Raw Vegan Mock Tuna Salad & Taco Meat Recipes

For the salad:
3 cups soaked raw sunflower seeds (2-4 hours, drain and dry) ground in food processor ( vita mix at low speed using tamper)
3 to 4 stalks celery, diced
1/2 bunch scallions, diced
2 tablespoons dulse flakes
1/4 cup dried dill

In large bowl combine all salad ingredients mix thoroughly.

For the dressing:
1 1/2 cups Thai coconut water
6 cloves of garlic, peeled
1 cup fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon sea salt
2 1/2 cups raw macadamia nuts, cashews, pine nuts, or a combination ( I use cashews only)
1/2 cup stone-ground mustard

In your Vita Mix, mix all dressing ingredients until smooth, pour over salad and toss to mix well. Enjoy! This will keep for a week in the refrigerator for over a week.

To make a mock chicken salad replace dulse flakes and dried dill with 2 tablespoons each of dried thyme, oregano, and sage.

Taco Meat

2 cups soaked walnuts, strain and discard water (soak for 4 hours)
1 tbsp cumin powder
1 tbsp coriander powder
1 tbsp Nama Shoyu (raw soy sauce)

In Vita Mix or food processor blend ingredients until it looks like ground beef (about 15 seconds). Enjoy in a romaine lettuce leaf with salsa and guacamole for raw tacos, stuffed in bell peppers or scoop some on your salad.
