I knew exactly what I wanted: raw tacos. After hitting a local Latin food store and scoring avocados for 2/$1.00, I got to work creating the healthiest tacos I've ever eaten.
- 1 cup raw walnuts
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1 tsp nama shoyu
- 1/2 jalapeno, de-seeded
- 1T cilantro
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1/4 tsp cayenne
- Pico de gallo
- 1/2 avocado, cubed
- Romaine heart leaves
- Add ingredients (walnuts through cayenne) in a food processor and blend until it reaches your desired consistency. It should hold together well and look similar to ground beef.
- Make a taco by adding a scoop of walnut meat to the inside of a romaine leaf, then topping with pico de gallo, avocado, and whatever else you desire.
This recipe is great because it's so quick and easy to put together. It's also pretty inexpensive, if you can find cheap avocados and disregard the insane price of raw walnuts. I served it along with some raw Mexican rice, which was mighty tasty, but not exactly where I want it yet. I'll share the recipe once I perfect it.
Oh, and the pico de gallo was made by tossing together 1 chopped tomato, 1/4 of a chopped large onion, 1 minced garlic clove, the zest & juice of 1/2 lime, some cilantro, salt and pepper and letting it sit in the fridge for at least an hour. Simple and fresh.
Now, I think it may be time for some macaroon making.
