My raw eating journal. Week 2. Day menu

I have not been able to update my Raw Eating blog entries for a while. Since my last update I have had 3 more "raw" days. So I have collected a lot of new recipes to share!

Here are some of them:

Breakfast
  
Peaches and nectarines tartlers



Ingredients and method of preparation of the base mixture for the tartlers is the same as for the Muesli balls from this entry. Shape the balls into the tartlers (I used the same method here), top the bases with chopped peaches and nectarines, sprinkle with a few drops of agave nectar.

Green Shake 
Made from fruit and greens of your choice ;)



Lunch

Nori rolls


Ingredients:
* From the original recipe from Mat Amsden's book
4 sheets raw nori (black are raw, green are toasted)
4 lettuce leaves
1 1/2 carrots, chopped lenghwise
1 1/2 cups shredded daikon
1 avocado, sliced
8 sprigs of spring onion
2 cups clover sprouts
1/4 cucumber, cut lenghwise
1 red bell pepper, cut lenghwise thinly
* I have not had daikon and sprouts but it still turned out lovely! :)

Method:
Lay out nori sheets on clean, dry surface. Arrange lettuce leaves on top of each sheet so it completely covers the half of the sheet that is closest to you.
Arrange all your veggies along the lengh of each nori sheet, about 2cm from the end closest to you.
Fold the edge of the nori closest to you over the filling. Gently roll each nori away from you, tightly and evenly, into a firm snugly wrapped roll. Seal the edge with water. Cut each roll into 2 pieces with a sharp serrated knife.

Dinner

Zucchini Alfredo Pasta
This is my absolutely favourite recipe so far. So yummy!
From Mat Amsdens's book.


Ingredients:
3/4 cup Thai coconut water
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 tsp salt
1 cup mixture of raw pine nuts and cashews
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
6 zucchinis, peeled with potato peeler into pasta like stripes
* The texture of zucchini noodles improves when they are left to sit in the open air at room temperature for about 6 hours

Method:
In a blender blend all the ingredients except the zucchini noodles and blend until smooth.
Put the zucchini noodles into a bowl, pour the Alfredo sauce over the noodles, mix well and serve!

    To Verde Farm: Raw food is VERY yummy! I did not fully understand it until I tried it myself. My advise, try zucchini alfredo pasta, it's delish! Great to see you again!

  5. Love your blog Katerina - I'm going to enjoy hanging out with you here! I love sushi (although I have a shellfish allergy so have to make sure I only go for the non-shellfish variety) & have always wanted to have a go at making my own. Thanks for stopping by mine too!
