Raw Burger: onion bread with sweet potato burger, 
chilli-cashew mayonnaise, sunflower greens and cooked beetroot   



Ingredients: 2 sweet potatoes, 1 red onion, 1 apple, 0.5 sliced red chilli, 2 stalks celery, 3 dessertspoons flax, 0.5 cup sunflower seeds, a little tamari or aminos or salt to taste.

In your food processor grate sweet potatoes and apple. Set aside. Then with the blade in finely chop onion, chilli, celery sunflower seeds and tamari or salt into a paste. Add grated ingredients and pulse (or mix through in a bowl). Add flax and mix through. Shape into 8 big burgers and dehydrate for about 8 hours.


Ingredients: 0.75 cup cashews (soaked for a couple of hours), 0.5 cup sunflower seeds, 1 clove garlic finely chopped, juice of a lime, 3 tablespoons agave nectar, 1 tablespoon braggs aminos, 1 inch chopped ginger, 3 tablespoons filtered water, 0.5 sliced red chilli.

In your food processor or blender mix everything together until it forms a sauce.


I enjoy eating salads, but my sweet tooth appreciates a raw cookie to look forward to with a cup of jasmine or genmaicha tea. This afternoon I've made 51 cookies: a mixture of chocolate-raisin and carrot-cinnamon which will take us comfortably through the working week to come. Ideally the nuts and seeds would be soaked but poor planning means needs must ...

Ingredients for carrot-cinnamon cookies: 1 cup walnuts, 1 cup coconut, 1 cup carrots, 1 cup raisins, 1 cup flax, 3 teaspoons coconut butter, 3 teaspoons maple syrup, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and a good pinch salt.

In your food processor: start with walnuts, coconut and carrots and process until finely chopped. Then add the rest of the ingredients and process just until you have a well mixed batter. The dough will be quite thick which leaves full raisin pieces. You could also mix through by hand but I'm lazy. Shape into cookies and dehydrate for about 4 hours or so.

And it's because I'm lazy that I started with the carrot-raisin cookies. No need to clean the food processor before moving onto chocolate!

Ingredients for chocolate-raisin cookies: 0.75 cup walnuts, 0.25 cup sunflower seeds, 1 cup carrots, 1 cup flax, 1 cup raisins, 0.25 cup cacao, 3 teaspoons coconut butter, 3 teaspoons maple syrup, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and a good pinch salt. 

In your food processor: start with walnuts and seeds (I used a combination because I was short of walnuts) and carrots. Process to small crumbs. Add coconut butter, maple syrup, vanilla, salt and cacao, mixing in until well combined. Add remaining ingredients and mix until combined. This will be quite thick so you could add a little water or more syrup if you want to be kinder to your food processor. Otherwise just keep scraping it down. It doesn't take long. Shape into cookies and dehydrate for about 4 hours or so.

Oh you are all really sweet. I did pick it up and have a bit but it was actually really hard to eat like that! We ended up with knives and forks. What I love about raw food is how easy it is to pull it all together. One burst of activity leaves you with enough food for 2 people for quite a few days!

@Cici - it tasted delicious! The flavours were all well balanced and textured and combined well. I'm definitely making this again :-)

Great presentation! Thanks for sharing your recipes too.  I just got a dehydrator for Christmas and I can't wait to try your recipes. I too think you should open a cafe!!!

Antony! When are you hanging out the awning and opening the cafe? I'd even consider crossing the Big Pond for a meal (or three!). ツ

Thanks Penni :-) The cooked beetroot is of course optional - I'm not quite sure why but I am obsessed with cooked beetroot at the moment!
