If you could eat only one type of food for the rest of your life, what would it be? Although some of me think I can eat pizza every day, I am not sure if that would fit my health goals. But you know what it would be, what also happens to be (in my opinion) the most perfect food in the world? Tacos. Sure, you can make an unhealthy taco if you fill it with beef and sour cream. But when I think of the taco, I see grilled or roasted vegetables, fresh herbs, peeled pears, a glass of lime — especially fresh seasonal produce wrapped in a warm blanket of burning corn. It is a good bite that is always healthy and sweet, and the mushrooms and black beans I made for RE: SET are different.
When I first started making this year’s RE: SET plan – a 5-day food plan (did you sign up to get it?) – I knew there would be a taco on the menu. And when I tried my full choice – Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, potatoes – I quickly got to the official IOTY (production year): mushroom. It’s no secret that there are fungal infections in our culture right now, and if you’ve seen the Netflix doc, Fantastic fungus, you know why. I kept this simple to make them a mid-week dinner freedom fighter, but everything is full of flavor, not tiring.
Read a few tips on chopping mushroom tacos and black beans, and dry to the bottom to cook.
What makes mushrooms a source of energy?
Looks like mushrooms are all that everyone is talking about in foodie groups right now. While these are not the only hallucinogenic species, they are just like “magical mushrooms” in themselves: the variety has been known to boost the immune system, fight cancer, carry high levels of vitamins and minerals, and have high levels of antioxidants. .
According to Whole Foods forecasts, active mushrooms should be on your radar, with varieties such as rice, chaga, cordyceps, and lion managers that find road history and health ingredients in snacks and coffee, tea, snacks, and broth.
“People are combining active ingredients such as vitamin C, fungi and adaptogens to maintain a calm head and support the immune system.
Personally I am looking for ways to incorporate all kinds of mushrooms into my diet, and when I used shiitake in these tacos, they are all very good for you.
How to make it work for more people
Mushrooms and black beans are easy to make into a large batch, just add all your ingredients and put the ingredients for people to build their tacos to taste. However, when I do this for more than four people, I make my way in two small but important ways:
- Mix the mushrooms in two batches. When cooking mushrooms, it is important not to fill the pan. You want every mushroom to be exposed to the pan and get a crispy sizzle, not a combination of “heat.” As a result, I set aside more time for this step: after roasting the first batch, I transfer it to a plate while the second batch cooks, and then add everything to the pan to keep it warm until serving time.
- Heat the tortillas in the oven. Of course, they are not of course delicious if you burn them on the stove, but who has the time to burn more than 12 tortillas in one hand at a time? Here’s how to heat tortillas for most people: Bake five tortillas each in a foil pack, then heat in a 350F oven for 15 minutes or until warm. Keep each pile wrapped in foil until ready to eat.
How to change taco mushrooms and black beans
Gluten-free and non-dairy tacos are already healthy and friendly, but there are a number of variables you can rely on:
- Avoid corn? Use cassava flour from a brand like Sieté.
- No time to cook beans? Turn on the stove and fry the beans in the microwave for a few minutes. I love Amy’s Organic Refried Beans beans that are already cooked and very tasty.
- Forgot to pick onions? No problem, this is great with a shower of fresh green onions, too.
How to save leftovers
Mushrooms and black beans make leftover lunch, just keep the bean and vegetable ingredients separate in airtight containers in the fridge, and toss them together when needed to heat your tortillas the next day. Instead, I like to pile up the remaining mushrooms on a sourdough cross paste with ricotta. Instead, we’ll share this soon – it’s great.
