Raw Vegan Walnut Meat Tacos And Chili Dogs
At first I just titled this post raw taco meat, but then I realized that sounded really disturbing. When I throw the “walnut” in there, most of you know what I’m talking about. I’ve seen “walnut taco meat” on a few blogs, but had never tried it. I have to say, since joining the vegan blogging community, I’ve learned about a lot of neat uses for nuts; I would have never known about creamy nut desserts, dips, and sauces or probably would have skipped them in cookbooks if it weren’t for your blogs!
The walnut taco meat turned out to be delicious! And it was so quick; this meal took me about 5 minutes to prepare. The best part was, the only thing to clean up from prep was the food processor or Vita-Mix. I used this recipe from Gone Raw, corn tortillas, cooked navy beans, spinach, and salsa. The texture and flavor were great, and they were very filling. Of course, if you wanted to keep them raw, you would want to use lettuce leaves rather than corn tortillas and nix the cooked beans.
For dinner, I held on to summer one last time with these veggie dogs from the bottom of my freezer. I made chili dogs, which would have been better as chili cheese dogs, but I was out of vegan cheese. I don’t know; they just didn’t do anything for me this time. Maybe summer really is over! I actually ended up passing off the “dog” and eating chili in a bun. Now, that was yummy!
I know I tend to unrawify them with my additions, but what are some of your favorite raw nut recipes?
