Green Weeks: Three Course Meal

Green Weeks, Day Nine

Today you get recipes!!!

First Course: 
Green Juice with cayenne pepper and tumeric

Second Course: 
Raw "Fried" Rice
Adapted from The Accidental Vegetarian. And this recipe makes A LOT of food
Ingedients:
  • 1 head of cauliflower
  • 1/2 package of peas, frozen
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 white onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup cilantro and parsley
  • 1 inch piece of lemongrass
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1-2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp ginger crushed
  • Tamari or soy sauce to taste
  • 1/2 cup hemp seeds
Chop all larger vegetables into smaller pieces. In a food processor, pulse bell pepper, onion, lemongrass, garlic, cilantro, and parsley, until finely minced. Place all into a separate bowl and then process small amounts of chopped cauliflower until it reaches the consistency of rice. Mix with the previously processed items and remaining ingredients.
This can be served warm from the dehydrator, a pan, oven, or raw.
*I also added chickpeas to mine... just for fun.

Served with the best salad ever. Lime, lemon, and olive oil dressing with Mache lettuce (sooooo good), avocado, and thinly sliced onion.
And who the heck can eat anything without plopping hummus on top?!
Yeah, I can't either.

Third Course:
(Almost) Raw Three Berry Walnut Fig Bars

Layer one:
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup figs
  • drizzle of agave syrup
  • dash of salt

Pulse all crust ingredients in a food processor until it becomes sticky and combined. I left some chunks but feel free to play with the consistency.

Scoop half of the walnut fig mixture into a glass container of choice and pack down to form a crust. Set aside the remaining crust mixture.
Layer two:
  • 1-2 cup berries, frozen or fresh (I used a raspberry, blackberry, blueberry mixture)
  • agave to sweeten
  • 2 tsp lemon juice, or to taste
  • dash of salt
Blend all in food processor and layer half of the berry mixture onto the crust.
Repeat Layer one and two
 Now enjoy
It's so pretty I had to post another picture
