A copycat of the amazing tacos I had the other day at the vegan restaurant, paired with cabbage salad and stiff margaritas, this was a legit Mexican feast.

It was a team effort in the kitchen for this meal with Ali on margarita duty, mum chopping and me bossing.

Ground round:

-11/2 cups walnuts
-1 tsp chilli powder
-1 tsp cumin
-salt and pepper
-2 TBS water

Pulse in a food processor until combined but still chunky.

Macadamia/Cashew cream:

-1 cup combo of mac. / Cash. Nuts
-10 TBS water
-1 lemon squeezed
-salt

Blend until smooth

Salsaaaaaa:

-2 cups baby tomatoes (or regular chopped)
-1 bunch coriander
-1/2 purple onion finely chopped
-1/2 red capsicum finely chopped
-salt, pepper, cumin, chilli flakes to taste

Blend the tomats and coriander until combined but still a bit chunkay. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir. Adjust for preferred spice levels.

Guacamole:

-2 Avos mashed
-2 green onions chopped
-1 lemon squeezed
-1 lime squeezed
– dash of cayenne pepper
– dash of paprika
-salt/ pepper

Layer all your toppings in a big lettuce leaf and you’re good to go! (preferably with a fresh margarita to wash it down).

The lettuce is so much fresher then a regular taco shell or tortilla and it really brings out the flavours of all the other ingredients. Highly recommended!
