Crispy, Crunchy Tacos

I've made a few versions of tacos since becoming raw and this was by far my favorite. It has all the crunch you get with a standard taco and the flavor combination is spot on.

It came about by mixing and mingling a couple of left over recipes and it turned out to be a match made in raw food heaven!


Rinse and drained Romaine lettuce leaves
chopped tomatoes

Cheddar cheese

1c ground sunflower seeds
1c ground macadamia nuts
1 small red bell pepper
1 small orange, peeled and deseaded
juice of 1 lemon
2 cloves garlic
1tbsp Bragg Liquid Aminos

Mix all ingredients in food processor until creamy.

Carrot filling

2 large carrots shredded
1tsp chili powder
1/4tsp garlic powder
1/4tsp cumin

Mix all carrot ingredients together and set aside.


Anything goes here, but I like to start with a generous amount of carrot. I add pieces of the onion bread down each side like a taco shell. Then spoon the cheese down the middle and top it off with fresh tomato.
