Poor Jonny’s Infatuation Tacos

1 dozen corn tortillas

2 cups corn sprouts (dried corn kernels that have been soaked and sprouted)

1 small can tomato paste (6 oz)

½ cup peanut butter

½ cup diced yellow onion

½ tsp sweet basil


Steam corn sprouts, set aside. Add 1 cup water, diced onion and sweet basil to tomato paste and heat. Add peanut butter to this and stir. Warm tortillas, (lightly steaming them works great, don’t steam but for a minute or the tortillas will stick together). Stuff tortillas with steamed corn sprouts and top with peanut onion mixture and lettuce.
