6th Annual Best of Raw Award

July 21, 2011


It's HOT here in NJ and the last thing I feel like doing is spending too much time on dinner. I want quick, easy and COOLING! This din din hit the spot and was PERFECT. It was one of those times where I'm eating something raw...and I can just feel that my body is smiling on the inside. Hard to explain, but you just know it's good! Have you experienced that? What would you call it?

Burrito or Taco Shells
Romaine leaves

tomatoes, chopped
red onion, chopped
dulse flakes
sprouts (optional)

Refried Beans 
1 cup almonds (soaked overnight)
1 portobello mushroom cap, feathers removed, and chopped (optional)
1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, soaked for 1 hour
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 jalapeno pepper, minced (depending on taste)
1/4 yellow onion, chopped
2 tsp cumin
1 1/2  tsp coriander
pinch sea salt, to taste
water, as needed to process

Combine nuts and olive oil in food processor or high speed blender.

Add water as needed. Add remaining ingredients and process until smooth, or leave a bit chunky.

Season to taste. Set aside.

Burrito Meat
1 C walnuts (soaked several hours)
1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes (soaked 30 min)
1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes soak water
1/4 cup diced onion
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 tsp cumin 
2 tsp coriander 
1/2 tsp parsley 
1Tbsp olive oil (or your fav oil)
1/4 tsp chili powder (to taste)
pinch of sea salt to taste 
Dash of cayenne pepper. 

Process walnuts and sun dried tomatoes and add to a bowl.
Add remaining ingredients and season to taste.

2  medium tomatoes
1/4 avocado 
3 green onions
1/2  red bell pepper, chopped
1/2  orange bell pepper, chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, to taste
1 Tbsp lime juice
1 Tbsp cumin
1 Tbsp cilantro, dried (2-3 Tbsp fresh)
1 clove of garlic, crushed
dash cayenne, to taste
sea salt, to taste

Mix all ingredients except bell peppers in food processor. Add peppers and pulse, leaving them chunky. Season to taste. Refrigerate and serve.
Fill romaine leaves with "meat," "refried beans," salsa and toppings. I find it much easier to fold in half, lengthwise...pick up and eat. It's messy, but soooo yummy. No bloated belly after this meal, but a very happy one!
