An air fryer is one of my favorite kitchen appliances, so I thought to use Mission® Tortillas and create these simple vegetarian air fryer mushroom and cheese taquitos.

 

Don’t you just love the way these taquitos look?

 

Not only are you going to love the taste and texture, but they are super easy to prep, plus you will not miss the meat factor at all.

 

Obviously, these are cooked in an air fryer, however, you can easily use your skillet or bake them in the oven.

I partnered with Mission Foods for this post, so I used Mission Foods tortillas to create this delightful vegetarian recipe, which can be turned into a vegan dish if you use plant-based cheese.

 

Ever since I started my low-carb journey, I began experimenting with different recipes, and I enjoyed making my meals using Mission Foods Carb Balance tortillas. I love that they are keto-friendly, soft, and taste so good! It’s the perfect solution for any picky eaters out there.

 

If you did not know already, you can find Mission tortillas in the bread or Mexican/multicultural foods aisle at Publix.

 

mission low carb tortillas

I like that they have so many options for anyone’s taste and dietary needs; gluten-free tortillas, protein tortillas, whole wheat tortillas, low carb tortillas, low-calorie tortillas, and smaller street taco-sized tortillas.

 

Anyway, I thought it would be an excellent substitution for shredded taco chicken if I used King oyster mushrooms. I love mushrooms, so this was very flavorful.

 

Just in case you are unable to find King oyster mushrooms, I would suggest shiitakes, which are easier to find and less expensive, and just as delicious.

I will love it if you try this recipe.

Air Fryer Mushroom and Cheese Taquitos

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

An air fryer is one of my favorite kitchen appliances, so I thought to use Mission Tortillas and create these simple vegetarian air fryer mushrooms and cheese taquitos. They are super simple and tasty,

Ingredients

  • 1 Mission Fajita - Whole Wheat - Carb Balance - 8ct - 8.0oz
  • 2-3 King Oyster mushrooms, depending on the size
  • 1/8 cup olive oil + for brushing
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend, or any other in hand

Homemade Taco Seasoning

  • 1/4-1/2 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste

Instructions

  1. Slightly wet a cotton kitchen towel and clean oyster mushrooms.
  2. Separate or cut off the mushroom top from the stem. We will use only stems for this recipe.
  3. Using a fork, apply pressure up and down lengthwise, all around.
  4. Then with fingers, pull apart oyster mushroom stems.
  5. Combine all the spice mix ingredients in a mixing bowl, mix well, add oil and like juice, and olive oil. 
  6. Add shredded mushrooms into a bowl with spices and coat well.
  7. Place on the baking sheet and bake or air fry at 350F for 7-10 minutes.
  8. After mushrooms are cooked (sometimes I like to cut them in hlaf becase they could be too long), add about 2-3 tablespoons of shredded cheese, a shredded Mexican blend of cheeses work best.
  9. Add seasoned mushrooms and roll tortilla into a thin roll; place in the baking sheet and continue.
  10. This makes 6 to 8 Mission Fajita size tortillas.
  11. Brush each rolled tortilla with olive oil and air fry at 375F for 10 minutes.
  12. Serve with pico de gallo and guacamole.

Notes

  • You may add 1 tablespoon of corn starch to taco seasoning if you wish.
  • You could use other Mission Tortillas; gluten-free tortillas, protein tortillas, whole wheat tortillas, low carb tortillas,
    low-calorie tortillas, or smaller street taco-sized tortillas.
  • Plan the amount of filling if your tortillas are larger.

  2. Heat a skillet on medium heat and a drizzle of oil add garlic and sauté for a minute.

General Tso’s Tofu

General Tso’s Tofu

General Tso’s Tofu is tasty, beautiful and incredibly easy to make.

I can’t even tell you how many times I get the question about tofu so I try to create delicious recipes using this amazing ingredient.

General Tso's Tofu is tasty, beautiful and incredibly easy to make.
General Tso’s Tofu

Since it literally does not taste like anything you must flavor it with the seasonings.

In this case, General Tso’s, Asian inspired sauce is a phenomenal addition to tofu.

It not only flavors it but gives umami that you really want. I am only going to suggest eating it right away.

The reason why I am suggesting eating it right away is that it will lose its crispiness if it sits too long.

We all know that General Tso’s is probably the most well known Asian fried chicken recipe of all, but you must give this one a go.

Also, you must use extra firm or at least firm tofu for this dish.

Softer types of tofu are usually used in soups and stews, although I like to squeeze in firm tofu in my soups as well.

So, the taste of this is a bit sweet, hardly spicy and a whole lot of delicious. It smacks your lips delicious, that is. I have a feeling that you love it.

Well, if you like tofu as well as the flavors of Asian cuisine then I know you will love it.

My husband and I enjoyed it so much that I decided to share this simple and easy recipe.

General Tso's Tofu

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Additional Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

General Tso's Tofu recipe is easy and so tasty. Simple meatless dishes always hit the spot.

Ingredients

Tofu:

  • 1 block extra-firm organic tofu
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds oil
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons oil

Sauce:

  • 1 cup chicken broth (alt. vegetable broth for vegetarians)
  • 1/2 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch (mixed with 2 tablespoons water)/ you can use any other sauce thickener.

Garnish:

  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • A drizzle of sesame oil

Instructions

  1. Take the tofu out of the container and press the whole block between two plates lined with paper towels and top the whole setup with a heavy can. If you have a TOFU press that is helpful as well. This will press out excess moisture from the tofu and make adding flavor easier. Also, pressed tofu absorbs liquids like soy sauce marinate that we are using much better.. Slice or cube the tofu after pressing.
  2. Combine soy sauce and sesame oil together and add over the cubed tofu. Allow it to marinate for 10 to 15 minutes. Try to turn it a few times so it coats every side.
  3. Coat the tofu in starch before frying. The alternative to corn starch: You may use arrowroot powder is a fine powder, very similar to cornstarch. It is also gluten-free so if you're sensitive to corn-based products use this powder. It crisps the tofu just like cornstarch, although it might stick to the pan so be aware of that.
  4. Set a large frying pan or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil. It should not smoke so allow it to just heat. Cast iron holds a higher temperature so turn the heat just a bit down if you are using a cast-iron skillet.
  5. Add the tofu in a single layer. If your skillet is smaller then make it in two batches. Do not overcrowd a skillet. The tofu should sizzle upon contact when you place it in the hot oil, if not wait for a few seconds until it heats up properly. That is why you should add one and see if the oil is hot enough.
  6. Fry tofu until it is golden. Wait until the tofu releases from the pan before browning the next side; the underside of the tofu should be golden-brown. Continue frying until all sides are browned and crispy.
  7. Place each batch on the kitchen paper towel or wire rack, whichever you prefer.
  8. Put the ingredients for the sauce, except for cornstarch and water mixture, in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
  9. Meanwhile, combine cornstarch and water and mix until smooth in texture. Slowly add to the lightly boiling sauce while continuously stirring.
  10. Cook for a couple of minutes or until sauce thickens.
  11. Add crispy tofu to the sauce and coat it well. Garnish with sesame seeds and chopped green onions. Serve immediately. I like drizzling a bit of sesame oil just before serving, but it is optional.

Notes

  • If you wish to use store-bought General Tso's Sauce, you are more than welcome.
  • Tofu must be extra firm or at least firm for this dish.
  • If you are vegetarian using vegetable broth for the sauce
