March 24, 2013 ~ Raw Food Recipes Menu



Breakfast
Awesome Rawsome Applesauce
serves 4 ~ $1.50 per serving




ingredients
  • 6 apples, peeled, cored and chopped ($5.00)
  • 8 dates (soaked if necessary) ($.80)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice ($.20)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

In a food processor fitted with an "S" blade, process all ingredients until mostly smooth and saucy. Let it go a little longer if you like smoother applesauce, and less if you're in the mood for chunky. That's it. Any leftovers will keep in the refrigerator for up to three days.

 Lunch
Avocado Soup
2 servings ~ $1.52 per serving



ingredients

  • 1 avocado ($1.49)
  • 1 cup nut milk ($.40)
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 onion ($.25)
  • 1 clove garlic ($.10)
  • 1/2 red bell pepper ($.40)
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin seeds (pepitas) ($.30)
  • 1 tsp olive oil ($.10)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Avocado soups are among my favorite raw soups, and the options are pretty much endless.

For this soup, which makes two large servings, place a peeled avocado, nut milk, water, half the onion, and the clove of garlic in a blender. Puree until very smooth.

Add the chopped onion and pepper, and sprinkle with pepitas. Salt and pepper to taste, and add an optional drizzle of olive oil.

Lunch
Strawberry Salad
serves 2 ~ $1.95 per serving



  • 1/2 head romaine ($.95)
  • dandelion and other greens
  • 3/4 lb strawberries ($1.12)

  • 1 medium onion ($.05)
  • 1 avocado ($.88)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil ($.20)
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar ($.20)
  • 2 tablespoons agave ($.20)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Chop the romaine and greens. Toss with the onion, radish, strawberries, and avocado. Whisk together the oil, vinegar, agave, garlic, salt and pepper until blended. If you'd like the dressing emulsified, add the oil slowly as you whisk. Spoon over salads.

  3. I guess my question would be, how do I count the calories? Like the avocado soup is 2 servings and 301 calories. Is that 301 calories per serving? And I love the orange and chocolate truffles, is it 315 calories per serving of 3? Sorry, Im new to eating raw and still trying to figure things out. Thank you for the recipes, I cant wait to get to the kitchen!
