Cinco De Mayo Vibes - NEW Taco Recipe!

RecipeGet Your Vibes

NEW taco recipe, just in time for Cinco De Mayo!  The flavor is festive and super healthy. 

 Ingredients:

½ Head of purple cabbage

1 Red pepper

1 Mango

½ Sweet onion or purple onion

¼ Cup of cilantro

3-4 Portobello mushrooms

3 Limes

3-4 Tablespoons of honey

Get Your Vibes garlic cashew dip

Tortillas of your choice

Hoisin sauce

Olive Oil

Garlic powder

Pepper

Cumin

Salt

Start by shredding the purple, chopping the red pepper, onion, cilantro and mango.  Toss it in a large bowl.  Squeeze the juice from the limes (same a half of one for garnish or extra juice on top of the taco) in the bowl, add in the honey, about 1 teaspoon of cumin or more, ½ teaspoon or more of garlic powder and salt and pepper to your liking. Mix it really well, add in more lime, honey, or spices if you needed.

Thinly slice the portobello mushrooms, add them to a pan with a little olive oil.  Add in 3-4 tablespoons of hoisin sauce and sauté.  Add in some garlic powder, salt and pepper, combine on the stovetop until the mushrooms have absorbed the sauce and spices.  Once the mushrooms are done set them aside.  Warm your tortillas and add the GYV garlic cashew dip as a base, place the cabbage mixture on top, then add the mushrooms and feel free to garnish with more cilantro and fresh lime. 

It’s easy, healthy and really delicious!  Enjoy!

Cashew Garlic Dip

RecipeGet Your Vibes

Recently I had the opportunity to go on Lunch Break Live with Jane Velez Mitchell and share one of my favorite Get Your Vibes recipes, the always versatile and super easy Cashew Garlic Dip!

If you missed it, you can watch the interview live here!

I like to make this recipe at the start of each week because I enjoy adding a dollop on my salads, soups, toast and have it ready as a dip for any impromptu hang outs at my house.  It’s convenient and has great flavor.

Start by soaking the cashews in 2 ½ cups in hot water for about 45 minutes to an hour.  Drain the cashews but save at least 1 cup of water, it’s important that all the cashews are covered by the hot water.  In a high-powered blender or nutribullet, add the cashews, cloves of garlic, black pepper, salt, lemon juice, nutritional yeast and then add the cashew water and blend!

It really is that easy!  I love to plate it and serve it as a crudité plate, as a spread on a sandwich as opposed to mayo, and like I mentioned earlier I love adding a dollop on top of my salad, soup or even a pasta dish, it also is a great replacement for sour cream!  So, as you see its simple, healthy and there are so many ways to enjoy it!

Ingredients:

1 ½ cups of cashews

2-3 cloves of garlic (depending on your flavor pallet)

Juice of 1 lemon

½ teaspoon of black pepper

¼ teaspoon of sea salt

¼ cup of nutritional yeast
