Have you ever met a raw foodist?
I don’t get it…
I do get that it can be fun sometimes though! Like veganism. It forces creativity, which I love. Also, I love bacon.
A raw vegan taco seems strange, but this was so good it even surprised me. You could go all raw if you took the time to marinate the mushrooms and omitted the lentils. I’m not that patient.
While it didn’t include bacon, I barely missed the meat in this vegan taco salad creation. Sautéing the mushrooms with aminos gave it a delicious saltiness the was reminiscent of meat. Plus, anything you top with guac is a win.
I also love having a texture contrast with the crunchy raw bell peppers. A bite of that with the creamy guacamole and juicy tomatoes was a fiesta in my mouth. #twss
On the side I had some dehydrated kale chips, courtesy of Whole foods. Gotta have chips with my guac!
