I can eat it for breakfast or for lunch. All depends what kind of filling you would use.

As my breakfast (picture above), I prefer it with a spread of almond butter, plus a slice of banana, few strawberries, couple of spinach leaves and few seeds. Yumm.

Try it with bananas and apples for breakfast or try it with cucumbers and tomatoes for lunch, either way, it will taste delicious:).

To prepare raw taco is very simple, I usually use maximum 5-6 ingredients in my recipes for simplicity and to save time.  Although it is very quick to create the mix,  be prepared that it would take some time to dehydrate the taco, to make it more solid texture. I recommend to prepare it in the evening and leave it over night in your dehydrator or oven. So it will be ready in the morning for your delicious breakfast or lunch.

Ingredients (4-5 big tacos):

8-9 big carrots ( grated, water drained)

1 big courgette (grated or cut to small pieces)

3-4 tbsp olive oil

4-5 tbsp flax seeds (grounded)

150g sunflower and pumpkin seeds (soaked 3-4 hours before)


How to prepare:

Mix all ingredients in the kitchen processor. Pulse for 2-3 minutes to create even mixture.

Use the spoon or the spatula to divide the mixture to the 4-5 equal portions. Use your fingers or metal spoon to create a flat roundish shape for each of the tacos (see the picture below).

Carefully lay each taco on non-sticky baking paper, then place into dehydrator or normal oven. Dehydrate for 13-15 hours at 48C degrees.

Dehydrator is the best for this type of work, but you can use your usual oven. Depends on your type of oven, please shuffle your tacos around two – tree times to make sure the heat gets every where. At the end, each taco should have a crispy solid form. If not, you need to add couple of more hours to dehydrate more.

When tacos are done, as I mentioned above, you can serve them with whatever you wish.

You can store raw tacos in the fridge for 1-2 weeks, although I never  stored them for more than 3 days as they get eaten very very fast:).

Try and tell me how long they survive in your house;)! x
