This gem of a recipe was found in the 2005 cookbook, Raw Food -- Real World. NOTE: For those who might be concerned about whether or not agave nectar is a raw food, here is a quote from the internet = "To make the agave nectar, sap is extracted from the pina, filtered, and heated at a low temperature, which breaks down the carbohydrates into sugars. Lighter and darker varieties of agave nectar are made from the same plants. Because of the low temperatures used in processing many varieties (under 118°F) raw foods enthusiasts generally regard agave nectar as a raw food."
Raw foods, or living foods, are nutritional powerhouses, full of unadulterated vitamins, minerals and antioxidents. However, many raw recipes can be challenging, or need special equipment. Here's a simple one that is great for breakfast.
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!
This is a wonderful alternitive to real mayonnaise. I have been put on a strict diet and this saves the day! Makes a great salad dressing(I add a little honey), spread for sandwiches, or dip. Adapted from Raw and Living Foods.
This is popular in Spain, Mexico, Central America and the Southern USA.
I have been in search of a recipe for an alternative whipped topping for some time now. I don't want any chemicals or dairy in it. I came across this today from Vegsource.com. but changed a few things to suit my needs. This is creamy and light and absolutely delicious.
Found this recipe on the internet, to add to my small number of raw food recipes! Although the original recipe called for 2 ears of fresh corn, I've included a substitute measure of frozen corn! Preparation time does not include the time needed for chowder to chill!
