View Full Version : Your fav non-dehydrated meal
04-04-2007, 10:26 AM
I'm new at this. 4 days today. I'm absolutely loving it. I have a cheap dehydrator, but it doesn't have a setting. So until I can get a new one I need to make meals w/o it. What are your favorite recipes?
Thanks for helping me stay raw!

Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms
Dice a tomato, some onion and mash up with an avocado, pile it on top of a portabello mushroom, add some Braggs on top and some on the plate to let the mushie marinate...let sit for 5-10 min, then eat away...mmmm my fav.
I LOVE zucchini noodles with different sauces. So easy and so satisfying. What I do it either slice a zucchini with a veggie peeler and leave them wide and thin or you can stack them and slice them into linguine-type noodles. I then place them in a strainer and sprinkle with some salt. I mix the salt in with my hands, this releases some of the liquid of the zucchini and takes away the stiffness, makes it more noddle-like. I made the below recipe the other night and it was fantabulous. Sort of like a meat sauce. You can also use pesto or salad dressings, the skies the limit. For pesto, I love Gus' Pesto from Alissa's book... YUM
1 ½c sun dried tomatoes
2 soft dates
2 cloves garlic
2c tomato, seeded and chopped
1 ½T dried oregano
2t salt (depending on how salty your s/d toms are)
1/3c olive oil (I use about 1-2 T then use the soak water form sdt)
2T lemon juice
* Process in a food processor until smooth.
Walnut Meat Layer
1 ½c walnuts soaked 1 hour or more
1c sun-dried tomatoes, soaked for 1 hour or more
2T dark/brown miso (I used 1T white miso)
2t dried oregano
2t dried sage (I didn't have any)
5T nama shoyu (I used 1T)
½t cayenne pepper (I used chili powder)
2T olive oil (I used 1 T hemp oil)
1T agave nectar
1t sea salt
* Grind all ingredients in a food processor, leaving the mixture slightly chunky.
As you can see I made some changes but this was so good. I love the tomato sauce, the oregano really makes it nice.

fruit salad with mint

is a salad with lots of tomato, avocado and/or guacamole, and the rich cheddar sauce. A dab of olive oil, pinch of sea salt, even a splash of apple cider vinegar. I like raw zucchini on it, too, sliced very thinly. Sometimes I'll put in a quarter of raw onion, but lately haven't wanted that as much.
Sometimes I'll make a really thin peach or raspberry smoothie to drink along with it. Yum!

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!

I like making collard rolls. Just get some big collard leaves and wrap up what you like in them. I put avacado, sometime a pate, and veggies. I also love big salads with lots of veggies in them. Also the ceasar dressing in Alissa's book is great in a salad with raisins in it.
Chop up a couple of tomatoes, some coriander, mash in an avocado and sprinkle with some flavouring either cajun or thai spice etc. Squeeze in a little lemon juice and load some romaine lettuce leaves and eat like a sub...drippy and yummy :)
