Ani’s Raw Food Essentials: Recipes and Techniques for Mastering the Art of Live Food has become one of my all time favorite raw food recipe book. Every week I have sampled at least one recipe from the book, and every time I am quite pleased with the results. This past week I sampled a few recipes and put them together for a meal.
This week I made the Sun Burgers (page 298), topped with the most delicious vegan bacon, Coconut Bacon (page 76-77). I didn’t have all the right ingredients for the bacon, but I substituted with Nama Shoyu and Hemp Oil – boy was it ever good!
In addition, I made the Basic Ice Cream (page 277) recipe, and used it as the base for my Strawberry-Cherry Ice Cream, while I slightly modified two other ice cream recipes in the book. They included the Mexican Chocolate Ice Kream (page 277), and the Lucuma Ice Cream (page 278). I used the three flavors to create a Neapolitan Ice Cream Sundae dessert. It was absolutely yummy!!!
There are so many wonderful recipes, great information, resources, and more. I definitely think this book, Raw Food Essentials is a “must have for any raw food library”!
