Nut Meat & Purple Cabbage Taco Shells

Nut meat? I'm sure some of you are wondering what nut meat is and I'm here to tell you that this is a fantastic alternative to meat. Chopped raw almonds and walnuts are combined with spices to make a faux meat filling. It has a wonderful flavor packed punch and gives you the filling of something substantial when consuming raw vegetables which sometimes seem to leave you feeling hungry right after you ate.

1/2 Cup Whole Almonds, Raw
1/2 Cup Whole Walnuts, Raw
1/2 Teaspoon Chili Powder
1/8 Teaspoon Cheyenne Pepper
2 Tablespoons Sundried Tomatoes (packed in oil)
1-2 Tablespoons Olive Oil (not OVOO)
1 Teaspoon Braggs Amino (Soy Sauce Alternative)

Put all ingredients in the food processor and give it a whirl. Process until the nuts form a course paste.
To assemble the cabbage tacos:
Remove the leaves from a red cabbage head
Cut out the tough pieces in the middle if it's too difficult to fold
Add baby spinach, chopped green onions, fresh cilantro, and fire roasted salsa. Fill with nut meat and enjoy!
