I love Mexican food and when I came across this fully raw and super-simple taco recipe from Kimberly Snyder, had to give it a try! First thing that attracted me to this recipe is the pure simplicity of this dish and secondly the use of Ayurvedic spices cumin and coriander.According to Kim, this recipe is rich in amino acids, chlorophyll, enzymes, omega 3 fatty acids, magnesium, iron, amino acids, folic acid and lots of other nutrients—it is a total body beauty recipe, meaning it’s great for your hair, skin, eyes, balancing weight and more!
We all know collard greens are not too great to taste but this recipe brings these giant greens to life and they make a perfect wrap for this delicious nut-based meat…YUM!!
Have slightly tweaked the recipe from the original Kim’s. You can find the original recipe on her blog.
Raw Taco Gorilla Wrap
- 1 cup soaked Walnuts
- 1 cup finely shredded Cauliflower
- 3-5 soaked Sun-Dried Tomatoes (for umami flavor)
- 3 tsp Cumin powder
- 2 tsp Coriander powder
- 1/4 tsp Turmeric powder
- 1/2 tsp Cayenne powder
- 2-3 tsp home-made Salsa (have used pineapple-pepper salsa)
- Salt to taste
Add all the ingredients (except the salsa) in a grinder and grind to a coarse consistency. This becomes the filling for the wrap. Take one 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 was pleasantly surprised, how well cumin-coriander spices go well with walnuts. These have become the #1 favorite wraps of all times, for me, and it’s hard to believe they are 100% RAW!
You must give this a try, a great beauty food endorsed recipe to soften your skin and keep it moisturized from within.
