Red Pepper Deli

Raw Tacos

On my way home from yoga tonight, I HAD to stop into Red Pepper Deli in downtown Northville, MI. I am in love with their Raw Tacos. Yes I can make them at home, but they are so much better when I don’t have to do anything for them.  They are just the best there! Here is how they have it listed on the menu… RAW TACOS- WALNUT MEAT, FRESH TOMATO SALSA, ROMAINE AND SUNFLOWER SPROUTS $9. You can add quacamole for another $2, which is totally worth it. With it I ordered the TROPICOLADA- COCONUT MILK, PINEAPPLE, MANGO, AGAVE for another $5. It does seem a bit expensive once it is all rung up, but this is all-natural, raw, healthy goodness for your belly, you can’t be chincy. If you do happen to make it out that way, stop in and grab yourself some Raw Tacos or a shot of Wheat Grass! Before you do though, head over to Bikram Yoga Northville and work up your appetite.

You can try my variation of the raw tacos at home. You really can’t beat eating this healthy! When I prepare my version, the kids love it and eat it up just like regular tacos. Here is what I use for the “meat”… I end up combining 1/2 lb. finely chopped walnuts, 1 Can of Seasoned/Unseasoned black beans, a good amount of Ortega Taco Seasoning.  It would be much healthier and considerably cheaper to use dry black beans and cook to taste. There are times when I will do up batches of things at the end of the week for the next week, this is the time to cook up all those beans and rice. My kids love to make our tacos write in a large piece of Romaine. That is definitely healthier than them making me fry a flour soft shell in butter before they fill it. That use to be our favorite way…

Do it up your favorite way, but please come back to tell us how you did it! I would love to know…
