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!

In the late winter/early spring I was making tons of raw taco meat. Cayenne, chili powder, almonds, sun dried tomatoes...quite awesome. Weather heated up and I didnt crave warming spices but we may be getting back into that weather again!

Glad you were able to be one of my contest giveaway winners! Enjoy your stevia and LMK how you like it when it shows up!
