Re: [RawPortland] Raw mexican recipes
- in my personal opinion, i like the mexican food recipes in juliano's uncookbook, RAW.of course, salsa and guacamole are living foods.and smart monkey foods often offers mexican flavors at their vegan nights dinners on wednesday (like mexican terrine, which is like an incredible taco salad), and cheeze-stuffed mild chiles with mole sauce...yum! info at www.smartmonkeyfoods.com.in the text below, pls see one of my original recipes, which is a big favorite at my house: tortilla soup.Celeste CrimiBvtn, OR
Mocked up by Celeste Crimi
Use all raw, preferably certified organic ingredients, and substitute to taste
Serves 4-6 as part of a meal, or 2 hungry friends as a big dinner
For soup base:
1 ½-2 c corn, fresh or frozen by you (storebought frozen corn is cooked)
1 T onion, minced
juice ½ lemon
4 c filtered water
¼ c olive oil
1 ½ tsp sea salt
1 ripe, red, hot pepper, minced tiny (I use scissors for this)i.e. Serrano or Thai
spices for soup (rough approximations, let your own taste be the guide):
¼ tsp paprika
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
¼ tsp coriander
½ tsp dried lime peel powder
¼ tsp rosemary
1/8 tsp black pepper
¼ tsp white pepper
1/8 tsp cinnamon
at least one large avocado
dehydrated crackers of choice
Warm soup in double boiler or similar low heat, taking care steam never forms, and that the chef can comfortably rest a finger in the soup, even on the bottom of the pan. If you dont trust yourself, use a low temperature kitchen thermometer.
Place at least ¼ c diced avocado in the bottom of each serving bowl, then ladle soup to spill around the avocado. Either crumble crackers into soup and serve immediately, or serve crackers on the side and allow diners to crumble/dip at will.
Variations: If raw corn is unavailable, finely minced jicama makes a fine substitute. Like corn, it is sweet, crunchy and juicy.----- Original Message -----From: charlie_brushSent: Friday, August 27, 2004 10:59 AMSubject: [RawPortland] Raw mexican recipesHey y'all-
