Falafels, from Joy of Living Live by Zahkah
1 cup dry almonds, ground in FP (not soaked)
2 tablespoons coriander
2 tablespoons kelp
1 1/2 tablespoons garlic powder or granulated garlic
1 1/2 tablespoons powdered cumin
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon dried onion or onion powder
1-2 tablespoons EV Olive Oil
water

Put the ground almonds in a mixing bowl. Add all the other ingredients, except water. Add very little water at a time until mixture has dough-like consistency. Form into balls. Serve with a dressing of your choice, diced cucumbers, and diced tomatoes.

Nutmeat by Jeremy Safron
2 cups dry walnuts (not soaked), ground in FP
1 cup sun dried tomatoes, soaked
1 glove minced garlic
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons Braggs Liquid Aminos or Nama Shoyu

Grind the walnuts until fine in FP. Blend all the other ingredients in a blender. All the wet to the dry in bowl and mix well. This is RICH. Use in a lettuce wrap, stuff a pepper or mushroom, use in a lasagna, whatever you like.

This might look like a lot of food, or it may not look like much. It depends on what you are used to eating. Raw food fills you up fast. For instance, I had 2 green juices and 1 slice of apple pie for breakfast. It's after 12:00pm and I am not hungry yet.

And depending on how many people you are feeding, you will have leftovers of everything. All the recipes are to serve 2-3 people. If it's just you eating the food, there will be plenty left the next day or even more to eat later in the day. None of these recipes require a dehydrator. Only a blender and food processor are needed.

I wrote the shopping list by order of the day. You don't have to get all these things at once. Look in your fridge and cabinets and see what you do have. Some things will become staples once a food becomes your favorite. Try them out and let me know how it goes. If you have questions, leave a comment and I will answer you there because other people may have the same question.

Love,
Althea

I'm often amazed at the Perfection of the Universe. Ask, and ye shall be given. I was JUST reading a post on the Raw Fu forum where someone was asking for a raw menu plan/recipes for one week. I'm going to point her in this direction.

Hmmm, think I'll have to peruse these yummy sounding recipes myself. :D

I'm often trying to find new recipes since my friends and I started this new raw rood diet. Well, new to us... so we come across this book full of great recipes... our favorite is the XYZ recipe. It's in the book by Susan Schenck, called The Live Food Factor.
Some are not only delicious, but easy and FAST to prepare.
So thank you for sharing and please keep it up I love learning new things to make!
