I feel so honored that such a great cook as my mother had gone absolutely mad with my vegan version of tacos…
I love the blend of tastes you get from this recipe combining the 6 flavors in ayurveda but also I love that people don’t even have an idea that they are not eating meat in this tacos.
3 medium size potatoes
A handful of walnuts and a handful of almonds without peeling.
Salt (to your liking)
1 cup of oatmeal (non sugar)
1/2 cup of wheat bran
1 clove of garlic
Wash and peel the potatoes, cut them in pieces and boil them with the sliced garlic.
While they boil, slice the onion into cubes, the cilantro, the walnuts and the almonds and reserve.
When the potatoes are done, dispose of the water excess and mash them.
Then add a little salt along with the sliced onion, cilantro, walnuts and almonds, add the oatmeal and the wheat bran.
Mix it all together. And finally add a little of condiment sauce (here in mexico it’s called maggi sauce) it’s a seasoning sauce made out of soy and it looks a lot like soy sauce, just saltier.
You can serve the preparation as “hamburger” or dumplings, you can give it shapes and cook it, fried in a pan.
Or you can just have it raw. For the tacos I decided to serve it raw on a blue crispy heated tortilla and top it with alfalfa and broccoli sprouts and a slice of avocado.
To go with them, a green salsa with fresh cilantro, or xni-pec salsa.
This vegan tacos are great for every dietary lifestyle and they are also good for every body type.
They are light, easy to digest and a very balanced meal since they incorporate all of the 6 tastes in ayurveda.
Sweet, Sour, Salty, Pungent Bitter and Astringent. Each of the tastes has a specific body function and since the recipe has them balanced, Vata-Pitta-Kapha mind-body constitutions can indulge freely.
