Ginger Kreamy Kelp Noodles

From Sweetly Raw.

Ginger Kreamy Kelp Noodles

Creamy noodles, crunchy veggies, and flavored seeds - the perfect combo for me. I like lots of textures in a dish. Dehydrating them for a while makes the noodles really soft and brings all the flavors together even more.

1 package kelp noodles
Veggies of your choice, sliced such as:
Zucchini
Baby bok choy
bell peppers
Carrot
Celery
Cilantro
Chopped cashews, raw peanuts, or sunflower seeds

Raw Zucchini Angel Hair Pasta with Marinara Sauce

According to a post by Hi-Rawkus about zucchini noodles, “the thinner you shred/spiral slice the zucchini, the more apt you are to run into issues with watery zucchini pasta.” FYI.

Zucchini Angel Hair Pasta with Marinara Sauce

8 medium small tomatoes (or 4 large tomatoes)
1 red bell pepper
1-2 cloves garlic
2 sprigs basil (about 10 leaves)
2 sprigs oregano (about one teaspoon fresh leaves)
1/8 teaspoon cayenne or chili flakes
1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes
1-2 dates or a pinch of stevia
6 medium zucchinis spiralized on thin setting
Optional:
1 cup chopped bell pepper
1 cup chopped tomato
4 tablespoons chopped raw olives (black, green, or a combination of both)

Garnish:
1/2 cup chopped parsley

Blend all ingredients except the 2 cups chopped bell pepper, tomato, olives and the spiralized zucchini into a blender until smooth. You can add more sun dried tomatoes for a thicker sauce. Mix chopped bell pepper, tomato, and olives into the sauce for a chunky style sauce. Pour the sauce over spiralized zucchini.

Cecilia’s Everyday Raw Blended Soup

everydaysoup

Cecilia’s Everyday Blended Soup

3 really ripe medium sized tomatoes
1/2 of an apple (for sweetness)
1/4 of a red, yellow, or orange bell pepper
1/4 of a medium cucumber
1/4 of an avocado (for consistency)
1 green onion (white part only)
2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 small cloves garlic (or 1 large clove)
few pinches sea salt or pink salt to taste or a small handful or dulse seaweed (for saltiness)
cayenne pepper to taste

Garnish (choose all or only a few)
Your choice of chopped green onion (green part only), chopped cucumber,chopped bell pepper, chopped apple, chopped tomato, and/or chopped parsley
Sprinkle with ground pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, or whole hemp seeds
Sprinkle with dulse flakes or kelp granules
Top with sauerkraut (optional)
Drizzle with olive oil

Rough chop the tomatoes, apples, and cucumber. Then add all the ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth. I choose different garnishes everyday, whatever I happen to have on hand. The more chopped vegetables you put into your soup the more filling it’s going to be. You can add fresh herbs and seasonings to the soup such as basil or oregano for variety, whatever you have in the fridge works:)

Raw Glow’s Keep-Warm-in-the-Winter Mineral Broth

And here’s the mineral broth recipe written out. Again, not raw, but raw-supportive, especially if you live somewhere cold.

I’ve experimented with making mineral broths many different ways and I’ve found that they turn out the best when I make sure the broth has sweet, spicy, and salty elements.

Choose 3 or more from each category:

Sweet Elements

*Carrots
Beets
Sweet potatoes
Tomatoes
Bell peppers
Apples (without core)
Potatoes
Winter  or Summer squash

Spicy Elements

*Onions
Leeks
Ginger
Garlic
Scallions
Spicy Peppers (use sparingly)
Bay leaves
Thyme
Oregano
Rosemary

Salty Elements

*Kombu Seaweed
*Celery
Shitake Mushrooms
Miso Paste (optional)
Chard
Parsley
Cilantro
Kale
Collards
(any greens will do with the exception of dandelion greens which can make the broth too bitter)

You can also add any culinary or medicinal herb as well!

*Essential

Directions:

Rough chop the vegetables and put them in a large pot of water. Add a few sprigs of herbs, a few bay leaves, and at least 2-5 good sized pieces of seaweed. Kombu and Wakame work best, but any seaweed will do. Let the pot come to a boil and then simmer on low for at least 3 hours. You can then strain the broth and add a sprinkle of salt if desired. For a really clear broth you can use a sprout bag to strain it after it has cooled. Sip the warm broth like tea or use it as a base to make cooked vegetable soups and grain dishes. You can also freeze the broth to defrost for later.

Hope you enjoyed this recipe and stay warm!

Raw Marinated Asian Kale Salad

A cucumber seems to have materialized somewhere between the ingredients list and the directions. Hm.

Raw Marinated Asian Kale Salad  

Ingredients

1 large bunch lacinto kale thinly sliced (or another type of kale, collards, or Swiss chard)
Juice from 1 lime (about 6 tablespoons)
1 tablespoon Vegan DHA Flax Oil or raw sesame seed oil
1 tablespoon cold pressed olive oil
2 tablespoons chickpea miso
1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion (about 2 green onions green part only)
1 cup finely chopped bell pepper (about 1/2 large bell pepper)
handful of your favorite seaweed (torn dulse, silky sea palm, kombu, wakame… (etc)
1 tablespoon black or white sesame seeds (optional)

Make sure the greens are thinly sliced, you can even shred the kale with your food processor with the slicing disk on. Put the shredded kale in a large bowl and mash in with a fork the oil, chickpea miso, shredded ginger, and lime juice. Make sure the miso and oil is well blended. You can even massage the kale with your hands to make sure the kale is well coated.  Serve now or let the kale marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hr., it can even sit overnight. The longer it marinates the more tender the kale will be. When you are ready to serve add in the bell peppers, seaweed, cucumber, green onion, and sesame seeds. Enjoy!

Raw Vegan Sushi

Dried strips of squash (kanpyo), simmered, is a traditional vegetarian sushi filling. I’m having ideas about coming up with a raw version — butternut or kabocha, marinated with shoyu and put in the dehydrator until it’s softened up a bit, maybe. Hm. Gotta ponder this a bit further.

Also, scroll down for a source for raw nori.

Incidentally, I would be inclined to actually season the vegetable rice as if it’s real sushi rice. You gotta have that lightly sweet, lightly vinegary flavor or it’s just not sushi, IMO.

Raw Food Vegan Sushi

Raw Rice

Can use one of the following 1 half jicama
or 5 peeled and washed carrots, 1/2 a cauliflower or any other root vegetable.

Process one of the above vegetables in the food processor with the s blade until a rice like consistency is achieved and then put into a bowl.

Rawshi Filling

Julieanned or thinly sliced vegetables of your choice

Suggestions:
Avocados
Cucumbers
Bell peppers
Daikon radish
Beets
Carrots
Seaweed such as Dulse and Kombu Cilantro
Edible flowers
Chives
Green onions
Kale
Tomatoes

Raw Pickled Ginger

1 knob ginger thinly sliced with ceramic mandoline
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons raw honey

Marinate the ginger for a minimum of 1 day in the refrigerator. Will keep in the refrigerator for a few weeks.

Nori Sheets
(look for the dark purple nori sheets)

Lay a nori sheet on a sushi mat and then spread an even layer of the vegetable rice mixture over the nori sheet. Spread the vegetables in a thin line on top of the rice mixture as if you were making sushi. After you roll the “sushi” cut them into 1 to 2 inch pieces and lay them attractively on a platter. Serve them with the raw pickled ginger.
