Home Made Pinto Beans with Walnut Cauliflower Taco Meat

Ok, so being a Vegan is really quite tasty and pretty easy if you know a little about cooking and have a few gadgets around the kitchen. I live for my Cuisinart Pressure Cooker (all though and all-in-one Pot would work, too) Tonight was pinto beans with Taco “Meat” Cilantro and Salsa. And it was so easy and delicious.

First, the beans:
1 cup Pinto Beans, dry
3 cups Vegetable stock (or water)
1/2 onion, diced
1/2 tsp Cumin
1/2 tsp Hungarian Paprika (hot or sweet is fine)
1/2 tsp Tumeric
1/2 tsp Cayanne or red pepper spice of your choice
1/4 tsp salt

Combine ingredients in Pressure Cooker. Set for 40 mins on high pressure, seal, and cook. When done, let pressure release naturally (about another 10 mins). Beans will be tender, without soaking overnight. If you don’t have a pressure cooker, soak your beans first as instructed on package.

Now, the “Meat”
1 cup Cauliflower flourettes
1/2 cup Walnuts
3 Chipotle Peppers in Adobo sauce (canned)
1 tsp Cumin
1/2 tsp cayenne or red pepper spice
Salt to taste (I don’t use any)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder

Combine ingredients in food processor (or blender) and process until course mixture. Put on greased baking sheet in preheated oven at 375 for 30 minutes. Remove, crumble, serve.

Put on cup of beans in bowl/plate. Cover with one ounce of “meat” and top with cilantro and salsa of your choice.
