Posted in Recipes by karoumy on May 4, 2009

Here is a simple recipe for almost raw vegan tacos. I cheated and used cooked taco shells. When I find a recipe for raw taco shells I will update this recipe.

For the taco filling

From (with some changes):


  • 2 cups of walnuts
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Cumin powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon Coriander
  • 2 tablespoons Bragg’s
  • pinch of cayenne
  • a little olive oil


  • Blend the ingredients in a blender or food processor.

For the “sour cream”

From (with some changes)::


  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • juice of 1 small lemon
  • 1/4 cup cold water


  • Cover cashews with water & soak for an hour or more.
  • Drain water and place nuts in food processor or blender.
  • Add water, salt, vinegar & lemon juice.
  • Puree for 3-4 mins or until completely smooth & creamy in consistency.



  • 2 avocados
  • 1 clove crushed garlic
  • juice of 1 lime


  • Scoop out the avocados in a bowl.
  • Add lime juice and crushed garlic.
  • Use a fork to mash up the ingredients.



  • 2 tomatoes
  • a small bunch of cilantro
  • 1/4 of  a red onion


  • Dice tomatoes and add to a bowl.
  • Remove the stems from the cilantro and chop. Add to the tomatoes.
  • Dice the onions and add to the bowl.

Taco Shells

I used the taco shells from Food for Life.

Put it all together and enjoy!
