Raw Stuffed Portobello and Chocolate Mouse... Yum!

If you can eat delicious food that's raw, it's easier on your digestive tract than eating cooked foods and it's more nutritious. The enzymes in the food help with digestion which gives your own GI tract a little break from having to do all the work itself. Give these a try. They're delicious and good for you too!

Organic Raw Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms
All ingredients are raw. Start with a couple portobello mushrooms. I marinated the portobello in sesame seed oil, balsamic vinegar and some spices for about 30 minutes. The spices included cilantro, oregano, rosemary, Himalayan salt and pepper. The stuffing ingredients are as flows:

  • Juice from one lime
  • 1/2 cup of cashews soaked for a couple hours or over night
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 1 clove garlic
  • A few basil leaves
  • A couple pinches of Himalayan salt

The stuffing ingredients are blended together.  All three dishes are placed in a dehydrator for about 30 minutes. Then remove the dishes, stuff the mushrooms, and place back in the dehydrator for about an hour.

Raw Chocolate Mouse
I had left over soaked cashews and cashew cream added to raw chocolate pudding makes a great mouse. There was about 1 cup of soaked cashers remaining, so I blended them with water to make a cream. I added two avocados, a heaping table spoon of raw cocoa and some agave syrup to taste. Yum yum.
