Real Food Rehab

No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!

Hi Everyone: I'm new and my name is Sandra Weaver. I have never met anyone who didn't like this recipe. I hope you do too. It's healthy, easy, fast and it keeps well in the refrigerator. Nice combo.

Raw Vegan Taco Meat

3-4 cups of mostly pecans and walnuts. You can add brazil nuts of other nuts and seeds if you like instead

2-4 raw garlic cloves (to taste)

3 tbsp. Chili Powder (to taste)

1/4 tsp. Chipotle (to taste)

Cayenne (optional)

Bragg's aminos (to taste)

Place all the ingredients except the aminos in a food processor and blend to a ground meat consistency. Next add the aminos and blend again. It will clump together, but will look like meat. 

For the most nutrition and ease on the stomach, soak the nuts and seeds overnight and dehydrate before using. I always have plenty of soaked and dehydrated nuts on hand for these a quick meal.

Next make condiments of chopped onions, peppers, cilantro or parsley, graded carrot, red cabbage, sprouts, graded zucchini (for cheese) or whatever other additions you would like to make. Put some nut meat inside of a Romaine leaf, add your condiments and enjoy. Or, you can make a taco salad by simply sprinkling the nut meat on top. Enjoy!

sounds good. I don't know what Chipotle is but I'll look for it. I've been looking for transitional recipes. I can think of many ways to use your "meat" recipe. Thanks

Welcome Sandra! I am so excited about this recipe. Could you say a bit more about dehydrating the nuts and seeds please? How long are they in the dehydrator after soaking and what about storage and shelf life? Your web site will be so helpful to me. I was absolutely fascinated by the content under Oil Pulling. This was new for me. Thank you so much.

P.S. Would you mind "friending" me so I can track your posts. Again, thank you!

Since I didn't know what a Chipotle is I looked it up This is all I could find.

"Chipotal is not actually a name for any particular pepper, but it applies to a smoking process to dry them. Usually mature jalapenos are selected to be smoked-dried, making them significantly hotter than the immature green pepper. Chipotals enhance and impart a wonderful smoky flavor." I got a jalapeno and hope it works.

And, how important is it to dehydrated the nuts after soaking? I was wanting to make it for tonight. Thanks again

Hi Kathleen;  If you have children, they will love it. Chipotle is a hot pepper powder. I get it in the bulk section of my local Organic Grocery Store, but you should be able to get it at any grocery store. If you can't find it, use cayenne.

Hi Joni:  I soak the nuts overnight, rinse them in a colander, then spread them on the dehydrator sheets and dry them for one or two days on about 108 degrees. I do a lot so I don't have to do it often. The nuts actually taste much better after and are more crunchy. After the first day, check them to see if they are dry enough and the consistency you like. Bigger nuts take longer. (2 days), smaller ones less.

That's it. You can get it at a grocery store in the spice section. Chili powder already has some, but I just like more. If you can't find it use cayenne. It doesn't have the smokie taste, but will give it a kick.

Thanks for getting back to me. I wish our town had an  Organic Grocery Store but we don't. I looked at Walmart and they don't have a bulk section. They do have a hot sauce that has Chipotal in it. Maybe I'll get it one day but for now I'll  use cayenne since I have it.

And since I don't have a dehydrated I guess I had better not soak the nuts.

Kathleen, you could dry them on the lowest setting in your oven, which will not keep them raw, but will dry them. If you keep the door opened part way it should be fine. A dehydrator is important on a raw food diet. I have an Excaliber. Also a good blender (Vitamix) and a food processor (Cuisinart).

I hate to bather you again but cant I just let the nuts dry in the air?

Hi Kathleen:  You know I was going to suggest it. It should be a sunny day and the warmer the better. I used to put a piece of clean screen like you have on a window over the top and put the nuts or whatever into a long casserole or something and wrap the screen under it to keep bugs out and just put it in the sun all day. It will probably take about three or four days for nuts at this time of year, but you'll know when you bit into one. You should bring the nuts into the refrigerator at night. It should be crunchier than before you soaked them. Another option is to put them in the car, crack all the windows and put the car in the sun. I used to put stuff on the dashboard of the car and it dried beautifully. Hope it works for you.

RAW TACO'S ARE AMAZING....adding a little CUMIN powder...is my secret weapon to raw taco's...oh the flavor can not be beat!!

Sounds good to me.
