This is a hearty meat-like recipe that only takes a few minutes to grind and mix. I often take this taco “meat” with me when the family is having a taco night. Pictured here with lettuce leaf, Pico de Gallo, Groovy Guacamole and Macadamia Sour Creme. If I’m planning ahead, I also like to make raw tortillas.
Based on a recipe by Matt Amsden. I’ve cut down on the Nama Shoyu, as this taste was a bit overwhelming for me, and added some cayenne for an extra spicy kick. This recipe is best with soaked walnuts!
1½ cup raw walnuts, ground in food processor
1½ teaspoon ground cumin
¾ teaspoon ground coriander
2 teaspoon Nama Shoyu or Braggs
Mix and serve.
i agree with rawker it is fun just adding stuff to this! thank you for the recipe
yummmm in my tum! These were so delicious! I used a big leaf of romain for the shell and filled it with the walnut meat, *guac and pico (I have my own recipe for these that I will post sooon) I LOVED this recipe! Thank you so much! I have the flax seed tortillas in the dehydrator as we speak. I'll have to try them out tonight. Thanks again, these were delish!
This is a great base to jazz up.
I made this recipe for my SAD eating boyfriend last weekend and he absolutely loved it. He made some raw guac to put on top of it and said it was the best taco he had ever had ( raw or cooked ).
I had to try this recipe yesterday and I must say it is wonderful! I think I've found a new addiction... at least it's healthy!
This is really good and easy to prepare, thanks.
I have a secret, this was my very fist raw recipee, and I have been experiementing and loving raw ever since. Thank you, it was delicious, and I felt light, loving, energetic, and inspired afterward.
This was soooo much better than I had expected, but as I'm finding simpler is sometimes better. I took out the Nama Shoyu and just used some salt and garlic.Thanks!
I added chili powder, garlic and lime juice to mine and it was yummy
this is really delicious!
My family loved this recipe. We had it with the groovy guac and some salsa. Quick, easy, and delish.
I made this last night and added garlic, cilantra, onion, and extra cayenne...AMAZING!! This is definately at the top of my favorites list!
this is amazing!
We are just beginning our raw journey and Mexican food has always been a staple being my mom is from New Mexico. Tacos were one of our family favorites and we have tried different fillings but this is by far the best we have found!! Thanks!!!!
This was very good!!
This was very tasty, but I had to kick it up a notch by adding garlic, jalepeno pepper, cilantro and bit of lemon juice. This is a keeper!!!
It was a hit even with my cooked-food friends! They loved it!
I LOVE this! Sometimes I put in a clove of garlic and 6 sun-dried tomatoes. Either way, it's super delicious. I make a layered dip with mashed avocado on the bottom, taco meat in the middle, and fresh salsa on top. I spread the dip on barbecue chips, a recipe I got from Absolutely Abeba's Krazy Krackers (available from rawfamily.com. Delicious!!!
My family LOVED this. Its like a combo of beans and meat. Even my picky non-raw 13 year old said she loved it and would eat it voluntarily as a snack or a meal! I used Chipotle instead of Cayenne and South River Dark Barley Miso instead of Nama Shoyu or Braggs.
I can live on this for the rest of my life...
i made this with pumpkin seeds.. and it was awesome. i enjoyed it with avocado, tomato and some onions. i'm not completely raw, so i used the leftovers and made a little 'burger' thing out of it. that was awesome.
Okay this was so good I kicked it up a notch. Try topping RAW corn chips (RAW FOOD REAL WORLD) with the, some mac cheese. I put it in the dehyrator and BAM... Ranachos:-) Then I topped it off with guacamole (RAW FOOD...), a few cherry Tomatoes and enjoyed every bite. It was soooo much fun.
This is truly a favorite... so quick, so easy, so yummy. My SLP at work wants the recipe and swears up and down that her daughters would love it. :-)
made this for dinner tonight...SOOOOOO good!
I LOVE this recipe! I've made it with pumpkin seeds as well... sooooo good!
bq. Do you need to soak the walnuts first??
The recipe works either way, but it is ideal to soak the walnuts for an hour or two first. If I forget to soak ahead of time, I'll toss the walnuts in water while I am chopping and preparing any of the other ingredients and then make the taco meat last.
I have to thank you for this recipe- I crave it often, and it saves me in those times when my mind starts wandering towards cooked.
Today I put the mixture in a nori sheet, added sliced avocado's, some sprouts and marinated mushrooms and it was so good I had to have 2! Absolutely delish!
Do you need to soak the walnuts first??
i had this last night wrapped in romaine leaves with tomato and avocado slices. it was so quick and easy to make, and so tasty! i might make it again tonight... :)
I made this recipe with guac, salsa, some raw sour cream, and wrapped it in a lettuce leaf. It was delicious and I will definately be making this recipe again.
