  1. Preheat oven to 400F/200C degrees.

  2. In a large bowl, mix together the olive oil, orange juice, vegetable broth, spices, garlic, and salt. Set aside.

  3. Prepare the mushrooms. Slice the caps off and cut them into very thin slices. Then, using your fingers, pinch the stems and shred them into pieces - some thick, some thinner to mimic shredded meat.

  4. Transfer to the bowl and mix until every piece of mushroom is well coated. Arrange on a large baking sheet in a single layer, spreading them as much as you can.

  5. Bake for 45-50 minutes, taking the pan out of the oven every 15 minutes or so to stir thoroughly. The mushrooms are ready when they are golden brown and a bit crispy on the outside (they shouldn’t render any water anymore and look a bit dry. They will reduce in size a lot.

  6. While the mushrooms are cooking, char the tortillas and prepare the taco toppings.

  7. Take them out of the oven and let them cool slightly before serving them in tortillas, with your favorite toppings.
