Taco Time

IT'S TACO TIME Who doesn't love a good ol' Mexican fiesta?! Mexican definitely has to be one of my favourite types of food, and these little raw tacos are a top fav. Back in the days when I owned my cafe, these bad boys were a top seller. These raw tacos are a great way to have a nourishing and filling meal that leaves you feeling full but light at the same time. They are quick and easy to make and will be a hit with the whole fam. And I haven't even mentioned the best part yet... the main ingredient is some scraps that you would usually throw in the bin - but also an ingredient that even the keenest of eyes won't be able to recognise. Have I got you intrigued yet? Well keep scrolling because the recipe is right below... RAW TACOS INGREDIENTS Carrot Meat 1½ Cups carrot pulp 1 Tbl Tamari 1 Tbl Olive oil ½ Tbl Lemon Juice 1 tsp Cumin ¼ tsp paprika 1 tsp mixed herbs ¼ tsp salt ¼ cup mixed seeds (Sesame, Pepitas, Sunflower, etc) Tacos Cashew Cheesy Spread Tomato Avocado Cos Lettuce Leaves + any filling additions of your choice DIRECTIONS Mix all Carrot Meat ingredients in a bowl. Wash and chop up all Taco Ingredients (except Cos leaves) Lay out the cos leaves like tacos and fill with all of the above ingredients. So there you have it, a simple but oh so delicious alternative to the usual. It may sound a little weird to some, but trust me, it's amazing! So give it a go and share your creations with me right here, or over at instagram (@balancingbodies) or facebook (www.facebook.com/balancingbodiesforyou). Adios me Amigos, Elise xx
