I have been on quite a raw kick, lately. The weather is still pretty hot in sunny Southern California, and the last thing you want to do in 90+ degrees is turn on the stove. I picked up Gena Hamshaw’s new book “Choosing Raw” and have been inspired by her creative, raw spins on traditional dishes.
My husband requested a raw stir fry and it was much easier than I imagined. He sliced up the veggies (since I have not got over my mandolin fear) and I went to work on a sauce. He thinly sliced up the following veggies:
- 1 yellow bell pepper
- 1 zucchini
- 1 carrot
We also threw in a handful of edamame and broccoli.
- sesame oil
- rice vinegar
- turmeric powder
- cayenne pepper
- ginger powder
I used a dash here and a spoonful there. I was constantly tasting and whisking the sauce till I got it just right.
The flavors melded so nicely together and it was much more filling than you would think. I don’t think I can get enough sesame oil in my food lately, and you really cannot go wrong with a dish that contains both sriracha and avocado, right?
What is your favorite raw meal?
