Instructions
  1. Put walnuts in a food processor, pulse 3-5 times just until they are slightly chopped up. Transfer walnuts to a medium mixing bowl and set aside.
  2. Drain tomatoes and reserve liquid. Add tomatoes, garlic, paprika, cumin, chili powder, peppers, and nutritional yeast (optional) to the bowl of the food processor and blend until a smooth paste is formed.
  3. Add 1 Tbsp at a time of reserved tomato liquid to desired consistency (sauce should be thick but able to be poured).
  4. Add sauce to walnuts and stir to combine. Taste and adjust flavor with spices as needed.
  5. Heat pan over medium heat. Add 1 Tbsp oil. Add walnut mixture and sauté 2-3 minutes (just to warm and slightly soften).
  6. Garnish with radish, avocado, cilantro and other favorite toppings. Enjoy in tacos, salads, nachos, burritos, and more!
