Do you also love Mexican cuisine? This recipe with soft tacos is a recipe I make over and over again. This type of taco is filled with fried brown beech mushrooms, king oyster mushrooms, oyster mushrooms, spicy guacamole, cheddar cheese, spring onions, and a squeeze of lime. The king oyster mushrooms cannot be found in the Nordic forests, but are grown in many places in the world. They are found in the wild in Southern Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. King oyster mushrooms are related to oyster mushrooms, which are growing in the wild on tree trunks in the Nordic forests. Go hunting for oyster mushrooms in the fall and winter!
