Real Food Rehab

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

Today I'm trying out the concept of Foodie Friday. I am SO not Ani Phyo, but I do have a passion for making delicious raw food that you can easily make in your own kitchen without a bunch of swanky, expensive equipment. And today's dinner is one of those big winners that most everyone loves.
Marinated Asparagus
pg. 71 - Raw Food Cleanse
1 bunch organic asparagus
3 tablespoons red wine or apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons stone ground mustard
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons cold pressed olive oil
1 teaspoon sea salt
a bit of freshly cracked black pepper
lemon zest, as garnish
Trim off the tough ends from the asparagus.  Whisk together the remaining ingredients in a small bowl to make the marinade.  Place the asparagus in a zippered plastic bag and pour the marinade over, using your hands to incorporate & fully covered. Put into you rfrig until ready to serve.
Portobello Steaks with Wilted Spinach Salad
page 98 - Raw Food Cleanse
For the steaks:
4 portobello mushrooms, sliced lengthwise
3/4 cup cold pressed olive oil
1/3 cup Nama Shoyu or Wheat Free Tamari
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
2 cloves garlic, pressed and crushed
1 tablespoon fresh garden herb of choice
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
For the salad:
1/4 cup cold pressed olive oil
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons lime zest
2 cloves garlic, pressed and crushed
1/2 teaspoon sea slat
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
4- 5 cups fresh spinach
Final garnish:
freshly grated nutmeg
Coat the sliced mushrooms with a marinade made from the above ingredients.  Allow to sit for an hour or two. If you have an dehydrator, warm the marinated mushrooms at 115 degrees for at least one hour.  Make the dressing for the salad and work i nto the leaves with your hands to help wilt the greens.  Arrange the dressed spinach on a plate, lay the portobello steaks on top to serve. Grate a sprinkling of nutmeg, lemon zest and fresh cracked pepper for a final elegant presentation and taste.

Yummy! So glad to have the 1st recipe!
We had lettuce wraps with guacamole and mac nut sauce with veggies. I like fast and easy for sure! My children had a 100% raw day today! So fun!
I had no idea you could eat asparagus raw! Does marinating work well with broccoli, too? It's a vegetable that I love cooked, but really don't enjoy raw. I'm wondering if marinating it might soften it up enough that I'd enjoy it more... Maybe I'll try it this weekend with your asparagus marinade recipe.
Looks good Penni. Will try soon!
I loved the Foodie Friday Video. It is so helpful to see some simple, yet delicious meals prepared. Especially for us beginners. I would love to see more videos like this. Will you be doing this every Friday? My vote is yes yes yes yes, please! I am even bought asparagus yesterday!
Oh, I love foodie Friday. What a great idea. Now we either need to sponsor you a camera man or a camera tripod so we can see you in full action!

Thanks for all you do for us!
I can't wait to try this! You do a great job! I have nutmeg and I've never used it yet so I'm excited.
I must say I just love the big hoop ear rings along with the new look :) and foodie fridays will be a big hit with me. Hope you do this each F R I DA Y :) I am makng the Marinated Asparagus this weekend for sure
Sounds yummy - I need to branch out and try some new recipes.
hey is that ceramic knife? how do you like it
Foodie Friday wa hoo.. Portabello mushrooms, I didn't know you had to "De Feather" them. This opens a whole new world. I've tried them in the past as burgers, but found them very strong tasting.. So I've been using button mushrooms in most all recipes... This is really great Thanks Penni..
Mmmm Penni! I'm going to make ALL this on Sunday for dinner!


I almost forgot to hand is up two times for Foodie Friday! I loved it :-)
Yum!!! Thanks!
