Raw Food Wednesday: Burritos, Jicama Slaw, Mint and Cacao Nib Ice Cream

Raw Food Wednesday 4/04

(see below)

Jicama Slaw with Baby Kale and Radishes with a Lime Vinaigrette


Mint and Cacao Nib Ice Cream

For the ice cream, we took mint from the backyard, and added it to a cashew base (from "Vice Cream") along with some cacao nibs for that chocolate hit. Oh, yes -- we'll be making this again ;)

The burritos shells (from Gabriel Cousens) are simply 1/2 cup of soaked flax seeds mixed with 1/2 of an avocado, pureed in the vita-mix, dehydrated for 3-4 hours in the dehydrator at 115F.

step-by-step -- the filling:

Walnut taco filling from RAWvolution -- walnuts, cumin seed, corriander, nama shoyu all ground up in the vita-mix

second layer: guacamole (avocado, tomato, onion, fresh ground, cumin seed, salt, pepper)

third layer: cashew cheese (adapted from Trotter/Klein)

fourth layer: sour cream (cashew cheese, lemon juice, salt, white pepper)

fifth layer: shredded leaf lettuce (our local organic purveyor Bill Pennell just brought in the first batch of the year -- so soft you could sleep on it)
