Raw Taco Gorilla Wraps


Who doesn’t like Mexican food? It’s always been a crowd pleaser. And even meat lovers have told me that this “taco meat” tastes like the ground beef served in regular tacos. This is one of my favorite raw dishes—I love the spices, which really work with the walnuts, a great beauty food to soften your skin and keep it moisturized from within. I’ve made these taco wraps for many of my clients, especially on movie sets when they need something to pick up between takes and don’t have time to sit down and eat.

  1. Put the walnuts in a food processor with the blade in place, and process until chunky. Scrape the ground nuts into a bowl, and mix in the cumin, coriander, chili powder, and cayenne. Add the tamari and mix again. Take a collard green with the dark edge facing down on your cutting board. Trim off the stem and up about two inches into the leaf. Place about ¼–1/3 cup of the nut meat mixture in the middle of the leaf. Top with some salsa. To assemble, roll up burrito style. Fold one of the long ends in, and then both the end pieces, and then the other long way, tucking in firmly. Place with the folded edge down on your cutting board, and slice firmly into two pieces on the diagonal.

    I make that recipe a lot, at least once every two weeks, and eat the “meat” in different ways!!! But I have a question: do I have to soak the nuts? And if so, for how long?

    As a carnivore, and someone of Mexican decent. These are SO good! don’t hesitate making these. I replaced the collard leaf with a romaine leaf, its easier to chew and has a lighter taste. So yummy!

    I am going to soak the walnuts.

    I thought that protein should be saved for dinner time so I’m confused why this is suggested as a lunch option ?
