I just started eating Raw this week and I am going grocery shopping tonight. I am still waiting on Alissa's book in the mail and I have not yet ordered a dehydrator. What are some of your favorite recipes that do not require a dehydrator?

Just creating a magnificent salad with tons of colors and textures, with some evoo and celtic salt and sesame seeds.
Nori wraps. Stuff 'em and then stuff 'em in your mouth! :p
Of course green smoothies...:D

Nothing I make uses a dehydrator.
Salsa (or just tomato & onion can work)

I just made carmel apples and cocoa covered apples and bananas.
for the carmel apples I blended dates (20) and dried apricots (8) with some raw honey and a spoonful of cashew butter and spread it over 4 giant apples. I thought it was better when they were rolled in coconut, but the kids liked them plain.
for choco-covered apples and bananas I just let some coconut oil heat up in some warm water (think double boiler method) and added some agave and cacao. I had put the cut up apples and bananas in the freezer for a bit to get them super cold, then dipped them in the coconut oil mixture and the stuff coated the cold fruit.

Portabella mushrooms stuffed with avocado. I also like avocado with salsa.
Alissa's Almost Tuna recipe is pretty easy and I make that a lot.

1. smoothies (love pear/frozen banana/parsley/water & agave or stevia) (also love celery, frozen banana, parsley, agave or stevia & water)
2. fruit salad - strawberries, grapes, kiwi, peaches, (whatever you like)
3. cole slaw - cabbage or bok choy with carrot, onion, red bell pepper, tomato, raisens, dressing made of spoonful of tahini/cider vinegar/lemon/olive oil/agave & dash of cayenne.
4. quacamole with tomato & cucumbers
5. fruit leathers are good if you have a dehydrator. Just blend a very ripe banana or two and spread on dehydrator tray - also good with cacao nibs in it.

Get a big romaine lettuce leaf, put guacamole in the center, add chopped veggies of your choice (scallions, cucumbers, celery) and then roll it up like a burrito. Add some raw salsa if you have it.
Take a jicama (or parsnip), grate it or use the food processor until its ilke rice, add some Noya Shamu, then put in some red peppers, grated carrots, scallions, snow peas, etc. to make a stir-fry like entree.
Chop up apples, celery and walnuts. You can also add this mixture to some greens and squeeze lemon over it.
Make some guacamole, cut corn off the cob, mix it in, and stuff it in a pepper.
And there's always my old reliable, Alissa's mock salmon pate (celery, red pepper, walnuts and some onion in the food processor.

OOOH! My favorite is a giant fruit salad-banana, oranges, strawberries, green apples, any kind of fruit with walnuts or pecans drizzled w/honey or agave and topped with raw chocolate chips. YUMMO!
