofu and crumble into desired-sized pieces and use in place of the Lion's Mane mushrooms.
  • Cauliflower florets
  • Chickpeas
  • Soy Curls. Rehydrate them per package directions and use in place of the mushrooms.
