I LOVE Mexican food, it is definitely one of my favorites, so when I was given the chance to chow down on some raw, vegan tacos I was so excited! My awesome, new place of work was having a taco potluck to celebrate the start of summer and I was so excited to make a vegan dish for everyone! I was going to bring in only a couple of items but could not help myself; I ended up making a whole spread!
I had so much fun making these recipes and seeing all the components come together. The taco nut meat is so ridiculously yummy you could also use it as a salad topper. Not to be biased, but I also make the best guacamole! I make it so often it has become a staple in my house; i will eat it as a quick snack with a bunch of veggies when I’m being lazy or serve it with raw crackers.
These raw vegan tacos are perfect if you are new to raw food and they are a much healthier alternative to the real thing. They are bursting with flavor and so satisfying you will not walk away hungry. Even though these seem like a lot of work, they are really not and I had everything ready in a 1/2 hour.
Sure enough these were a BIG HIT at work and everyone was asking me for the recipe so I couldn’t wait to post it on my blog! Enjoy this amazing Mexican feast I know you will enjoy these tacos as much as my co-workers and I did.
