Portabella Tacos

Ingredients:

  • 4 medium portabella mushrooms, stems removed and cut into 1/2-inch thick slices
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano flakes
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil or canola oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 medium zucchini, cut into matchsticks (about 2 inches long and 1/2 inch thick)
  • 1 medium red onion, halved and sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 8 corn or flour tortillas
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded, reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup salsa of your choice

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Add mushrooms, oregano, oil, salt and pepper (if desired), zucchini sticks, and onion slices to large bowl. Toss to blend well.
  2. Spoon mixture evenly into a jellyroll pan (line it with nonstick foil if you have it). Place pan in oven and let vegetables roast, tossing occasionally, for about 30 minutes.
  3. Soften tortillas by wrapping them in a damp cloth and heating in the microwave for about a minute. Or, you can warm them in a nonstick frying pan (use a little canola cooking spray if you like).
  4. Fill each tortilla with mushroom mixture, some shredded cheese, and salsa.
