CELESTIAL PECAN PIE

From Hooked on Raw by Rhio
http://www.rawfoodinfo.com

5 bananas
1 papaya (or mango, or a pint of strawberries, sliced)
1 cup pecans (soaked in water for 1 hour)
1 1/2 cups pecans (don’t soak)
6 z. filtered water
5-10 dates, soaked
1/2 vanilla bean, cut into tiny pieces
1 heaping tbsp. raw honey (or to taste)
dash of NamaShoyu

1) Soak one cup of pecans in filtered water. Set aside.

2) In a 9-inch glass pie pan, arrange one layer of sliced bananas (2 1/2 bananas should do it). Lay the banana slices in a spiral pattern with one slice slightly overlapping the other until you have covered the entire pie pan. Also put a layer going up the sides of the pie pan. Next, cut the papaya into 1/4 inch thin slices and layer the papaya over the banana. Over the papaya, put another layer of slightly overlapping banana slices. Now with your hands, compress the fruit down evenly. Set aside.

3) In a blender, put 1 cup of soaked (drained) pecans, dates, 6 oz. filtered water and tiny pieces of vanilla bean and blend to a fine cream. Taste the cream, and if it is not sweet enough for your taste, add more dates.

4) Pour the cream over the fruit in the pie pan. Put the pie pan into the dehydrator and dehydrate at 95? F for 3 hours.

5) In a small bowl, blend the raw honey with just a little water and a dash of NamaShoyu. Prepare the unsoaked pecans for the topping by tossing gently with the honeyed water to coat the pecans.

6) After 3 hours, take the pie out of the dehydrator and place one layer of the prepared pecans on top of the pie. Place them artistically radiating towards the center of the pie.

7) Chill the pie at least one hour before serving.

Serves 6-8.Keeps for a few days in the refrigerator.

1 1/2 C fresh pumpkin puree

1/2 tsp. ginger

1/2 C raisins
1/2 C walnuts, soaked and chopped

Neat Balls

from The Raw Gourmet by Nomi Shannon & Brian Clemment

Neat Balls are great just out of the dehydrator, or they can be made in advance, dehydrated, refrigerated for a day or two then touched up in the dehydrator for an hour or two to restore crispness and warmth. If you do not yet own a dehydrator, they can also be lightly warmed in an oven at the lowest temperature with the door partially open (this may destroy some enzymes) A nine tray dehydrator can make enough for a crowd. The dehydrator will have to run longer with that much, so the temperature should be set a bit higher than usual. Make burgers instead of balls by flattening them for a great main course.

3 tablespoons flax seeds, ground
6 tablespoons water
1 cup carrot pulp
1 cup sunflower seeds, ground
1/2 cup finely minced celery
6 tablespoons finely minced onion (or more to taste)
2 tablespoons finely minced parsley
2 tablespoons finely minced red pepper
2 teaspoons liquid amino?s
Use an electric coffee grinder to finely grind the flax seeds and the sunflower seeds. The carrot pulp is what is left over after you juice carrots. If you don?t own a juicer yet, ask for carrot pulp at a juice bar.

In a blender, blend the ground flax seed and water, immediately pour mixture into a bowl and set aside. Rinse the blender container out immediately. In a medium size bowl, thoroughly stir together carrot pulp, ground sunflower seeds, celery, onion, parsley, red pepper and liquid amino?s. Add the flax seed mixture and mix thoroughly. Add more water if necessary to make the consistency to form patties. Form into six 1/2 inch thick patties. Dehydrate for 4-8 hours, or leave in sun until warm, or place in warm oven for 10-15 minutes. Makes 6 balls or patties.
