These Tacos are incredible. The mix of flavours goes so well together you would never even think about it being anything else other than awesome. They are my favourite recipe for proving to people healthy can can tasty.


Romain Lettuce Taco Shells:

  • One head of Romaine lettuce

Smoked Pecan Nut Filling: (makes enough for 10 Tacos)

Tomato and Red Pepper Salsa: (makes enough for 10 Tacos)

Cashew Nut Cheese: (makes enough for 10 Tacos)

Diced Avocado:

  • 1/4 of an avocado per Taco

For the Taco Shells:

  • Do this once all other elements are made.
  • Peel the individual leaves from your head of Romaine lettuce, snapping them at the bottom.
  • Use your Romaine lettuce leaf as your taco shell.
  • Give it a wash and lay it out flat on the surface in front of you, ready to fill with all your other elements
  • Push firmly down on the stem to crack it if you leaf is curling slightly

Smoked Pecan Nut Filling:

  • In your food processor or blender, Pulse your pecan nuts to break them up but still keeping them slightly chunky.
  • Add your sun-dried tomatoes, olives, salt, paprika, garlic and grated ginger to the pecans.
  • Blend this up in your food processor until it starts to form as a slightly chunky paste mix.
  • Add in your water as needed (you may not need it at all it is just for consistency and to help it blend).

Tomato and Red Pepper Salsa:

  • Very finely chop your ginger, red onion and basil and add together into a mixing bowl.
  • With a slightly larger dice (about 0.5 of a cm square) dice your tomato and red pepper, add this into the bowl with the rest of your finely chopped ingredients.
  • Add your apple cider vinegar, tamari and rapeseed oil into your bowl of ingredients and marinade for 2-3 hours

This salsa will last in the fridge for easily more than a week if its fully covered by the marinade.

Cashew Nut Cheese:

  • Soak your cashew nuts in filtered water for 2-4 hours (drain and rinse well before use).
  • In to your blender, add your cashew nuts, apple cider vinegar, nutritional yeast, salt, the juice of half a lemon and the water.
  • Blend on full speed until it is super smooth. This should take approximately 45 seconds in a high speed blender or food processor.

Assemble by laying your Romaine leaf flat on your surface and filling with a central line of your pecan nut filling (a full large tablespoon)


Spoon around a tablespoon of your tomato salsa over your pecan nut filling (avoid getting too much of the marinade on your spoon, you really just want the chopped mix, you can drain it off the spoon when you take it from the bowl).


Dice your avocado over the top of your salsa


Spoon or pipe your cashew cheese over your whole taco


Sprinkle with nutritional yeast to garnish.
