What are the recipes that have made you say, omg Ill never eat SAD again, this is great! For me the top two so far are=
--butternut squash spanish rice. I had this today, and went out tonight to buy 2 more butternut squash!
1 butternut squash, pulsed in food processor until rice looking. Then stir in
handful chopped cilantro
I also added and/or could enjoy adding--tomatoes,yellow onion, scallions, garlic, bell peppers, corn, olives, avacado
---pecan truffles/brownies (you can roll them into truffles or just put it into a small ramekin, warm from the processor--yum!!! Very like a brownie sundae)
a bit of salt
tiny bit vanilla
Of course I love more plain food as well, and every kind of salad--but i want to hear about what your favorite, most fantastic recipes are=)

c'mon guys, what are your favorite recipes? You don't have to post the recipe, just the name and I'll figure it out=)
Hey Thick! I love anything with the pesto from Alissa's book. (Gus Pesto I think?) The Pesto-Stuffed Mushrooms are great.
Plus, I think the creamy soups made with the cashew/mac bases are very rich and wonderful.

For me, all kinds of salads - I love a wide variety and also raw desserts! I love anything from raw brownies, to chocolate candies, to the more gourmet like cakes and "cheesecakes" and even simple fruit smoothies. I love them all. Personally, I'm not real big on lots of the entrees, but the recipe in RawFoodRealWorld for beet ravioli with pepper sauce is fantastic. Also love beanless, zucchini hummus.
Well, as you can tell, I could go on and on but simply put, salads and desserts for me. :)

the stuffed mushroom one and Matt's Cauliflower couscous. I can eat those 2 recipes everyday for the rest of my life (or until my body finally says "ok that's enough of that" but it hasn't yet :D )
Alissa's calzone and strawberry crepes
Ani Phyo's cheesecake and ginger almond nori rolls

Mattyelee's falafel and tahini recipe is my current obsession.
I would like the specifics of that pecan-truffle-whatchamacallit-yum that was mentioned above....:o
Pie. I'm not fussy. Any pie will do. :D
06-23-2008, 10:38 AM
I'm with Domestic Goddess. PIE. Falafel!!
For me it was a raw Mango Cream Pie that made me realize I could be raw all the time.
Soaked cashews or macs, green coconut, a bit of coconut butter as binder, fresh or frozen mango, lime juice and zest and vanilla....blitzed until full and creamy and added to a flax/nut/date/flaked coconut crust. Freeze to set. Keeps in fridge for 5 days...as if it lasts this long. Any fruit can be used. Decadent I tell ya....and I lose weight eating it. The frozen mango does have an odd almost powdery texture though so I prefere fresh.
Oh, and Eggless Egg Salad with lotsa chopped veggies in it like confetti....I could live on this if served on a tasty flax bread and topped with greens.
Sugar Snap Pea

Marinated portabellas, taste like STEAK! Guacamole on anything. My frozen banana-cocoa-OJ smoothie in the AM. Eggless egg salad! Snowdrop's ranch dressing on a huge green salad w big chunky sprouts n avocado! Simple foods, but so good!! And last but not least, Medjool dates whenever I'm craving something sweet!!

Mama Earth at her finest. And mine for the pickings!!! Love it!
06-26-2008, 02:43 PM
Alissa's Creamy Avocado Dressing - delicious! I made it for the first time today and ate it on a romaine salad sprinkled with diced jalapeno. Terrific!
06-27-2008, 06:50 AM
4 cups spiralized zucchini
1/4 c. olive oil
1/2 tsp. celtic salt
1/4 c. pine nuts
1/4 c. chopped fresh parsley
I did a web search.
Oh yes, i typed in raw food recipe for Buttered Noodles and that's how i found it along with other recipes from her:)
I think i'll make it tonight with stuffed mushroom.
06-27-2008, 08:16 AM
OMG really soft, fresh dates. It's like eating caramel!!!!!
I also love local apples in the fall here in NE . They are unlike any other apples on earth. Yum.

