RAW VEGAN GLUTEN FREE TOMATO TACO SHELLS

September 8, 2012

Dear One,

If you are reading me for the first time, welcome to my blog, and thank you for stopping by. If you have been here before, thank you for visiting again.

I had taco shells in mind. But as I didn’t have any corn, but plenty of tomatoes, these were born.

For about 12 shells / wraps :

2 large ripe tomatoes (weighed in at 420g), chopped

4 halves sun-dried tomatoes (about 20g), soaked in warm water for about 1 hour, then chopped

2 tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp tamari

1/4 cup flax seeds (about 40g)

2 tbsp sesame seeds (I used white, black would give an even nicer colour contrast)

4 cloves garlic, crushed

about 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

1 small bunch fresh basil

1 small bunch fresh oregano

Process the flax seeds into a fine meal using a coffee mill or similar device.

Blend the tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, lemon juice and tamari until smooth. Add the flax meal and blend again shortly. Transfer to a bowl and add the sesame seeds, the crushed garlic, the black pepper and the fresh herbs, roughly chopped. Mix thoroughly using a spatula.

Use a scoop to spread even-sized rounds of batter onto 2 dehydrator non stick sheets. Or alternatively, spread one big circle per dehydrator tray to make 2 big round wraps.

Dehydrate until dry enough to flip over, and dehydrate on the other side until both sides are perfectly dry, but still pliable.

Enjoy with fillings of your choice : salad leaves, guacamole, corn kernels, raw mayonnaise, sprouts, rehydrated sea vegetables, raw nut cheese, …

Keep Smiling

  1. Wow, this recipe sounds amazing, and perfect for someone like me who is gluten and corn free. Where can I get dehydrator sheets? I’ve never heard of them…


    • Hello Vanessa,
      Dehydrator trays usually have a mesh-like structure, with holes in them. Non stick dehydrator sheets are needed when dehydrating wet mixtures, especially vegetable wraps, fruit leathers or kale chips. They can also be used under the mesh trays to collect crumbs and make cleaning the dehydrator easier.
      There are special ones made especially for the Excalibur and the Sedona, or one can use any baking non stick sheets or even grease-proof paper. I hope this helps clarify 🙂
