This post is sponsored by Mission Foods. The opinions and text are all mine.

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

Yield: SERVES 4
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.

Tex Mex Grilled Tofu Quesadillas

You will not miss meat at all because these beauties are full of flavor. Even my children loved it, so i do not have to tell you anything else because that is a rare occasion, my friends.

I wanted to create a recipe that if I have a vegetarian friend over, we can serve these fabulous grilled meatless quesadillas. As you all know, we are not vegetarians; however, every once in a while, we have a full-meal without meat.

You will not miss meat at all because these be

The best part of warm weather is the outdoor activities! From playing soccer, gardening, as well as grilling. Oh, and we cannot wait to get out and grill!

Soaking up this beautiful weather after a long winter indoors, we break out the grill, and this time we used Pellets. They are made with all-natural, pure flavor hardwoods and absolutely no fillers, binders or preservatives, bringing out the best flavor you could ask.

You can, of course, make these quesadillas on any grill, even indoor grill skillet. I do not think that they will not taste good; however, when it comes to a flavor grill always wins in my book. Something is rewarding and satisfying when you cook food over an open fire.

I am not a fan of summer, but I think the best part of summer is grilled food, sweet in-season fruit, and freshly picked summer vegetables. Mmmhm! Well, I know that many of you agree!

Tex-Mex Grilled Tofu Quesadillas

Yield: Serves 6

Tex-Mex Grilled Tofu Quesadillas are easy to make and amazingly tasty. Now everyone could enjoy and celebrate meatless meals together because my quesadillas are delightfully delicious.

Ingredients

  • 6 soft tortillas
  • 1 pounds Firm Tofu
  • 1 cup Guacamole
  • 1/2 cup Pico de gallo
  • 2 cups Mexican blend cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup Refried beans
  • 1 tablespoon of oil

Tofu Seasoning:

  • 1/4 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp Spanish paprika powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste

Instructions

Seasoning:

  1. Mix all the ingredients for the season and set aside.

Tofu Prep:

  1. Open tofu package drain water out and
    take each block of tofu and wrap with thick layers of kitchen paper towels or a
    clean cotton towel. Press slightly and pat dry. Make sure that most of the
    moisture is gone.    
  2. Slice into 1/2-inch thick tofu slices,
    and again pat dry each slab with paper towels.
  3. Add to the large and flat plate, then
    sprinkle on both sides with prepared seasoning, gently press to coat. Cover and
    refrigerate for 15 minutes.

Grill Prep:

  1. Open your pellets bag. I used Classic which is great for almost anything you want in your grill. Flavorful
    and strong. Wood pellets are poured into a storage container also known as a
    hopper. The pellets are then fed into a cooking chamber by an auger that is
    powered by electricity.
  2. When ready to cook, smoke setting with
    the lid open.
  3. Wait for the fire to start about 5 min, depending
    on the grill type and model.
  4. Now, close the lid and increase the
    temperature to the desired temperature and preheat for about 10-15 minutes.
  5. I cooked tofu on 350F, so my grill
    temperature was set to 350 degrees.


Grilling:

  1. Place tofu in the preheated and ready to
    cook grill to get infused with a real wood smoky flavor.
  2. Grill for 5 minutes on each side.
  3. Take it off the grill and start
    assembling. Do not turn the grill off yet.

Assembling and making quesadillas:

  1. On one side of the tortilla evenly spread
    about 1 tablespoon or so of guacamole, spindle freshly chopped pico de gallo, a
    handful of cheese then place grilled tofu on the top. Depending on the side of
    your tortilla, I would say about 4 to 5 slices to cover it. Add just a sprinkle
    more cheese.
  2. On the other tortilla spread about a
    tablespoon or two of retired beans, then cover the other tortilla with tofu.
    Making a sandwich. Lightly press and brush with oil.
  3. Continue until tofu is gone. You could
    make approximately 3 quesadillas with my method.
  4. Place each quesadilla on the hot grill
    and grill for about 4 to 6 minutes on each side or until the cheese is melted
    and grill marks are formed.
  5. Slice each quesadilla across making
    trundles and serve immediately with salsa, pico de gallo, and other fixings.

Phyllo Triangles Stuffed with Cheese

Phyllo Triangles Stuffed with Cheese

Phyllo Triangles Stuffed with Cheese is a fantastic appetizer, party food, or you could just eat it as a snack. I grew up eating this tasty treat just stuffed with cow cheese mixed with eggs, then stuffed in the homemade dough.

