Very flavorful salad with the meaty texture of marinated mushrooms. Seriously filling.
Long before I became a raw Foodist, I loved grilling portabella mushrooms with seasonings in place of steak. I smothered them with grilled onions and the flavor and texture where just wonderful substitutes for meat when my family wanted steaks for dinner. When I began converting to a mostly raw food diet, I started looking for ways to replace some of my old favorites. Spaghetti and Meatballs is one of my favorite comfort foods. Something about sharing a good Italian meal makes everyone you're sharing it with feel like family. Searching the internet for raw vegan meatballs was met with disappointment on my part. I found most recipes where not much more than ground nuts with spices. I wanted something heartier, more 'meaty'. This recipe incorporates the use of portabella to give it that 'meaty' texture I was looking for the same way I used to use portabella's in place of steak. I came up with this recipe based on ideas from several sites I searched through Google but I can't give credit to any one in particular, nor can I take complete credit myself. Cheers!
There are few appetizers I love more than the springroll. Here's a raw veggieful version that uses collard leaves as a flavourful wrapper with a bit of a crunch. Add in some marinated enoki mushrooms or sea veggie noodles for an added dimension of texture and taste.
