Raw Tostadas

INGREDIENTS

Walnut Taco Meat*

1½ cups walnuts, soaked overnight and drained
2 Tbsp. nama shoyu (unpasteurized soy sauce)
1½ tsp. cumin
½ tsp. coriander
½ to 1 tsp. chile powder (depending on taste and heat desired)
1 small garlic clove, minced
1 green onion, chopped
1 large handful cilantro

Tostada Shells

3 ears corn, shaved (about 3 cups)
1 yellow pepper, chopped
1 tsp. salt
¾ cup golden flaxseed, ground

Sour Cream

1 cup macadamia nuts or cashews
Juice from ½ lemon
½ tsp. salt

PREPARATION

Walnut Taco Meat

• Pulse the walnuts in the food processor until the desired consistency is almost reached. Ultimately, the walnuts should be crumbly, so make sure not to leave the processor running, and create a paste.
• Add the remaining ingredients and pulse again until the final consistency is reached.

Tostada Shells

• Blend corn, yellow pepper and salt together in a food processor. When thoroughly mixed, add flaxseed and blend until the mixture reaches the consistency of a spreadable dough.
• Spread dough thinly (1/8-inch thick ) onto a dehydrator Teflex sheet, making the tostada rounds.
• Dehydrate for 2 hours at 145 degrees. Flip and dehydrate at 115 degrees for 6 to 8 hours until crisp.

Salsa

• Delicately mix all the ingredients together.

Sour Cream

• Blend all the ingredients together in a food processor or blender until smooth.

Assembly

Spread the sour cream on a tostada,then pile on some walnut taco meat. Top with salsa and garnish with sprouts or shredded lettuce.