Many of you call this one Greek Tiropitas. However, people from the country that I grew up in know it as sirnica, gibanica, burek sa sirom, or pita sa sirom and all that means cheese pie which is savory. I will post a recipe for my tasty cheese pie which is, in my opinion, better than a pizza.

 

Phyllo Triangles Stuffed with Cheese

I love phyllo dough. It is so versatile and we can make so many sweet and savory dishes or desserts using these incredible sheets.

What do you make with phyllo dough sheets? Usually, I would make it stuffed with ground beef, also known as Burek or Börek simply because my lovely family requests that one the most.

TAP HERE FOR MORE TASTY APPETIZER IDEAS

That being said, I absolutely love it stuffed with shredded potatoes, which are sauteed with onions and well seasoned prior to stuffing it in the dough.

Oh, my mouth is watering as I was writing this one, which is probably the reason to make it asap.

Anyways, these are phenomenal to pack for school or work lunch. When my kids were actually taking lunches to school I would pack these for them. They are convenient and delicious hot or cold.

Also, if you do not want to bake all these triangles at once just pack in between wax paper or parchment paper and place in an airtight container then freeze.

They freeze beautifully, but I am not sure about cooked pastry. They probably do freeze well too.

You see, in my house, they never last too long so everything is eaten as soon as I serve them on the table. Well, most of the time we eat it for lunch just like this with some protein on the side as well as salad.

I am sure that you would be able to air-fry them too. Nevertheless, I have not tried that one yet, but if you by any chance air-fry them, please let us know. I would love to hear how they turned out.

Another great idea is that you could add sauteed or defrosted pinch in the cheese mixture. Just make sure to squeeze all the moisture out.

Phyllo Triangles Stuffed with Cheese

Yield: Serves 4-6
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

Phyllo Triangles Stuffed with Cheese is an amazing appetizer, party food, or you could just eat it as a snack. Easy, simple, and delicious!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb. feta cheese, 1 pound block and you crumble the cheese yourself
  • 1 block cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tbsp sour cream (optional)
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 lb. phyllo dough thawed 20-24 sheets
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp oil

Instructions

  1. Mix eggs, and cream cheese with an electric mixer if possible, add ground black pepper then crumbled feta cheese. It is better to get a block of cheese than pre-crumbled, it takes you less than 20 seconds to crumble the cheese yourself, but it makes a huge difference. Trust me!
  2. Now take one phyllo dough and unwarp. You will find two in one package. These measurements are or about 24 sheets. Please read the notes.
  3. Place all the sheets on the dumbed cotton kitchen towel and cover. It is best if you work on a cutting board or similar.
  4. Melt unsalted butter and add two tablespoons of oil, mix well. You can use clarified butter instead. If non is available using only oil will work as well.
  5. Take one sheet and butter it completely. Make sure not to press too hard, just brush lightly with your pastry brush or similar, then place another sheet on the top. Run a sharp knife down the sheet lengthwise in half. You will have 2 triangles using two sheets of phyllo dough.
  6. Place two tablespoons of cheese mixture at the end of the strip. Fold over the corner to make a triangle. Continue folding from side to side till you get to the end of the strip. Place on a baking sheet. Brush tops with a bit of butter. Repeat the process until you’ve used up all of your fillings. I usually make around 12 to 14 with one half.
  7. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Allow these tringles to cool before serving. I usually serve them with salad.

Notes

  • Phyllo, Filo, or Fillo comes in all shapes and sizes but for this recipe, use 1 pound pack of sheets. Athens is the only available brand for me. I get it in Publix or Kroger, freezer section where you find frozen novelties or desserts; ice creams, pies, pie shells, whipped cream in the tub, etc.
  • The pack contains two 8-oz bags of (APPROXIMATELY) 20 sheets each measuring 9 x 14-inches.
  • My pack came with two like any other pack, HOWEVER, sometimes one pack has more sheets than the other and I was not aware until I started to WRITE this recipe because my facts were not matching. So one-half pack came with 24 sheets which would make 14 triangles. On the pack, it did say approximately 20 in each. The recipe is not off, it just that my box of phyllo was not correct. I just counted the other pack and it got only 18 CT. sheets.
  • WITH THAT BEING SAID, FOR THIS CHEESE MIXTURE MEASUREMENT YOU CAN MAKE 12 TO 14 TRIANGLES, DEPENDING HOW MUCH YOU ADD IN. For each triangle, you will need two sheets. I hope that makes sense to you if not just comment below.
