Raw Food Wednesday: Winter Roll, Spaghetti Alfredo, Celery and Snow Peas stuffed with Cashew Cheese, Tomato and Basil Salad
Raw Food Wednesday 2/18
(Nama Shoyu & Meyer Lemon Dipping Sauce)
Celery and Snow Peas stuffed with Cashew Cheese
Tomato and Basil Salad
The idea this week was to make a small plate of raw hors d'oeuvres, little things you could pass around at a party.
The Winter Roll is very similar to the Autumn Roll, without the mushrooms and parsnips and using a lighter blend of cashews, pine nuts and walnuts.
The spaghetti alfredo is right out of Matt Amsden's "RAWvoultion" -- we had a couple of little zucchini that needed to be used up, just enough to make a couple of light forkfuls.
There was also a little cashew cheese leftover from earlier that found it's way stuffed into the celery and snow peas courtesy of Liz.
The tomato (much like the strawberry on Saturday) was surprisingly ripe and flavorful for February. Drizzled with a little olive oil & lemon juice vinaigrette and a few basil leaves tucked inside, it made summer seem less like a forgotten memory...
