Raw Jicama Street Tacos

Raw Jicama Street Tacos 

These delicious raw jicama tacos will help you not miss cooking food as much when you are on your raw vegan game. Jicama shells add a nice crisp and twist to a dish we eat often. I used olive oil, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt to help soften up the Jicama so they would not snap in half when you bend them for the tacos. The sunflower dip was my replacement for refried beans, and I made tasty walnut crumbles to top the tacos off. The tacos were complete once I added the chipotle lime sauce. Try this recipe when you are on your mindful eating tip or want some good tacos.
