Health Nut Burrito

I call this a Health Nut Burrito because the "meat" is made of almonds! I use La Tortilla Factory Smart & Delicious Soft Wraps. I know they're not organic, but the organic ones I buy are always old or fall apart! These stay together so well and have a very nutrient dense profile. The filling starts with a shmear of vegetarian canned refrired black beans and Tofutti sour cream (I have recently said goodbye to Tofutti, as I have discovered the joys of cashew sour cream, but I have to use up the tub in my fridge!). Then I add some diced tomatoes with a bit of salt, sliced avocadoes, and a sprinkle of the almond meat (recipe below). This is so good and easy. Enjoy!


1 cup roasted, salted almonds (raw is always better, but I had these in the house)
1Tbs Liquid Braggs Aminos (This is like soy sauce with a much lower sodium content. If your almonds are raw and unsalted, I would use soy sauce to make it saltier)
1 ts each garlic powder, paprika, and cumin


Pulse in food processor until coarse and crumbly, but don't take it too far, or you will end up with butter!


  1. So simple and sounds so yummy! I'll definitely be giving these a try!

  2. You could do it with walnuts too!

  3. Do you make the cashew sour cream you mentioned? If so can you post the recipe! Thanks... yummy recipes. Going to try the "nut" meat. I have a huge bag of almonds needing to be used up.

  4. Yes! The cashew sour cream is so simple. I use the recipe here, and I've made a variation of her walnut taco mix in a lettuce wrap, which gave me the idea for this burrito (only because I ran out of walnuts and lettuce!) I didn't get a good picture though so I didn't post about it, but I'll be making them again and posting about it for sure!
