Our recipe this month has been provided by Diann, our raw food guru! Diann will be running a raw food course – Live Raw, Live Vital – here at Only Natural commencing 7th January 2015 (places are limited so book now) and she has provided us with one of her staple recipes as a taster!
When made this keeps for up to five days in the fridge. It’s a real “go to” to brighten up a courgette salad, or add to raw burgers or as a raw pizza topping (all of which will be covered on the course). Its quick and easy and if you want a little extra kick you can add a pinch of Cayenne pepper to the mix (this will improve your circulation and strengthen and tone all your organs).
2 cups diced organic tomatoes
½ cup sundried tomatoes (soaked for at least four hours, but better overnight)
2tsp hemp oil
1 tbs apple cider vinegar
4-5 Medjool dates soaked for at least two hours (you can use normal pitted organic dates either)
A dash of Braggs Liquid Aminos
A clove of organic minced garlic
Small piece of ginger finely chopped (About ½ to 1 inch to taste)
The aminos will be salty so go easy and adjust to taste.
Using dates as a sweetener is a natural low glycaemic option, it also provides added nutrients and roughage that you won’t find in sugar.
Put all the ingredients in your blender and give it a blitz.
Pour into a clean dry jar or bottle and store in the fridge.
With love, Diann
