Tired of the same old, same old? Looking to try something new for dinner this week??
I’ve got a super quick, super tasty, and super nutritious new dish for you to try!
We love making tacos/fajitas for a quick week day meal, but after a while of making them the same way, we start brainstorming ways to mix it up a bit. I found this recipe recently when looking for a creative plant-based protein recipe at work. I had never thought of using chopped nuts as a sort of taco meat alternative, so I had to give this a try! We made this yesterday and it was delicious!!
5 Minute Taco “Meat”
1/2 cup cashews
1/2 cup almonds or walnuts
1/3 cup sun dried tomatoes (packed in oil)
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp cumin
pinch of red pepper flakes
2-4 tbsp olive oil
Put all ingredients into a food processor (we used a Magic Bullet). Pulse until you get desired consistency. Add more oil if it looks too dry. Do not over process or it will be a paste! The flavor is best once it sits a bit.
We added this to our fajitas and it was fantastic mixed in with all the other flavors. Next, we’re going to try it on top of nachos.
Now it’s your turn. How are you going to (or did you) use this?!
In Joyful Surrender,
