Some Meals of the Week

I recently made Snowdrop's sesame nuggets for the third time, these are always a taste of heaven - she is ingenious, I tell ya! I remember clearly, the first time I made these, with Carmella during our diva uncooking extravaganza. These gems were near the top of our "to do" list that week, and we were two happy girls when they came out so well.

Ok, so I ended up getting a 2 for 1 deal this week when I had leftover sauce from this recipe. For a quick and easy dish I mixed together spiralized zucchini, chopped veggies, the sweet n sour sauce, a sprinkling of sesame seeds and some spicy seasoned nuts - Dinner in less than 10 minutes. Donchya just love those?

My mom had a hankering for pizza ever since we enjoyed it at Tree of Life. I'm now in the midst of teaching her how to make these things - yay! So we enjoyed pizza for dinner together one evening this week . I keep a stack of dehydrated crusts on hand for convenience, so all I need to do is throw together a sauce and top with whatever else I fancy (or have on hand, really). It's such a great way to use up leftovers as well, because (in my opinion), anything savory goes great on pizza!

A sprouted almond/veggie pulp/yellow flax seed crust made up the base, topped with a basic sundried tomato marinara: hydrated sundried tomatoes, fresh tomatoes, red bell pepper, fresh basil, lemon juice, olive oil, sea salt, dried oregano, and garlic. Over that I layered thin rounds of zucchini, and strips of red bell pepper, followed by chopped red chard mixed with some basil pesto (something else I like to make a big batch of and always have on hand). Next I added crumbled up nutloaf (another leftover item in the fridge), and last but definately not least - a drizzling of cheesey goodness - Made with macadamia nuts, pine nuts, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, water, and sea salt.

I like to pop my pizza back into the dehydrator for a quick warm up and to "set" the cheese. Crazy how much it really does look like cheese by the end.

I also had a savory "D" day this week. I made two types of buckwheat based pizza crusts (one of Alissa's and the other from Rainbow Green Live Food Cuisine), Alissa's calzone (I can't believe this was my first time making it!), curried nuts/seeds, almond pulp (for that smooth silky flour that I love), bread sticks, dried sprouted buckwheat, burgers from The Raw 50, and kale patties (which I converted into spinach/chard patties). I highly recommend eating the kale patty mixture as a spread as well, without the dehydration. It's delish! A few of these items will be in upcoming posts, if I can manage it.

    We should make an official raw pizza day where we all plan in advance to eat/blog about it at the same time. Oh yeah, we kind of already did that :-)

    Shannon, <br />thats a good idea - we've done it on RFC before - we all decide on a recipe and then make it the same day and share experience/pics, etc. we should do that!
