Wow so much nice feedback from yesterday’s recipe for Raw Pad Thai, I thought I’d send out another recipe today. Some questions from yesterday: One person wanted to know what could be substituted for the orange juice, I think that just leaving it out and increasing the lemon and lime would work, maybe adding a bit of something sweet, to taste.
Other less common ingredients that would really make the sauce for the Pad Thai shine would be Kaffir lime leaves and crushed lemongrass stalk. Play with your food!
This recipe from Raw ‘Pizza’ is taken from Week Four of my 3 month raw food coaching class which is going on right now.
Here’s a take on this pizza recipe (not as authentic but you’ll get the idea)
For this ‘recipe’ you are going to need a slice of that onion bread you made in Week One.(find onion bread recipe here: Onion Bread Recipe on Ragourmet.com
Or you can purchase something similar here:
This is an excellent source for: olives, nuts, nut butters, snacks, look for the onion bread or similar under “bread”. The food at this site is all RAW unless it says other wise. Using this link will send me back a small commission so I would appreciate it if you would do that, it does not affect your pricing.
So, your pizza crust is the onion bread
Then you can use the Alfredo Sauce from Friday on Week Three (recipe below) this is also called White sauce…it’s cheesy and yummy…spread it on the bread-if you prefer use some Sunny pate instead, or as I used in the video you can use beanless hummus.
Then on top of that use a marinara sauce-there’s a recipe in Week One, Saturday, for marinara sauce.(find marinara sauce recipe here: http://rawgourmet.com/recipes) But hey, you don’t have to get all fancy, just chop up a tomato, put a little sea salt or Trocomare * or Herbamare** on it, some Frontier pizza spice and pile that on top of the white sauce.
Then use any or all of these:
chopped fresh oregano
chopped onions, shallots or scallions
chopped red pepper
or what ever suits you
** great sea salt based products look for them at your health food store, perfect seasoning time after time with these, worth the price they last for a long time.
And you’ve just made Raw Pizza from food you had in the house, in just a few moments…enjoy!
>White sauce or Cheeze:
Prep time 20 minutes, 2-3 hours to thicken in refrigerator
1 cup raw macadamia nuts
1 cup raw cashews
1/2 cup raw pine nuts
1 cup water or more as needed
2 lemons, juiced
1.5-2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
2 teaspoons Nama Shoyu or pinch of sea salt
Soak all the nuts for 2 hours. Drain, rinse and drain again. Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. Refrigerate 2-3 hours to thicken. The sauce should be the consistency of sour cream, if it is too thick, thin with a small amount of additional water.
This will keep in a cold refrigerator for 3-4 days maybe a little longer.
