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!

Very good, but I skipped the corriander and didn't soak the walnuts (didn't have time). I will make it again!

Raw walnuts are so expensive:( I see that people have made this with pumpkin seeds--do you still use 1 1/2 cups?

This was dalish. I added some sproated garbanzos to the mix and it was quite tasty. Thanks for the goodness.

Does it matter what kind of walnuts?

I am new to going raw but I can't wait to try this. I wonder if I can get this past my hubby? He thinks lentils are an exotic food-lol

hazifanasy: I'd soak walnuts for an hour or two.

this recipe was soooo good! I made it tonight and I put it in the dehydrator for about 45 mins just to warm it up! This is my new favorite recipe! Thanks

So simple and delicious! I had them for dinner last night, as a midmorning meal and then later in the afternoon today. I let diced tomatoes marinate in the nut mixture overnight and they became even more incredible.

Yum! I'm not 100% raw yet, but I'm getting there and I'm trying to find more recipes so being raw will be fun. And this is defintiely a keeper!

I put just a bit of olive oil and water because I didn't have any nama shoyu. And I the only nuts I have right now is walnuts and I don't even like them, but with all the spices (cumin, coriander, chili powder, garlic powder, salt..) it was really good on romaine lettuce with tomatoes. Oh, and if you put a tad of agave it's reminiscent of salsa on it.

And I told my non-raw mom to try some and she said it was delicious! I'm slowly but surely changing the ways of my family. bwahahaa!! ;D

I loved this, and even my daughter, (who has always turned her nose to my veggie thingy's as she calls them) preferred her soft shell taco filled with this as opposed to beef!

DELICIOUS! DELICIOUS!! DELICIOUS!!! My meat-eating husband was surprised that it tasted exactly like "real" taco meat! =) Thanks so much! I am about to go make some more right now! ;-) I have been eating it on top of my salad to make taco salad! Sooooo good!

Honey, dinner's ready! This tastes very much like what Ursula serves at her Good Mood Food raw café here in Huntington Beach. Don't you hate it when people add and subtract ingredients in YOUR recipe? No? Well, I used a small bunch of fresh cilantro instead of coriander, one garlic clove, a splash of lime juice, more than a dash of cayenne, and plumb forgot the shoyu and it was still delish - served on a beautiful romaine leaf with sliced tomatoes and avocadoes. Move over, Ursula!
