Raw Tacos with Marinated Mushroom Meat and Guacamole

This was one of my favourite lunch or just any time recipe.  The marinated mushrooms makes a great taco meat and doesn’t cost a fortune, it also pairs amazingly with the guacamole.  Its the best explosion of flavour you can have in your mouth and refreshes you and makes your face feel all glowy the whole day.
