Vegan Taco Nut Meat Recipe
About five years ago I worked in a Raw Vegan Cafe. One of the things I learned to cook while I worked there was Taco Nut Meat.
It also happened to be my favorite thing!
What I liked about it best was that it was close to "regular" taco meat, but only better. This is not only 100% vegan it is 100% RAW vegan.
Not all soy sauces, olive oil and spices are considered raw. You would want to make sure the one you are using is raw if you are on a raw diet.
Here is an example of a raw soy sauce: OHSAWA Nama Shoyu Sauce

It is delicious in a lettuce wrap (as pictured), on a salad or pretty much anywhere!
This can be stored for up to one week but typically does not last that long.
This is a basic recipe, feel free to add other vegetables to it if it gets too thick just add a bit of water!
