Raw Food Wednesday: Sweet and Sour Vegetables

Raw Food Wednesday 10/17

Sweet and Sour Vegetables

We were playing around with favorites from the cooked world today -- the sauce turned out really nice. The addition of the macadamia nuts thickened it just enough to really coat the veggies... Not bad for a first attempt. ;)

(Those are sea beans on the top, for a little salty crunch)

Sweet and Sour Vegetables

(For the sauce)

1 cup of pineapple, large dice
2 tbs. apple cider vinegar
2 tbs. nama shoyu
2 tbs. agave
1/4 cup macadamia nuts
1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, soaked for 30 minutes
1 garlic
salt and pepper to taste

Puree all the ingredients, taste for the balance of sweet/sour/salt. Adjust as necessary.

2 cups of pineapple, small dice
2 cups of snow peas, trimmed
1 cup of red or green cabbage, small dice
1 red bell pepper, small dice
1 large carrot, small dice
1/2 red onion, small dice
1 jalapeno, minced
1 small shallot, minced

Place all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Pour the sauce over top, and stir to incorporate. Lay it all out on two teflex sheets and dehydrate for 2 hours at 105F stirring once about halfway through.
