I was really in the mood for Mexican food lately so I got my creative juices flowing and came up with a ground “meat” that you can use in Lettuce wraps, tacos, nachos, or get creative like I did below with the cucumber appetizers.
1 c. pumpkin seeds (soaked overnight or at least 4 hours)
1 c. brazil nuts (soaked overnight or at least 4 hours)
1/2 onion (chopped)
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp. chipotle pepper fakes
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 Tbs. Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
2 Tbs lemon juice
2 Tbs. tomato paste (omit if you want to keep it raw)
1/8 tsp garlic pwdr or 1 garlic clove
Grind the soaked nuts and seeds in the food processor until it has the texture of ground meat. Transfer it to a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients. Mix it well and use it as is or place in a dehydrator for an hour or two to marinade and blend the flavors together.
I also have dehydrated it all the way 6-8 hours til crunchy for longer storage or to eat as a snack.
