Real Food Rehab

No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!


Hey Raw Food Rehab!  I have been loving being here on Fridays and I want to say thank you to all of my fellow Rehabbers for sharing in the Foodie Friday fun. I get so excited when I am playing in the kitchen that I tend to yammer on. I tried really hard to edit today's episode down to the facts but honestly I do food and chit chat, not technology. I am sorry it is as long as it is but frankly this recipe is so worth it, it is an all seasons total keeper.

I have found that there are so many people who just cant' make raw broccoli work for them. Well, this is a yummilicious way to get some fantastic nutrient dense raw broccoli into your shining bodies. Below is the list of ingredients and simple directions.

Broccoli Pie
This recipe made 3 - 4" tartlets or double the recipe for a 9" pie pan

For the crust:
1 cup of almonds (soaked, drained, rinsed, dried)
1/2 tablespoon tamari, coconut aminos or Nama Shoyu 
1 to 3 tablespoons liquid of your choice (I used pepper soak water)
1/2 tablespoon ground flax seeds

Process nuts first until evenly ground, pulse while adding liquids, incorporate flax meal and then press into pie or tartlet pans.

For the filling:
2 & 1/2 cups chopped broccoli florets
1/2 tablespoon water
1/2 tablespoon tamari, coconut aminos or Nama Shoyu
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup tahini
1 cup mushrooms, sliced (your choice, I used white)
1 large green onion (white part only)
1/2 tablespoon fresh herbs (optional - I used cilantro)
1 heaping teaspoon ground flax seeds


Put first 4 ingredients into food processor, run until there are no chunks.  Add ingredients 5 through 8 into processor until creamy. Sprinkle in flax until blended.

Fill prepared tart pans and chill for an hour. (If you can wait that long)  These can stay in fridge up to 16 hours if you want to make in advance.

I got a sneak peek of this late last night....and I was soo inspired that I went to the store to get the ingredients that I did not have .... then I got the almonds soaking...I just put them in the dehydrator a bit ago...can't wait to make this today!!!! : ) We're choppin' brocolli (singing) : )
Wow!!  YUM!  I can't wait to try this, too.
i absolutely looove michelle.  i may have to try this one!
Raw broccoli isn't one of my faves so far, except for the peeled stalks, but this pie may well change things!
I'm enjoying your Foodie Fridays, Michelle - love your kitchen videos!
This looks absolutely fantastic, Michelle. Of course, all your recipes do. But I really love the idea of the savory crust. I have some soak water from some sun dried tomatoes that I used yesterday and, like you I hate to throw anything away. I think I'll make some crusts with it. Then I'll go to the store and get some broccoli to make the rest. Wow. Thank you.

I wonder whether the crust would be okay without using a dehydrator.  I've made raw apple pie with nut crusts and not used a dehyrator and it was fine. Just not crispy like a dried crust.


No kidding this looks outstanding.  I'm doing this tonight.  I've got all I need and I have the soaked, dried almonds ready to go.  I want to know how I can get to be Michelle's girlfriend and have her deliver such a great looking lunch.  Oye, chop that broccoli.


i know what I'm eating this weekend. Got tons of brocoi this week!  Thanks Michele!!!!!

This looks incredible Michelle!  I am doing the happy dance because I have some awesome organic broccoli I got really cheap and need to use right now in my fridge.  I am so glad you said the thing about the mushrooms because I do not like them, Sam-I-am but I will trust you and put them in.  (I would have totally omitted them 'cuz that's just the rebel I am! lol) 


I am going to make Penni's broccoli salad with the stalks and your wonderful quiche (sounds so chic!) with the florets.  Can I just say how much I love your videos and how you keep it real?  I love that you just chat with us like we are a girlfriend sitting in your kitchen.  I love that you have a REAL kitchen where ingredients sometimes plop on the counter and you are a REAL mother who sometimes has kids interrupting her or you know, sticking their hands into the cuisinart with the blade still in! lol  It is so refreshing and it makes me be able to relate and think, "Yeah, she's a mom like me.  I can do this!" 

I know it takes a lot of effort to do these videos, and I just want to thank you and say "Keep 'em coming!"

This looks like an amazing recipe, I will have to get the ingredients....Thanks Michelle, Have a great day....
I am making this today!!! I will report the outcome. YUMM!!!
Yes, I thought I said that (sorry if I didn't)-you totally can make this without a dehydrator.
