Simple Pickled Cabbage Recipe! This recipe is so easy and doesn’t require a lot of time or fancy equipment.

I love Mexican cuisine, it’s one of my favorites, which means I love tacos. I find raw, vegan tacos so much better than cooked ones. There are so many different flavors and textures you can incorporate.

I collaborated with 6 other chefs this year to offer the 7 Days 7 Chefs Meal Plan and each of us provide a full days worth of recipes. Breakfast, snack, lunch dinner and dessert.

Naturally I had to come up with a taco recipe and this one hit it out of the park. It’s become a fan favorite amongst the chefs and participants.

The raw, vegan and gluten-free taco recipe includes:

  • Fresh jicama taco base
  • Avocado mash
  • Sunflower taco “meat”
  • Pineapple salsa
  • Pickled cabbage
  • Hemp Queso

I thought I’d share the pickled cabbage recipe with you all because it’s so versatile and can be used on so many dishes.
