2 tbsp Vegetable oil, 12 fresh corn tortillas, 115g vegan mozzarella cheese, chopped coriander optional, chopped onions optional,and fresh lime wedges optional.


Making the vegan birria sauce

Take your dried guajillo chilli peppers, Ancho chilli peppers, Arbol chilli peppers, and pasilla chilli peppers, and using scissors, cut the stalk off, and remove the seeds (if you like it spicy then leave them in). Place them in a jug or pan of hot water and leave them to soak for approximately 20 – 30 minutes.

Next, line a baking tray with parchment paper and place your garlic and onions, and, using your hands make sure that they are all covered with vegetable oil. Now, grill them under high heat until you see that they are charred around the edges, approximately 20 – 30 minutes, remove them from the oven and place them in a food processor or blender.

Drain the rehydrated chili peppers and add them to the blender, add oil, vegetable stock, Mexican dried oregano, cumin seeds, whole peppercorns, whole cloves, allspice, and ground cinnamon.

Blend until you have a smooth sauce. Transfer to a pan and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat, place the lid on and simmer for approx. 45 minutes to an hour.

Meanwhile, you can be preparing your mushrooms. Take your mushrooms and using your hands shred them so they are thin slithers of mushrooms.

Place them in a bowl and add oil, apple cider vinegar, onion powder, garlic powder, and kosher salt.

Toss the mushrooms, and then cover them and set them aside, leaving them to marinate while your sauce is simmering.

Once the sauce is ready, place a frying pan over medium heat, add oil and when it’s hot, place your shredded mushrooms, be careful not to overload the pan have one layer only. Cook your mushrooms until you see that they have started to crisp up around the edges and are turning brown, for approximately 12 minutes.

Then it’s time to add your sauce, add a ladle or so of sauce to the mushrooms, stir and cook for a further 3 – 5 minutes.

Place another pan over medium-high heat and add oil. Now, take your fresh corn tortilla and dip it into the birria sauce, so that the whole tortilla is covered in sauce.

Now, place the tortilla in the pan, add vegan mozzarella cheese and mushrooms to one-half of the tortilla, cook until the bottom of your tortilla is starting to crisp and turn brown, approximately 1½ minutes.

Then, using a spatula fold over the tortilla, and press down gently to hold it together.

Carefully remove your birria taco, serve immediately with dipping sauce, chopped coriander, chopped onion, and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.
