Alkaline Tacos


This taco “meat” comes pretty close to the real thing, but it’s packed with live enzymes and alkalizing boosters. You can whip up this super-tasty taco feast in less than thirty minutes, and you’ll get better result with a good processor than with a conventional blender. For a more traditional taco, use non-GMO corn tortillas in place of or wrapped around the romaine. If you go with our romaine, add a bit of shredded lettuce. After devouring a whole batch of the filling, my friend Denise explained; “I want to be buried with this!”

For The Filling

  • 1/2 cup/55g raw walnuts
  • 1/2 cup/70g blanched slivered raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup/45g soaked, drained, and roughly chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/8 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Bragg liquid amino's, wheat-free tamari, or soy sauce, plus more to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon natural salt, plus more to taste
  • 1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley


  1. To make the filling put the walnuts and almond into your high-speed blender or food processor and pulse until broken up.
  2. Add the sun-dried tomatoes, olive oil, spices, liquid amino's, salt and parsley and pulse until the tomatoes are well incorporated and the mixture is “red and meaty” looking.
  3. Tweak flavours to taste (you may want more liquid amino's and salt) and set aside.

Pico De Gallo

To Assemble The Tacos

  3. Repeat with the remaining leaves.
