- Lettuce Wraps:
- 6-8 Lettuce cups (romaine or butter lettuce)
- 1 red bell pepper, diced
- 2 green onions, diced
- handful of cilantro, finely chopped
- avocado, diced (or option to make guacamole)
- 1 lime, quartered
- Walnut Taco “Meat”
- 1 cup raw walnuts
- 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp cumin
- 1 tbsp onion powder
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- ½ tbsp cayenne
- salt & pepper to taste
- For Lettuce Wraps:
a. Rinse lettuce and separate leaves for lettuce “cups.”
b. Add red bell pepper, green onions, cilantro and avocado into small, separate bowls.
c. Fill cups with scoop of walnut “meat”, and top with bell pepper, onions, cilantro and avocado.
Squeeze lime juice on top and enjoy.
d. Option to make your own salsa or top with your favorite brand of salsa.
- For Walnut Taco Meat:
a. Add all ingredients (except salt & pepper) to food processor and blend. “Taco meat” should come out a bit chunky, looking like ground beef.
b. Add salt and pepper to taste.
If you do not have a food processor and are using a blender, you may have to add a bit more liquid – option to add more olive oil or a few tbsp of coconut water. The consistency will be a bit more creamy this way.
