1.  Place a skillet over medium heat and add the gochujang sauce, sesame oil, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger.  Add the walnut taco meat and stir.  Turn down to low heat, cover, and keep warm.

2.  Next, prepare the vegetables.  Cut the white parts off the green onions and discard.  Slice the green parts into thin strips and place them in a bowl of ice water.  This will cause them to curl.  Place the vinegar and honey into a bowl and stir.  Add the cucumber, radish, carrots, peppers, and sesame seeds.  Stir to combine.

3.  Make the crema by mixing the yogurt with the chili sauce and salt.

4.  Warm the tortillas.  Scoop 1/8 of the walnut meat into each tortilla.  Spoon the crema on top of the walnut meat.  Add a handful of marinated vegetables and a few of the curled green onions.

5.  Finish the tacos by topping them with sprigs of cilantro, a squeeze of lime juice, and the remaining walnut meat.  Enjoy!
