Raw food recipes with macadamia nuts

Nut or seed cheese is used in numerous raw food recipes, so it is one of the first steps you need to learn in raw-food preparation. Once you know how to make a raw cheese, you are already halfway to becoming a raw-food chef. Let us begin...

Love citrus fruit? Enjoy it as a salad. The combination of sweet and sour fruits with a nut-based dressing will satisfy your taste buds and works great as a meal in itself.

In many parts of the country this soup, served slightly warm, will be very appropriate at this time of the year.  Leftover soup can also double as a dip or salad dressing.

This recipe uses Hachiya (Japanese) persimmons, which are very soft when fully ripe. They are combined with macadamia nuts to make a filling meal, which can be as humble or as festive as you prefer.

For those days when fruit alone just won’t cut it and you would like something more grounding and filling for a meal. Raw macadamia nuts turned into “cheese” make a delicious filling for figs, a spread for crackers, or a dip for cut vegetables.

Celebrate Easter and welcome spring with this not-your-ordinary salad. Children will be delighted to help you with the nest-building business!

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.

Summer berries are here, and so is Independence Day! You won’t feel guilty bringing this type of cake to the 4th of July potluck: it’s raw, sugar-free and abundant in berries.

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.
