What's Your Favorite Dinner Entree?
Hello....I'm new to the Forum but been eating raw since October. Lost 10 pounds the first month!
I'm needing some more entrees for dinner recipes that are good. Would love your feedback as to your favorites.
I've usually finished most of my eating for the day at dinner time. I may have a banana, sometimes in the form of ice cream, or some dates and a few nuts.

marinated collard leaves: chop leaves into thin strips, marinate in olive oil, a dash of Braggs or soy sauce, a good squeeze of lemon juice, a dash of garlic powder, salt & pepper. Sprinkle on hemp seeds or sesame seeds. Can be eaten alone or mixed into a salad.
Raw tacos or eggless egg salad
Alissa's pesto stuffed mushrooms (except I use large portabella mushrooms instead of button).
they are sooooooo good!!!!
and a big salad on the side with her honey/mustard dressing recipe (except I use agave instead of honey).
best dressing ever!!!!
and a piece of Ani Phyo's apple pie (best apple pie recipe there is)!!!
to me, that's a great meal!!

I love raw soups. They are so easy, and often they are even better the second day. I have made zucchini and avocado soup with dill, and also corn and red pepper soup with curry flavor. Take any vegetables, throw in an avocado and some spices, maybe a little lemon juice, some oil, and blend away.
I also love a raw marinated salad of cauliflower, tomato, and mushrooms, with any kind of marinade you like. Let it sit a few days--it just gets better.
Since during the day I have 1 quart of green smoothie and a huge green salad in addition to fruits, cut up veggies, and what ever else I eat each day... I find at dinner time I love to have dessert! Whether it is cheezecake, or Alissa's Black Forrest Cake, Carrot Cake, or even something simple like Banana Vice Cream with Chocolate sauce... it really hits the spot and I can enjoy it without any guilt!
