While nothing beats the real thing, these raw, vegan tacos are pretty damn tasty.

Serves 4

for the tacos:

2 heads romaine lettuce

2 Haas avocados, diced

½ pint cherry tomatoes (1 small pack), cut in half

½ tablespoon dried parsley flakes

pinch ground black pepper

pinch sea salt

1 lime

for the taco “meat”:

2 cups raw walnuts

1 ½ tablespoons ground cumin

1 tablespoon ground coriander

2 tablespoons Balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon coconut aminos

dash paprika

dash garlic powder

dash ground black pepper

1. Thoroughly wash and drain the lettuce leaves and tomatoes in a colander or on a paper towel and set aside while prepping remaining ingredients.

2. Combine all taco ingredients in a food processor.

3. Pulse several times until crumbly, making sure not to over-blend.

4. Spread the walnut taco meat on the romaine leaves in 4 equal servings.

5. Garnish with diced avocado, halved tomatoes, parsley, ground pepper, sea salt, and lime juice.
