Easy Vegan Roasted Butternut Squash and Portobello Tacos

September 19, 2018

Personally, I love many things about fall and winter. In fact, there are only a few things that I don’t like about fall and winter, one being that there are fewer fresh fruits and vegetables available and in season. This has a tendency to translate into less of one of my favorite foods: tacos.

If you don’t like delicious tacos, you’re probably on the wrong blog post, and it’s possible that we could never be friends in real life. These savory, easy vegan roasted butternut squash and portobello tacos are my answer to utilizing more wintery foods (like butternut squash) to still make a really, really good taco that’s sure to impress everyone regardless of their dietary preferences.

It may be the case that you’ve never had butternut squash, and just as possible that at some point you bought a butternut squash from the store or farmers market, only to never cut it up because you weren’t really sure how. It’s awkward to cut up, you guys.
If the latter is the case, I suggest buying it in a pre-cut way at your local grocery store first and committing to hacking a whole butternut squash apart another time. I’m not saying that this is from experience with butternut squash, but I’ve certainly bought large produce items with which I’m unfamiliar and taken forever to use them.
Okay, maybe just one butternut squash.
These  Easy Vegan Roasted Butternut Squash and Portobello Tacos are a hardy and satisfying dinner when you throw in black beans, rich flavor of portobello mushrooms, and a savory homemade adobo sauce. Of course, if you aren’t about the making sauce from scratch life, you can substitute whatever other sauce you like. My personal recommendations for store-bought items would be some sort of Adobo sauce, or even the tasty enchilada sauce that Trader Joe’s carries. If you try something else that turns out great, let me know so I know!
In the meantime, here’s that Easy Vegan Roasted Butternut Squash and Portobello Tacos recipe:

Easy Vegan Roasted Butternut Squash and Portobello Tacos

Simple, Savory, and hardy tacos to get you through the fall and winter in the best way.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 2


Butternut Squash and Black Beans

  • 2 cup butternut squash cubed
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 1 pinch sea salt and black pepper
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 cup black beans cooked

Homemade Savory Adobo Sauce

  • 1 tbsp avocado or coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup onion
  • 4 cloves garlic (use less if you want, I just love garlic)
  • 1 15-ounce can tomato sauce
  • 1 whole chipotle pepper in adobo sauce (plus around 1 tsp of the sauce in the jar)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1-2 tbsp coconut sugar

Portobello Mushrooms

  • 4-5 large portobello mushrooms stems removed, chop into 1/2 inch slices
  • 1 tbsp avocado or melted coconut oil

Making the taco happen and topping ideas

  • 8 small flour or corn tortillas warm them in a cast iron pan for the best tasting tortilla ever
  • chopped cilantro
  • red onion
  • avocado
  • lime juice


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Add your cubed butternut squash to a baking sheet and drizzle with 1 tbsp of melted coconut oil and add the spices. Toss everything around on the pan to combine, and bake the squash for 15-20 minutes. It should be tender and golden brown. 

  2. While the squash is doing its thing in the oven, prepare the homemade sauce if you've decided to go for it. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, add the oil, onion, and garlic. Cook and stir for a few minutes. Turn heat to low and add tomato sauce, diced chipotle pepper, adobo sauce, water, cumin, sea salt, chili powder, and coconut sugar. Stir it all up and simmer for 5 minutes. 

  3. Once the sauce is done simmering, transfer it to a blender or food processor and blend until it's nice and smooth. Feel free to taste it at this point and add other ingredients that you feel are necessary. 

  4. When the squash is about to finish up in the oven, heat a large skillet (I love using cast iron here)over medium-high heat. Once it's ready, add your oil and mushrooms. Saute for several minutes, or until soft and brown. Then add 1/4 cup of the homemade adobo sauce (or store bought sauce if that's what you went with). Stir to combine everything and cook for a few minutes before setting it aside off of the heat. 

  5. Add cooked squash and black beans to the large skillet along with a little more sauce, and stir everything together gently. Warm up your tortillas, then serve up your tacos with some or all of the suggested toppings. These will keep for a few days, but they're best fresh because of the mushrooms.

    May 31st, 2019 at 21:00

    Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God.

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4). For a time he will bring about a false peace, but “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15)…then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it. Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark. Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    Visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to see proof for these things and why the Bible truly is the word of God!

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever…God bless!


    We all know God exists. Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all. Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No. So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does. Who is capable of knowing everything? God. So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God.

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature. And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist.

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero. What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing. Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes. Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major “holy” books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things. Watch a potential life-changing video on the front page of http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data. He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists.

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: “For the wages of sin is death…” (Romans 6:23).

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life. Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself. All the law hang on these commands. We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom. If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin. The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law. If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish. For sin is the transgression of the law. We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like. Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26). If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2). Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations. It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15). When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God. For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14).

    The oldest religion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27). What religion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what religion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23). There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray. This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment. Unlike religion, holiness cannot be created. It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit. Jesus is more than a religion; He is about having a personal relationship with the Father. Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments. Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!
