I recently came across an awesome recipe for raw vegan tacos over at My New Roots. I seriously am addicted to these tacos now. I think I’ve made this recipe about 5x in the past month – I love them that much. And they’re so easy to make (as long as you have a reliable blender or food processor). Since I’ve become vegan, I try to incorporate as many raw veggies and fruits into my diet as possible. My goal is to make my daily intake 80% veggies and fruit.
Anyway.. I was craving them again last night, as I often do with Mexican, but I ran out of walnuts for the taco ‘meat’. Instead, I added canned Eden Black Beans for extra sustenance. I was looking for a quicker meal so I passed on the ‘sour cream’ as well. The filling is a mix of chopped veggies wrapped in a piece of green lettuce.
Here’s the recipe- serves about 2
Filling (fold ingredients in a large bowl):
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 yellow bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup chopped scallions
2 tomatoes, diced
1/2 can organic black beans, rinsed well
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup cilantro
1 garlic clove, finely minced
1/4 tsp chipotle pepper, or less if you don’t like too much spice
2 tsp cumin
Pinch of sea salt
Wrap a few tablespoons of ingredients in 1 piece of green lettuce, add avocado on top and sprinkle with additional chipotle pepper and/or cumin.
