"RAW" Taco Salad

I found this yummy recipe here

I am always looking for new yummy recipes and when I found this one I just had to try it out!  This was a hit with the family!  We all enjoyed it.  The kids liked the nut(meat) mixture scooped into lettuce leaves drizzled with the cashew cream.  I made up a huge garden salad and added the nut(meat) mixture to the top, also drizzled with cashew cream.  It was so filling and yummy!  Another "RAW" recipe our family will make again and again!

Taco Mixture - Process 1 cup of sunflower seeds (soaked for 1 hour), 1/2 cup of cashews, 1 clove of garlic, 2 tablespoons of onions, 2 tablespoons of cumin, 1 tablespoon of cajun seasoning, a dash of sea salt. 

Cashew Sour Cream 
In a food processor or high powered blender 1 cup cashews (soaked), 1 cup water, 2 tbsp lemon juice, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp onion powder.  Blend until the ingredients are a thick and smooth cream (add more water if needed) it should look like sour cream.

I LOVE raw tacos, but usually make them with walnuts as the base. This may be an interesting (and cheaper) alternative. :)

What an interesting idea...the "meat" mixture sounds tasty. Love the cashew sour cream too. Nice healthy dish after the big holiday meals.

A creative idea. Sounds so delicious and a healthy option. I would love this for a new lunch idea. Hopefully Santa will bring my food processor so I can whip this up!
