Raw Vegan Tacos

The food processor became my new best friend this past week. It was my main “stove” during my 7-day raw vegan challenge. To tell you the truth the 7 days flew by and I felt like I barely scratched the surface of the delicious world of raw vegan (non) cooking.

So far, I’ve discovered there’s a raw option for cuisines like Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Filipino, even Mexican. One of the recipes I’ve learned is how to make raw vegan tacos.


I got the recipe from a blogger friend, Spring Vegan.




  • 1 bunch of collard greens, washed thoroughly
  • 1/4 cup almonds (I used a combo of almonds and peanuts)
  • 1 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp coriander powder
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/8 tsp minced garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • tomatoes
  • raw olives (I left out this one)
  • avocado
  • cilantro



  1. In a food processor or blender, process the nuts until finely grounded
  2. Mix in the oil, garlic, spices, and salt and pepper to taste. Process until incorporated well.
  3. Transfer to a bowl
  4. Place a collard green leaf on a plate and add your ingredients in the middle: nuts, tomatoes, avocado, cilantro


Feel free to top it with other ingredients and vegetables.


You may also wrap them completely for raw vegan Taquitos:




Here are other raw vegan goodness I’ve been eating from the past few days:


Blueberry Almond Butter ice cream. Recipe from Junia of Mis Pensamientos.


Sushi filled with cashew cream and raw vegetables, wrapped in romaine lettuce


Alive & Radiant‘s Cheesy Kale Chips (not the actual quantity, I was eating them when I remembered to take a photo)


Sun Power Natural‘s Fruit Burst Cookies.

My next post will be concluding my 7-day adventure as a raw foodie. I had great fun learning the even more guilt-free lifestyle. Rest assured I’ll continue to learn more raw recipes and have fun along the way.

    • Thanks! It was very refreshing thanks to Spring Vegan. And soon, I shall learn from you too with your 7 day salad challenge =)

  1. Everything looks lovely, and I bet it was delicious too.

    I was raw vegan for a little over a year. I always ate a high amount of raw foods before.. You’re definitely not limited eating raw foods, so many options out there, and it gave me a chance to be creative.

    Warmer months are the time when my diet is mainly raw food, since I have so much of a variety of vegetables and fruits, and the majority is coming directly from our garden.

    • I agree, raw food gives people a chance to be creative. I definitely will still make raw dishes now that the challenge is over. Btw, I love that you’re growing your own food!

  2. i LOVE the almond tacos! totally bookmarking this! and i’m glad you got to try the ice cream :D!!! i did the raw food diet once and i felt incredible :).
