Raw Main Course Recipes

Veggie Sticks with Marinara Sauce

Here’s another way to use up the pulp left over from your morning juicing. Make it a kid-friendly meal, too, by shaping the veggie sticks into fun shapes or letters and numbers. You’ll be surprised how quickly the food will disappear at mealtime!

Spicy Collard Greens Vegetable “Sushi”

Dark leafy greens are a very important piece of a well-balanced raw food diet due to their un-paralleled nutritional profile. This appetizer offers a pleasant way to consume them.

Russian-Style Layered Mushroom Salad

Tired of traditional salads? This recipe puts a whole new spin on the salad theme. The idea for this festive layered salad comes from Russian cuisine.

Traditional Russian salad recipes often include herring, boiled potatoes and mayonnaise. But this healthy variation is chock full of raw goodness. Instead of cooking vegetables, use them in their raw state. Let mushrooms be the substitute for herring and have the avocados stand in for potatoes—more tastily, too! No mayo, either—instead, a nut-based dressing.

A decided improvement in taste and nutrition. A real novelty, too. Your party guests will never have seen or tasted this one! Guaranteed to impress.

Lentil Patties with Cucumber Dill Sauce

These two recipes are rather versatile. Try crackers or “meat” balls instead of patties. Use the sauce as a salad dressing, dip for crackers and crudités, or as a sauce for lettuce wraps.

Stuffed Mushrooms

These petite stuffed mushrooms can be served as an appetizer, or become part of the main course when accompanied by a salad. Either way, they are filling and delicious.

Luxurious Lasagna

I am usually one for whipping up quick simple dishes, but whenever my son, Nick, visits I always ask him to make this amazing dish from my book Beautiful on Raw-UnCooked Creations.

Easy Nori Rolls

This recipe is adapted from my Beautiful on Raw: unCooked Creations. This easy version of the “sushi” rolls can be made very quickly and doesn’t even require a food processor.
