recipe by Jennifer Cornbleet
1 cup frozen mango chunks (about 1 1/2 mangoes) ($2.24)
This is a very simple recipe from Jennifer Cornbleet’s book, Raw Food for 1 or 2 People.
I really like how simple and easy her recipes are to make. I was
running low on supplies this weekend, but was still able to make some of
her recipes without having to shop. I was able to review this book, as
well as her Raw for Dessert book. I really enjoyed both, especially
since the recipes are for smaller quantities and ideal for (no
surprise!) just one or two people. I was more than happy to be able to
chat with Jenny a bit and make a few of her recipes here (recipe
instructions are Jenny’s).
Jennifer has trained at, and now teaches at, the Living Light Culinary Institute. She has a raw food company, Learn Raw Food,
and does lectures, workshops, and consultations … and her book has
sold over 100,000 copies and is one of the most popular raw books at
Amazon (yay, Jenny!).
Allow the mango chunks to thaw for 5 minutes. Place in a food processor
fitted with an S blade and process until smooth. Stop occasionally to
scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Serve
carrot pulp for this recipe. Add the minced onion, cashew mayo, dulse
flakes, and salt. Stir together and form into about four patties. Place
on a dehydrator sheet and dehydrate for about an hour. Flip and
dehydrate for about another hour. Serve on a small bed of lettuce with
cashew tartar sauce and lemon slices.
cashews and 3/4 cup water. Puree in a blender until smooth and creamy.
Make cashew tartar sauce by mixing some very finely minced cucumbers or
pickles and a bit of agave with the cashew mayo.
vegetable, and we’ve been enjoying it both raw and cooked very often
lately. Again, this is a super simple recipe. Add the bok choy,
mushrooms, red bell pepper, and onion to a lidded container or bowl.
Whisk together the olive oil, agave, balsamic vinegar, and salt, and
pour over the veggies and toss to coat.
the “S” blade, process the pineapple and bananas until very smooth. Then
finish in an ice cream maker according the machine’s directions. If you
don’t have an ice cream maker, just put this mixture in a bowl and
freeze, stirring every half hour or so.
Soak the ground flax seed in the water for about 10 minutes. Add it to a
food processor, along with the banana, agave, and salt, and blend until
very smooth. Spread out in a 6″ fan shape on a lined and lightly oiled
dehydrator sheet. Dehydrate for about an hour, then flip and peel from
the liner. Wrap into a cone shape and use a piece of crumpled paper
towel or parchment paper to hold the end open in the correct shape.
Dehydrate for another few hours or overnight.
edible bowls instead of cones. Spread the flax mixture into rounds
instead of fan shapes. Dehydrate for about an hour and flip and peel
from the liner. Then just put the shell inside a small glass bowl, so
that the flax bowl will have the shape you’d like. Put the bowl back in
the dehydrator for a few more hours, or overnight.
