Vegan MoFo: Raw Tacos!



My first encounter with a raw taco was at Vida Vegan Con 2011 - who had ever heard of raw taco meat?! Well I became a believer upon my first bite of the savory blend of walnuts and spices enveloped in a crisp lettuce wrap... To re-experience this tasty memory I made fixins for raw tacos this past weekend and have been enjoying them for lunch every day!




The combination of the salty/spicy walnut "meat" with the sweet and tart onion salsa and the creamy guacamole is absolutely divine. These babies don't need anything else to please your taste buds.




For a quicker assembly during the week I have been making raw taco salads - delicious! I highly recommend trying this dish and getting creative.




What's your favorite raw meal?

Your tacos look really delicious! I loved that walnut taco meat as well. My go-to raw meal is zucchini noodles with marinara, the recipe from Practically Raw is really outstanding.
