On Sunday, I did a demo at our first Healing and Raw Food Festival. This is a quick recipe, as many of you saw it live, it took me less than 10 minutes to make this delicious dish that can be for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
1 cup of raw organic almonds (hopefully sprouted)
¼ cup Flax Seed Powder (optional for those who have digestion problems)
Turmeric to taste
2 Medium Tomatoes or 4 Small ones
½ Medium Onion
½ small jalapeno pepper (optional)
Olive Oil (optional)
Avocado and Shredded Romaine lettuce
Put the almonds in the food processor with the flax seed powder, turmeric, cumin, and salt. Process to a powder and set aside in a bowl.
Using the same food processor (no need to wash it), put cut tomatoes, onions, oil, cilantro, and salt to taste. Pulse to make a semi-chunky salsa and avoid making it too liquidy. If you are using the jalapeno pepper, add them to the salsa to make it as spicy as you can handle. Add the salsa to the powdered almonds and mix without making to mushy.
Serve over shredded lettuce, I use the lettuce to replace the rice. Slice the avocado and serve on the side. This serves two people: a tiny woman and a big Russian!
I recently added something else to this recipe; I’ve been using pumpkin seed oil and pour it over avocado. It’s delicious!
I will be teaching a raw food preparation class which I’m calling: Let’s Make Dinner! You will learn to make a raw entree and a raw dessert, and then you will eat it! The first class will be Sunday August 24th at 5pm. You can reserve your spot here.
