I made this for the 4th of July. It tastes better than the real thing to me, but I wasn’t at home and had vegetables but used conventional condiments(so you may have to fudge this part- please post your version if you do!). Great with the Tahini sauce, BBQ sauce, or Ranch Dressing (see this site for recipe). You could try this on non raw friends and they’d be suprised! It would be great as a Chinese dinner or as a finger food the way I made it.
2 cup mung beans, sprouted for 8 to 36 hours
2 cup carrots, chopped
½ red pepper
4 tablespoon olive oil
1 can of mandarine oranges, or 6 oz small orange
1 shot of bourbon or flavoring (or a date)
1 tablespoon horseradish
2 shots tabasco
¼ cup black or white sesame seeds
½ cup flax meal
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon basil
1 tablespoon honey mustard
This is adapted from an Alyssa Cohen recipe that I was told about on the site. I mainly wanted to submit it because I think the picture really makes it appetising.
Grow 2 cups (after growing)of mung beans sprouted just a day or two so that most of the green skins will float off. This made a great white “meat.”
First, add 2 cups of chopped carrots to the blender or cuisinart and chopp fine. Add half a cup of onions (vidalia if possible),4 tbs of olive oil, One can of mandarine oranges, 1 tbs bourbon flavoring or bourbon. Half a red pepper, 1 tbs horseradish, 1 tbs honey mustard, a couple shots of tabasco and 2 tbs orange marmalade. Garlic powder, basil, and black or white pepper- And add mung beans of course. Then add half a cup of flax meal (grind flax seeds before carrots if your machine will do it and they’re not already ground).
Grease teflex sheets or parchment paper and put large balls down and flatten the top with a spoon. Dehydrate for 18-24 hours. Check half way through and flip. You may need to press them together a little to keep them firm. Really good! Serve with honey mustard dressing, celery or bbq sauce. Pineapple sauce with red pepper- or you could switch the mandarines for 1\4 of a pineapple in the recipe.
p.s. When I first found the gone raw website I was drawn to a picture of food that looked beautiful and thought that it really looked good so I hope someone who really hasn’t thought of going this way could look at this picture and see it as fun and do-able! I hope I didn’t offend anyone with all of the condiments.
