View Full Version : Something similar to cooked potatoes, couscous, rice, bread but with no dehydration?

I'm looking for something to please friends and family that requires no dehydration but still gives you the satisfaction like bread and potatoes.
Have anything like that?

Have you tried sprouted peas or lentils? These contain some carbs and are very filling. Sprouted wild rice might also work, although I haven't tried it.
How about parsnips cut into strips and dipped in a raw ketchup?

Alissa's "Mashed potatoes and mushroom gravy," page 289 of "Living on Live Food", is fast, simple, and very satisfying... it takes me maybe 10 minutes to put together using a food processor.
(If you haven't gotten the book yet, the main ingredients of her "mashed potatoes" are cauliflower and cashews)
I personally make two slight tweaks to her recipe for mushroom gravy...
I don't personally trust Bragg's and have to watch my salt uptake, so I substitute a 50/50 mix of low-salt tamari & water wherever Bragg's is called for (2 T in this case)
I hold out 1/4 of the mushrooms until the sauce has been processed smooth, then add them in for the last few seconds (and only pulse them quickly a couple of times), to add some chunkiness back into the texture. Then I top each serving with a little thinly sliced mushroom and some fresh black pepper for even more visual appeal.
This would satisfy a lumberjack.

1) sprouted quinoa tabouli
2) stuffing made with chopped nuts, celery, apple, marinated portobellos and seasoning
3) Mexican Rice (from rawguru.com - p.s. I don't dehydrate veggies.)
serves 2-3 people
2 tbs. chopped red onion
1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
1 large clove garlic, minced
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 cup parsnip rice (3/4 cup parsnips processed in a food processor til rice-like with 2 tbs. pine nuts)
4 tbs. minced sun dried tomtatoes (soaked for 6 hrs)
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon celtic sea salt
3 tbs. of the sun dried tomato soak liquid
How to: Put the onion, bell pepper and garlic on a telfex sheet and dehydrate it for 4 hrs. It will get rid of some of the bitterness of the raw vegetable.
Next, mix the dehydrated veggies with the parsnip rice, add tomatoes, chili powder, salt, and the soak liquid from the tomatoes. Stir this mixture until well combined. Taste and add more salt if needed. Let this mixture marinate for the flavors to develope, about 3-6 hrs in the fridge.) Enjoy!
