  • Food processor



  • 2 large carrots
  • 2 cups cauliflower
  • 1.5 cup raw walnut pieces halves
  • 1-2 chipotles in adobo sauce
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt


  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 1 can refried beans
  • 1-2 medium avocados cubed
  • green or red onion finely chopped
  • fresh cilantro chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease large baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Add carrots, cauliflower, walnuts, chipotle peppers 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.
  • While taco “meat” cooks, heat tortillas in small skillet, one by one, about 1 minute on each side until it begins to brown. Wrap each toasted tortilla in aluminum foil to keep warm and fresh until ready to assemble
  • Once taco “meat” has cooked and cooled slightly, begin to assemble your tacos, adding a large spoonful of cooked refried beans to each toasted tortilla, followed by taco “meat”, avocado, fresh herbs and chopped onions. Enjoy!
