Raw Food Wednesday: Morel Mushroom Stacks With Fennel Puree and Basil Oil, Daikon Spring Rolls, Avocado and Grapefruit Salad, Cucumber, Coconut Water

Raw Food Wednesday 4/18

Morel Mushroom Stacks With Fennel Puree and Basil Oil
(From Trotter/Klein: marinated morel mushrooms, fennel puree, fennel slices, fennel fronds, basil oil)

Daikon Spring Rolls
(daikon wrappers, mango, red bell pepper, young coconut meat, scallion, jalapeño)

Avocado and Grapefruit Salad
(with Garlic Dressing and Cashew Cheese Crutons)

Cucumber, Coconut Water and Lime Soup
(recipe below)

Oh happy day! the morels have finally come in! Fat, earthy and juicy, these are perfect specimens. We salute you, Mrs. Morel Mushroom Picker who sells to Mustard Seed Market in Fairlawn.

The daikon rolls are adapted from Sarma's "Raw Food Real World" -- cut into fat slices on the mandoline, as we don't have a "sheeter" -- and if anyone can point us to one for sale online in the US, we'd be eternally grateful.

The soup was crisp and refreshing with just enough heat from the jalapeño...
the recipe was:

one cucumber, seeded,
water from one young coconut,
lime juice to taste
1 small jalapeno
sea salt to taste

everybody into the vita-mix for 20 seconds

garnished with mint....
