Please, dear rawbies, have any of you some ideas about the sort of things I can make ahead and freeze? Can you point me in the direction of the recipes? I have many many raw recipe books including Alissa's. Anything I make now I can't eat as I am doing the Master Cleanse. Thank you muchly.:)

this is my (easier) version of the chili recipe from this forum. Love it on several levels- it tastes wonderful, easy to make, & almost all vegetables. Store in portion-sized freezer baggies & freeze, & then, a few hours before you're ready to eat, it goes from the freezer to the dehydrator to the bowl!
Best Raw Chili from Alissas Forum
one to three cups frozen corn
¼ cup olive oil
Celtic salt to taste
Mix above together in a large bowl.
1 red bell pepper
½ medium onion
Chop each type of veggie individually in the food processor until finely chopped, but not pureed. Add to above.
½ to ¾ cup sun dried tomatoes, soaked & drained
1 Tablespoon freshly grated ginger
2 Tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
about ¼ generous teaspoon cayenne
Process to sauce consistency in food processor & add to above. Stir to combine. Heat to finger-warm in a saucepan, or place in a baggie & dehydrate until warmed through.

Thanks so much banana shake. I just happen to have all the ingredients on hand too so I will be making this over the weekend and freezing it. This means a lot to me. You've been a big help.:)

Alissa's calzone freezes wonderfully. So do the burgers, crackers. I also freeze bananas WITH peels on. To thaw. Simply put in tall glass with lukewarm water. When ready to use, like within five minutes? Cut top off a slip 'nanner out of the peel into blender or FP. It's white, not brown like they get when frozen not with peels on. I also freeze avocados whole!

Wonderful helper you are Veganforlife - I didn't realize there were so many things I could actually prepare and freeze. These will be such a treat to make ahead so I can dive right into them when I start eating again. I have been freezing bananas peeled. But if you say so, I might start leaving the peels on. Actually mine stay white even without the skin. Maybe that is because I vacuum seal them or because I use them up pretty fast. Thanks again.

Mmm, these treats sound so good artgirly,but would you please tell us which ones you actually put in the freezer? For example - are your soaked nuts in the freezer? I am wondering because several times I have soaked some nuts and then didn't use them up in time and had to throw them out. Thanks for your input. Hope you are having a fine weekend.

Do you put your crackers/cauliflower crunch/bars in the frig? Don't they get soft? I have put them in the frig out of fear that they will go bad but it would be great to keep them crunchy.
