Absolutely delicious! The walnuts gives this recipe a nice meaty texture, and the seasonings top it off.

Do you activate the walnuts for this recipe?

Ideally, you will activate all nuts and seeds (except for hemp, chia, and flax) before using. Use DRY activated walnuts in this recipe, NOT wet. (So, soaked and dehydrated.)

The texture and color matched that of meat, impressive. but it tastes overwhelmingly walnut-ty probably because it is made mostly of walnuts. Now, here’s the deal – I did not activate my walnuts. I’m curious and think that maybe with activating, the strong semi-bitter taste would die down a bit. Thoughts?

It sounds like your walnuts were rancid. Make sure you use fresh walnuts, as they are highly susceptible to rancidity, and when they go bad, they do, indeed taste terrible, and get very bitter. When you use fresh walnuts and use the measurements prescribed of the spices and other ingredients, this taco meat does not taste like walnuts, and it does not have a bitter aftertaste. This recipe can also be made with blanched almonds instead of walnuts.

I love this mix, I have made it quite a few times and love it in a lettuce leaf with the sour cream, the pico de gallo and some avo… my 12 year old son likes it too… I prefer it cold but you can heat it up.
