One of my favorite parts of my approach to food is the freedom to experiment with the many different types of “clean” eating. Thanks to a recent visit to Pure Food and Wine, as well as the encyclopedic information provided by Gena, lately I have been enjoying forays into the world of raw foods.
Summer seems like the ideal period to delve into the raw world. In an apartment like mine, where there isn’t much ventilation, an excuse to leave the oven off and still eat a satisfying meal is always welcome.
So, I decided it was time to throw together a raw recipe of my own. An opportunity to play with my food and essentially turn a salad into something pretty? Well worth it.
raw zucchini boats
- 2 medium zucchini
- 1 roma tomato
- 1/4 c fresh oregano
- 1 T evoo
- pinch salt
Hollow out zucchini (leave about 1/4″ on each side). In blender or food processor, combine inside of zucchini with remaining ingredients. Blend well; pour into zucchini shells.
This was a) incredibly quick, b) incredibly fun, c) incredibly tasty. Whoever says clean eating is boring has no idea what they’re missing.
Have you tried any raw food recipes?
