Zippy Veggie Wraps With Taco Nut "Meat"

I love being able to take an SAD (Standard American Diet) meal that W enjoys and turn it into a RAW recipe that he absolutely loves! Woohoo! Success tonight! We both feel soooo much more energized after eating live food than we ever felt with cooked food. No more heavy, full feeling after meals. I used variations from 3 different recipes for this delicious dish. You have to let the veggies marinate ahead of time, but the recipes are all super quick and easy to prepare!

For the Spicy Taco "Meat" 
(serves 2) 
1/4 C almonds
1/4 C walnuts 
1/2 Tbsp ground cumin 
1/2 Tbsp ground coriander 
1/4 tsp parsley 
2 1/2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil 
pinch of sea salt to taste 
1/2 tsp Nama Shoyu
Dash of cayenne pepper. 

  1. Process almonds and walnuts into a powder.
  2. Place nut meal into a mixing bowl. 
  3. Add everything else and mix well.  
  4. This will keep 4 days in the fridge.
  5. You could double this recipe, but I found this enough for 2 without too much leftover.
Veggie Marinade
3 Tablespoons Nama Shoyu
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1 teaspoon coriander   
1/8 teaspoon  cayenne powder

2 red bell pepper
1/2 orange bell pepper
1/2 yellow bell pepper  
1 zucchini, sliced thin
1 small red onion
1 scallion, finely chopped
1 cup mushrooms, sliced

1. Combine marinade ingredients  in bowl.

2. Add thinly sliced/chopped veggies

3. Marinate for several hours (optional: after marinating one hour, spread on dehydrator tray and dehydrate for 2 hours)

4. Serve over collard greens, kelp or zucchini noodles, or taco shells.

1-2 tomatoes, chopped
1/2 of green and red pepper, cut into chunks
1/2 red onion sliced
1 clove garlic
1/4  c  parsley (optional)
Handful of  cilantro
1 tsp lime juice
1 tsp  cumin
Pinch of sea salt
Jalapeno to taste
  1. In a food processor, pulse ingredients (using short quick pulses) into small pieces. Do not puree! 
Serve: Spread Spicy Taco "Meat" and marinated veggies, and top with  Salsa on romaine lettuce leaves, soft taco shells, or spiralized zucchini. Enjoy!
