Ingredients

  • 3 large carrots
  • 1 1/2 cup cauliflower
  • 1 ⁄2 large sweet onion diced
  • 1 cup raw pecan halves
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 tsp ground chipotle seasoning
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 12 Butter or Bibb lettuce leaves
  • 1 medium avocado cubed
  • Fresh chopped Cilantro

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Add carrots, cauliflower, sweet onion, pecan halves, garlic cloves and all seasonings to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse all ingredients until the mixture is evenly ground yet still has some smaller chunks {see pictures}, approximately 10-15 seconds.
  • Transfer vegan taco "meat" to a greased baking sheet and spread into a single layer. Bake for 20-22 minutes, stirring halfway through to prevent over-browning. You want the carrots and cauliflower to be cooked but not mushy, leaving it with a slightly crunchy texture.
  • Allow the mixture to cool slightly, then divide evenly among 12 lettuce leaves, approximately 1/4 cup mixture for each lettuce leaf.
  • Top with avocado and cilantro then serve! If you're not worried about keeping this Vegan, sour cream or Cotija cheese would be great additions as well! Enjoy!
