Raw Walnut “Meat” Tacos

  8 rater(s)

It’s amazing how seasonings can transform ordinary walnuts to taste like zesty, spicy taco meat. When you take a bite that contains some walnut meat, cilantro, tomatoes, lettuce, and the bite of red onion, you’ll think that you’re at a little cleanse-approved cantina!

  • Prep Time: 20m
  • Total Time: 20m


For the Walnut Meat

  • 1 c raw walnuts
  • 2 tsp. coconut aminos
  • 2 tsp. filtered water
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • sea salt and pepper, to taste

For the Tacos

  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1/4 c red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 c romaine lettuce, shredded
  • 1/4 c cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • 6 butter lettuce leaves, to serve


  1. To make the walnut meat, add all of the ingredients to a high-speed blender or food processor and blend until thoroughly mixed and crumbly. Scoop the walnut meat into a bowl and set aside.
  2. After prepping the ingredients for the tacos, place the butter lettuce leaves on a couple plates. Assemble the tacos by placing about one to two tablespoons of the walnut meat in the center of each lettuce leaf.
  3. Place a small amount of the tomato, red onion, romaine, and cilantro, in each taco. Serve with lime wedges and enjoy.
