Thanksgiving.. The Best Time To Be Raw!

Holidays… Especially those revolved around food are my absolute favorite time of year! This is when I get to show off to all the SAD eaters how awesome it is to be raw and how pretty and appetizing raw dishes look! I know it is not that hard to make a dish look prettier than a dead carcass, but the level of amazing raw veggies can look on a plate is truly mind blowing. Everything is so bright and lively looking! And the best part is you are bright and lively looking when you are done eating instead of dead on the couch like a sack of potatoes! We don’t need to feel like crap or worry about the holidays! It’s a joyous time!!

This thanksgiving I am making the following:

-Italian style Bree with garden flax crackers
-stuffing
-mashed potatoes
-cranberry sauce
-chick-un Parm
-pumpkin spice roll

I went shopping today for all the ingredients and I will post up every recipe! All of these items I am making is enough to serve 5 or 6 and it cost me under 100$. I don’t want to hear ever that its too expensive to eat healthy! Everything was also purchased organic and local when possible!

Here is a recipe for super easy 3 minute cranberry sauce:

8 oz Raw Cranberries
15-20 softened Diglet Dates
Juice from half a lemon
1/2 tangerine
Pinch cinnamon
Pinch sea salt
Optional- diced jalapeño

Blend all ingredients except tangerine and jalapeño in food processor until desired consistency is reached. Add in diced tangerine and jalapeño and mix by hand. Let sit in refrigerator over night to let the tastes blend together. Done!

I will keep posting as I am making!

These are super easy, super fun, and super yummy!

Ingredients:

Wrap:

  • 2 large collard leaves

Nut Meat:

  • 4 cups walnuts, soaked and sprouted 
  • 1 packet taco seasoning, or
  • chili powder, cumin, coriander and cayenne to desired taste. I use roughly a teaspoon of each, except 1/2 teaspoon of coriander.
Combine all ingredients in food processor and mix until chunky, but blended consistency is formed.
Sour Cream:
  • 2 cups cashews, soaked and sprouted
  • 1 fresh squeezed lemon
  • 1 tsp coconut aminos (can use soy sauce in replace of)
  • sea salt to taste
  • 2 cups water
Add all ingredients except water in high powered blender. Slowly add water until thick but creamy consistency is formed.
Creamy Avocado Sauce:
  • 1 Florida Avocado
  • 2 tablespoon chipotle seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon cacao powder
  • Fresh lime juice from half of a lime
  • salt to taste

Combine all ingredients in high power blender until creamy.

Filling:

  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 large tomato
  • 1/2 onion
  • cilantro
  • wilted spinach (4 cups spinach, 3 tbs olive oil, 1 clove chopped garlic, 1/2 teaspoon sea salt. rub with hands or tongs until wilted)
  • romaine lettuce
  • favorite hot pepper

chop all ingredients and stuff inside collard leaf.

To properly fold collard:

cut out thick part of stem.

fill ingredients in the center of the leaf.

fold over right side, tucking the back, loose part of the leaf where the stem used to be.

Fold over the top of the leaf so the filling is now pocketed.

Rotate burrito to the right, and roll burrito over so it is assembled.

Nori Rolls! February 20, 2012

This is a super fast and simple recipe and easy to take with you! Nori will bring you many minerals and has many health benefits… something a regular wrap does not have! Instead of using a flour wrap that has nothing to offer, use something that will actually add something positive to your well being!

 

Ingredients:

- 1 Nori Sheet

- Tahini

- Bell Pepper (not green! these are unripe and very harsh!)

- Avocado

- Sprouts

- Watercress

- Cucumber

- Favorite green

- Hot pepper (optional)

 

 

 

Lay nori sheet so shiny side is face up. Spread a thin layer of tahini on the sheet , especially on the edge. This will be your glue! Towards the opposite edge  of the sheet lay your greens down, followed by slices of the vegetables. I usually lay down the avocado first and add the peppers and cucumber. Top with sprouts and watercress. Now to roll it up! Start by folding one end of the nori over the food in it.  Tightly begin to roll it up and seal with the tahini. Cut with a serrated knife and dip in your favorite sauce! These are incredibly filling due to the high vitamin and mineral content!

This is incredibly tasty, way better than eggs, and better for you!

Ingredients:

-1 cup sunflower seeds

- 1 cup Almonds

- 2 tbspn Turmeric

- 2 tbspn EVOO

- salt to taste

- veggies of choice (i used green/red peppers, tomatoes, cilantro, scallions and broccoli)

- Spinach leaves

- i also added Cayenne pepper.

- use some Green Sauce to top it off!

Put sunflower seeds, salt, EVOO and turmeric in FP and pulsate. add around 1/4 cup water so that it sticks together but still has texture. This is your “egg” base. Chop your veggies and put them in a bowl along with the “eggs”. mix it together. Serve over a bed of spinach or you can mix the spinach right in. If you would like to wilt the spinach, put it in a bowl with some EVOO and salt for a few hours.

(the base of this recipe is from Ani’s kitchen)
