Raw Taco Meat and Tortillas

Taco "Meat" & Shell

This tastes just like taco meat! This is one of my favorite recipes because I can make it in 20 min. You can use a collard green or any green of your choice as a wrap or you can make a corn, flax seed tortilla. I will show you this recipe below. I make this at least once a week and it seems like the longer it sits in the fridge the better it tastes. We're lucky if it stays 3 days in the fridge!

Taco Meat Ingredients:
Tools: Food Processor
Prepare time: 10 minutes
Yield: 6 tacos

1 large carrot
2 cups soaked nuts (possibilities: almonds, walnuts, pecans, and cashews)
1 green, red, or yellow pepper
1/2 medium sized tomato
1/4 onion
1 garlic clove
2 tbsp soy sauce -or- light miso paste
1 tbsp lime
1 tbsp lemon
2 tbsp cumin
2 tbsp cayenne pepper
1 tbsp cilantro
1/2 tbsp paprika
1 chili pepper
Optional: agave nectar, salt, pepper

Directions: Soak your nuts until sprouted. You don't have to soak the nuts but it is easier to digest if you do and also the texture will be smoother. Mix all the ingredients starting with the nuts and carrots. Then add the rest of the ingredients.

                  For an easier, quicker recipe you can buy sprouted corn tortillas at the store.                                             
       Corn Shell Ingredients:
    Yield: 6 tacos
Tools: Food Processor, Dehydrator
Prepare Time: 10 minutes
Dehydrate Time: 4-6 hours

4 ears corn (cut off the kernels)
1 cup flax seed (ground)
1 red bell pepper
1/2 medium sized tomato
1 tsp lemon
1 tsp lime
2 tbsp cayenne pepper

Directions: Mix all the ingredients. Spread a thin layer on dehydrator and dehydrate for 4-6 hours. You can make the them small to use them as chips. When you want to fold the shell to make a taco, boil water and hole the shell over the steam. It will become bendable and you can wrap it around your ingredients.

There are so many different ingredients you can substitute or add to make this a favorite raw recipe. Not only is it healthy but it is also inexpensive and easy to make. Next time you are craving tacos, keep this recipe in mind. 

Don't forget about the salsa. Raw salsa is very easy to make. Just add your favorite spices to a blend of tomatoes, peppers, and onions.
