Raw Walnut Tacos, Spiced Melon Soup and Watermelon Mojito Popsicles

I’ve been waiting for a good night to blog about these particular recipes.  We tried them almost a month ago and I took pictures, intending to put them up but then got distracted by other dinners!

Well, I got my chance tonight because I BOMBED with a pizza.  The sauce was too sweet, didn’t go with the aged cheddar and was all around average.  But the Greek Vinaigrette that I whipped up was notable so we didn’t starve and I’ll post that recipe later.  BUT, it’s a good night to flaunt someone else’s recipes since mine averaged a B- for the day.

Ever since Coco of Roostblog posted this, I’ve been dying to try it!  Her meal included the following recipes:

Tacos- made with lettuce wraps and walnuts, chopped and spiced to taste like meat.

Spiced Melon and Avocado Shooters- Notable here is the combination of avocado, nutmeg, ginger and cayenne.

Cashew Sour Cream- Tasty on both tacos and chilled soup!

Watermelon Mojito Popsicles- Made by squeezing watermelon through a cheesecloth and mixing it with SCD legal light rum and fresh mint (fresh from my garden)!

In addition, I whipped up some easy guacamole and pico de gallo.  I think Coco bought hers from Whole Foods and while I love their stuff, it’s a lot less expensive to make my own.  The only real substitution I made was honeydew melon for cantaloupe since I really don’t like cantaloupe.  (I know, weird).

The whole meal was incredible and such a joy to consume.  The tacos were so filling.  I bought butterball lettuce from the Logan Square Farmer’s Market and was overjoyed at how good it was!  Pre-soaking the nuts is always annoying but the cashew sour cream and walnut filling made it worth it.  The whole meal is raw and incredibly good.

Loved sharing it with my loved ones.  Peace and health to us all.
