A few weekends ago I had a couple of friends coming over and prepared a promising raw vegan food party for them. Some of the dishes were cucumber sandwiches, raw pecan brownies, green smoothie shots…and really tasty raw tacos prepared by a friend. Everyone was asking for recipes and taking notes which for me was the best part of the evening.
So here is my version of semi-raw tacos, if it wasn’t for cashew ‘cheese’ these would be totally raw, but the “kick” this creamy ‘cheese’ gives to the tacos is awesome!
1 cup of raw walnuts (soaked overnight)
1/4 cup of raw almonds
1 tsp. of cumin powder
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. of cayenne pepper
Juice of 1 lime
1 tbsp. of raw coconut aminos
1/4 tsp. of salt
1/2 tsp. of dried parsley flakes
And any toppings you want, I used strips of bell pepper, scallions and cherry tomatoes.
-The night before start by soaking the walnuts in filtered water (make sure the water covers them completely)
-When walnuts are ready, drain them and place them in the food processor along with almonds, spices, lime juice and aminos. Pulse for about 5 minutes stopping and mixing constantly, so that all the spices are well distributed.
-Thoroughly wash your kale leaves, and ensemble tacos. Add your favorite toppings and enjoy!
