Today’s #LunchBreakLIVE guests Gina Bonnos-Lemos, Vegan Nutritionist/Award-winning Author and Plant-based Chef/Cookbook Author, Joni Marie Newman, creating cauliflower cilantro lime sauce tacos from the fruit stand at Tanaka Farms in Orange County, CA. Join us for an informative plant-based cooking demo!
Joni makes it look easy as she chops up all of the veggies. She says this recipe is great for beginners and for those who like to cook intuitively, customizing their recipes to taste. Joni shares a very interesting fact about organic produce. They do have pesticides but they are organically approved pesticides. At Tanaka Farms they keep their produce so pure you can eat it right from the field. Gina explains how these tacos are an anti-cancer meal dream come true. The cauliflower, a cruciferous vegetable, has sulforaphane which has anti-cancer benefits. The strawberries have antioxidants and even the cilantro is good for you!
These tacos are done in no time at all. Gina questions why people don’t just cook plants instead of dead animal carcasses. It can take less time and a person will reap the nutritional benefits! Joni makes the cilantro lime sauce with silken tofu and a blender. Super easy to make. You can also make the base with cashews or garbanzo beans. After the tacos are ready Gina takes a taste, and they are so good they leave her virtually speechless! Get out of the city and come visit Tanaka Farms. Pick some strawberries and get some super fresh produce to make you feel like a million bucks when you eat them. Try Joni’s taco recipe below!
