Monday, August 11th, 2014

Even on my raw food diet, I’m feeling like I need a cleanse…It’s actually been so long since I’ve don’t a juice fast, so Im starting one today. If you would like to cleanse with me, post a comment here on what you juice, recipe, etc.. maybe we’ll have a bunch of people doing an end of summer fast together!

Good luck!

8 carrots, 1 apple, piece of lemon, large chunk of ginger… yummy!

Raw Pancakes!

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

Last week I met Leah, my chef that worked for me at Grezzo, for dinner in the North End of Boston. It was all very nostalgic as we were reminiscing about Grezzo and all of the memories of the people that used to come in and the great times we had there. And of course we talked about the food! So the next day I was inspired to make the pancake recipe that’s in our book. There are so many incredible recipes in Raw Food for Everyone but this one is so easy and there’s no planning ahead. You may want to make a double batch though as they are hard to resist!

     

Morning, Noon, and Night Pancakes 

When you want pancakes for breakfast or dinner, try these. These pancakes are the real deal. They have a maple-pecan flavor and the fluffy texture of real pancakes.  Since they’re dehydrated ahead of time, keep some on hand for a quick breakfast or dinner.

 Makes 10 pancakes

2 cups pecans, soaked for 4 hours

2 cups pine nuts 

2 ripe bananas

1 cup agave nectar

Seeds from 2 vanilla beans

1 teaspoon sea salt

2 cups blueberries, muddled

1.  Put the soaked pecans and any remaining soaking liquid, pine nuts, bananas, agave, vanilla, salt, and ½ cup water in a Vita-Mix. Blend until smooth. Using a spatula, fold in the muddled blueberries.

2.  With a ladle, drop ½ -cup measures of the batter onto Teflex-line dehydrator racks, leaving at least ½ inch between the pancakes.  They should be thick like pancakes, about ½ inch thick, not thin like crêpes. Dehydrate for 8 hours.  Flip the pancakes onto clean Teflex sheets and dehydrate for 8 more hours.

3. Cover and refrigerate up to 3 days.
