View Full Version : What can I make with...?
05-29-2012, 11:46 AM
I ordered heaps of stuff from a website that had discounted "raw" ingredients. While I wait for them to arrive, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to what I can "cook" in the meantime!
Here's what I have right now:
Strawberries, blueberries, bananas, dates, apples, goji berries
Flax meal, flax seeds, cashews, pistachios, sesame seeds, oats
Cucumber, tomatoes, portabello mushrooms, white mushrooms, string beans, basil, avocado, red onion, spring onion, lettuce, collard greens
Probably just about any spice you can think of.
Any suggestions would be fantastic! Thank you!

You could make a Raw Granola using the Oats, Goji Berries, Apples, and Dates (make a Date paste out of the Dates using a few Dates and Water which will hold it together You can dehydrate it for firmness or eat it right away)!!!! Make some Cashew Milk to pour on top! YUMMMM!!!
For Lunch, make a Collard Green Roll using the White Mushrooms, Cucumbers, Tomatoes, Avocado, and Spring Onions! Drizzle with Nama Shoyu, if you have it!!! SOOOOO GOOD!!!!
For Dinner, take the Portobella and make a Marinade with the fresh Basil!!! Put it in a baggie and place the whole thing in your new dehydrator for about an hour!!! While that's warming up, take your Lettuce, Red Onion, the rest of your Avocado, and String Beans and make a great Salad!!! Put the Mushroom in the middle and enjoy the marinade as a dressing!!!!!
Instant daily meal!!!!! :dance:

Pickled stringbeans and onions can be pretty good when you ferment them yourself.
One thing to keep in mind about the cashews is that them being labled as raw does not nescessarily mean they are uncooked. "Raw" is used by most cashew nut producers to denote that they have not been roasted - but they almost all still steam or boil them to remove the outer parts. This is because producing safe raw cashew nuts in any quantity is difficult and expensive (if the shell is removed incorrectly you end up contaminating the nut with toxic residue.) There are actual raw cashews out there, but they are very expensive and very hard to find because the producers who distribute them have to use specialized tools and skilled employees to ensure high quality and safety. I think there's a couple brands that use various "cold processing techniques" - but still steam the nut to remove the shell and say they keep the time and flow low enough not to overheat it throughout.
