Big Sur Vegan Tacos™

By Zesty Planet

  • 1 Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Corn or Sprouted Grain Tortilla
  • 1 Layer of Avocado, (first layer, pressed/smashed into tortilla)
  • 2 tbsp. Soaked and Sprouted Organic Forbidden Black Rice (Lotus Foods)
  • 2 tbsp. Homemade Sauerkraut (see for recipe)
  • 3 Cherry Tomatoes, sliced in quarters (marinated in curry powder & cayenne)
  • 1 tbsp. Dulse Leaves (seaweed, Maine Coast Sea Vegetables)
  • 1 tbsp. Sprouted Blue Corn Tortilla Chips, crushed by hand (Garden of Eatin')
  • 1 Red Leaf Lettuce (to cover/seal taco)

*All 100% Organic Ingredients.



  1. Soak Organic Forbidden Black Rice in a glass container for 24 hours. It blooms faster if kept in warmer temperatures. For a faster, fuller bloom, keep soaking rice in a dehydrator at 100ºF overnight.
  2. ZP's Smoked Sauerkraut. Prepare in 2-quart glass jar five (5) days prior to making tacos.


  1. Press 2 tbsp Avocado onto Tortilla, spread evenly.
  2. Next, add 2 tbsp of Sprouted Rice.
  3. Add layer of Sauerkraut.
  4. Top with 3 curry-cayenne-marinated Tomato slices.
  5. Tear Dulse Leaves and layer evenly over tomatoes.
  6. Sprinkle a top layer of crushed blue corn tortilla chips; adjust quantity in proportion to desired crunch factor ratio.
  7. Tear large red leaf lettuce and cover taco to seal in ingredients.
  8. Serve with paper's going to be juicy!

Notes: We wanted to promote the Vegan lifestyle to our friends while camping in Big Sur, CA. So we came up with a new taco recipe that everyone (non-vegans, vegetarians and high-raw folks alike) could enjoy. We hope you like it too!
