The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

This raw taco meat recipe has been an excellent, hearty base and my husband loves it--more than I do, even.

I often spread this recipe on romaine lettuce, and I top it with tomatoes and fresh sprouts. Sprouted adzuki beans go surprisingly well with this recipe. It's a perfect addition to a raw meal because it adds a heartiness and depth that's hard to get on a raw food diet.

I have been a vegetarian since 2001. Once I went vegetarian I immediately replaced meat with soy products.

One of the most difficult parts of my transition to the raw lifestyle has been to give up the soy and tofu products that were staples in my husband's and my diet.

As you can tell by the ingredients, this raw taco meat recipe is quite small. Double up as necessary. I seem to like small recipes because I am thrifty and I want to try a small batch before I invest 2 cups of this or that into a recipe that doesn't turn out well.

Hmmm, smell of sundried tomatoes.... Perhaps you can use the ones that have been soaked in oil first, they don't smell as bad.

Lettuce wraps, very simple. I just lay out a big piece of romaine, fill it up lengthwise, and then close it lengthwise and gobble it up!

It was awesome but I hate the smell of sundried tomatoes! Do you have any idea what to do about it? And how do you wrap the lettuce?
Thanks!

Substituted Pine Nuts instead of Walnuts. Added some Crimini and Shiitake mushrooms for a chewy meaty texture. Used Chipotle Peppers in addition to the soaked sundried tomatoes for some smokey heat (very ripe jalapeños dried with smoke over a couple of days, so raw grey area). Laid it in Kale leaves for "tortilla shells", with Guacamole, Pico de Gallo and diced peppers with a squeeze of lime.

Making this right now and wondering if it would hold up in the freezer? Would love to make a mega-batch and then just pull out as needed? Thanks! :)

I LOVE this recipe and your blog! Keep up the great work! Thank you so much for sharing. I featured a modified version today as I was out of sun-dried tomatoes. My husband LOVED it and declared it a "keeper" : http://www.artisticvegan.com/100-raw-gluten-free-tacos-with-walnut-taco-meat/

Would another nut, like almonds or pecans work? I'm allergic to walnuts.

Hi Dana! Yes, pecans would work totally fine in this recipe instead of walnuts. (No to almonds though - too grainy and not oily enough.)

Can you use the oil from soaking the sun-dried tomatoes for the oil in the recipe?
