Vegan endive tacos, chickpea hummus, and sunseed pate

BT Toronto | posted Tuesday, Aug 13th, 2013

Vegan endive tacos, chickpea hummus, and sunseed pate

No-meat endive tacos

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup + 1 tbsp raw almond butter
  • 4 sundried tomatoes, soaked and chopped
  • 3 tbsp fresh basil, shredded
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • Pinch cumin
  • sea salt to taste

Method:

  1. Combine all ingredients in food processor and blend until the mixture reaches a texture similar to ground meat.
  2. Scoop the mixture out by into heaping teaspoons and form each meatball.  Try not to over-roll them; we are going for “rustic” Italian here!
  3. This mix can be served as balls over raw zucchini pasta as seen here, but it can also be a great vegetarian stand-in for any recipe you’d use ground meat.  Try it as a taco or sandwich filling, a base for a raw chilli, or as a crunchy topping for salad or soup!  This protein-packed flavour blend pairs well with marinara sauce, cashew sour cream or pesto!
