Cranberry Kale Salad

CranberryKaleSalad

If you want an easy way to add some greens to your holiday table, this salad is for you. My Grandpa used to make cranberry bread for Thanksgiving, and this is basically that — in salad form.  Cranberries, walnuts, orange, all mixed together … it’s like the holidays in a bowl!  This makes a moderate amount as everyday fare, so if you’d like a larger portion to serve at holiday meals, the recipe doubles or triples easily.

Almost-Raw Zucchini “Macaroni” and Cheez

raw macaroni and cheezHave you been looking for a good, easy, nearly raw macaroni and cheez recipe? As with a lot of fancier raw recipes, I regret that this one needs machines — a high speed blender to make the sauce, and a spiral slicer (I love the World Cuisine Spiral Slicer) to make “noodles” from zucchini. But if you have those in your kitchen, you’ll enjoy this dish. This is recipe says “comfort food” like raw foods rarely do. more→

Spinach or Arugula and Miso Pesto

Spinach or Arugula and Miso Pesto

This delicious pesto turns ordinary carbs into special meals. You can use this as suggested below for serving with pasta, pizza, or potatoes. Or skip the carbs as I’ve done here, and toss this pesto with “noodles” made of raw zucchini and/or yellow summer squash made with a spiral slicer. No matter how you use it, this pesto, made greener with spinach, imparts a rich, briny flavor from the addition of miso.  more→