Oh yeah, the northeast=apple country! I think the best apples I've ever had are the ones that I picked myself.

marinated portobellos stuffed with spicy coconut kale and drizzled with tamarind sauce; wilted spinach salad with pesto and quinoa; spaghetti squash arrabiata; and my own chocolate truffles that are much like what Thick describes but made with brazil nuts--very smooth and unctuous and subtle!
I think what made me realize I could be raw all the time was the range of the cuisine. That I could be just as creative a cook raw as I could cooked. Truth be told, I found myself stuck at an indian restaruant with friends recently and ate my first all-cooked meal in two months, and I was... unimpressed. I prefer the bright flavors of raw!
07-28-2008, 07:49 PM
Banana ice cream - frozen cut-up bananas in food processor with a touch of vanilla until blended, or I add cocoa powder to make it chocolate
Allissa's guac stuffed mushroom recipe with a twist. I add a garbanzo bean "hummus" with cajun seasoning layer to it with sliced tomatoes on top
07-28-2008, 07:54 PM
what are you all marinate the mushrooms in?
07-28-2008, 11:54 PM
I love Caramaca and avocado with Herbamare sprinkled on it, also zuchinni noodles spiralized with pesto, banana's over sun dried tomatoes, raw cashews, dates from The Date People. Well that's what comes to mind off the top of my head.
I marinate my mushrooms in Braggs and that's all you need and they taste divine after like 20 minutes or so.
07-29-2008, 08:16 AM
- raspberry "cheesecake" - I gave a slice of this to a co-worker (SAD eater) - and he LOVED it. The best dessert I've ever had, really. Don't remember who's recipe it is, I found it a long time ago on this board.
- Alissa's avocado chutney
- onion bread
- Alissa's lasagna
- Alissa's ravioli

marinated mushrooms from nomi shannon's the raw gourmet-
1 lb mushrooms
1/2 c evoo
juice from two lemons
2 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp salt
throw everything but mushrooms in the blender and pour on top of mushrooms- delicious!!! one of my staples.
09-19-2008, 12:52 AM
Nothing says luxurious like truffles.
09-19-2008, 03:45 AM
Thanks for the ideas for the marinades.
What type of mushrooms do you ladies use?
03-06-2009, 03:29 PM
Wow what a resource this thread is!....oh and it's so old...how'd I end up here? lol.
I must add though...besides you know, everything, one of the things that keeps me away from sad really easily is the onion bread recipe over at gone raw. I only use half the nama though which is tamari for me anyway (exchanging the other half for water), and you can add zukes and things if you want less onion...love the stuff.

Miahtay - you are right, curried tomatoes are sooo good.

Durian for me.
03-09-2009, 09:16 AM
I must say that a recent favorite of mine are nori wraps, using Ani Phyo's lemon-tahini dressing. I make the dressing and toss with some mixed greens (including herbs like cilantro and basil), slice some red bell pepper into thin strips and wrap it all together in a nori roll. SO delicious. 1 for a great snack or 2 for a meal for me. Just plain delicious.
I've found that I really enjoy nori (satisfies my sushi craving and THEN some). I am looking forward to trying Alissa's nori rolls. Having a raw dinner party on Friday, so maybe this will be one of the meal items.

This dressing never gets old and these cinnamon rolls are SOOOOO GOOOOD!
Ginger Sunflower Seed Salad Dressing
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
juice and zest of one lime or lemon
2 TB apple cider vinegar
1/2 ounce ginger root - peeled, sliced thinly
1 clove garlic
1/4 cup Braggs
1/2 cup water (thin to desired consistency)
1 TB honey or agave syrup, etc.
1 cup olive, sesame or mixed oils
2 tsp. prepared mustard
Cover sunflower seeds with water, soak overnight, or at least 6 hours. Drain, rinse, sprout a bit if desired before using.
Put it all in blender jar and blend until smooth.
1 c. oat groats, ground into flour (WARNING: These are NOT truly raw, they are steamed! If you want, you can sub with all almond flour with maybe a little ground flax or sprouted/dehydrated wheat berries or order truly raw oats from Alissa's website!)
¼ c. ground golden flax seeds (unsoaked)
2. c. dehydrated nut pulp, ground into flour (nut pulp is the stuff you have left over after blending and straining nut milk)
¼ c. olive oil (or other light oil)
A drizzle of honey or agave nectar
Dash of sea salt
Water – added 1 TBS. at a time to help it turn over and until it becomes a soft, workable dough (exact measurements to come!)
Mix the two flours together and set aside approximately ¼ cup of the flour. Process the ingredients in food processor, adding a little water at a time to get it moving. You want this to be a dough-like consistency and not too watery.
Form into a ball, gently knead the dough and roll out using rolling pin and some of the flour you set aside. Roll out thin. TIP: Make sure the dough isn't too stiff when you take it out of the processor...kinda like a really thick batter. Plop onto some unbleached parchment paper and let it rest for about 10 minutes and it will be more workable. I like to roll the dough out ON the parchment paper so that when it's time to roll it up, it's easier and not sticking on the surface.
Filling: (Note - if you don't want to use the nuts, you don't have to. Just blend the filling ingredients and spread on the dough before rolling out)
½ c. dates
1 ½ c. of pecans and/or walnuts (I use both – however, nuts are optional)
¼ - ½ tsp. sea salt
½ c. raw honey or agave nectar
2 Tbs. cinnamon (or more to taste)
Pulse chop the dates and nuts in food processor. Remove to bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Spread evenly on the rolled out dough. Roll up in jellyroll fashion and slice ½” thick rolls. Place on teflex sheet and dehydrate until warm. Top with frosting (below). Can be stored in refrigerator and warmed in dehydrator later!

