Serves 2 as a main course, 4 as a starter 

1 large head of romaine lettuce or other favourite lettuce
2 small handfuls of watercress
1 cup mixed seedless grapes, cut in half
1 apple, diced
2 sticks celery, finely diced
1 cup walnuts, roughly broken up*
1 small handful of fresh flat-leaf parsley

*As an optional step with the walnuts, you can soak them for 20 minutes, then drain and rinse, followed by a toss in 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 tablespoon onion powder and 1/2 teaspoon fine Himalayan salt. Then dehydrate at 115 degrees for 12 hours. When they are completely dried, roughly break them up by hand.

For the dressing

1/2 teaspoon mustard powder
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup cashews (soaked for 20 minutes), or 1/4 cup almond butter, I used pecans
1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt
3 or 4 turns of black pepper

- Tear the lettuce and watercress by hand and transfer to a bowl with your grapes and celery.

- Chop the tough stalks off the parsley and then finely chop the leaves, adding them to your bowl.

- Put all the dressing ingredients, along with the parsley stalks into a blender and blend until smooth.

- Put enough dressing into the bowl, so that all the leaves are lightly covered. When tossed together, add the walnuts and toss the salad lightly again.

- Transfer to your serving plates and then finish with a little of the macadamia blue cheese. If you don’t have the macadamia blue cheese, a quick macadamia Parmesan recipe can be made by grating 1/2 cup unsoaked macadamias on a Microplane and mixing in 2 teaspoons nutritional yeast and 1/2 teaspoon salt, which looks great sprinkled over the top.

This is my first time making a raw pie. I just finished making this and it is looking/tasting delicious. This will be a fantastic raw Thanksgiving dessert!

I know Thanksgiving is already here, but there is still time for other end of year Holidays for you to make food. Then again, why do you need a reason to make delicious things like this?

5-Ingredient Raw Apple Pie (Raw, Soy Free, Oil Free, Low Sodium)
Makes one 9″ pie.
Ingredients:
3 cups sunflower seeds
1 1/2 cups raisins, divided
4 medium apples, thinly sliced into half moons
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
In the bowl of a food processor, pulse the sunflower seeds and 1 cup of the raisins until finely ground.
Press two-thirds of the dough into the bottom of a pie pan, reserving the last third to form a lattice topping for the pie, and place the pan in the freezer to firm up.
Meanwhile, place the apple slices in a large bowl. Blend the remaining 1/2 cup of raisins, apple cider vinegar, cinnamon, and 3 tbsp of water in the food processor until smooth and pour over the apple slices, stirring well to coat.
Remove the pie crust from the freezer and, working in circles from the outside in, layer all of the coated apple slices into the pie pan.
On a cutting board or counter, press the remaining dough into as thin of a rectangle as possible. Cut the dough into strips and arrange them on top of the pie in a criss-crossing pattern to form a lattice crust.

Welcome Tumblr Going Raw

Hello Tumblr,
This is raw food involved, we are here to keep ourselves and especially you interested and involved in making a change in the way you prepare your food. Our mission is to bring you recipes ranked accordingly to difficulty and resources required, inspiration through the beauty of food and a community to connect with.
This means we want you to share your journey of new food ventures with us, have discussions, take pictures, show off your creations! It is important to feel like you belong with others seeking the same goals as you. We know this better than anyone, here in Alaska, it can be tough to find people with the same outlook on food and health. So again, stay connected and try new things on the beginning of our journey of going raw.
Best regards and welcome,
