Viva Mexicana Raw Style!
When I started alleviating wheat, grains, soy, dairy, legumes, peanuts, processed sugar and alcohol from my life — I needed to find recipes that would include the foods I could eat and that would be tasty and satisfying. I know it sounds like giving up those 8 types of food, there’s ABSOLUTELY NOTHING left to eat; but believe me . . . there definitely is. I also needed recipes that the whole family would enjoy and that I could package up and bring to work for lunch (or school).
One of the first recipes I tried was Diana Stobo’s Taco’s. I was so afraid to prepare this. Anything new is intimidating and preparing “uncooked” foods with ingredients that you’re not used to can be challenging. When I checked her recipes, I found that I had most of the ingredients, plus I had the main kitchen tool which was a food processor. Thank goodness an aunt of mine bought this for me 27 years ago as an “engagement” gift. I probably used it a handful of times in the 27 years since. Within the past year, however, I use it a couple of times per week.
I like to get a different “spin” on recipes, so eventhough I have my “go-to” recipes — I like to see if anyone is doing it a little differently. It’s nice to spice things up once in a while. Here’s a recipe from Sarah Britton. She has a Blog called My New Roots . She also includes a recipe for a Cashew Sour Cream and Salsa on the same page. Make all three — have a feast!!!!
If you want to get adventurous (and I have NOT attempted these yet), I am including a recipe for RAW Taco Shells from Goddess In the Raw! I plan on “attempting” to make these probably after the Holidays. Keep in mind, you do need a food dehydrator which most people do not have. I would not run out and buy one just for this recipe. You can probably attempt to do this on the lowest setting of your oven and keeping the oven door ajar OR, I have found that my Convection Toaster Oven has a “dehydrator” setting. I haven’t tried that yet. Also as a side-note, I bought my dehydrator at a Garage Sale for practically nothing. I bought a bunch of stuff for about $25, so I would say my dehydrator cost less than $5.
Try making Taco’s for yourself! It’s really easy, delicious and filling!
Whichever recipe you choose to try (and you may have your own or search for another RAW Taco Recipe on the Internet) the most important thing is that you
