Creating recipes if probably my favorite part about food blogging. I love making classic dishes with unexpected ingredients and when the result is exactly what I was going for.. oh, it is so satisfying. I’ve had this version of picadillo in my head for a while but I didn’t have all the ingredients I wanted to use and I was avoiding going to the grocery store. Then, my lovely neighbor showed up with tomatoes from her garden. Win!!

Finally I could put my thoughts and ideas into practice. I love how this “Mushroom Picadillo” turned out! mushrooms are the best substitute for meat, in my opinion. My favorite way to eat Picadillo is in tostadas or tacos so here you have it. Super delicious Vegan Picadillo Tostadas.

If you don’t know what Picadillo is, let me tell you a little bit about it. Picadillo is a Mexican dish made with ground beef and different vegetables like potatoes, carrots, or peas all simmered in a tomato broth. Every family has its own recipe and way to make it. Personally, I’ve never met a Picadillo I didn’t like but my mom’s is my favorite, of course.

If you want to try my traditional Picadillo recipe made with ground beef, you can find it here.

But for now, let’s enjoy this vegan version of it, perfect for your meatless Monday.

Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
