Caribbean Tortillas With Mango Salsa

Caribbean food and Mexican food both have so much to offer in the flavour department so why not combine them into one amazing mouth-party of a meal! This is definitely what I would describe as fun food! Its bright, it’s full of nuanced flavours and you don’t need a knife and fork to eat it! C’mon anything that you can eat with your hands gets an automatic thumbs up from me!

This recipe sees the mushrooms offer their meaty texture and awesome ability to soak up flavour acting as the ‘meat’ filling of the tortilla, the mango salsa then harmonises wonderfully by offering up a light and fruity element.

I served these up with a bowl of tomato rice and a bowl of grated Violife vegan cheese both on the side for people to add to their tortillas or simply put on their plates. The result went down a treat and had everyone asking for more! Be warned, make plenty!
