Delicious Raw Tacos (or "Rawcos") are easy to make and a great, healthy alternative to traditional tacos. All of the ingredients are vegan, gluten-free and completely raw. Nothing is cooked.
You Will Need:
Raw Sunflower Seeds
Bell Peppers (Green, Yellow, Orange & Red)
Optional: Corn, Cucumber or other vegetables
Step 1: Soak Cashews
To make the sauce for your Rawcos you will need to soak the cashews overnight. Place them in a glass container, cover with water and then wait for them to swell up and soften.
Step 2: Make Sauce
Once you have soaked your cashews you next have to blend them until smooth.
For about 1 and 1/2 cup cashews you will need 4-6 tablespoons of water.
Once blended add a handful of chopped tomatoes and chili peppers.
One chili pepper will make a mildly spicy sauce, two will make it medium and four will make it hot.
Add a dash of Spectacular Taco Spice or just pinch of cumin for added flavour.
Step 3: Mix Filling
Chop up your veggies (bell peppers, red onion, celery, etc) and then add and mix in some walnuts and sunflower seeds. Finish it off with a dollop of the creamy, spicy taco sauce you made earlier and mix.
Step 4: Serve Tacos
Spoon the filling into romaine hearts or leaves, then hold in your hand and eat like you would a regular taco. Yum!
