Today marks the beginning of 31 days of meat free recipes for my “break up with meat” challenge on Instagram! The recipe I’m kicking things off with is a simple yet classic and delicious ground taco beef recipe. 🙂
Hope you enjoy!
1 cup raw almonds
1/3 or 1/4 cup oil – use whatever kind you prefer best
2 – 3 tablespoons soy sauce (depending on flavor) *or* use the same amount with umeboshi plum vinegar if you avoid soy products. 🙂
1 teaspoon chili powder/ ground flakes or 1 fresh chili pepper
3 – 5 cloves fresh peeled garlic or 1 tsp garlic powder (judge amount depending on your love of garlic)
1 – 2 tsp onion powder or 1/4 small raw yellow onion (though any color will do)
1 tsp cumin powder
1/8 tsp or pinch of Himalayan sea salt
1/2 tsp oregano or 1 tbsp fresh herb
1/2 tbsp paprika powder
1. Gather all your ingredients!
2. Put the almonds into the food processor* and pulse until they are ground roughly but evenly.
3. Add the spices and other ingredients.
4. Season as desired until perfect to you!
5. Enjoy! Use a collard green as a tortilla, cashew sour cream, tomatoes chopped and pico de gallo… Yum!
Notes: if you don’t own a food processor, that’s okay! You don’t need one. You can use your blender for the same task. You can also chop (specifically mince) the nuts by hand, grind them with a mortar and pestle, or use other tools to get the desired texture. I am fortunate enough to have a food processor so I chose this method but there are many different ways so make sure you try out the recipe! 😉
Mmm- the final concoction with salsa fresca, green onions chopped and topping the burrito, raw-co meat, and heirloom tomatoes! Yay!
