Yes, I’ll admit that the ingredient list for this recipe seems rather long, but trust me, it’s worth it. Everything comes together surprisingly fast and if you’re really pressed for time, just make what you can (the salsa recipe is on the next page). The important thing to try here is the Walnut Taco Mix, because even if you don’t get around to the other stuff, you will be blown away by how tasty and satisfying it is.
Walnut Taco Mix
1 cup raw walnuts
1 Tbsp. nama shoyu (raw, unpasteurized soy sauce)
1/8 tsp. ground chipotle pepper (or more if you like it spicy!)
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
1. Put all ingredients in a food processor and pulse just to mix. Don’t over-blend, or you will end up with walnut butter!
Cashew “Sour Cream”
½ cup raw cashews
juice of ½ lemon
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
5 Tbsp. water (approx.)
1. Put all ingredients except water in a high speed blender or food processor and blend, adding water one tablespoon at a time until the desired consistency is reached. If you want a thick cream, use less water, for a thinner sauce, use more. (You will not achieve a perfectly smooth sauce with a food processor, but it is still delicious!)
