10 Minutes or less Raw Juice
I use veggie wash and a good brush, trimming off tops
Generous Handful of Parsley
Wash & trim stems
1/2 inch of Fresh Ginger Root
Use a spoon or veggie peeler to remove outer shell
4 Kale Stalks or Stems
I usually have bunches of Kale Stems left over which are great for adding additional vitamins and nutrients to my juice drink.
Place all of the above in a juicer.
Be sure to save the left over pulp for your future cracker or bread recipes!
For those of you not into raw veggie drinks, this would be a good one to start with.
The carrots are so naturally sweet that you can’t taste the kale & the parsley leaves a clean crisp finish to the drink.
Delicious almond/ buckwheat hamburger bun, served with a tart Cream sauce and topped with Heirloom Tomatoes, Onions Straws and Alfalfa Sprouts.
Portobello(s) were marinated in Fresh Lemon juice, minced garlic, Nama shoyu and cold pressed olive oil for one hour. After marinating they were transferred to the dehydrator for 6 hours. I checked them every couple of hours and applied more marinate to keep them moist and evenly flavored.
Massage 5 Onions in Date Paste, Nama Shoyu & Olive Oil. Dehydrate on texflex sheet for 24 hours, remove and transfer to mesh sheet dehydrating for another 12 hours.
Warm Mash No-tatoes
In a food processor, blend Parsnips, Jicama, fresh Garlic, Olive Oil, Nutritional Yeast, Water, Salt and Pepper. Once you achieve the consistency you’d like transfer to a glass bowl and place on the bottom shelf of the dehydrator to warm.
Blend together Zucchini, Olive Oil, Garlic, Red Miso, Flax Meal, Almond Flour, Buckwheat Flour, Fresh Lemon Juice, Nutritional Yeast, Fresh Rosemary, Coriander, White Pepper, Sea Salt & Pepper.
Most of the raw hamburger/ sandwich buns we’ve had have been like little hockey pucks or terribly bland in flavor. These are so flavorful, moist and easy to bite down on. I opted to keep the skins on the Zucchini to so that I didn’t waste any of the vitamins, you could leave off which would give the bun a more golden appearance.
Onion Straws & Plating
You could really have some fun with the Onion Straws by creating some great visuals for plating.
For those parents out there, kids love these tasty onion treats and think they are onion rings! Great way to get your toddler or kids to eat these awesome cancer fighting foods.
So good they don’t know its health food!
I have never been able to get the kids to eat mushrooms. No matter how clever I am at hiding them in a dish, my daughter finds every one and picks them out. These steaks were so flavorful that she didn’t even give it a second thought and ate it all. My Son had two helpings of the potatoes and my husband stated it was the best meal ever!
Have fun with this dish and be sure to share it with your love ones!
1 C Frozen Blueberries

2 C Sprouted Buckwheat Groats
2 C Raw Organic Almonds
1 C Sprouted Raw Organic Sunflower Seeds
1 C Organic Flame Raisins
¾ C Chopped Dates
6 Small Apples
½ t Nutmeg
1T Ground Cinnamon
½ t Sea Salt
1 T Vanilla Extract
1 T Dried Orange Peel Granules
2 C Dates
½ C Fresh Orange Juice
Two days before, soak the nuts and Buckwheat to sprout. Be sure to rinse sprouts and Buckwheat every 4 hours, keep covered, and away from any direct heat.
Core and peel all Apples then cut them into the desired size. I like to make smaller cubes.
Transfer Buckwheat, Almonds, Sunflower Seeds and Apples to a large bowl.
Cube the two Bananas and set aside, to be added later once all ingredients are incorporated.
Add Cinnamon, Vanilla, Nutmeg, Dried Orange Peel, Sea Salt and stir well.
Add Raisins and Dates then start your sauce.
In a high speed blender add the 2 C of chopped Dates and Orange Juice, blend until smooth.
Stir into the granola and then fold in Banana chunks.
Place on Dehydrator trays for 12- 16 hours at 105. This should fill 2 ½ trays.
You could add: Strawberries, Blueberries, other fruits, nuts or seeds. Have fun and make it yours. This Granola is amazing all by itself or accompanied with a Pro-biotic (vegan) Coconut Yogurt or fresh nut milk.
