Ingredients

For the tacos :

4-6 gluten-free or regular taco wraps
2 C pre-cooked quinoa
1 C pineapple, sliced
Pickled cabbage or raw purple cabbage, shredded
½ C tinned kidney beans
½C mango, diced
Lime quarters

For the maca avocado cilantro crème:

1 ripe avocado
⅓ C coconut milk
1 ½ heaped Tbsp Maca Powder
2 Tbsp Coconut Blossom Nectar
2-3 Tbsp lime juice
Bunch of Cilantro
Salt & pepper to taste

For the marinated mushrooms:

1 ½ C button mushrooms, sliced
¼ C olive oil
Squeeze of lemon juice
Dried herbs (smoked paprika, garlic flakes and cumin)
Salt & pepper to taste

Method

Step 1:

Place the sliced mushrooms in a bowl with olive oil, splash of lemon juice, herbs of choice, salt and pepper to marinate overnight or at least for an hour.

Step 2:

Cook the quinoa according to the packet instructions and set aside.

Step 3:

Place the diced avocado, maca powder, coconut milk, handful of cilantro leaves, splash of lime juice and coconut blossom nectar in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth.

Step 4:

Pour into a squeezy bottle or a pouring jug and chill until serving time.

Step 5:

Grill the pineapple on a griddle pan, even some grilled avocado pieces would be great.

Step 6:

Layer the tacos by starting the quinoa as your first layer, then the kidney beans, diced mango, cabbage, grilled pineapple, fresh avocado slices, few cilantro leaves, marinated mushrooms and top it with the creamy maca avocado cilantro crème.

Notes:

The marinated mushrooms can be dehydrated for a kind of mushroom “biltong” if you’d like to try that effect for the tacos.
Other addons to these tacos could be a spicy chili sauce, vegan mayonnaise, fresh chilies, corn or toasted seeds.
Store the marinated mushrooms in a glass container in your fridge for future use.
Store the maca avocado cilantro crème in the fridge for future use as toppings for toast, salad dressings, etc.
