Ruby's Rawkin' Red Sauce (Marinara)

2 cups fresh tomatoes (variety of your choice)
1 shallot
1 cup sun-dried tomatoes, soaked; reserve liquid
1 1/2 T olive oil
1 clove garlic
3 soft dates, pitted
1 sprig fresh basil
1 t sea salt
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

Put all ingredients in a blender and process until you have a marinara consistency. Add the reserved soak water as necessary to thin.

Wild Green Pesto

1 cup fresh lambsquarters leaves
1 cup wild dandelion greens
1 cup fresh spinach
1 cup fresh basil leaves
2 T fresh garlic
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/2 cup cold pressed extra virgin olive oil
2/3 cup pine nuts (or less)
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast (optional)

Put the greens (any variety of leafy greens will be fine) into a food processor fited with the S-blade and pulse repeatedly until both are well chopped. Add garlic, pine nuts, lemon juice and nutritional yeast and blend until the nuts are finely chopped and mixture is well combined. With the lid on and processor running, drizzle olive oil in through the feeder tube until mixture is the consistency you prefer.

To make the stacks you'll need:

1 zucchini
1 large, ripe tomato
assorted sprouts
black olives, pitted & chopped

Slice the tomato into nice thick rounds and layer alternating with red sauce & pesto. Top with sprouts & chopped black olives.

Thinly slice the zucchini on the bias with a sharp knife, mandoline or cai bao. Layer alternating with the red sauce & pesto. This would also be excellent with a raw seed or nut cheese.

Penni, that looks really , really good!
love the idea of dehydrating extra greens if you have too many. i never seem to have too many, but if i had my own garden i might.

beautiful looking meal, penni. congrats winners!

I am giving away some high quality raw items from vivapura on my blog. just wanted to give a heads up to all my RFR pals.

OMG! I almost fell out of my chair when you said my name! I can't wait to start munchin' on those weeds. I have a whole yard full of them! Thank you!! :)
Penni, love this recipe for the "Stackables"! Relatively easy. Thank you! Congrats to the winners.
The food looks fab. Definitely plan to try them. Congrats to the winners!!
Penni,

This looks simply amazing. Can you please give me some more information on your dehydrated greens...should they be stored in the refridgerator or freezer after dehydrating and making into a powder? And how long do they store refridgerated/frozen...or open shelf life??

Thanks
Ella Jane
The green alkaline water I drink has dried dandelions in it.
