Soft Tacos with Roasted Mushrooms, Potatoes & Peppers with Spicy Bread and Butter Pickles & Coriander Pickled Onions

I’m really liking shishito peppers a lot lately. They are so different from bell peppers and chili peppers – almost like a combination pepper that has a wonderful chili like aroma while being mild and not too spicy.  I’ve been using them a lot in omelettes, savory bread puddings, in tacos, and in rice dishes too.  A little blistered with salt and pepper these peppers add wonderful taste and aroma to any dish.

I made soft tacos with shishito pepper, mushrooms, potatoes, and onions. If shishito peppers are not in season in your area or are not available, you can substitute any bell pepper in this recipe. What gives these tacos their unique flavor in addition to the shishito peppers is homemade coriander pickled onions and spicy bread and butter pickles. I posted a recipe for pickled onions with coriander seeds and red chili, and those are the pickled onions I used.

Mushroom Sandwich

Sometimes when I think of vegetables I can picture them as dainty or dashing, pretty or handsome. Tomatoes for example are beautiful – when they are in the basket with other veggies, all eyes are on tomatoes. While dark eggplant, potatoes, onions, and mushrooms look handsome.

With handsome vegetables like mushrooms and caramelized onions what you have with this recipe is a vegetarian mushroom sandwich that will satisfy the taste buds of all genders.

I added paneer (pressed curd cheese) to the dish to give it some substance, but you can also use tofu or any meat of your choice instead.  Here is the recipe.
