Traditional meat-filled taco salads are a delicious staple in many households, but have you ever thought about switching the traditional meat-based filling for something a little different? Enter: walnut taco meat, a homemade plant-based ground beef alternative that is easy to make and tastes great!
This recipe is actually incredibly simple to make too – just rehydrate the sun-dried tomatoes and peppers in boiling water. Then pulse all of the ingredients together in a food processor until it resembles the look and texture of ground beef. The end result is a flavorful, protein-packed no-cook meat substitute that is perfect for tacos, burritos, and salads.
One of the best ways to serve this walnut taco meat is in a taco salad! You can build your taco salad any way you like with ingredients that you already have on hand. I’ll walk you through how we built ours, but just keep in mind that there are all sorts of delicious toppings not featured here that you could use like beans, pickled onions, or pico de Gallo.
