Raw Food Recipe Menu: March 2, 2014

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.

the romaine and greens. Toss with the onion, radish, strawberries, and

slowly as you whisk. Spoon over salads.
