Soft Taco Shell Ingredients:

  • 2 cups roughly chopped gold potatoes
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp pure maple syrup


Preheat the oven to 400°F/200°C. To make the taco shells, add 2-inches of water to a medium pot, insert a steaming basket, add the potatoes, and cover. Once the water is boiling, steam the potatoes for 20-25 minutes until soft. Remove the potatoes and place them in a food processor with the garlic powder, onion powder, and maple syrup. Blend until smooth. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the mixture using a wet spatula, making 4 mini tortillas. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until lightly browned. Remove and pat down with the spatula. Flip the parchment paper over onto a cutting board and gently peel back. Set taco shells aside.

Taco Seasoned Potato Cubes Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs red or gold potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp chipotle powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt (optional)


To make the taco seasoned potato cubes, preheat oven to 400F/200C and line a large baking tray with parchment paper. Steam the potato cubes in a steamer set over a pan of boiling water for 10-15 minutes, until almost tender. Remove and place in a bowl. Add the spices and sea salt and toss until evenly coated. Spread the potatoes evenly onto the baking tray and bake for 20-25 minutes, stirring half way, until browned and crispy.

Nacho Cheese Sauce Ingredients:

  • 1 cup peeled, diced potato
  • 1/4 cup peeled, finely chopped carrot
  • 1/2 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika


To make the cheese sauce, steam the diced potatoes and carrot over boiling water for 10-12 minutes or until tender. Place in a blender together with the lime juice, onion powder, garlic powder, and paprika. Blend until smooth.

Salsa Ingredients:

  • 2 cups finely chopped tomato
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 2-3 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 small garlic clove, finely minced
  • 1/2 serrano chili or Jalapeno, finely minced
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin (optional)


To make the salsa, combine all the ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and mix well. Set aside.

Millet Ingredients:


Combine the millet and water or vegetable/healing broth in a medium-sized saucepan, cover and bring to a boil on high heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10-13 minutes, until all the water is absorbed. Remove from heat and set aside for 10 minutes. Fluff up with fork.

Brown Rice Ingredients:

  • 1 cup brown rice, rinsed well under cold water
  • 2 cups water


To cook the rice, combine the rinsed rice and water in a pot and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 45 minutes. Remove from the heat and let it sit, covered for 10 more minutes. Fluff with a fork.

Refried Beans Ingredients:

  • 1/2 medium-sized onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 cans (or 3 cups cooked) black or pinto beans
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp chipotle powder
  • 1/3 cup water


To make the refried beans, place a medium-sized non-stick ceramic skillet on medium-high heat and add the onion and garlic. Cook for 3-5 minutes, until the onion is translucent, adding a bit of water if needed to prevent sticking. Remove from heat and add in the beans, cumin, chipotle powder, and water and mash until you get a smooth, even mixture. Alternatively you can transfer the mixture to a blender and blend until smooth. Set aside.

Guacamole Ingredients:

  • 2 large or 3 small avocados
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped red or white onion
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1-2 tsp fresh finely chopped Jalapeño (optional)
  • Juice from 1/2 lime
  • 1/4 cup diced tomato


To make the guacamole, add the pitted and peeled avocados to a medium-sized bowl. Mash using a potato masher or a fork until the guacamole is smooth but still has some chunkiness. Add all the remaining ingredients and mix together gently with a spoon. Taste and adjust seasoning. Set aside.

Taco Preparation:

Divide the ingredients of choice between taco shells. Top with cilantro. If making Option #2, also top with optional black beans. Serve immediately.
