You don't need a frying pan for this taco meat! A food processor works just fine! Its rich, full of flavor, and super fast to whip up.


  1. Put ingredients in a food processor.
  2. Pulse until course and crumbly. Don't pulse for too long, or else you'll end up with butter!

What a great tasty surprise this turned out to be! We love walnuts and the spices that are called for and thought ok chopped walnuts could have that crumbled meat texture, but soy sauce? Well dove in and made as written and was pleasantly surprised at how tasty it was. We enjoyed it over chips with nacho cheese sauce for a quick snack type of lunch but am already planning to make soft shelled tacos using corn (the corn helps bring out the flavor) tortillas with all the fixings. Guess by now you have figured out we will be enjoying this quit often. Thanks for the post.

When I was in Brisbane I had my first encounter with walnut tacos. I liked the idea that fake meat wasn't used. I made the recipe as is, and for my taste it is a little salty. Next time I'll add less soy sauce. I also used smoked paprika, but next time I think I'll use hot paprika. Very good and filling.
