Recipe: Portobello Mushroom Tacos

Portobello Mushroom Tacos Recipe

Got to love this tasty, healthy, vegetarian recipe because it’s simple, delicious, and of course healthy! Tempeh is a fermented soy food containing protein, fiber, antioxidants, and beneficial bacteria to improve gut health. What’s not to love about that? This portobello tacos recipe makes 4 to 6 servings.
