Sweet Potato Mushroom Veggie Tacos + Mango Chili Salsa
Unfortunately, veggie tacos usually end up getting a bad reputation, filled most often with overcooked veggies and some sort of meat replacement. Not these tacos – they’re absolutely delicious and you don’t even need to worry if you’re missing meats (just in case that was a concern)…The sweet potatoes are completely balanced out by the fragrant mexican spices and the mushrooms add the slightest bite. I love how quick and easy these are to make and best of all, how bright and healthy they are for you! Enjoy! xo, Anjanee
Sweet Potato Mushroom Tacos + Mango Chili Salsa
Delicious, healthy, veggie tacos that are filled with flavour
1/2 green chili, finely minced (jalepeno, serrano or thai chili work well)
1/2 Tbsp cumin
1/8 tsp salt
24 oz sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp cumin powder
1/8 tsp cinnamon powder
1/8 tsp chipotle powder
3 Tbsp olive oil
10 oz cremini mushrooms, sliced
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
salt and pepper
6 store-bought or homemade corn tortillas
fresh chopped coriander to garnish
Combine the mango, tomatoes, red onion, green chili, cumin and salt in a medium bowl. Mix thoroughly and set aside to marinate while you make the filling.
Preheat the oven to 400°F/200°C. In a baking tray covered with tin foil, toss together the sweet potatoes, cayenne, cumin, cinnamon, chipotle and 2 tbsp of olive oil. Season lightly with freshly ground salt and pepper. Place in the middle of oven and bake for about 30-40 minutes until the potatoes are soft and lightly browned.
Meanwhile, in a large saute pan, heat the remaining 1tbsp of olive oil on medium high heat. Once hot, add the mushrooms and cook for a couple minutes until they begin to sweat. Add in the garlic and cook for a further 5-6 minutes until golden brown. Season with freshly ground salt and pepper.
To assemble, spread a tablespoon or so of the smashed avocado onto the tortilla. Layer with the sweet potato mixture, mushrooms, salsa and coriander.
