Raw Tacos

Raw Tacos.....I LOVE raw tacos!!!!

When the family has their traditional chicken tacos I make a raw taco recipe for myself. I absolutely LOVE this raw taco recipe. It is so simple and has so much flavor. I wrap it up in romaine leaves or even collard leaves that have the tough spine removed. I also have two recipes for nacho sauces that can be drizzled on top, but I never seem to get around to making the sauce because I gobble these up so quickly. I don't think they need any sauce personally but if you are or were a cheese person, I would make a nacho sauce. I will post two recipes for nacho sauces. I am going to try them both very soon. I have been wanting to use them for dipping fresh veggies and also on top of a veggie burger. When the family grills I like to make my veggie burgers. A lot of grilling will be going on this holiday weekend, so I guess I better get to making some of this sauce. Here are the recipes:

Raw Tacos

2 Cups raw walnuts, soaked
1/4 Cup cilantro, chopped
1-2 T Organic Tamari or Nama Shoyu
1/4 Cup organic raw corn (optional)
1 T cumin powder
1 T coriander powder

Process with the "S" blade all of the ingredients. Pulse it till chopped. Spoon the taco filling onto a romaine leaves or collard leaves that have the center rib removed. Drizzle with nacho sauce, top with chopped tomatoes, onion and  shredded lettuce. Enjoy!

1 T Simply Organic brand of chili powder
2 tsp Organic Tamari
