Raw Tacos

Just thought I'd share my recipe for my favorite Raw Dinner ... Raw Tacos.  These are delicious and totally satisfying.  Even if you're not a raw foody!

Raw Taco Meat:
  1 Cup Pecans
  1/2 Cup Sunflower Seeds
  1 1/2 Tsp Cumin
  1 Tsp Chili Powder
  3/4 Tsp Coriander
  2 Tsp Nama Shoyu (you could also use Tamari or Bragg's Liquid Aminos)
  2 shakes of Red Pepper Flakes
  3 TBSP Water
  1/2 Tsp Sea Salt 

Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse several times.  Scrape the sides and pulse some more.  You want it to be well mixed and chopped, but not blended mush.  

Prepare the toppings:

  • Dice red and green pepper (Organic is always best, fresh from your garden or farmer's market is even better)
  • Chopped natural black olives
  • Cilantro 
  • Lime Wedges
  • Homemade Pico de Gallo ~ tomatoes, purple & green onion, lime juice, cilantro, jalapenos, sea salt, onion & garlic powders
  • Homemade Guacamole ~ 2 mashed avocados, lime juice, sea salt, minced garlic, cilantro, purple onion, tomato
  • Crisp, clean romaine leaves
To serve, spoon "meat" into each romaine leaf, top with cilantro leaves, guacamole, diced peppers, olives, pico and a squeeze of lime 

DELICIOUS!  Add a Dos Equis with lime and call it Heaven!  



  1. Yum! I'm going to have to try these. Always looking for new recipes!

  2. Yum again! The pictures sold me! I'm gonna try these too. XOX

  3. Mom ~ If you don't know what Nama Shoyu or Tamari is, they are healthier soy sauces, so if you don't have them and don't have the liquid aminos (I have a sneaky suspicion that you don't), you could use soy sauce in place of all of those. You may want to lessen the amount???

  4. P.S. Love those beautiful dishes you have your salsa & guacamole in! :)

  5. :) We do, too! I've already decided I'm never buying another dish. I'm just going to let you stock my kitchen with random Polish Pottery dishes. :)
