Go ahead, wrinkle your nose, turn your head in disbelief, slam your laptop cover closed in disgust (carefully), sigh and say, “Eeeewww!”…. ok good, now that you got that out of your system… we can get down to business :)
Trust me, I used to be one to pass over this concept myself. But, I am here to share and encourage you to give this recipe a try. Nut “meats” are not new. But the concept can be a hard sell. If you have been around my site and have tested a few of my recipes, you know that I wouldn’t steer wrong. Well, not on purpose.
Walnuts and portabelo mushrooms are what really kick this recipe into high gear, giving it that “meat” taste. I wouldn’t recommend substituting either one. If you do, please let me know how it turned out. We are all here to help one another.
To give this dish an even more realistic flavor, warm it up. Place the mixture in a wide mouth dish, that way more surface area is exposed to the warm air. Dehydrate at 145 degrees for 30+ minutes, or until warm. Then serve immediately. This tastes amazing on my Spicy Taco Bites too.
