Contributed by juleskess on goneraw.com, this was my very first raw meal dish. I have been eating Raw but I was not really putting anything into "preparing" something. This is very good and makes eating raw more interesting. The colors are lovely and the meal is healthy!
My friend Judy Montagu has a bi-weekly food column in the Jerusalem Post (weekend edition). She's always coming up with interesting recipes from all over the place (including Zaar). This recipe was featured in this week's column, and I know of at least 4 people who were so intrigued (myself included) that we had to try it out. It's really good. You wouldn't think it would be, but it is.
From Sergei and Valya Boutenko's Eating Without Heating: Favorite Recipes from Teens Who Love Raw Food. They say about it: "You can make nori rolls, cabbage wraps, spread it on crackers, stuff mushrooms, peppers, tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, and more." I have adapted it to fit in my little Oscar food processor.
I found this posted on rawfoodtalk.com. "The cumin and sea salt are very important in this recipe, so make sure you have added enough of both of these to bring out the flavor of this soup." The original recipe called for almonds instead of cashews. This was so good I had two bowls!
