Ingredients:

200g cup mushrooms

200g Swiss brown mushrooms

200g flat mushrooms

1 avocado

1 bunch coriander

1 bunch parsley

1 bunch mint

1 red onion

1 jalapeño pepper

2 lemons

1 lime

¼ head iceberg lettuce

½ packet haloumi cheese

sour cream

1 brown onion

100g (1 packet) taco seasoning mix (or make your own)

3 tbsp tomato passata sauce

1 packet soft tacos

extra virgin olive oil

salt and pepper

Guacamole:

1 avocado

¼ red onion, finely diced

½ jalapeño pepper, deseeded and finely chopped

½ cup coriander, finely chopped

½ cup continental parsley, finely chopped

½ cup round leaf mint, finely chopped

½ lemon, juiced

75ml extra virgin olive oil

salt and pepper to taste

Salsa:

3 vine-ripened tomatoes, diced into 5mm cubes

½ cup coriander, finely chopped

½ cup parsley, finely chopped

½ cup mint, finely chopped

½ red onion, finely diced

75ml extra virgin olive oil

30ml red wine or sherry vinegar

salt and pepper to taste

Method:

Shave lettuce lengthways and put in a serving dish. Slice red onion and put in a serving dish. Put sour cream into a serving dish. Pick the rest of the herbs, wash and have ready in a small serving dish

Steam soft tortillas in a tea towel in a steamer or wrapped in a microwave as per directions on the packet.

Guacamole:

Dice the avocado into 5mm cubes. Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl gently (do not mash, guacamole should have a nice texture not mush).

Season to taste and place in a serving dish.

Mixed mushroom filling:

Dice all the mushrooms, stalks and all, into 1cm cubes.

Finely dice the brown onion and sauté in a pan on medium heat with olive oil and a pinch of salt. Once translucent, turn the heat up, add some extra olive oil and put your taco seasoning in (the extra oil is because the mushrooms will soak the oil up), then throw your mushrooms in. If you have a small pan, do it in two batches.

Toss the mushrooms and once three-quarters softened, add the tomato passata sauce and leave for one minute till bubbling.

Season with extra salt, pepper and some lemon juice.

Build your taco, adding the condiments you like and enjoy.
