Healthy Jicama Taco Recipe by Markus Rothkranz

Everyone enjoys tacos, they are a quick and filling meal that can appeal to all palates. In this video we’re shown a healthy alternative to eating tacos. Most people eat tacos with some kind of tortilla, which are usually fried, and then add a meat protein, followed by some veggies, cheese, and other flavorings. However, Cara Brotman is going to show us how to make healthy, raw, vegan tacos that are jam packed with flavor but also very simple to make.

Cara starts off by slicing some jicama very thinly with her mandolin slicer. Once she’s got the right width of her taco shell, she starts making some guacamole. “Less is more.” Cara tells us to keep in mind when making guacamole. She states that in her younger years she would add all sorts of bell peppers, onions, olive oil, etc. to guacamole but it doesn’t need all that. Some cilantro, lime, onion, and salt is all you need to add to your mashed avocados for an easy and delicious guacamole.

Next Cara shows us a squirt bottle filled with cashew cream which she’s going to drizzle over the tacos once finished. Cara begins to show us how to make the jicama tacos. She slightly folds the jicama shell in the palm of her hand and then dabs the guacamole in the middle and tops the guacamole with the cauliflower mixture she made in a previous video. Then she drizzles the cashew cream on top and the jicama taco is finished and ready to eat. An optional topping would be an organic hot sauce that can be bought at Whole Foods.

Cara finishes the video by tasting the taco and telling us that the flavors are just explosive and delicious. She says it’s one of the fastest recipes and would be really great for kids, especially since it’s healthy. You could even skip the cauliflower mixture and just dab the guacamole in the middle, drizzle the cashew cream and hot sauce, and still have an amazing healthy alternative for tacos.
