Raw Food Recipe Menu: November 1, 2015







Even though we enjoyed a beautiful, warm, sunny day here today, hard core fall is coming. This menu has some heavier, more substantial meals using seasonal produce. Pears are plentiful right now and citrus is coming into its best season soon. You should be able to score some great tasting produce at reasonable prices!

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice ($.20)

Dinner
Pad Thai

serves 2 ~ $2.28 per serving


ingredients


  • 2 medium zucchini ($1.20)
  • 1 carrot ($.15)
  • 1 bunch green onions, sliced ($.59)
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, sliced ($.50)
  • large handful mung bean sprouts ($.75)
sauce
  • 4 tablespoons almond butter ($.80)
  • 1/2 in piece ginger, peeled
  • 1 tablespoon braggs aminos or soy sauce ($.10)
  • 1 clove garlic ($.05)
  • 1 tablespoon agave ($.10)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne (or to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cashews ($.20)

directions
  1. Noodle the zucchini and carrot using a vegetable peeler or spiral slicer. 
  2. Toss with the bell pepper, green onion, and bean sprouts.
  3. In a bullet type blender, puree all the sauce ingredients until very creamy. Because of the high fat content of the nut butter, this can get quite hot while blending. Stop and let it cool for a minute if it becomes too hot for your personal definition of raw.
  4. Pour over noodles, toss lightly, serve.

Dessert
Chocolate Orange Mousse

serves 2 ~ $.99 per serving 
 




ingredients
  • 1 ripe avocado, chopped ($.88)
  • 2 bananas, chopped ($.30)
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa or cacao powder ($.60)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted

  • 1/4 teaspoon orange extract

directions
  1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor fitted with an "S" blade and process until very smooth.

  3. Chill for at least a half hour before serving.
  4. Top with a few orange sections and/or pieces of fruit and a pinch of orange rind, if desired.

  1. This looks so good! I've been eating a lot of crap lately, and lots of it, so that's even worse. So, I'm thinking I should follow one of your menus sometime soon. I remember trying some of your recipes before and it was spot on.

    Oh, I want fruits and fresh veggies =)
