Raw Mashed Potatoes
1 head cauliflower, broken into florets
1/4 C cashews or macadamia nuts
1 cloves garlic, peeled and minced (or to taste)
2 tbsp olive oil, or to taste
sea salt to taste
black pepper to taste

In a food processor, grind nuts fine.
Add cauliflower, and garlic, and process fine.

Add olive oil until mixture looks like fluffy mashed potatoes.

You may want to add a little water if too thick.
Remove from food processor and sprinkle on black pepper to taste

Raw Stuffing

1 C sunflower seeds, soaked and drained
1 C celery
1  onion
1 clove garlic
1 T sage, thyme, savory or any other spice you would like to add, I find that fresh herbs are much nicer                                                1/4 cup parsley

Salt and pepper to taste

In a food processor, grind soaked sunflower seeds fine.

Grind flax seeds fine in a coffee grinder.

Remove ground seeds to a bowl.

Place all ingredients in the food processor and mince.

Adjust spices and salt and pepper to taste
Place in a pie tin, or glass cake dish of suitable size and dehydrate for several hours until dressing has reached your desired consistency.

This recipe I tried using almonds, which worked fine, but a little drier than sunflower seeds, Sunflower seeds work much better.


Rejuvelac

What the heck is Rejuvelac??

Rejuvelac is fermented, energy rich drink. It’s a great aid for digestion and elimination due to the fermentation process.
It is a great source for Vitamins B, C & E, amino acids, enzymes and helps improve bowel flora.

Rejuvelac helps to replace the enzymes that cooked food destroys. That is why you can either have a few drinks of it each day or incorporate it into raw soups etc. It is easily digestible and very healthy. I have only been adding it for a couple of weeks, but have noticed a big difference.
You can either use wheat berries or cabbage. I much prefer the cabbage, I don’t know why but it seems that is what my body wants right now, so I am following it!

Rejuvelac

-31/2 cups pure water
-6 cups coarsely chopped cabbage

Add water and cabbage to blender ( you will have to do this in 2 – 3 amounts as it won’t all fit in). Blend at low speed for 30 seconds then high speed for another 30 seconds. Pour into a clean mason jar even sterile is good as you don’t want any bad bacteria, as you can see here, I used a BIG jar. Lightly cover with a cloth and let stand at room temperature for three days.

Strain off the cabbage and pour into a container and put into the fridge. You can either then compost the cabbage or p our more water on it and cover and let stand at room temperature and it should be ready in one day instead of three.
This time discard or compost the cabbage.
It will keep for one week in the fridge.
You can drink 1/2 cup before meals or replace water in raw recipes with the rejuvelac.
You will feel the difference.
