Kandace's Thoughts

By kandace

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!

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!!!

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 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.

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!

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.
