Raw Food Wednesday: Portobello Burgers, Avocado Fries, Tomato and Basil Soup, Banana and Carob Tart

Raw Food Wednesday 8/22

Portobello Burgers

Avocado Fries

Tomato and Basil Soup


Banana and Carob Tart

The burgers were from "Living Cuisine" by Renee Loux Underkoffler and were portobello mushrooms, walnuts, celery, parsley, basil, zucchini, nama shoyu, olive oil and black pepper topped with red onion, tomato, lettuce. The bread was from Ani Phyo's excellent new book "Ani's Raw Food Kitchen."

We first saw the avocado fries came at the Raw Inspiration blog back in June, and finally got around to trying it. We were surprised at how crispy they were after about an hour in the dehydrator -- the mixture (slightly tweaked with flax seed, garlic, salt, fresh cumin and mashed cherry bomb peppers) adhered nicely to the avocado, making them resemble oven fries. The kids wanted more -- a sure sign that the apocalypse is nigh. ;)

Dessert was a banana and carob tart from Trotter/Klein slighly modified with the addition of young coconut -- the kids wanted seconds of these as well, and I was in complete agreement...
