RAW COCONUT MEAT TACOS
These raw coconut meat tacos are inspired by my all-time favorite restaurant called Plant Miami. They change their menu often, and they've since replaced these with their mouth-watering jackfruit tacos. I highly recommend a trip there. You'll leave feeling inspired to get creative with raw plant-based dishes and presentations.
This dish is bursting with fresh, flavorful ingredients and is loaded with minerals, vitamins and minerals. The cashew sauce is what made them at the restaurant, so I had to find something similar! Gabby raves about how bomb her cashew sauce is, so hey, I don't mess with perfection. I tried hers from her site, which I linked above. Follow her if you're not already!
Grab a fresh thai coconut. Don't know how to open one or scoop out the meat? Grab this contraption to help you. Drink it, then scoop out the meat. Place in a covered bowl in the fridge for these tacos if you're having them later, otherwise set it aside while you get everything else ready.
You will need:
1-2 heads of romaine lettuce
1 orange pepper
1 fresh thai coconut
7 cherry tomatoes
Wash all ingredients.
Plate: Lay the romaine leaves as flat as you can on a platter. Wipe the cashew sauce over the leaves. Be generous with it, it's so good. Lay the coconut meat, tomatoes, orange peppers, radishes, and a bit of ground pepper. Add as much cilantro as you like for taste and presentation.
Add anything else you might like and enjoy! See below the video for a similar version using chickpeas instead of coconut meat.
