Everyone loves tacos, specially children. Here we have a variation of the traditional taco style where instead of beef we are using mushrooms, walnuts and spices to make the taco meat, perfect for meat-less Mondays. This combination of mushroom and walnut makes it so tasty and crunchy that I promise you wont miss the "beef". If you want to take it a bit further, use Romaine lettuce whole leafs to replace the tacos shells. Much healthier, low in calories and low in fat!
