Raw Walnut Mushroom Taco Lettuce Wraps

I woke up yesterday, looked at my phone and with a gasp, realized it was June 1 st. How the heck did that happen? And why am I always a few months behind? Time seems to be moving at warp speed these days.


Raw, Vegan Walnut Mushroom Taco Lettuce Wraps


That said, apparently it is June, and June is a great time to roll out some refreshing summer recipes. These lettuce wraps are really delicious and fall beautifully into the refreshing category. They are delicious and satisfying and will be on my menu frequently this summer.

The “taco meat” is made from soaked walnuts, marinated mushrooms and cooked quinoa (optional). Make sure you allow time to soak your walnuts and marinate your mushrooms ahead of time. You can easily do this in the morning, put them in the refrigerator and have them ready a couple of hours later when you are ready to make the wraps.

Walnuts are a favorite of mine. They are a great source of omega 3’s, and antioxidants. They help fight cancer, support heart health* and actually can assist in weight loss! I have “lightened up” the walnut mixture with mushrooms and quinoa. Two more nutritional stars. I hope this vegan, raw food recipe will become a staple in your home.

Oh…one more thing. If you have a second, we love to hear from you! Leave a comment to let us know what you think! We want to make sure you are enjoying the recipes and they are relevant for you!


Two Tips for You


You can find a great video on walnuts and heart health at NutritionFacts.Org, one of our favorite sites.

Make sure you marinate your mushrooms and soak your walnuts at least 3 hours before making the wraps

    My husband and I have been plant-based eaters for more than two years now. We wanted to see what all the “Raw Fuss” was about. That’s when I stumbled upon your good work. We just finished these tacos and want to give you two thumbs up! I didn’t have time to marinate the mushrooms, nor did I soak the walnuts that long (though I did soak them in hot water, in hopes that would speed the process. It all turned out lovely! I used my cold-pack, refrigerated, pickled red onions and that added a really nice element tot he recipe. This one is a keeper! I’ll be making it for our FOUR vegan kids! Thank you!

    Could you substitute cashews or almonds for the walnuts?

    • Susan wrote on June 17, 2015

      You can but the flavor and texture will change quite a bit. Walnuts have a real meaty feel. Cheers!

    I am allergic to mushrooms. What can I use instead?
    Thanks for the great recipe. Can’t wait to make it.
