Amber says of this recipe, "Between my garden and the farmers’ market, I rarely have to go to the supermarket in summer. Vegetables can be turned into crisp crackers, pizza crusts, and tostadas. Topped with plump, freshly picked tomatoes, buttery avocados, spicy jalapeños, and a burst of corn from the cob, you’ve got a gourmet meal fit for serving company. I use my Excalibur dehydrator frequently in summer to save extra produce from spoiling. This way, I can enjoy the harvest well into fall and winter. These easy tostadas will keep several months when stored in an airtight container. Choose the highest quality produce for this recipe, which is ideally made in summer when the best tomatoes and corn are in season. You can also make this more or less spicy by adjusting the amount of jalapeño."
This recipe really does taste like that thick mashed pinto bean dish we all love or have loved. Now you can experience the far more beautifying, living Superfood version – the perfect addition to a salad or a night of raw mexican cuisine! This recipe has the option of adding in some of the immuno-modulating and mood-lifting medicinal mushroom extracts, so if you have some, be sure to put them in.
I rushed home tonight to whip up this raw version of the Macro bowl I had from Aux Vivres last week, so I could share the yummy goodness with all ya’ll before the weekend. You can skip the bowl, but I wouldn’t skip the sauce. I said it before and I’ll say it again – it’s ridic.
Inspired by the classic kale & avocado salad, this dish was a hit in NY when I made it, almost on a daily basis, for everyone at The Plant.
Chipotle peppers are jalapeno that have been smoked, and so are not raw. However, I love to use them as they have such a great taste and you don’t need to use many! I have provided an alternative combination of ingredients in the recipe as a substitute to using jalapenos that will give a similarly distinctive taste.
This is a real hearty meal with a kick that’s perfect for those cold winter days!
The best raw food recipes are often the easiest to make! This is a staple recipe because it is SO healthy, involves lots of greens and veggies, and comes together in mere moments. The marinade is a classic blend of ginger, sesame, tamari and lemon juice. It is used to both marinate the mushrooms and also as a dipping sauce for your wraps. You can add in tahini or almond butter to the sauce if you would like a thicker, creamier consistency. 1 large collard leaf will usually yield enough for two smaller wraps once de-stemmed. Create as many wraps as you feel called to make!
