These baked sweet potato mushroom tacos are a delicious meat-free meal everybody will love. Made with all gluten free + vegan ingredients for an easy healthy weeknight dinner recipe.


  • Extra virgin olive oil or olive oil spray
  • 1 can brown lentils, rinsed
  • 1 brown onion, diced
  • ½ cup canned crushed tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning
  • 3 cups (250g/ 9oz) button mushrooms, diced
  • 1 cup (250g) sweet potato puree/ mashed
  • 2 tablespoons vegan cashew cheese *
  • ~1/2 cup shredded non-dairy cheese
  • 810 soft corn tortillas for choice
  • Guacamole, salsa, cheese to serve


  1. Heat a large pan over medium-high heat and add olive oil, mushrooms and onion and sauté for 5 minutes or until fragrant
  2. Add in the lentils and seasonings and mix well so everything is evenly combined
  3. Add the tomatoes and cook for a further 5 minutes
  4. In a medium bowl combine the mashed sweet potato with the cashew cheese. Set aside.
  5. Preheat oven to 180C/350F
  6. Warm the tortillas in microwave for about 30 seconds so they are pliable then lightly grease them
  7. Lay each tortilla flat onto the baking sheet and spread 1 tablespoon of sweet potato on half the tortilla, followed by 2 tablespoons of lentil mixture and top with a light sprinkle of cheese.
  8. Fold tortillas in half, gently pressing down gently to seal—when I fold mine I usually wrap them in foil to help them stay in form!).
  9. Spray the tops of the tacos with oil so they get crispy
  10. Bake in oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the tacos are golden brown and crisp.
  11. Serve with desired toppings while warm!


* Sub your favourite type of cream cheese (dairy works too!)
