Taco shells
  • 1 small savoy cabbage
  • 4 heirloom tomatoes
  • 2 cobs of corn
  • 1 cup packed basil leaves
  • 2 limes
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Nut Meat
  • 1/3 cup pecans
  • 1/3 cup sunflower seeds
  • 3/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon or more chili powder, if desired
  • 1 teaspoon tamari


  1. Tear off the cabbage leaves gently: instant taco shells.
  2. To make the salsa: chop the tomatoes as roughly or finely as you like. Slice the corn off the cob. Mince the basil and juice the lime. Throw everything together, including the pepper. It should taste really yummy.
  3. To make the nut meat: finely chop the nuts and seeds then toss in the tamari and spices. Nom. Fill your taco shells with the salsa and nut meat. Enjoy.


ADAPTIONS: use lettuce instead of cabbage; any seeds or nuts instead of pecans and sunflower seeds; soy sauce, coconut amino or Bragg's instead of tamari; any veg you like instead of tomatoes and corn.
