Does a taquito need to be rolled? If a taquito is flat, is it a true taquito? If childhood memory serves, taquitos are bought by the box from Costco and reheated with shredded cheddar mix in the oven for a delicious after school snack. Taquitos come in beef, pork, or chicken and are basically a taco cigar. What’s better for a grade-schooler than a food cigar? (Real talk: would totally still eat these cigar taquitos. If I had a Costco club membership…) These gluten-free local fish taquito’s from Sunny Isles Beach eating establishment Basil Park are more taquitos for adults in that they’re delicious, perfectly balanced mini-tacos. Pequeno tacos i.e. taquitos. The real revelation in this dish is the cashew “sour cream.” which with just cashews, liquid amino, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, and salt and pepper is one of the most deliciously creamy taco-toppers ever. With a nice fermented funk, this cashew cream has the texture of ricotta and basically I ate it on everything and by the spoonful. Head over to the Miami Herald to give these taquitos a try. They certainly made my lunch and proved to me that gluten-free means full of fresh, spicy flavor.
It’s happened: I’ve gone healthy. Well, as healthy as a chocolate-cake for breakfast kind of person can be. And to be truthful, I’m healthiest during the 9-to-5, kind of like a dieting vampire. Abstain from the indulgence during the daylight hours and such. But who knew that better for you desserts could taste so good? With a few simple tweaks and careful portioning, this dark chocolate wonder cake can be gluten free and quite tasty. Rich enough to satisfy. Holy cow. Holy chocolate cow, where’s the milk?
