Many of us enjoy tacos but would prefer to maintain our vegan lifestyle. Thankfully there are plenty of recipes out there that are not only vegan-friendly but also gluten free. Today we’ll be taking a look at some Mexican tacos you can make using corn tortillas. Here’s what you’ll need:
- A teaspoon of turmeric
- Three cups of fresh corn kernels
- A teaspoon of salt
- A cup of chopped onions
- ¾ cup of ground golden flax seed meal
- A tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
- A cup of filtered water
- Half a teaspoon of smoked paprika
- Half a cup of sunflower seeds previously soaked for at least two hours
- Half a teaspoon of cumin
- ¾ cup of walnuts, soaked for at least two hours
- Half a teaspoon of sumac
- Half of a large, roughly chopped zucchini
- 1/8 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
- Two tablespoons of fresh parsley
- Half a teaspoon of salt
- Two tablespoons of fresh coriander
- A tablespoon of lime juice
- Fresh parsley
- Six lettuce leaves
- A dozen roughly chopped, sun-dried tomatoes
- One ripe, finely sliced avocado
- Three to four finely sliced radishes
- A grated carrot
Begin by placing all of the ingredients for the tortillas in a food processor and mixing until it’s relatively smooth. If the mixture has a bit of texture, that’s fine. Shape the dough into tortillas and then spread them out in circles on a sheet, making sure they’re as even as possible. Place them in a dehydrator at 105 degrees Fahrenheit for four hours. Once the tortillas are ready, flip them over and remove the sheet. Allow the tortillas to properly dry for at least two hours or more. If the tortillas are soft, pliable, and dry, they’re ready to go.
For the mince, drain and rinse the walnuts and seeds before placing them in a food processor. Make sure they’re properly broken down before adding the rest of the mince ingredients. Once the mixture is thoroughly combined, place the mince in a bowl until it’s time to serve.
To prepare the tacos, use six of the tortillas and the lettuce leaves. Use a heaping tablespoon of the mince to fill the leaves as this will make it easier to keep the taco firm. Follow by adding the parsley, carrot, tomatoes, radish and avocado.
