View Full Version : Simple recipes besides salads?
11-24-2005, 06:06 PM
I currently don't have money to purchase all those raw food tools needed for many recipes, and wonder
what are other recipes besides salads which don't require a processor, a blender, etc.?

You could make wraps: take a collard leaf (organic is best) or even lettuce leaves and stuff it with veggies such as marinated onions, red bell peppers, tomatoes, etc.
You can get a food processor really inexpensively at stores like Walmart or Target...sometimes under $30 for a Black and Decker or Hamilton Beach model...don't need expensive items like Cuisinart. Same with blenders and dehydrators...there are less expensive options out there besides Vitamix and Excalibur.
But until then, if you're getting bored with salads and just fruit, wraps are a good choice. But you should at least have a processor or blender so you can make smoothies (which are delicious), soups or pate's. You definitely don't need all the fancy recipes to be raw, but they do come in handy when you want or need something more.
Another option, is to take the outter leaves of cabbage and wrap around veggies and bean sprouts.

Rawkinlocs, thanks so much. I'll give wraps a try. And yes, I love smoothies, especially a blueberry smoothie.

I like to make something where I chop up avocado, fresh corn (or frozen corn in the winter), sweet red peppers, cilantro, some red onion or green onion or leek, toss with lime juice and hemp oil, and a generous amount of chili powder, then hot peppers and cayenne if you're into that. It's sort of a little more than a salad. I eat it either just like that, or wrapped, or over lettuce leaves or on belgian endive. It goes over pretty well with non-raw types too.

Cube 1/2 an avocado, a banana and a mango, toss with lime juice.

Buy raw nori sheets, fill with thinly spread sesame tahini, chopped mung bean sprouts, avocado, carrot, ginger, umi-plum vinegar (just a drop seasons quite a lot), or grated daikon, whichever mix of veggies/moisture suits you.
roll up, slice, and enjoy.

you can make tabouleh from Quinoa with no appliances. You just soak and rinse the quinoa really well, let sprout for say a day or so, until there's a small tail, then mix with chopped tomatoes, fresh parsley, fresh mint if you like that in your tabouleh, red onions, cucumber if you like. To get an authentic tabouleh flavor, put a generous amount of lemon juice & olive oil. I like a little garlic in it sometimes too. and some celtic salt, pepper, etc.
