Rabbit Recipe: Raw “Caesar” Dressing

23 Nov

In an effort to improve our diet Husband and I have decided to replace at least 50% of our meals with raw food,

or as my daDdy affectionately refers to it, Rabbit Food.  Each Tuesday I’ll share my latest Rabbit Recipe, along with our raw food successes (and failures).

Enjoy!  })i({

You’ll need:

-2 Tbsp Olive Oil

-the juice from one lemon

– 1/4 cup sunflower seeds, ground

-2 Tbsp. Agave

– a pinch of chili powder

(sorry about the teeny tiny picture… my dinner was much bigger than this IRL, I promise! I served my salad with split pea soup — not raw, but still DEEEElicious)!

Friends!  We finally got our interwebs hooked up again last night, and BOY am I glad to be using an actual keyboard!  As I haven’t had time to scavenge food yet, I had to make this week’s recipe with things I already had on hand.  Luckily, this is one of my favorite recipes, so I almost always have the key ingredients!

TOMATO SALAD

You’ll need:

-as many tomatoes as you’re hungry for, in whatever varieties you like.

-a few Tbsps. of olive oil

-a bunch of fresh basil, chopped

– sea salt & pepper

Chop up your tomatoes & toss with the rest of the ingredients.  Take bets as to whether or not the bowl will make it from the kitchen to the table (ours rarely does). YUM.

Pro Tips:

If you’re feeling a little crazy, try throwing in a handful of corn or chopped onion

If you’re feeling a LOT crazy, toss in some edamame or soaked beans

If you’re feeling HELLA CRAZY, throw in some chili powder & lime juice or some balsamic vinegar

If you’re feeling a little too much like a crunchy vegan hippie, chop your tomato bits smaller, toss in some fresh mozzarella bits, let marinate for a half-hour or so, and serve with toast.

Rabbit Recipe: Garlic & Pepper Soup

9 Nov

In an effort to improve our diet, Husband and I have decided to replace at least 50% of our meals with raw food,

or as my daD affectionately refers to it, Rabbit Food.  Each Tuesday I’ll share my lastest “Rabbit Recipe,” along with our raw food successes (and failures).

Garlic & Pepper Soup

You’ll need:

4 red peppers

1c. onion

6 cloves fresh garlic

1/2 Tablespoon fresh rosemary

2 tomatoes

4 Tablespoons olive oil

8 strawberries

4 Tablespoons honey

salt & pepper to taste.

*Put all this stuff in your blender or food processor and pulverize it.  Then, drink it.

Pro Tips:

1. We used green peppers instead of red peppers.  I *hope* that’s why it turned out brown instead of red.

2. Raw garlic is a lot more…garlic-y than roasted, so those six cloves are going to be mighty spicy if you’re not used to eating raw garlic. You may want to use less.  Unless you like spice, of course.  It’s up to you, really.  Do whatever you want.  *grin*

3. I need a Vitamix blender.  Husband and I LOVED the taste of this soup, but struggled with the texture… it would have been much creamier had I used a blender with 2+ HP…

4.  Don’t be afraid.  Strawberries and honey actually DO go with garlic & peppers.  Trust me.  The flavor was awesome.  Now, if we could just figure out how to get past our texture issues…  })i({
