Thumbs up Raw - A few good recipes.

I thought I'd add a few of our families favorites in 1 thread.
__________________________________________________ _____________
Mango Avocado Salad - Courtesy of: We Like It Raw



Ingredients
  • 2 Ripe Mangoes, peeled, pitted and chopped
  • 1 Large Avocado, peeled, pitted and chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon Lime Juiced
  • 2 Teaspoons Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Cilantro Leaves
  • 1 Tablespoon Black Sesame Seeds
Instructions:
Hand mix all of the ingredients together and serve.


This is so simple and easy to make. Because it's so light and fresh - it is delicious as an afternoon snack.

Stuffed Mushrooms - Courtesy of: Raw Foods

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 Cup pine nuts
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 Cup fresh cilantro, packed leaves, chopped
  • 1/3 Cup fresh basil, packed leaves, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 Cup tomato, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoon Braggs or to taste


Instructions:


Put all ingredients into a food processor, except the tomatoes and mushrooms, and pulse chop several times. Stop to scrape down the sides and repeat. Add the tomatoes and continue to pulse chop until just blended. Keep a texture to apesto, it should not be a puree. Remove stems from mushrooms and stuff the filling into the cap of the mushroom. Place on a dehydrator sheet and dehydrate at 105 degrees for 2-4 hours.




This is great for Mushroom lovers like myself! Preparing it only takes about 5 minutes. The dehydrating process is what takes the longest, but boy are these stuffed mushrooms worth it!

Stone Sushi - Courtesy of: Raw Foods



Ingredients:

  • 1/4 bell pepper (not green), julienned
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh jalepeno, julienned
  • 1/2 avocado cut into thin strips/wedges
  • a few sprigs cilantro
  • 3 marinated sun-dried tomatoes cut into strips
  • 1 sheet nori (dried seaweed)
  • a bit of pickled ginger cut into small strips
  • 2 tablespoons nama shoyu (cold processed organic soy sauce)
  • rice vinegar (optional)


Instructions:


Cut the nori with scissors into 1" wide strips and then cut them in half so you have a bunch of 1"x4" strips. Keep them dry until you're ready to use them.

Place one (shiny side down) on a dry surface and place a piece of bell pepper across it near the bottom so it forms an upside-down crucifix (this is not an antichrist meal, it just works best like this)then pile on the avocado, sun-dried tomato, pickled ginger, or what-have-you in the same fashion. Stick a SMALL chunk of jalepeno in there somewhere. Place a small sprig of cilantro (this is VERY important) so that it may stick out once it's rolled up. Now just tightly roll it up away from you and seal it with a nama shoyu moistened finger and place on a platter seam down. After you use up all the nori, you might have some scraps left over which you can make into a good little side salad sprinkled with rice vinegar. Pour the nama shoyu into a small, shallow cup or bowl and you're all set.

Substitute slices of plum, apple, dill, or bear as you see fit.

This is just an example: http://www.detoxyourworld.com/acatal...tor_sheet.html


It's just a thin flexible sheet to help catch the drips or you can use it to roll things up and place in the dehydrator.

I had the Mango Avocado salad for lunch today. It was delicious!!! Then I pureed it, and Emily used it as a dip for her apples.

I would definitely make and serve this to a baby.
