Black Radish Ravioli, Butternut Squash Spaghetti, Ceasar Salad with Carrot Crutons, Banana and Chocolate Tart

Raw Food Wednesday 10/4

Black Radish Ravioli
(stuffed with cashew "cheese")

Butternut Squash Noodles

Ceasar Salad with Carrot Croutons


Banana Chocolate Tart with Caramel Sauce
(adapted from Trotter/Klein)

Originally, we were going to have pizza again, but the shells we made last time apparently weren't quite dry enough when we stored them. This is not a good thing. I always like using the line from Spinal Tap " left unsolved" and tossed them out. ;)

So, shifting gears, we made butternut squash noodles and finally got to use the Black Radish (about the size of a beet, with black on the outside and white on the inside) for the ravioli stuffed with cashew "cheese". served with sort of a tomato confit (diced tomatoes, marinated in olive oil, pepper, nama shoyu, fresh rosemary and thyme for a few hours).

The banana chocolate tart however, was teh r0x0r... adapted from the Trotter/Klein book (and using chocolate, falling into the not-quite-raw, but delicious section). The free-form crust was prepped and dehydrated, starting in the morning, as well as the "caramel" sauce and chocolate section. Liz once again, kicks ass and takes names...
