When I saw C'est La Vegan's post earlier in the week about Baja-style Tempeh Tacos, it looked so good that I put the recipe on my list of things to make. The recipe is from Veganomicon, and it doesn't call for the mushrooms, but after all, Baja-style tacos are often fish-based, so why couldn't they be Lobster Mushroom-based?
On Lobster Mushrooms: I've never had them before. As a matter of fact, I've never even seen them around these parts before. But oddly enough, I stopped at the store on my way home today...and there they were. Strange creatures that they are, I couldn't resist. Then I couldn't wait to try them, so I used them in tonight's recipe.
The tacos are good; tangy and crunchy from the slaw and creamy from the lime & yogurt dressing. The recipe calls for soy yogurt, but I used plain coconut milk yogurt instead. The mushrooms were very solid and stayed pretty firm even after I sauteed them; so along with the tempeh, these tacos had plenty of texture.
