for this blog on Sunday, and more often than not have no idea what I’m
going to make until that morning … and that’s how it is most other
days, too. I’m just not much of a planner. I was feeling pretty
uninspired this week, too. And, I was running low on lots of things, and
running out of others. But that’s what’s amazing about raw and vegan
foods; with just a few ingredients and the smallest amount of
inspiration, good meals can be made.
pancakes I’ve made here, but heavier on the buckwheat. In a food
processor fitted with an “S” blade, process the buckwheat, banana, flax
seed, olive oil, agave, and salt until pureed. This takes about three

a blender, combine all ingredients and pureed until very smooth and
creamy. Use as much as necessary for the desired consistency. This soup
would be awesome in a Vita Mix or a similar blender, but any blender
will work … although it may take a few minutes. If it’s not smooth
enough, press through a wire mesh strainer.

OK, mango isn’t in season. It’s technically never in season where I live. But, oh my, it sure is nice to have.
Combine all the dressing ingredients in a bullet type blender and pureed

more banana ice cream. I do love this stuff and it really does seem to
have almost endless possibilities. I think fresh basil would be better,
but I used dried and it worked well to ad just a bit of flavor.
