Try It Tuesday...Tacos!

walnut tacos
NUTS! Yes, these are walnut tacos and don't snub your nose at them until you try them. I'm a huge fan of mexican food and yoga extraordinaire Kathryn Budig so when she posted her recipe for these I immediately had to make them. Ok...well not immediately but I knew I had to try them in the not so distant future. I made a few minor changes to her recipe to make it my own.
walnut "meat"
1 cup walnuts
1.5 T Bragg liquid amino (soy sauce alternative)
1/4 t garlic powder
1/4 t chili powder
1/4 t paprika
1/4 t cumin
other ingredients
1 lime
nutritional yeast
hot sauce
Place walnut "meat" ingredients in a food processor and pulse a few times to break up the nuts. Voila...there's yo meat. Brown your tortilla's on the stove until they are a touch brown on both sides.  Spread guacamole on your tortilla and add your "meat" and toppings. Dust with nutritional yeast and enjoy!

This recipe makes enough for 4 small tacos and the "meat" is excellent left over. Click here for her full recipe. Just for the record, I am not a vegetarian by any means but do enjoy having meatless options. 


  1. Yum! I'm going to add this to my meal plan next week! Ever since my pregnancy I've had trouble cooking meat (wierd, I know), so I'm always looking for recipes for when my husband can't grill. ;-)

  2. Wow! Looks so delicious! I need to try! Thanks for sharing!
