Raw Main Course Recipes

Hearty Winter Muesli

On the days when you’d like your meal to be a little denser than usual, consider making muesli. Serve it for breakfast, lunch or dinner, and make sure to chew the grains thoroughly for optimum digestion. This is a very flexible recipe, allowing you to substitute grains for nuts or other grains, as well as your choice of dried and fresh fruits.

Veggie Kebabs in Pineapple Spice Marinade

Kebabs are a fun way to eat vegetables for both kids and kids-at-heart. You can customize the vegetable selection based on your family’s preferences and seasonal availability.

Vegetables with Tangy Tahini Dip

Natalya really outdid herself on this ambitious arrangement! Vegetable or fruit trays are a sure way to please the majority of people at a potluck. Add some simple carvings, and you just may be bringing an empty tray home, while feeling guilt-free about the food you brought to the party.

Raw Stuffing

Gone are the days when the only place you would find the stuffing was inside a roasted bird. Now it gets a bowl of its own on the holiday table and we avoid the bird entirely. Here’s one way to prepare your stuffing to fit your raw lifestyle.

Cauliflower Parsnip Mashed “Potatoes”

A versatile side dish, mashed “potatoes” are great for the holidays or for any time of the year. Parsnips and cauliflower complement each other to create the raw version of this beloved holiday dish.

Creamy and Crunchy Sunchoke Salad

This crunchy salad tastes surprisingly similar to egg and potato salad, but it doesn’t contain either. Sunchokes, which are widely available in the fall and early winter, are a good raw substitute for potatoes, while cashews and turmeric bring the color and texture of eggs to this dish.

Sweet Potato Hashbrowns with Mushroom Gravy

Who would miss potatoes on a raw diet when they can make these sweet potato hashbrowns? Served with a side salad or simply on a bed of greens, they provide a satisfying meal reminiscent of those ole cooked times, minus the heavy feeling in the stomach and any sense of guilt from destroying the vital nutrients by high heat.

Eggplant Pizza

Pizza is on the menu today.  We will be using sliced eggplant instead of a traditional crust. Feel free to use your favorite raw toppings.

Colorful mini bell peppers take the central stage in this dish. This versatile dish is a complete meal in itself, and takes little time to put together. Soak, blend, stuff – and you have lunch to take to work with you.

Raw Tacos with Cashew Cream

When we prepare raw food dishes from other cultures, it is usually the specific spices and herbs that help us achieve the flavors associated with each country’s traditional cuisine. Mexican dishes emphasize cilantro, cumin, lime, chili and jalapeno peppers, all of which are included in these tacos.
