View Full Version : Need Mexican Food!!!
05-10-2006, 04:47 PM
I am looking for good raw mexican food - not just guac. Any ideas? Also, I don't own a dehydrator so I'd like recipes where I don't need one. Happy to make burritos with lettuce or collard leaves, etc.

Just Like Refried Beans
1 c sunflower seeds, soaked
1 c pumpkin seeds, soaked
1 c sundried tomatos, soaked
1/2 beet, chopped finely (optional)
1 T red raw miso (optional) I either use beets OR miso
1 t cayenne, or to taste, depending on strength!
1 t celtic salt
1 t cumin
1 t chili powder
Process all ingredients in a food processor or homogenize
I usually make a double batch to make (magic wands)nori rolls and dehydrate any that is left over! You can use this as a bean pate to make a tostada (cracker base), beans, salsa or whatever you chose. I usually put a little lettuce and an avocado slice with salsa on top! It is also great with corn chips.

I got this great enchilada sauce recipe of Maw Raw's site.
2 red bellpeppers
1 cup sundried tomatos
2 tbsp chili powder
4 cloves garlic
2 tsp braggs amino acid
Put everything in the processor and blend.
we have tweaked it a bit for us. I use crushed red pepper instead of chili powder. Is really spicy alone great in burritos. Now my disclaimer is I have never tried an enchilada in my life so I have no idea if they truly taste like enchiladas but their darn good.
I have to admit when I served this at a dinner part the other night we used Ezekiel tortillas because we just did not have time to make tortillas for an impromtu party. We put a little sauce on the inside then lettuce, tomato, sprouts, avocado and onions. You could put some sauce on top but, we ate them like a burrito.
Also, try the taco meat. Use walnuts or pecans and grind them in a grinder add a dash of cumin and 2 squirts of braggs aminos fantastic. This one also on Maw's website from the complete book of raw.
Nachos are really great we used flax seed crackers added the enchilada sauce and a little taco meat. Then whatever toppings we wanted. Fantastic.
Last but not least my favorite taco salad. We use either flax seed crackers or last night we used spicy (far to spicy)lol potato chips for the base then added enchilada sauce, onions, olives, tomatos, lettuce and guacomole, and sour cream (raw of course). No one new the difference except in the crackers but, they were delighted.
Hope this helps sorry so long Mexican is one of our favorites

Last night I made nachos (I had a craving) using Alissa's nacho cheese recipe. I never dehydrate, I like it soft. Add some salsa to the mix. It was DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!

This is a recipe for Taco's I enjoy very much:
From the www.living-foods.com website
3 ripe avocados
1 lg. onion
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1 1/2 tsp cumin
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 cup sun dried tomatoes, soaked and chopped
2-3 chopped jalapenos
1 1/2 tsp sea salt
romaine or leaf lettuce
Cut the avocado into chunks, and pour lemon juice over it. Chop onion in food processor, then add the rest of the ingredients and process untill smooth and creamy.
Spoon some of the mixture into a lettuce leaf and wrap around mixture. I promise, this tastes like a taco!
You can add more or less of the jalapenos if you wish, the dish is quite spicy, but VERY good!
