WALNUT TACOS

Dear Diary,

walnut taco SFG Diary

Week 2 in NY… and all I’m craving is some california-grown avocados!  For some SFG inspiration this week, I asked my brother what he would like me to cook for him, and fortunately he said, “any kind of tacos.”  The challenge was gladly accepted, and after Beyonce’s advertisement (oops, I mean, BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!) on GMA this past week, I decided to follow her lead, and stick to a vegan dish… and I have to say, this dish was surprisingly AMAZING.  Who knew Walnut Meat(less) Tacos could be good!? I hadn’t even heard of walnut tacos before this week– but the walnuts completely disguise themselves with taco meat flavor, and pairing it with a simple acidic purple cabbage “slaw”, makes this a winning summer dish!  Don’t believe me?  Try it for yourself ;)

HERE’S WHAT YOU DO

for the meat: combine all ingredients in a food processor until combined (a little coarse in texture)

For the slaw:  chop all ingredients and let sit at room temperature for at least 20 minutes before serving to allow all the ingredients to marry

place all ingredients on a slightly toasted (in broiler) whole wheat tortilla and enjoy!
