View Full Version : Need a few outstanding living food recipes
09-03-2006, 07:29 PM
I will be having a lunch in about a month where 2 of the guests are on the living food diet. I wanted to surprise them by having a few dishes they could eat. They have been extremely accomodating in the past, and I wanted to do something special for them, but I was hoping to make a few recipes so good that we would all like to eat them. So can you share your really outstanding living food (raw) recipes?

I had these at a gathering a few weeks ago. Everyone loved them.
The person who made them used raw cashews for the nuts.

Tomato Summer Stacks
Recipe By :Renee Loux Underkoffler
Serving Size : 6 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Appetizers Raw
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 large tomatoes
1 1/4 cups raw macadamia nuts, soaked for 30 minutes -- (whole raw cashews can be substituted)
1/4 cup pine nuts
1 small garlic clove
1/4 to 1/2 cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon lemon zest
2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
1/4 cup finely chopped basil
1 ear corn
2 green onions, finely chopped to the top
1 Tablespoon dill
Cut the tomatoes across the width into half-inch slices. Drain the macadamia nuts. In a food processor, chop the macadamia nuts, pine nuts, and garlic into a fine meal. Add lemon juice, lemon zest, olive oil, and sea salt and blend until smooth. Add more lemon juice if necessary to blend into a smooth paste. Mix in parsley and basil gently or by hand. The chopped herbs should remain fairly intact so the spread does not turn green.
Cut the corn from the cob. Mix with green onions and dill.
Spread 3-4 Tbsp. of the spread on a slice of tomato. Generously top with fresh corn mixture, pressing it a bit into the spread. Make sure there is enough to go around! These are fantastic.
"This appetizer serves beautifully on a simple plate or on a leaf of fresh curly lettuce."

My favorite energy breakfast:
Living Oatmeal (4 servings)
2 C oats groats (steel-cut oats, often called Irish oats-- such as McCann's)
soaked 8-12 hours in cool water, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 C raisins, soaked 1 hour in water to cover, save soak water
2 c chopped fresh fruit such as bananas, apples papayas
1 tsp ground cinnamon
In food processor, combine oats, raisins and their soak water, and process until almost smooth. Add 1 c chopped fruit and cinnamon. Pulse 30 seconds to blend.
Transfer to individual bowls, top with the remaining fresh fruit and extra cinnamon if desired.
***Mari's notes-- we love this! it needs no sweeteners or milk. Our favorite mixture is half a banana and half an apple blended in, the rest on top with the addition of strawberries or peaches. You can also add some raw almonds that have been soaked overnight like the oats, then rinsed and drained, though I like them best soaked for a half hour.
