Chickpea Avocado Tacos

Introduction

It sounds bizarre, but YES, this is a raw, vegan, room-temperature taco recipe -- and it's absolutely AMAZING. It sounds bizarre, but YES, this is a raw, vegan, room-temperature taco recipe -- and it's absolutely AMAZING.
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1: 15oz. can of chickpeas, drained
    1 Hass Avocado
    1 Lime
    1 tsp cumin
    1 tsp chili powder
    1 tsp Tobasco
    1 cup diced tomatoes
    2 cups baby salad greens
    4 tbsp. vegan sour cream (optional)
    8 Crispy Taco Shells

Directions

1.) Preheat oven to 250 degrees; put taco shells in oven for 10 minutes to heat up while you prepare the filling
2.) Scoop avocado into a bowl. Juice lime over the avocado meat to prevent browning. Add 1/2 cup of the chickpeas. Use a fork to mash avocado and chickpeas together. Stir in remaining chickpeas, cumin, chili powder and tobasco sauce.
3.) Put approximately 1/4 cup of the chickpea mixture into each taco shell. Top with tomatoes, greens, and sour cream (if desired). (I usually skip the sour cream; the avocado is creamy enough!)

Serving size is 2 tacos; nutrition information given per taco.

This is delicious alongside a simple green salad or some seasoned rice.

    FYI: chickpeas and tortillas are cooked so recipe is not completely raw, but VERY tasty! Easier for me to mash with potato masher rather than fork and is not spicy even with all of hot seasonings. The only thing I changed was leaving out the greens and adding a little shredded cheese. Yum! - 9/3/09

    Thanks for the correction -- I wouldn't have even thought that chickpeas were cooked. My apologies to any raw foodies out there!
