Dinner in the Raw

Think preparing raw foods requires special ingredients and time-consuming processes? Think again. The following recipes by Mark Reinfeld and Jennifer Murray, coauthors of The 30 Minute Vegan, prove that raw cuisine can be fast, easy, and delicious year-round.

You don’t have to make a radical change in your diet to feel the benefits of eating raw foods, says Reinfeld. “Our suggestion is to take it easy. Eat most of a meal raw or eat a lot of it raw—we like to make cooked pasta, but then top it with a raw sauce, for example.”

Avocados give this luscious dessert its rich, creamy texture. “We always have fun with this recipe because we ask people to guess what’s in it,” says Murray. The key is to use avocados that are neither underripe nor overripe, both of which have superstrong avocado flavor.

Your Mom, Roberta, is a distant friend through my very dear friend, Sarah. Roberta gave me your "idiot's guide to raw" book last year & it helped me so much in my transition from carnivore to vegan/raw for health reasons. Thanks for all the wonderful recipes & the terrific support the book has been.
