Who needs ground beef when you can fill your tacos with this delicious lentil walnut meat? I’ve always loved tacos, burritos, and Mexican food in general, but these vegan tacos with lentil walnut meat and homemade cashew sour cream we had the other day seriously blew my mind! A fresh, healthy, and savory filling topped with creamy sour cream all in a crispy portable shell – I mean how much better can life actually get?!
If you want it even healthier, try serving the filling in lettuce shells. Of course the taco lettuce wraps can’t make up for the crispiness of the real taco shells, but it’s still really delicious and just perfect for a healthy snack or a light dinner.
The lentil walnut meat already tastes awesome on its own, but I think it’s even better with sour cream. I just love the combo of this hearty vegan meat alternative (I actually hate using this word as it’s not just a substitute but sooo much better!) and the creaminess and slightly sour taste of cashew sour cream. I also like eating this easy vegan version of sour cream together with potatoes and salad. The recipe really couldn’t be easier. You only need four ingredients (not including salt and pepper): cashews, water, one clove of garlic, and lemon juice. Combine all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. I also used avocado, kidney beans, corn, tomatoes, and some lettuce to fill the taco.
I hope you like Mexican food as much as I do and give these vegan tacos with lentil walnut meat a try! If you do let me know how you liked them. I always love hearing from you guys! :-) Hope you all have a great week!
