Raw Food Wednesday: Caponata, Mixed Green Salad, Cream of Celery Soup, Summer Squash Pasta with Cherry Tomatoes and Portobello Mushroom

Raw Food Wednesday 8/8

(recipe here)

Cream of Celery Soup
(from RAWvolution)

Mixed Green Salad
(cucumber, radish, red onion, red bell pepper)

Summer Squash Pasta with Cherry Tomatoes and Portobello Mushrooms

A little of this, a little of that -- the celery soup was pleasant surprise (celery and almonds), after the planned melon soup had to be scrapped due to the melon, er... sucking. ;)

The roma tomatoes used for the caponata were a little smaller than last time, so there was a bit of filling leftover (a.k.a. lunch tomorrow, bonus!), but the advantage was that you could just pop them into your mouth in one bite. Perfect for your next raw dinner party.

The pasta, used both a zucchini and yellow squash (watch out for the seeds!). The tomatoes get incredibly sweet in the dehydrator, which are balanced by the earthy mushrooms (marinated in olive oil, nama shoyu and pepper).
