My favourite raw cookbook is ‘Eat Raw, Eat Well’ by Douglas McNish. When I say it’s my favourite, that doesn’t mean I actually ‘cook’ from it. It’s my favourite in terms of reading it like a novel and seeing all these amazing recipes. I have made quite a few of the smoothies which are delicious and plan on featuring more of these. Many of the recipes use a dehydrator and I really need to dust mine off and get it back in to action.
Today’s raw breakfast was the Apple, Almond and Ginger Chia Seed Bowl. The only equipment involved is a food processor– the process involved chopping up almonds, apples, ginger with a splash of almond milk (I reduced the recipe as it serves four) then adding some cinnamon, chia seeds, hemp seed and more sliced apple. There’s an option for including a peach which I used instead of adding the second apple, and I used pumpkin seeds as I’ve run out of hemp seed:
This was delicious and will certainly be a raw breakfast I will make again in the warmer weather, which has started (boo, I really dislike the heat of our summers here). I’m looking forward to playing around with the nuts. Oh come on, you know what I mean!
