BLOOMINGTONRAW Recipes and Pics from June Rawluck

Recipes and Pics from June Rawluck:
Raw Pasta Alfredo with Vegan Sausage Bits

Sausage (recipe from the Boutenkos):
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 head lettuce
1/2 cup olive oil
5 cloves garlic
1/2 cup onion powder
1 tbsp caraway seeds
1 tbsp dired sage
1/2 bunch fresh basil
Blend all ingredients in food processor, shape into bits or
patties. (This recipe made about twice as much as I put into the dish
I brought. Also, recipe is very sticky - it helps to put the shaped
bits into the dehydrator for an hour or so at 105 degrees to make them
easier to handle.)

2 small zucchini, spiralized or sliced or shredded into
spaghetti-like pieces.
(In hindsight I would have put this in a strainer for twenty
minutes or so, since the liquid from the zucchini watered down my
sauce more than I would have liked!)

Alfredo Sauce (recipe from Jackie Ayala & David Steinberg):
1/2 cup organic stone-crushed olive oil
1 drop each therapeutic grade basil, thyme, and oregano essential oils
water and meat of 1 young Thai coconut
1/3 cup citrus juice blend (I used orange and lime)
1 tbsp Celtic sea salt
2 large cloves garlic w/ skins
1/2 cup macadamia nuts
In glass bowl combine olive oil and essential oils.
In vita-mix blender, combine coconut water and meat, citrus juice
blend, salt and garlic. Blend on "5" until mixture is smooth. Slowly
add macadamia nuts while machine is running and increase speed to "9."
Scrape sides to be sure everything is well blended. Turn speed down
to "7," add olive oil, and continue to blend for another 5 seconds.
(Sauce will be warm from all the blending - be careful with the
vita-mix not to blend too long or sauce will get too hot to be raw!)

Arrange pasta in serving dish, pour alfredo sauce over top, then drop
sausage bits on top of sauce. Enjoy!
