Walnut Meat

  • 2 cups raw walnuts, chopped
  • 12 oz pack frozen riced cauliflower
  • 1 Tablespoon liquid aminos
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth for onions
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed and drained
  • 1 Tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • salt to taste


  • 1/2 small red onion, finely diced
  • 1/4 red cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1 can corn kernels, drained
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • handful cilantro, chopped
  • flesh of an avocado, sliced


  • juice from a large lime
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • salt to taste


  • 8 corn tortillas or 8 large leafy greens (lettuce or chard)
  • 1/2 cup plant-based sour cream (to serve)
  • fresh lime, cut into wedges (to serve)
  • chopped cilantro to serve


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Roast walnuts for 5 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  2. Increase oven temperature to 475F. Roast cauliflower on a baking sheet for 25-30 minutes.
  3. Add all walnut meat ingredients to the bowl of a food processor and pulse into a crumbly and "meaty" mixture. 
  4. In a medium size pan or skillet, cook onion in vegetable broth over medium-high heat for 3 minutes, add quinoa and garlic, cook another 5 minutes or so stirring frequently until quinoa starts to get toasty and turn slightly golden.
  5. Add remaining broth, tomato paste, and salt, bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes.
  6. When done, remove cover, fluff with a fork, and let set for 15 minutes to absorb the rest of the liquids.
  7. Prepare salad ingredients and whisk together dressing ingredients.
  8. Warm tortillas in a pan for 30 seconds per side.
  9. Fill tortillas with walnut mixture, quinoa, salad, and top with dressing and sour cream! Leftover walnut meat can be stored up to a week in the fridge or up to a month in the freezer.
