I have to catch up here....I even ran across a couple of photos I took of stuff I made and I can't remember what it was, because I never wrote down the recipe!! Hahaha....oh well.
First, I made up some awesome vegan parmesan:
1 cup raw almonds
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
black pepper/salt to taste
Pulse in your food processor until almost in powder form (you still want a little bit of texture though). Store in a glass jar in the fridge.
Next up, homemade sweet and sour sauce. It was all for me, since S hates this kind of sauce :)
Sweet and Sour Sauce:
3 TB ketchup (I used Organicville with agave)
2 TB Bob's Red Mill date sugar (or any raw sugar)
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/2 cup water
3 TB arrowroot (or cornstarch) mixed with 3 TB water
Put the 1st four ingredients into a small saucepan and heat on medium heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Add in the arrowroot mixed with water and stir/heat until thick.
I finally sprouted lentils for the first time! They're so good....I put them on my salads:
I recently bought two raw "cookbooks":
"Raw Food For Real People" by Rod Rotondi and "Raw Food: A Complete Guide for Every Meal of the Day" by Erica Palmcrantz and Irmela Lilja.
Both are great books. From the second one I made a few things:
Pumpkin Seed Dressing (so good!)
Indian Cauliflower Mash (a good snack)
Ranch Dressing (which I put on potatoes, because it's so good that way-not raw, I know!)
From the first book:
Hale Kale Salad (amazing!!)
(same kale salad, but with my added sprouted lentils)
I really want to add more raw meals to my diet. S doesn't like that idea. More for me :)
More stuff I've been eating:
Bob's Red Mill Steel Cut Oats (so good!!)
I recently found these "burgers" at the store and thought I'd try them, since they're soy-free:
They were pretty good...not a ton of flavor, but with the added "materials" on the sprouted grain bun, a pretty good lunch. I like the idea of a soy-free burger. Do you know of others?
