Oven Baked Easy Vegan Tacos

Nick says that these tacos are f*** amazing! And I agree, they are packed with flavour, thanks to a quick baking process, the tortillas are gently crispy. Perfection! This recipe comes together in about 30 minutes, which makes it a perfect weeknight dinner to enjoy with family.

Makes 12 tacos 🌮


  • 6 medium mushrooms

  • 1 red onion

  • ½ cup of chopped walnuts

  • 1 red capsicum/bell pepper

  • 1 yellow capsicum/bell pepper

  • 1 tsp sweet paprika powder

  • 1 tsp cumin powder

  • ½ tsp chili powder

  • 1/3 cup of water

  • 2 Tbsp tomato paste

  • Salt to taste

  • 12 taco tortillas

  • 2 cups of cheese (I used cheddar and mozzarella @angelfoodcheese )

  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil to brush


  1. Prepare the ingredients: chop vegetables, walnuts and mushrooms.

  2. Heat a large frying pan to medium-high heat and pour extra virgin olive oil.

  3. Add red onion and garlic and fry for 2 minutes.

  4. Add mushrooms, walnuts, and spices. Mix well and fry for 3-4 more minutes.
