For the Chorizo “meat:”
  • ¼ cup Walnuts
  • ¼ cup Pecans
  • ¼ cup Pumpkin Seeds
  • 1½ Tablespoons guajillo chili paste (if you don't want to make the chili pasta, you can use store bought chili paste instead)

For the Raw Vegan Sour Cream

For the Kiwi Salsa
  • 2 kiwis, peeled and chopped
  • 1 Heirloom tomato
  • juice of one lime
  • salt to taste
  • ¼ red onion, minced
  • ½ bunch cilantro, chopped
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and minced
For the guacamole:
  • 2 avocados
  • juice of ½ lime
  • ¼ red onion minced
  • salt to taste
  • chopped cilantro to taste
For the guajillo paste
  1. Blend ingredients well in the blender.
For the walnut chorizo
  1. Pulse the walnuts and pumpkinseeds together in the for processor until they are crumbly but not powdery. Put nut/ seed mixture into a mixing bowl and mix the rest of the ingredients by hand until well incorporated.
For the raw vegan sour cream:
  1. Puree all ingredients well until smooth.
For the kiwi salsa
  1. Chop and mix all ingredients together by hand, or pulse a few times in the food processor.
For the guacamole
  1. Mash everything together until smooth.
To assemble
  1. To assemble the taco, carefully remove the outer leaves of the cabbage and discard. Then start to remove leaves carefully to use as the shells. I like to chop off the stem of the cabbage as this helps the leaves separate from the cabbage without tearing. Expect to lose a few leaves in this process as it can be tricky at first.
  2. Place some of the chorizo inside the shell and top with the cashew sour cream, guacamole and kiwi salsa. Enjoy!
