What’s better than plain old tacos? Beer-marinated portobello mushroom tacos with an incredible avocado corn salsa!! I mean, are you drooling yet? I am. And what’s better than that? I get to review and share this recipe from my awesome friend Kristy’s new book, But My Family Would Never Eat Vegan! This book is not only filled with amazing recipes, but I love, I mean LOVE the way the chapters are broken up. And you get a chance to WIN a copy! Have I got your attention yet? Keep reading.
When I first got this book in the mail, I was instantly drawn to the fun bright cover. We all eat with our eyes first, and if the cover of a book does not draw you in, then there’s a problem. I kind of want to close my eyes and literally jump into the feast going on on this cover, Mary Poppins style (Did I just date myself here? Yep. I did.). This book literally has something for everyone, every excuse, every occasion, every meal. I’m serious. Good luck finding a missing piece! The hilarious, but very real, names of each chapter are simply the best.
My top five favorite chapters from “But My Family Would Never Eat Vegan”:
- I don’t have time to cook elaborate family dinners!
- If forced to choose between chicken wings and me, my spouse would choose the wings.
- My sister thinks vegan baking is something only hippies do.
- Uncle John thinks his comfort food is better than mine…and won’t shut up about it.
- Vegan food will zap all the romance on date night.
I mean, hilarious right?! But really, so true. I love that she addressed just about everything in this book. By far my favorite is the quick and easy meals. As a mom of three, and a blogger myself, I need fast most of the time. That’s why I was drawn to these portobello mushroom tacos. I put them in to marinate the night before, then day of it was so fast and easy: cook the mushroom slices and throw together the salsa! And they are SO flavorful. Word of caution, you need to like the taste of the beer you use. So you may as well buy a six pack, just to make sure 😉 Happy tacoing! And make sure you enter the giveaway below!
