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

When I was first transitioning into a raw diet, I was really into making wonderful raw entrees since I had always been such a foodie. My husband also wanted a "meal" not just a snack, so I had fun experimenting with many recipes and created many of my own. I'll list some simple recipes and a few gourmet dishes as well.

When you add your favorite recipes, let us know if it's an original or add the source from where it originally came.

Photos are always appreciated.

Whoa, this is so good!!!  I made this for lunch today and it is really, really delicious. My subs: I used Shirataki noodles instead of kelp (it's what I had in the fridge), went with all lime juice and 2 (instead of 1) tblsp of agave and it was perfect.  I can't wait till my husband comes home for lunch to try it!

This is my absolute favorite Mock Tuna Salad and it's one my husband even requests (and he's not raw). I took this off of but then tweaked it to my liking so I am putting my revised recipe here. :)

2 cups almonds
6 or 7 Celery Ribs, diced
4 green onions, thinly sliced (the long skinny ones, lol)
About 1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley (more if you think it needs more.. I just pull about a handful of parsley and add it so I'm not exactly sure if 1/4 is the exact amount)..
Juice of 2 lemons
1 clove of garlic
1/4 teaspoon of cayenne (more or less depending on your taste)
1/4 teaspoon of paprika
About 3/4 of sheet of nori
Salt to taste

Add celery and green onions to large bowl and let sit.. In a food processor, place almonds, parsley, lemon juice, garlic, salt, cayenne, paprika and nori (tear into pieces first) in a food processer and process it well so it's all mixed. I actually process the almonds first so that they get well blended, but I have a mini processor so that might be why I need to do this.. Once blended, add it to celery and onions. Mix and add more salt if needed.

We love this recipe and it is so easy to make. You can add it to a collard wrap with some tomato and avocado, or you can make a sandwich with it with some raw bread and mayo or you can add it to a sheet of nori with other veggies that you like and make nori rolls OR you can just eat it plain!! ;D It's great to make in advance and have a meal on hand for a few days!!

I tried the stuffed mushroom caps for the first time - they were delicious.  I could not find the fresh basil and omitted it, added some yellow peppers, stuffed the caps and dehydrated for a few hours.  Very good!!  What can a person use instead of the pine nuts though?  In my area they are extremely expensive and I usually avoid recipes using them.

Simple Stuffed Mushrooms
1 large container of brown button mushrooms, stems removed
1/3 cup pine nuts
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup fresh cilantro, packed leaves, shopped
1/3 cup fresh basil, packed leaves, chopped
1 TBSP fresh lemon juice
1 cup tomato chopped
2 TBSP Bragg's Liquid Aminos, or to taste

Place all ingredients except the mushrooms and tomatoes into a food processor and pulse to chop. Add tomatoes and continue to pulse chop until just blended. This mixture should be more of a pesto, not a puree. Stuff this filling into the mushroom cap. The mushrooms can be eaten raw or dehydrated to warm for 2 hours at 115 degrees.
