Has anyone ever made one?
Something like pot pies. I can't seem to get the crust right and how do i make the filling.
Please help me if you can:)

I recently made the Spinach and Walnut Pie from Angela Elliott's Alive in 5: Raw Gourmet Meals in Five Minutes.
Here's the recipe:
2 cups fresh spinach
1/2 cup raw cashews (it helps in the blending process if they're soaked but they don't have to be)
1/4 cup water
2 Tbsp ground flaxseeds
2 cups raw walnuts (soaked, unsoaked, doesn't really matter)
Put spinach, cashews, water, and flaxseeds in blender and blend until smooth. Set aside.
Process walnuts in food processor and press ground walnuts into a glass pie pan (this is your crust).
Pour spinach filling over crust. Let sit for 30 minutes before serving.
I added some more ground walnuts as a "topping" over my pie. : )
It was really yummy. :D

:) Oh, do you think i could substitute kale for the spinach?
I love your pie, you're a doll for posting the recipe.
I can't wait to make it, my husband will love it. He can be very picky but he's coming around to more raw.
He says i need variety but he's just slow at changing his habits:) of eating.
But he has come a long way from where he started from:)

I don't see why not, the kale would probably be good too. I'd love to hear how you and your husband like it!
Also, if you put the pie in the fridge for a little while after you make it, it makes the crust harden a teeny bit more, but even if you don't do that, it's fine. : )

That makes me want to try Alissa's sweet potato pie recipe. I'll report back!

It looks so good maybe i should make two of them:) one for me and one for dinner.
I have plenty of kale growing in my garden.
I'm so excited and can't wait to make it, i sure will let you know how it turns out.

Soaked almonds, sounds interesting.
I will also try it for the crust.
Wow, so many great idea out there:)
I'm so happy that there is no reason to go back to cooked food, ever:D

check this site out; Yum !
You can substitute like veggie mix dehydrated for the spinach and then use the same crust for a topping to make a Pot Pie.
Thank You for posting the recipe. I was hoping you would! Yea ! Joz

hey, Alissa's calzone bread might make a good pie topped and/or crust.

I made a great Broccoli-flower mashed yesterday & it was super tasty like mashed taters. Add some chopped carrots, celery, onions etc & the crust & you have a Rawsome pot pie. It is so rich the crust may not even be necessary.
Here's a pic with marinated mushrooms...
The mashed part is 2 cups broccoli, 1 cup cauliflower, 1 cup Brazil nuts-unsoaked, 2 tbsp EVOO, 1 tsp sea salt, & the secret ingrediant is 2 tbsp mac butter-probably could use any butter, but I know that's what made it so rich tasting.
Actually-next time I make this I'm going to skip the marinated shroom toppin as I think it would be better with *chunky veggies & a salad..etc.

Anyone esle with ideas for a rawsome pot pie or something like it?? I'm looking for more food ideas not sweets and desserts we seem to have lots of those. Thanks all. esp. with cold weather comming , fall veggies, hearty warming food is needed at my house:)

Juliano's uncookbook has a pot pie recipe in it.
I second the comment about the calzone recipe being good for a pot pie. I'd take out a lot of the spices though and make it blander for myself though.

Holy macro you guys are talented!!!!! A raw pot pie.... who knew :rolleyes:

Renee Loux Underkoffler has a recipe called "New Shepherd's Pie" in her book "Living Cuisine: The Art And Spirit Of Raw Foods".

I once made a flan that went down really well with sad-eaters. I can't remember the recipe though.
The base was unsoaked almonds, ground with water to make a soft crust. With chopped courgettes, onion, tomatoes and other things on top in a sauce I can't remember.
Check this out:
They are delicious!!

Please try to remember what the rest of the recipe was:)
It sounds wonderful and i would love to make it for dinner.
Thanks so much for posting.
