This recipe takes your traditional taco recipe and puts it on its ear. It’s raw. It’s vegan. And you’d never know the difference!
One thing that is a must for this recipe is fresh spices. Not the stuff that’s been sitting in the back of your cabinet for two years – you know who you are, spice people!
