Raw Vegan Tostada With Raw Taco Meat

We have several recipes for raw tacos on our website, but we wanted to change it up a bit. These raw tostadas are full of bold flavors that all complement each other. You’ll need extra romaine lettuce leaves to serve as the taco shells.


Note: In the picture, you’ll notice that the tostada is on a tortilla, but tortillas are not cleanse-approved so don’t eat them! Use the lettuce leaves!

  • Prep Time: 15m
  • Total Time: 15m


For the Taco Meat

  • 1 1/2 c raw walnuts, ground in a food processor
  • 1 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 3/4 tsp. ground coriander
  • 2 tbsp. liquid aminos

For the Toppings

For the Cashew Cheese

  • 1/4 c freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 c liquid aminos

  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 1/4 c raw cashews, soaked for 2 hours

  1. Add the ground walnuts to a small mixing bowl and stir in the cumin, chili powder, coriander, and liquid aminos. Set aside once it is thoroughly mixed.
  2. Combine all of the cashew cheese ingredients in a food processor and blend until you get a smooth consistency.
