the italian eggplant classic,gone raw
My favourite way to make pesto.
You can add in a little ‘sprinkle’ if you want to make it a bit cheesier.
Not completely raw, but a good source of B vitamins.
Adding more cashews makes it more solid & creamier, adding more yeast flakes makes it drier & more ‘cheesy’. If you want to use soaked cashews, it’d be best to dehydrate them before using in this recipe.
this is one of those “i can’t believe it’s raw” dishes. my entire family loves this. you have to make A LOT more than this if you want it to last as it reduces to not very much… plus, it’s delicious.
the recipe is adapted from my favorite cookbook, “verdura.” the book itself is neither raw nor vegan, but many of the recipes happen to be both (or easily modified)! there is an entire section on raw pasta sauces.
Too delicious & too realistic & too alive!
