Raw Tacos

I could live off these for the rest of my life. They are that delicious.

Complements: www.mynewroots.blogspot.com

Walnut Taco Mix:
1 cup raw walnuts
1 tablespoon tamari (soy sauce)
1/8 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper (optional, but I highly recommend it)
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil

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"
1/2 cup raw cashews
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
5 tablespoons water (approx.)

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.

Raw Salsa:
1 cup chopped organic cherry tomatoes
1/2 organic red bell pepper, chopped fine
1/2 organic orange or yellow bell pepper, chopped fine
1/2 organic red onion or 4 organic green onions, minced
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1/2 clove garlic, minced
juice of 1/2 lime (about 1-2 tablespoons)
1 teaspoon raw honey
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
pinch of sea salt

Whisk the garlic, lime juice, honey, olive oil and sea salt in the bottom of a bowl and set aside. Cut up the veggies into rather small pieces, chop the cilantro and add everything to the dressing bowl. Fold to combine and let sit for at least 10 minutes to allow the flavours to meld.

Other Raw Taco elements:
ripe avocado, cabbage, collard, kale, romaine or spinach leaves

Place all the prepared items out on the table. Start with a large lettuce leaf and layer in the walnut taco mix, cashew "sour cream", raw salsa and anything else you have included. Wrap up the taco and enjoy!!
