My husband gave me this un-cookbook for my birthday all the way back in July. It's 'Going Raw' by Judita Wignall. Be sure to check out her http://www.rawjudita.com/.
|You can only imagine how much I was itching to give the recipes a try|
Some recipes on my must-try list include Herbed Cashew Hemp Cheese, Sunshine Smoothie, Chia Pudding, Jicama-Papaya-Mango Salad, Mexian Spiced Brownies and of course the Apple Cobbler with Maple Cream.
To respect Judita's copyright, I won't list the recipe here but I will mention that I did not follow it to the letter. I chose to omit the agave nectar because of its high fructose content and used maple syrup instead even though it's not raw. Next time I'm going to try making a syrup with dates and use that mixture as the sweetener.
I also chose to omit the rolled oats. Ingredients I didn't have on hand were raisins and a vanilla bean. I used extract instead (I know, heresy) but next time I'll be completely ready. Lastly, I used walnuts for the crumble.
With all of those modifications, the final result was delicious!
In all, I took about 45 minutes to put everything together and yielded 4 servings. I need to practice my knife skills and get a better blender. I struggled with that cashew cream. For my first try, I was happy!
Have you tried any new foods or recipes this week?
