Raw Cannoli Wrapper

Ingredients
  • 1 cup sprouted wheat berries
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 2 bananas
  • 1/8-1/4 cup water
Put the wheat berries, honey and bit of water in the food processor and blend until smooth. Then put in the 2 bananas and blend some more. This should be the consistency of somewhere between a pudding and a smoothie. Spread onto a teflex sheet or parchment paper - this won't cover the whole sheet - but about 3/4 of it. Double the recipe if you want to extend it over the whole sheet. Dehydrate at 105º for several hours. Flip after about 3-4 hours or so. Cut into 3 x 4" rectangles - or whatever size you want to make your crepe or cannoli shells.

Zucchini Pasta with Marinara Sauce (Linda's version)

An oldie but a goodie. This is a great, fresh and juicy recipe perfect for summer.

Tomato sauce: • 1/2 c sun dried tomatoes, soaked for 1 hour or more • 2 soft dates (medjool dates are the softest, remove the pit) • 2 cloves garlic (Use 1 clove if making for kids) • 2 c tomato, chopped • 1 1/2 T dried oregano • 1 t celtic sea salt (a good pinch will do) • 1/3 c olive oil • good handful of fresh basil Process in a food processor until smooth. Pasta: • 2 medium size zucchini Cut the zucchini in half or thirds (depending on length of zucchini) and spiral slice into angel hair pasta. Toss in bowl and set aside.

Assembly Keep the zucchini separate from the marinara sauce until you serve. The zucchini is very watery and will water down the marinara sauce if you put the two together. So serve the zucchini pasta in a bowl by itself and serve the marinara in a bowl by itself. Then simply add zucchini pasta on a plate and add a good dollop of marinara sauce on top. Eat and enjoy! This recipe is great with 1/2 avocado sliced on top or some fresh olives. YUM! This is super fast to make and it is so enjoyable to eat - it bursts with flavor and juiciness!

Walnut Stuffed Peppers

http://www.thevegetariansite.com/ This pâté is lovely inside a juicy red pepper, but remember that you can do all sorts with the pâté, such as spreading them on vegetable rounds, use as a dip with crudités, or use them as a nori stuffing. Serves 4. Ingredients
  • 8 red peppers
  • 4 cups of walnuts, shelled
  • 4 sundried tomatoes, soaked in water for 2-6 hours
  • 2 small red onions
  • 2 courgettes (zucchini)
De-seed, stalk and chop 4 of the peppers, and put them in a food processor. Add the walnuts and sundried tomatoes and process. If you have a Champion juicer or L'Equip Visor juicer/processor, use that. If you don't have one, then process the mixture until it's a pâté-like texture. If you have a hand blender, transfer the mixture to a bowl and finish it off with the hand blender to get a smoother finish. Finely chop the onion and mix this into the pâté, but don't blend it. Transfer equal amounts of pâté into each pepper. Replace the lids, and place each on a serving plate. Spiral slice the courgette and put equal amounts around the peppers. Finish off by adding some extra finely sliced sundried tomatoes, a few fresh coriander leaves, some walnuts and a drizzle of olive oil to the courgette. (Variation: You can put the stuffed peppers into a dehydrator for around 6 hours which will slightly soften the pepper. Add the courgette after dehydrating.)

Thai Salad with 'Peanut' Sauce

Well, I've modified this recipe that I found off the goneraw website again! If you haven't gone to that site, you should - lots of good recipes. Of course I have to change every recipe that I get... Ingredients: Dressing
  • 1 cup really raw, unpasteurized almond butter or 1 cup really raw cashew butter
  • 1/2 cup filtered water
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup raw agave or 2-3 T yacon syrup
  • 3 T sesame oil 3 T Nama Shoyu or Bragg's liquid aminos
  • 1 1/2 inches ginger, peeled
  • 3 cloves of garlic pinch of cayenne
Put all the ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth and creamy - adjust the water until it's the consistency you like it. If you make it alone as a dressing, thin it out more. If you are adding to the salad below, the water from the veggies will thin it out so keep it somewhat thicker. Salad:
  • 2-3 medium carrots, sliced in spiral slicer or mandolin
  • 1/2 of a small purple cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1 daikon radish, sliced in spiral slicer or mandolin
  • 5 green onions, chopped or substitute for 1 small yellow onion, peeled & chopped
  • 1 red pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 zucchini, sliced in spiral slicer or mandolin
Optional Additions:
  • portobello mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped raw jungle peanuts
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Bok Choy, chopped
Put all the ingredients in a bowl and pour some of the dressing on top (put as much or as little as feels right to you.) Mix and enjoy! When using the spiral slicer or the mandolin, you'll really make a gorgeous salad. The longest part of this recipe is the washing and chopping of the veggies but it's worth it!

Raw Food Alternative to Bacon

By Linda Wooliever Makes around 30 to 40 strips - depending on how large your egglplant is Ingredients:
  • 1 large eggplant, peeled
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 3-4 teaspoons Umeboshi paste
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar
Instructions: Peel the eggplant and cut into quarters length-wise. Thinly slice your eggplant, lengthwise and put on a cookie sheet, laying out flat. Take some salt and sprinkle on the eggplant to sweat the eggplant - this helps to soften it up a bit. It's not necessary but it's something I always do. Let the eggplant sweat for an hour or two and then rinse off the salt if you wish. Transfer eggplant to a big bowl. Put the remaining ingredients in the VitaMix and blend together. If you don't have umeboshi paste, you can experiment with a drop of liquid smoke and add a touch of apple cider or rice vinegar (not raw). Blend for just a few seconds and pour of the eggplant and stir to make sure it all gets marinated. Let it sit for another hour or so. Place on dehydrator sheets. Dehydrate for about 8 hours at 105 degrees and then turn over to dehydrate more if need be. The longer it dehydrates the crunchier it gets. You still might have to dab it down with paper towels just like you do with regular bacon. We ate a raw BLT last night and I also tore it into pieces and put on my salad. It's amazing how much it looks like regular bacon. The raw BLT was just putting some raw mayo on a piece of red leaf lettuce, adding some tomato and some raw bacon. We folded it up and ate it. It's pretty good!
