Taco Tuesday: The Raw Edition


It’s summer time and what better way to celebrate Taco Tuesday than with a cool, easy-to-make, raw taco. It’s walnut meat, which I have posted about before, but I never thought to wrap it in lettuce until I did the raw challenge a while back. I love it for lunch or dinner or any day of the week!

Walnut Meat (makes enough for 4 tacos)
1 cup walnuts
1/4 cup nutritional yeast (nooch)
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 tablespoon tamari
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

Place all ingredients into the food processor. Pulse until the mixture comes together. Set aside.

Cashew Sour Cream
1 cup cashews *
1 cup water
The juice of 1/2 lemon
Pinch salt

*Soak if you don’t have a Vitamix. Drain water and use new water.

Place all ingredients into the blender and let it go until smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust lemon if you want it more tart and salt.

4 big pieces of Boston lettuce
Thinly sliced scallions
Diced tomatoes
Shredded purple cabbage

Drop the walnut meat into the lettuce wrap and top it with everything. Enjoy!
