My sister has been in town this weekend and we’ve had a great time. My kids have pretty much ignored me, except when they ask me to bring them and Aunt Jenn some food. That’s all I’m good for when their beloved Aunt is around. She does take a pass on helping them in the bathroom, so I also get called up for wiping duty. The rest of the time I’m relegated to another room, which really hasn’t been all that bad. Yesterday morning the husband and I got to read the entire Sunday paper AND drink our morning beverages while they were still hot as Aunt Jenn played every single board game and dressed each barbie. Thanks sister!
Insert transition from personal anecdote to raw food recipe now….
I made this recipe again last week, inspired by a big bag of farmer’s market tomatoes that were this.close to being over ripe. As I said in the original blog post, this does not taste like traditional pizza. You won’t think you are biting into a big slice of cheesy Pizza Hut pizza (or, my personal favorite, the Baked Potato Pizza from Pizza Luce in Minneapolis), but it is a tasty dish with a crispy cracker-like crust, a really rich tasting tomato sauce and a cheesy sprinkle topping
Raw Tomato Pizza
Original Air Date: October 20, 2010
- 1/4 c buckwheat, soaked and dehydrated and ground
- 1.5 c chopped celery
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 c water
- 1/2 c flax seeds, ground
1. Blend celery, oil, salt and water until smooth. Add flax meal and mix well. Add buckwheat powder and blend well.
2. Spread batter onto lined dehydrator tray – it will fill it about halfway
3. Dehydrate for 8 hrs at 104. Flip and dehydrate another 4 hours at 104.
Raw Tomato Sauce
quite good on its own as a dip or sauce for cooked or raw noodles.
- 1.5 cups sweet tomatoes – mostly seeded
- 1 pitted date
- 1/4 tsp oregano
- 1/2 tsp fresh rosemary
- 1/4 c olive oil
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes
Blend all ingredients until smooth
Savory Sprinkle Topping
- 1/4 c pine nuts, ground
- 1/4 c nutritional yeast
- 1/4 tsp salt
Mix together in a food processor until a parm cheese-like powder forms
To Make Pizza: Make all three components and combine.
Hope you all had a great weekend!
