Walnut Fiesta Burrito Recipe

Sometimes a burrito just hits the spot, but what if you were vegan? This recipe from Jeff Rose, owner of Natural Zing, offers a vegan take on this hearty dish. It’s also featured in side The Vegan Challenge by Lisa Montgomery.

Walnut Fiesta Burrito

2 cups Natural Zing Walnuts, soaked
1 clove organic garlic
1 tablespoon Olio Beato olive oil
½ teaspoon organic chili powder
½ teaspoon organic cumin powder
½ teaspoon organic chipotle powder
2 tablespoons nama shoyu
3–4 fresh organic collard leaves

Soak walnuts overnight (or at least 8 hours) and drain. Place the walnuts into a food processor and pulse until the walnuts reach a taco filling-like texture. Pour into a bowl, add in all the remaining ingredients, and mix gently to combine. Spoon some of the filling out onto a collard leaf. Add whatever fresh ingredients you like, such as tomatoes, avocado, and romaine. Fold and enjoy.
