Spinach & Ricotta Cheese Calzones
An amazing recipe I found on the “from sad to raw. com” web site. I haven’t tried it yet but it looks great.
1/2 cup flax seeds ( I used golden ones)
2 tbs. kamut flour
2 tbs. sesame seeds
3/4 ripe avocado
2 pinches of Celtic salt
Blend everything in a high speed blender or run through juicer. Add enough of the celery juice to create a smooth pancake consistency. Spread the batter on teflex sheets as close to a circular shape as possible. Dehydrate it for 2 hrs. at 100 degrees, flip them over and dehydrate for 2 more hours until soft and pliable. Remove em from the sheets until they get too crispy, set aside, and cover them with a damp terry cloth towel from getting crispy.
Making the cheese
1 cup truly raw cashews (soaked for 8 hrs)
1 cup pine nuts (soaked for 2 hrs)
1 cup almonds (soaked 10 hrs)
1 tbs. rejuvelac
2 pinches of Celtic sea salt
Process the nuts and salt in a food processor or blender till smooth but still has some texture. Transfer mixture into a non metal bowl and add the rejuvelac, cover with a light towel and leave it out at room temp. for 10 hrs. Store in the fridge till ready to use.
1 cup baby spinach
dash of nutmeg
1/2 clove of garlic (optional) just kidding, put it in!
dash of cayenne pepper
1 tsp lemon juice
1 cup of the ricotta cheese (recipe above)
Mix in the food processor till nice and thick, leave whole pieces of spinach for texture and color.
Making the darn thing!
You still with me? Alright. Take a teflex sheet, put one of the dehydrated doughs on it, take a spatula and spoon some of the filling on one half of the dough, (don’t put too much, if the cheese is too wet it may break the dough, put a lettuce leaf under it, or drain the cheese) Here you can add whatever toppings you like, maybe some drained olives, marinated mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, some greens, etc…. Next, brush the edges with some olive oil and fold over the other half of the dough, use your fingers or a fork to crimp the dough together. Put the teflex with the calzone on it in the dehydrator and dehydrate for 1-2 hrs. or until warm and a little crisp on the sides. Serve warm right out of the dehydrator on a bed of greens, and garnish the plate with minced green onion.
You can make all sorts of fillings, like add some tomato sauce in with the ricotta cheese or some olives, the possibilities are endless.. but make sure it’s a dry filling or put a leaf under it. The wraps are also good for burritos or enchiladas.
