2 cups of walnuts 

1 teaspoon of sea salt

1 teaspoons of onion powder

1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper

1 teaspoons oil 

1 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil 

1 avocado

4 plum tomatoes


1 handful of your favorite herb (cilantro, dill, basil, parsley etc)

2 key limes

2 cups of cashews (or nut of your choice)

3/4 cups of water


Pull apart lettuce leaves, wash then set to the side. Peel and scoop avocado into a bowl then sprinkle seas salt and set to the side. Chop tomatoes and set to the side. Soak cashews for a few hours then drain and add to a blender with 1 teaspoon of sea salt, onion powder, lime juice, olive oil and your favorite herb then blend on high while adding in water. Once you reach your desired consistency set to side. Combine walnuts, desired seasonings and oil in a separate blender or food processor and pulse a few times until you reach a ground "meat" consistency. Be careful not to over blend or else you will end up with a spiced walnut butter. Serve raw or transfer to a skillet and saute for about 2 minutes. Build your lettuce wrap in this order-  lettuce leaf, walnut meat, mashed avocado, chopped tomatoes, cashew cream. Roll up and enjoy!
