The other night we made some fantastic raw "calamari" with tartar sauce. The tartar sauce is also great for dipping. For lunch two days in a row now, I have been going crazy with the dipping. Cucumber, bell pepper, carrot, celery, avocado, tomato and zucchini. You can dip anything and it tastes fabulous! Instead of craving a bag of chips while watching movies I've decided to crave for veggies and dip instead.

Butter on my bread

Enjoying home-made honey and oat (not raw) bread with some raw bellpepper-tomato butter. Tastes ten times better than normal butter and is loaded with Omega 3.
What more can you ask for?

Fantastic Chili

The past week we have made a couple of fabulous recipes. This chili was our first 5-star recipe. There will be no picture to this recipe, because I do not think chili, in any form, looks all that appetizing. But believe me, this one tasted just like any other good chili out there. And with a dollop of the dreamy sour cream, it was faaaantastic.

Unbelievable Chili

1 1/2 C. sundried tomatoes
3 C. chopped avocados
1 1/2 C. raw almonds
2 ripe tomatoes
1/2 C. chopped carrots
1/2 C. fresh parsley
1/2 C. freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tbs chili powder
1/2 jalapeno
1 tbs cumin
1 tsp Himalayan salt
a dash of black pepper

Soak sundried tomatoes for 15 minutes. Put tomatoes (with water) in food processor. Add the rest of the ingredients. Pulse until ingredients are chopped and mixed. Texture should be chili-texture: thick and chunky!

Serve with Dreamy Sour Cream

Dreamy Sour Cream
1 C. soaked raw sunflower seeds
3/4 C. plus 1 tbs water
1/2 C. peeled zucchini
1/4 sweet onion
1/4 C celery
1/2 lemon
2 small garlic cloves
a dash of Himalayan salt

Process sunflower seeds and water until creamy. Add the remaining ingredients and process until smooth.

An Indian Night

Last night we were looking to make something easy and quick. We got lucky and found an amazing recipe in one of Natalie Lussier's great recipe collections. It was fresh, nutritious and had a hint of Indian flavor. Ûber-delicious.

Collard Greens Pate Wrap

1 C. walnuts
1 C. chopped carrots
1 C. chopped celery
4 sun-dried tomatoes
Handful raisin
Pinch of sea salt, cumin and curry
A couple drops of olive oil

All mixed in a food processor. Spread on collard greens, and wrap them up. The result? Deliciousness.

Breakfast of Champions

Growing up I was taught: breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Words of wisdom I have taken to heart. My favorite breakfast is oatmeal. All kinds of oatmeal. Both tastes good and keeps me full. Only one problem: I've never had it raw. Luckily I have found a raw replacement.

Raw Oatmeal
1 Banana
1 Apple
handful of raisin
3 spoonfuls of almond crush (good way to use leftovers from almond milk-making)
a couple of spoons of almond milk

Blend all ingredient in a food processor. Top with ginger and cinnamon.
