Raw Recipe of the Week: Walnut Taco "Meat" w/ "cheese"
Taco "Meat" Ingredients
1-1/2 cups raw walnuts, finely ground in the food processor
1-1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1-1/2 tsp. chili powder
3/4 tsp. ground coriander
2 Tbsp. Nama Shoyu (raw soy sauce)
Combine the walnuts, cumin, chili powder and corinader and mix well. Drizzle Nama Shoyu over all and mix well again. It's just that easy :)
Creamy Cashew Cheese Ingredients:
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup Nama Shoyu
1/4 red bell pepper, chopped
2 to 3 cloves garlic, peeled
1-1/4 cups raw cashews, macadamia nuts, pine nuts or a combination
Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender until it's creamy and smooth. Yum!
I had some onion bread made so I spread the cheese on then topped it with the walnut mixture, salsa, lettuce and cilantro. It was SO yummy!! You could easily just put the mixture onto a collard leaf, lettuce leaf or your favorite Raw base. Enjoy!
This recipe is originally from Rawvolution by Matt Amsden. It is a fabulous book full of doable, gourmet and living cuisine. It's a must-have for sure!
