  • 4 portobellos
  • 1 red onion , sliced
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons your favorite vegan BBQ sauce

Additional Ingredients for the Tacos

  • 4 taco shells (or read in the post how to make your own hard-shell tacos with soft tortillas)
  • 1 cup salad , chopped
  • 4 cherry tomatoes , halved
  • 1 tablespoon thai basil


  • Clean the portobellos and heat in a large pan on medium heat without oil. Season with salt. Caramelize the onions in the same pan by adding water when they stick to the pan. After 10 to 15 minutes, the onions and portobellos should be soft. 
  • Transfer the portobellos in a bowl (we don't want to scratch the pan) and pull/mash them apart with two forks to get that authentic 'pulled'-look.
  • Transfer the pulled portobello back in the pan to the caramelized onions, add bbq sauce and mix everything together. Re-heat until hot.
  • To assemble the Portobello Tacos: Fill chopped lettuce, then the pulled portobellos and the halved cherry tomatoes into the hard-shell tacos. Sprinkle with thai basil and enjoy!
