  1. Heat half the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 3-4 minutes until softened.

  4. Divide the mushroom mixture between the warmed tortillas and top with crumbled feta. Fold and serve with guacamole and soured cream.

Expert Tips

  • Add extra protein to this dish by stirring in 100g tinned black beans or red kidney beans with the taco seasoning and water.
  • Use a mix of different mushrooms, if liked. Why not try sliced chestnut and shiitake with some halved button mushrooms.
