Hey, guys, Dr. Axe here. Welcome to another
episode of Maximize Your Kitchen. Today I’m going to be making Spicy Walnut
Tacos. Now, this is a raw recipe so it’s full of enzymes and antioxidants, and it’s great
for your health. It’s a vegetarian dish. The great thing I love about this dish is that
it’s fast, it’s easy and it tastes great. So what we’re going to start off with here
is some raw walnuts. Walnuts are packed with Omega-3 fats. Omega-3 fats help reduce inflammation.
Also, walnuts are a great source of fiber and Vitamin E. So we’re going to go ahead
and start off here. You’re going to need a food processor, a Vitamix, a Blendtec or a
very strong blender to do this recipe. We’re going to start off with one and a half
cups of raw walnuts. We’re going to take them and sprinkle them on here like so, and then
we’ll put in about another half cup like that. So we’ve got our one and a half cups of raw
walnuts here. The next thing we’re going to add in are coconut
aminos. Now you can use Bragg’s Aminos or coconut aminos. This is a soy-free alternative
and this is kind of like your replacement for soy sauce in the recipe. We’re going to
go ahead and add in about two teaspoons of the soy sauce. Let’s find a teaspoon. Here
we go. This is about half a teaspoon so we’re going to put in four of these. Okay. Sometimes
I get a little bit carried away and put a little bit too much in. There we go. That’s
about the equivalent of four teaspoons. Next thing we’re going to add in is some cumin.
We’re going to do about one and a half teaspoons of cumin. I’m going to go ahead and guess
here. One and a half teaspoons. A little bit more cumin is great because it is a powerful
antioxidant and has a lot of good flavor here. Then we’re going to add in some coriander.
We’re going to do about three-fourths of a teaspoon of coriander. A little bit more there.
The last thing we’re going to add in is a little bit of cayenne pepper. Now do not get
carried away with the cayenne here, a little bit goes a long way. Cayenne pepper is actually
pretty amazing. It’s actually loaded with Vitamin C and it actually may even help drop
blood pressure. It’s been shown to help heart disease and fight diabetes. So cayenne is
a great option. It doesn’t take much. I just do a dash there, like so, and that’s kind
of it unless you like it really spicy, then you can add more.
What we’re going to do now is get this thing blended. All right, like so. All right. I’m
going to keep it going here. All right, got this pretty well blended.
What we’re going to do here for the tacos is we’re going to actually use some leaf lettuce
here. You can use romaine. You can use a wider leaf like this. Really, any kind of big leaf
lettuce, the Bibb lettuce, like so. You’re going to go ahead and place that on the plate
here. We’re then going to go ahead and take a spoon and scoop some of this out here onto
the taco. I’ll go ahead and get a bigger scoop here. This recipe, what we like to serve with this
is salsa and guacamole. So if you want to make some homemade guacamole or pick up some
salsa at the grocery store or make your own, both are great. You’ll see here I just kind
of spread it out like so. Okay, and again, there are all kinds of things you can do.
If you want to add in peppers and onions and things like that, you can. This is in general
what it looks like here. You’ll see here our Spicy Walnut Tacos. I love this with guacamole,
it tastes really good. I’ll take a quick bit here. Mmm. Absolutely delicious. You’re going
to love these Spicy Walnut Tacos.
