almost raw lime cumin avocado tacos + Liebster!


Pin It

avocados and i have been bff's lately, i cannot get enough of her
she tops my burgers, sandwiches , is even eaten straight up by the spoonful or slice

however, my little addiction, the ultimate way to enjoy avocados
at least in my opinion - is via almost raw tacos

fresh, filling & healthy
tacos that won't leave you wanting to unbutton your jeans
but will leave you wanting just one more bite

these simple ingredients pack a powerful punch of flavor
**KApoW**- see that punch, powerful wasn't it

sweet mini peppers, heirloom cherry tomatoes, avocado, lime juice, cumin and salt
that's all- see simple
i bet you have all the ingredients at home to make these right this very minute

all the ingredients are chopped, sliced and diced
then mixed in a pretty bowl with lime juice, cumin and salt
this is really good all on its own
the tacos however are my favorite way to enjoy this mix

on a side note check out my new coconut bowls from bambu; no two are the same, i am loving the color!
i have been waiting forever for these to go on sale at sunflower; every time i was in the store i would walk by, admire the bowl, double check the price and quickly set it down...$16.99 per bowl was a bit much for me
this Saturday however (yes i was in my gym clothes) i went to go visit my bowls and guess what; $7.99; yep that meant i could get two; so that was my excitement on Saturday

back to the tacos; you could totally make these raw by using a collard green or butter lettuce
as the "taco shell"
i opted to use food for life sprouted tortillas; they are organic and heated at only 250*
they are so super good for you & tasty
for additional added goodness i like to top my almost raw tacos with sprouts

polishing off three of these is nothing for me
i am convinced i could eat another 3 if i lacked any self control

feel free to add a bit of heat with cayenne or chili pepper
the cumin is perfect for me, i love its smoky taste

has anyone experimented with "raw taco meat" made with walnuts
if so, is there a way to make it without a dehydrator?
i would love to hear about your experience!

  2. I found your site looking for a chipotle sweet potato soup recipe..so thanks for that. I have made raw taco meat by soaking 2 cups walnuts for an hour or so in water then rinse & drain. Toss them in a food processor with 2 cloves of garlic 1/2 tsp each of paprika, cumin and sea salt. Pulse in the processor until it is the consistency you want. Pretty tasty. You can obviously adjust the seasonings to your liking add some cayenne if you like it spicy etc.
