METHOD

[/nectar_highlighted_text][vc_column_text css_animation=”fadeIn”]
  • Crumble up 1 pack of cashew fruit meat into a bowl combing all the spices and mix through
  • Sautée lightly for a few minutes
  • Transfer back to a bowl and begin flattening 2 tablespoon sized scoops in the palms of your hands and set aside
  • Begin creating your batter mixture by combining all batter ingredients in large bowl and mix until no clumps remain
  • To make the coating of your chalupas easier I recommend holding the patty in your palms and coat one side with the batter by scooping some batter on the top
  • Then once top side is coated toss the patty in a non stick pan, battered side facing down and begin coating the other side with batter
  • Cook until golden brown on both sides being very gentle when flipping
  • Make your avocado ranch by combining all ranch ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth
  • Prepare your chalupas (recommend placing them folded in a taco shell holder) and stuff them with lettuce, tomatoes, vegan cheese and topped with your avocado ranch
  • Enjoy!
