Most of us were not taught the importance of enzymes in our food and how cooking destroys them. Whenever you cook anything above 118, you lose the enzymes and much of the vitamins too. Combine this with the general sadness of our air, water and soil and you have a tsunami of dietary deficiencies. We no longer rotate our crops, let the soil rest nor do we generally replenish our soils with all the minerals truly needed. This causes us to be hungry and consumer empty calories in search of the needs of our body. So my suggestion here for this recipe is to dehydrate your walnuts on low temp for day until they are nice and crunchy. You can still stick them in a 400 oven for 10 minutes or so too. But I hope I have inspired you to take the slow way.
Walnut Tacos – I love these for the texture, the flavor and colour as it does indeed resemble the typical ground meat you would locate inside your taco shell.
Take a couple of cups of dehydrated walnuts and process them in a food processor until they resemble ground meat. Set them aside. Now take a skillet and saute your (on low heat) everything else you normally like in your taco, such as onion, garlic, mushrooms, tomato or salsa. Add in your walnuts at the last minute to mix it all together and just warm them a bit and serve.
You can add some vegan cheese on top if you like but they are tasty just with some chopped onion and lettuce over the taco mixture.
