View Full Version : What are your weekly staple recipes?
04-07-2009, 04:36 PM
This is my 6th week raw and I am super excited for all the yummy recipes out there. I only eat fruit for breakfast and lunch and then once or twice a week i'll make a new dinner recipe.
I'm just wondering what you long term raw foodists make consistantly every week that you or your family love.
For me I've really perfected making marinara sauce and this weekend i made eggless eggsalad and i've been putting it on everything! flax crackers, lettuce wraps, celery etc.
What do you make?

Alissa's pad thai sauce and a raw ranch salad dressing for salads.
Banana/date ice cream and a chocolate mousse w/almond date crust for dessert/.
Nori rolls and pesto stuffed mushroom are two of my favorites.
Sunflower seed milk, rejuvelac, and green smoothies.
Almond butter, though I am trying to slowly phase it out, because even my raw labeled jar may not be raw.
I have all of these usually within a week or two.

I seem to go in streaks:
I ate the walnut taco meat wraps for 1 1/2 months straight last summer.....
I ALWAYS have a couple batches of rich cheddar dip (da bomb dip?) recipe on this site & gone raw -a couple times per week with cut up cukes, mushrooms, carrots & red peppers
I am "required" by my BF to have a batch of rawritos available at all times...:rolleyes:
I normally have a raw protein smoothie in the morning with some of my powdered supplements & a couple bananas thrown in every morning.
I have also been making the chocolate pecan bars from goneraw a couple times a month.
I do big salads often, but a lot of times just nibble here & there.
I've also been making some different crackers recipes & burger recipes to keep it interesting.
Can't wait to see what everyone's eating! :D

I seem to go in spurts too. For a couple of weeks I ate Mushroom Loaf every single day. Then for another couple of weeks I practically ate nothing but Fajitas. Lately I've been eating a ton of Alissa's Spinach Dip with Cashew Sour Cream all on top of a big juicy tomato. Plain Kale Chips are probably the only thing I make on a weekly or semi-weekly basis.

What is mushroom loaf? :o
I don't top it with anything though. Instead, I slice off pieces and use it in wraps with veggies, raw ranch or cashew cream cheeze spread.

I've been making a lot of rawritos, flax crackers & ranch.

I'm a fan of nut cheeses like this one:
1 c. raw soaked & dehydrated cashews
1/2 c. water
1/2 t. salt
1/2 clove of garlic
1/4 c. diced onion
1/4 c. diced red bell pepper or fresh pimentos
pinch of thyme
2 t. fresh lemon juice
2 T. Nutritional Yeast
Blend everything together for a few minuets till smooth.
"Cheese" is great to use as is at this point OR you can dehydrate it for a few hours to thicken it up so it can be spreadable.
I spread it in wraps with other vegis or use as a dip
Walnut taco meat every now and then
Green smoothies almost daily
Sunflower seed dressing on salads or as a dip
Zucchini pasta prepared many different ways
Flax Crackers almost every day!

Taco meat. I eat that most days. My menu is pretty boring, but I'm gonna be experimenting with some new recipes. The chilli that everyone is raving about was awesome! I am going to be making that more often as well.

Pesto Sauce is a must and I usually try to make it differently each time. Some other common recipes for me are oatmeal, pizza, salmon patties and salad dressings.
