View Full Version : Supper Ideas??
03-01-2006, 08:32 AM
It seems to be around supper time that I have most of my troubles staying raw. As it is right now I have a food processor, a blender and a juicer.
I don't want to run out and get a dehydrator (for the cost of it, plus the fact that I am a person of convenience who doesn't enjoy cooking or uncooking :p , as well as the fact that a lot of ppl tend to gravitate away from complex foods into a more simple diet over time... and I don't need another appliance that just sits there collecting dust).
Does anyone have any supper ideas for me? I know my options are salad, smoothies... others??
P.S. I really loved catalina dressing for my salad... and miss it tremendously... anyone have a good substitute??

I posted this as Russian dressing, but it's basically the same as catalina. I can't tell the difference:
1 small ripe tomatoe
1 tbsp honey or agave
1 tbsp cider vinegar
1/2 tsp Celtic sea salt
1 clove garlic, minced
Blend it well in the blender and pour it on your salad.

Rowan, how long will this dressing keep in the fridge? It sounds great, can I make it a day ahead?

Thanks Rowan... I think I'll have to cut down on the garlic (I can't seem to handle Garlic, Lemon, Lime, etc. yet). But I hope I learn to love these things at some point.

Hmmm... I'm trying to think of things that would work for you. I know you said that most greens taste bitter to you, are any of the letucces less bitter? I love doing a nut pate, food processor can make those, wrapped in a collard green with some sprouts. Or raw hummus wraped with sprouts. You don't need a dehydrator for any of the wraps. If you like mushrooms you can take the large protabella caps and stuff them with various things, avacado, sprouts, onions, tomatos, etc. Marinate the caps if you want them to have more of a 'cooked' taste to them. Just toss them with some olive oil, celtic sea salt, and any spices you might like. If you use braggs that works too with the olive oil.
Nut pate's are easy to make, just take a handfull or two of nuts and/or seeds and toss them in the food processor. If your going to use them right away you can use water, if not add some oil, then what ever spices or veggies you want. Experiment, my favorite came from tossing sunflower seeds, tomatos, basil, a dab of water, and a clove of garlic together. Qutie good!

Oopss forgot something else.. puddings are also a good dinner too. You can take firm fruits like papayas, bananas, mangos, strawberries, young coconut meat, and whril whatever flavor combo that strikes your fancy that day together. Those are nice too.

Glad you asked! I have been thinking along the same lines. Supper time is different when you are raw :)
I like to make a really nice veggie plate and hummus dip.
I like Miso soup.
Thai springrolls are great!
Have fun and just go with what you feel like as long as its raw :)

made nori rolls tonight. Lettuce or other greens for "taco shells" and then whatever fillings you feel like is fast too. REally, I could be raw without a dehydrator and STILL have so much to eat. But I do like having crackers to get me through the transition easily-it does help, I guess.
