I melt butter ( I just guess, about 20-30 gms) add tsp curry powder or to taste, then add cashew nuts and a few raisins. Cook gently for a few minutes and take off the heat. when its cooled add 1/4 to 1/2 cup of mayo (depending on how much cauliflower is used). Add to lightly cooked cauliflower.Sometimes also add pumpkin and sunflower seeds with the cashew nuts.

I love raw sweet treats and I find this woman's recipes super yum. www.therawtarian.com.

Chef_angel404, Jan 22, 12:10 pm

Oh yes, the rawtarian is one of my favourites. Check out www.petitekitchen.co.nz she has a lot of raw stuff on her site thats rather yummy.

I had a go at making raw cheese the other day and now my family ask for it all the time. very tasty.

Chef_mumstu, Jan 23, 1:44 am

Could you post the recipe please mumstu.

Chef_frances1266, Jan 23, 2:53 am

Check out Mimi Kirk's site. She follows a raw vegan diet and looks amazing.
She is in her 70s and looks in her 40s.

Chef_frances1266, Jan 23, 5:57 pm

The recipes bev pasted are not actually raw. Raw foods are exactly that. No food to be heated above 46 degrees celcius. Pretty sure butter is not raw or vegan.

[quote=cookessentialsfor those of you that eat raw or who want to venture in to raw eating The first recipe is peanut butter cups [/quote]
Right. Healthy then.
Maple syrup, peanut butter.
Fattening.

I eat raw.
Today I had raw passionfruit, raw Black Doris plums and raw strawberries.

Even had some raw capsicum, cucumber and tomatoes for lunch.
Eat raw peas - straight from the pod - as I pick them off the plant.

But I also made STeak and Kidney pie for dinner, to be served with the cooked beans I picked and some cooked kumara.

I don't really understand the point of your post, everyone has a different view and different likes and dislikes - you don't agree - then don't post, childish anti thread behaviour isn't required and really only makes the person that makes these comments look silly.
as to raw sweet treats, anything nature made I will happily eat before processed manufactured sweets, some of which are made using gelatine made from animals. yuck so each to their own huh . have a nice day!

Raw Cheese Recipe:

Soak 150gm raw cashew nuts in a blender (just barely cover with water).

After an hour or so blend till smooth. Add Nutritional Yeast about 1/2 cup (not the brewers yeast from Binn Inn) I use Braggs which comes on a shaker type container and I get it from the health food shop.

Add salt to taste and blitz all together.

Devine.

had a very yummy carrot cake today . and delish kombucha drink. so need to get into raw

Chef_motorbo, Feb 8, 12:48 am

The following is a delicious dessert & the mixture for the base can also be used on it's own to make bliss balls :)

Strawberry Cream Pie (from Dr Libby’s Real Food Chef)
Base:
Zest of lime
6 chopped dried apricots
¼ cup sunflower seeds
¼ cup pumpkin seeds
¼ cup sesame seeds
½ cup almonds (soaked in warm water for at least 30 minutes)
½ cup dessicated coconut
¼ cup tahini (I use Pic's peanut butter)
½ tablespoon water

Strawberry topping:
100g cocoa butter (I used coconut oil)
2 ½ cup raw cashew nuts
Juice of one lime
½ cup maple syrup (or agave)
2 punnets of strawberries

1) Melt the cocoa butter on low heat, set aside allow to cool
2) Using a food processor process the base ingredients
3) Press base mix into a 20cm (8inch) tart pan
4) When cocoa butter is cool, using a blender, blend all strawberry topping ingredients together
5) Pour strawberry topping onto base, smooth out and chill until set.

Chef_winnie231, Feb 8, 2:13 am

yum winne. do you think it would work well with other toppings, e.g blueberries? and are Dr libbys books worth buying?

Im still dreaming about the raw carrot cake I ate was so delish

Chef_motorbo, Feb 8, 2:23 am



I think it would work fine with other berries :)
And the books are great but expensive. I prefer to get them out of the library when I want them.

Chef_winnie231, Feb 8, 3:31 am

good idea I didn't think of that, thanks winnie

Chef_motorbo, Feb 8, 10:10 pm

What do raw food people eat in winter? Just wondering if it would be ok for our climate as it would mean no soups, casseroles etc.

Chef_frances1266, Mar 10, 2:42 am

Raw food can be heated to no more than 46 degrees celcius.

Chef_cookessentials, Mar 10, 9:34 pm

I have started this thread for those of you that either do eat raw or who want to venture in to raw eating or perhaps use some of the raw recipes for an occasional meal or treat. The first recipe is a link to raw peanut butter cups which I know a few of you really like. I have yet to try these, however, they do get a good rating. I have a few recipes to share, including a great chilli with green lentils. Eating raw is not just about eating lettuce leaves LOL, it can be anything that is not "cooked" or heated above 46 degrees C. For some recipes, you need a good dehydrator ( something I am saving up for) but there are many that do not require a dehydrator.

Zucchini Fettuccine

2x medium courgette (Zucchini)
1/2 cup raw cashew nuts
water 1/2 cup ( but don't put it all in at once)
1 tbsp. lemon juice ( add more to your taste if you wish)
1 lge fresh clove of garlic, crushed.
nutmeg, Himalayan salt and a little ground pepper if you wish.

Using your vegetable peeler, cut thin strips of courgette into a bowl. Grind cashew nuts to a fine powder ( I use a coffee grinder especially for my nuts and seeds) to the cashews, add water, garlic and lemon juice to make a thickish sauce. Sometimes I use the half cup, sometimes a bit less. Pour the sauce over the courgette "fettucinne" and mix through well. Serve in bowls with a little grated nutmeg on the top. It is so delicious and it is made in about five minutes

Oh thank you for this Cooksessentials. just what I have been looking for.

Chef_mumstu, Nov 15, 12:17 am
