TASTY "CHICKEN" TAQUITOS

TASTY "CHICKEN" TAQUITOS

Taquitos! Mexico’s answer to the spring roll, they’re the crispy snack that makes for perfect party fodder. We’ve baked these instead of deep frying them to keep it a little healthier. Plus, they stay fresher for longer. These crispy little rolls would definitely make for an excellent game of “serve them to a meat-eater and challenge them to tell the difference”. Perfect served with a few dips - check out our video on how to make guac and pico de gallo.

If you're in need of a fun Saturday night vegan dish, this is a DELISH and exciting one to try. Let us know what you think!

Ingredients

Taquitos

  • 400g king oyster mushrooms
  • 100g dairy-free cheese
  • 10 small corn tortillas

Marinade

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp hot chilli powder
  • ½ tsp salt

Equipment

  • 2 baking trays lined with parchment paper
  • Mixing bowl
  • Grater

Method

  1. 1.

    Preheat oven to 180℃

  2. 2.

    First, prepare the “chicken”. Cut the caps off the mushrooms and finely slice. Shred the stems of the mushrooms with two forks. The stems should resemble pulled chicken when you’ve finished.

  3. 3.

    Prepare the marinade and flavour your mushrooms. Put all the marinade ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir to combine. Add the mushrooms to the bowl and stir until well covered. Pour the mushrooms out on a baking tray, making sure the shreds are evenly spaced. Put the tray in the oven and roast for 15 minutes. Take the tray out of the oven and let the mushrooms cool down to room temperature.

  4. 4.

    Roll and bake the taquitos. Grate the dairy free cheese. Lay one tortilla out on the kitchen surface. Place a heaped tablespoon of the mushrooms at the base of the tortilla, sprinkle over some dairy free cheese and tightly roll it up into a tight, cigar-shaped tube. Put the taquito on the baking sheet. Repeat this process until all the mushrooms have been used. Brush the taquitos lightly with olive oil, put the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 20 minutes, turning halfway.

  5. 5.

    Time to serve! Take the taquitos out of the oven and serve immediately with the guacamole and pico de gallo.
