Taco Tuesday - January recap.

IMG_4248.JPG

So at some point last year I started making tacos every Tuesday. I don't really know how or why but it's a tradition that stuck. Coming into 2015 I decided to up the ante and challenge myself to make 52 weeks of tacos, without repeating a recipe. Given that I'm back to eating a primarily pescetarian diet that heightens the challenge. Here's what I made in January + a recipe. 

Sunflower Meat for Tacos

Ingredients: 

  • 1 cup of raw sunflower seeds, soaked for 2-8 hours 
  • 2 cloves of raw garlic, minced 
  • 1 tablespoon of chili powder 
  • 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup of nutritional yeast
  • sea salt and black pepper, to taste 

Steps: 

  1. Drain the sunflower seeds and retain a little bit (1/3 cup) of the liquid. 
  2. Place the sunflower seeds, garlic and oil in a food processor and pulse until the ingredients start to break up. Add some of the leftover liquid if need be. 
  3. Add the chili powder, nutritional yeast, salt and pepper and continue to pulse until a crumbly mixture forms.

Spoon into taco shells with whatever fix-ins float your boat and enjoy. Makes enough meat to fill about 8 six-inch corn tortillas.
