These tacos are just amazing. Full of flavour and a perfect blend of spiciness with a tropical hint.

- 1 punnet (150g) of oyster mushrooms
- 2 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
- 2 tbsp mango chutney (store-bought is fine)
- 1 tbsp of turmeric, smoked paprika and garlic powder
- 1 can of black beans, rinsed
- 1 small can of corn kernels, drained (frozen is fine too)
- 1 handful of kale
- 1 small onion, chopped
- handful of cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1/4 of a papaya or 1/2 a mango, chopped in bite-sized pieces
- salt & pepper
- For the chipotle sauce:
- 1/2 cup of cashews, soaked overnight or in boiled water for 1h (ommit if you really don't have the time)
- 1/4 cup of almond milk or water
- 1 tbsp of Adobo sauce (from a Chiptole pepper in Adobo sauce, I buy these at Woolies) - or use any hot sauce
- juice of 2 limes
- 1/2 avocado
- salt & pepper
- Step 1 Soak the cashews if you haven’t done this yet.
- Step 2 Cut all the vegies. Start by halving the oyster mushrooms and put them in a frying pan with some water or oil. Fry for a couple of minutes and then add the soy/tamari, mango chutney and spices. Turn to low heat and let it simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5-10 minutes.
- Step 3 In the meanwhile, chop all your vegies and prepare the sauce.
- Step 4 Add all the ingredients for the sauce in a blender and blend until very smooth. Add more water if you need to. It will take 2-3 minutes of full-speed blending to get the level of creaminess you want.
- Step 5 Drain the black beans and rinse well. Add to the oyster mushroom along with the corn kernels. Leave to simmer for 5 minutes until it’s heated.
- Step 6 In the meanwhile, heat your tacos in the oven or microwave.
- Step 7 Add a bit of kale, followed by the mushroom & beans, and top with tomato, onion, mango/papaya and drizzle with the Chipotle sauce.
- Step 8 PS: Naked Byron Foods has a Vegan Chipotle Mayonnaise which you can buy at Health Food Stores and even some IGAs. So that’s a great option if you don’t want to make your own. Or opt for some guacamole!