My new favorite soup-- Cream of tomato http://www.rawfreedomcommunity.info/forum/showthread.php?t=1827
I was lucky to buy 20# of field ripened tomatoes for only $20 and they made this soup so amazingly good. I ate it for several meals in a row it was so great. I highly recommend it!

Rich Cheddar dip (recipe on here - Da Bomb - I think)
Rawritos - My boyfriend LOVES these.....I go through wanting them, then not so much - same with different flax crackers
Raw Food Real World - Jalepeno corn chips - sometimes I make them into tortillas for wraps
A bbq burger recipe that I seem to have lost - that I hope to find again....:rolleyes:
Zucchini pasta with marinara sauce - I will be having this tonight
Stuffed portabella caps with avo, sprouts, tomatos & a little braggs sprayed on top
At one time (for like a month or two...) I ate walnut taco meat with rich cheddar sauce everyday....
And some chocolate pecan bar from Goneraw website - I think I almost cried a little when I ate this - :p
There's still a ton of recipes I'd like to try, but I go through my simple phases - I just came out of one - I ate only salads & smoothies for the last 2 months - no recipes.
07-16-2009, 09:23 AM
Beet raviolis... thinly sliced beet skins stuffed with butternet squash slightly sweetened with agave? served with a raw "alfredo" drizzle of pureed cashews. Topped with fresh diced tomatoes and walnuts. To die for!
Asian dumpling "stir fry"... Asian dumplings made with seeds(like little seed burgers) served over carrots, celery, sprouts, red peppers, summer squash, peanuts in an amazing sweet brown liquid and drizzled with a spicy casher cream sauce. Just had it at my new little raw cafe. SOOOO good. If anyone can figure out the raw brown soy-style sauce, I'd greatly appreciate;)
Tacos... dehydrated flax tacos with fresh veggies and served with fresh guac.
07-19-2009, 01:17 PM
The buttered noodle recipe sounds like just what I'm craving right now, thanks!
07-20-2009, 04:18 PM
Oh my gosh - the buttered noodle recipe is divine. I added a little fresh dill. There was a beautiful zucchini, the first in our garden, and it was begging for me to eat it. I had everything at room temp, and after spirooling the zucc I wrapped it in paper towels for a bit to draw out water. It was soooooo good.
10-14-2009, 08:45 PM
Bumping. Great ideas for newbies - and oldies!
10-15-2009, 08:08 AM
I really love lettuce wraps with guacamole spread with any veggies as the fillings. I know it sounds too simple. I was blown away by the taste of goodness from this simple wrap! It replaces any sandwich cravings that I've had in the past.

banana ice cream topped with pecans

When I make anything from Sweet Gratitude, I think I could never eat SAD ever again. I always keep the SG fudge and brownies in my freezer. The german chocolate cake is the best I've ever had...including SAD versions.
10-21-2009, 09:09 PM
Anything recipe from Sweet Gratitude that I've made has been ultra luscious!
The cheesecakes are really easy to make and are divine! Yumm!!:p
But my new favorite entree is Alissa's own raw Lasagna. I am totally hooked on the flavors! Sensational and rich!:p
I also love Matt Kenney's Baked mac and Cheese. (recipe on RFT posted by Eva)
I also love snowdrops Sesame unChicken with sweet and sour sauce. Delectable!!
