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!
1½ cup raw walnuts, ground in food processor
1½ teaspoon ground cumin
¾ teaspoon ground coriander
2 teaspoon Nama Shoyu or Braggs
Mix and serve.
Thanks Kancace, I can't wait to try this.
hazifanasy: I'd soak walnuts for an hour or two.
New Raw Foodie here. Does any one know how long to soak the walnuts for?
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
this is a terrific recipe! i had it for lunch this afternoon!
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
This is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo good. Must agree with everyone else it is simple and absolutely delicious... had this with guacamole and it tastes really good with arugula too, really stuffing myself tonight!
SIMPLE and AMAZING. Made tacos with this last weekend and me and my man LOVED it! So satisfying. This will be a staple in my recipe collection for sure :)
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!
A great recipe that's already become a regular addition in my household. Trying the additional condiments for the first time tonight.. really can't wait!!
Excellent! These tasted so authentic really between this and your tortillas I was in Mexican heaven.
We love this 5/5!!!
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!
This was delicious! We had it with cashew "sour cream" and also added the garlic, lemon and cilantro. Thanks so much!!
okay.......i'm in awe of raw! i love this!! delicious! thank you:)
I made this and it was great. I've actually made it twice already. It really tastes like taco meat.
I made this today for lunch, it was great. Except, I did not have any raw tortillas. So, I made a salad with kale. I made guacamole and used the guacamole as a sauce. Added some raw corn, then the taco meat. It was delicious!
walnut taco meat? holy guacamole
Yummy! I like this Taco Meat!
I just made this with fresh cilantro instead of coriander seed. I also added a little red onion. It was fabulous! Instead of rolling it in romaine leaves, I just made a taco salad topped with avocado and organic tomatoes (grown by my neighbor). I will probably make some version of this regularly.A+
this is the best meat sub in the world!
Super easy to make. It tastes even better if you can make the "meat" ahead of time. It really allows the flavors to blend. Meat loving, bbqing husband loved these. He said he was very impressed. Big thank you.
Wonderfully simple, yummy & nutritious! Texture reminded me of TVP from my old veggie days, but the taste is so much better. My non-raw friend loved it - I made a burrito with Fajitas (see recipe) in an Ezekiel tortilla.
