Raw Food Recipies

July 18th, 2009

Indulge the creative raw foodist in you, or  inspire another with a recipe.

Raw food isn’t just about salad, though you can get deliciously creative with salads and dressings. It’s important to have diversity and enjoy a wide variety of foods. This makes eating healthy and raw very satisfying.

There are a ton of raw recipe books out there, plus lots of raw foodie websites to explore. Another fun way to explore eating raw is to find people in your area who also eat raw food. Often you can attend a raw food potluck where you’ll find great ideas and get to taste different dishes to see what you like. Ask around your community health food store or vegetarian/vegan restaurants to see what you can find.

Let’s make this another raw resource. Add your favorite recipe below!

    Pulse all crust ingred together in a food processor till mixed. Press into a pie plate.

    Filling:

    ½ cup lime juice (2 lg limes)
    2 avocados
    ½ cup + 1tbsp agave
    ¼ cup + 2tbsp coconut milk
    ½ tsp vanilla
    1/8 tsp salt
    2 tbsp lecithin
    ¼ cup + 1tbsp cocnut butter (melt first)

    Mix the filling ingredients together in a food processor and pour over crust.
    *slice kiwis on top* this prevents the avocado from going brown

    Super Hero Bars

    3 cups walnuts, almonds or other nuts (soaked and drained)
    2 1/2 cups dates (can also add a banana)
    1/2 cup ground flax
    1 cup hemp hearts

    In a food processor, blend nuts and dates to a sticky consistency. Add ground flax and hemp hearts. To test the mixture, take a spoonful out and press it with your hand. If it doesn’t stick together you’ll need a bit more dates or banana so that it doesn’t crumble apart.

    Pour mixture into cookie sheet and press down with clean hands. Use a knife to cut into snack sized bars, then place a dehydrator sheet above and flip over to get the whole thing on the dehydrator sheet. Remove cookie sheet.

    Dehydrate for 24 hours.

    Variation: Add fresh blueberries if bars will be eaten within 1 week.
