Raw Food Wednesday: Dolmas, Cauliflower Couscous, Watermelon Gazpacho

Raw Food Wednesday 5/09

(dinosaur kale stuffed with parsnips, mint, dill, pine nuts, lemon juice, cashew cheese, sea salt, black pepper)

Cauliflower Couscous
(cauliflower, parsley, kalamata olives, cilantro, mint, lemon juice, sea salt, pepper, cayenne)

Watermelon Gazpacho
(recipe here)

A little bit of this, a little of that -- the dolmas are a variation on the ones found in the Trotter/Klein "Raw" book subbing Dinosaur Kale and parsnip and cashew cheese which makes for a creamier filling.

The cauliflower couscous has become a staple -- always good when you have a half of a cauliflower and don't know what to do with it ;)

Finally, the first organic watermelon of the season has shown up (don't ask how much it cost!), so while the kids practiced spitting the seeds off the deck, we made the always refreshing gazpacho -- the jalapeno's heat sneaks in there if you let it sit for a few minutes and let all of the ingredients mingle.
