The Best Vegan Mushroom Tacos

What makes these tacos so unique? The type of mushroom! King oyster mushrooms have long, thick stems that shred perfectly into a meaty-like texture. Don’t expect them to taste just like meat, but do expect a great meaty texture and flavor! You can find these at Whole Foods, Lucky, Safeway, and most Asian markets.

Make these vegan mushroom tacos for anyone and I can almost assure you that they’ll enjoy them just as much as regular tacos. I love to use this as a meat substitute for many dishes that call for shredded meat, such as quesadillas, enchiladas, “pulled pork” sandwiches and more. Shredded king oyster mushroom can be a filling for so many other dishes! They are also rich in nutrients and antioxidants in case you needed another reason to try them 🙂

How to Shred King Oyster Mushrooms

  1. Take a fork and begin scratching the mushroom from the bottom to the top of the stem.
  2. Apply a bit of pressure but not too much, you want thin shreds.
  3. Repeat until all mushrooms have been shredded.

Tips for The Best King Oyster Mushroom Tacos

  • For extra crispy shredded mushroom, I recommend using an air fryer or oven. Air fry at 375 F for 8-12 minutes depending on the desired texture.
  • For the absolute best vegan mushroom tacos, marinate for a minimum of 30 minutes but preferably a few hours.
  • Add shredded mushrooms to burritos bowls, tacos, burritos, nachos or a plate of rice and beans!
  • You can substitute the mushrooms for jackfruit too! Canned green jackfruit it best.
