Beer-Marinated Portobello Tacos with Avocado-Corn Salsa Recipe
🔪Prep Time: 25 minutes
👩🍳Cook Time: 35 minutes
1½ cups vegan pale or blonde ale (Ground Breaker Brewing IPA No. 5 and Brunehaut Bio Blonde are both vegan and gluten-free)
Juice of 1 lime
1 teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon garlic powder
4 portobello mushrooms, stemmed, gills scraped, cut into 1-inch slices
Sunflower oil, for cooking
6 to 8 corn tortillas (or small flour tortillas)
2 avocados, pitted, peeled, and diced
1 cup corn kernels (fresh or thawed frozen)
1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
½ cup chopped red onion
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon chopped jalapeño
Salt to taste, optional
1Combine the beer, lime juice, cumin, and garlic powder in a shallow baking dish.
2Add the portobello strips and toss to fully coat.
3Marinate for 30 minutes, moving the strips around every 10 minutes.
4While the portobello strips are marinating, make the salsa: Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, cover, and chill until ready to use.
5Heat a large frying pan, preferably cast iron, over medium heat.
6Add a couple of teaspoons of oil and tilt the pan around to evenly coat the bottom.
7Add about half of the portobello strips and cook for 10 to 15 minutes, turning every few minutes, until tender and slightly charred, and most of the liquid has been absorbed.
8Transfer the strips to a plate or bowl and cover with aluminum foil.
9Add another couple of teaspoons of oil to the pan and repeat with the remaining strips.
10Heat a griddle or frying pan over medium heat (or just clean the pan you cooked the portobello strips in and reuse it).
11Cook the tortillas for 30 to 60 seconds on each side, placing them on a plate and covering with aluminum foil when they’re done.
12To serve, place a few portobello strips in a tortilla and top with the avocado-corn salsa. Leftovers will keep in the fridge in separate airtight containers for up to 4 days.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
