Walnut tacos

Written by

In the forward of The 22-Day Revolution by Beyoncé's chef Marco Borges, Bey not only explains how she was able to sustain this big shift in her diet but also specifically calls out for this recipe: "I couldn't believe how much of our health we can control with food. And that I could still love food but this time it would love me back". With the Beyoncé seal of approval, I decided to try them out for myself — and I'm so glad I did. The hearty combination of walnuts and avocado makes this a Mexican-inspired dish packed with heart-healthy fats and a very fulfilling meal for the entire family.



8 large romaine leaves
2 cups walnuts
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon coriander
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon coconut aminos
Dash of paprika
Dash of garlic powder
Dash of black pepper

To garnish:

2 avocados, peeled, pitted, and sliced
1/2 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 tablespoon parsley flakes
Pinch of black pepper
Pinch of sea salt
Juice of 1 lime


Thoroughly wash and drain the lettuce and tomatoes in a colander or on a paper towel and set aside while preparing the remaining ingredients.

Combine all taco ingredients in a food processor.

Pulse several times until crumbly, making sure not to overblend.

Spread the walnut taco meat on the romaine leaves in equal servings.

Garnish the walnut taco meat with sliced avocado, tomatoes, parsley, ground pepper, sea salt, and lime juice.
