INGREDIENTS (MAIN DISH)
- ¼ c each red, green, yellow bell peppers, diced
- ½ c carrot pieces
- 1 c mushrooms, sliced
- 2 c green beans, roughly chopped
- ½ c basil, chiffonade (see note below)
- 1 Tbsp rosemary, diced
- 1 ½ Tbsp tarragon, diced
- ¼ c hemp seeds (optional, added last)
INGREDIENTS (FOR DRESSING)
- 1 c cashews, soaked
- 1½ tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- ½ c water
- 2 Tbsp lemon
- ¼ c apple cider vinegar
INGREDIENTS (FOR CARAMELIZED ONIONS)
- ½ each large white and red onion
- ¼ c olive oil
- 1 tsp salt
1/ Cut onions in the way you would cut onion rings (with the blade parallel to the two roots sticking out). Break into rings. Loosely chop with varied sizes. Cover and lightly massage with marinade of olive oil and salt. Place in the bottom of the casserole dish in the dehydrator for 3-4 hours, until the onions begin to shrink and soften.
2/ Blend all dressing ingredients until smooth.
3/ Put all remaining ingredients (except hemp seeds) in a bowl and coat well with dressing. Add the hemp seeds last, and mix well.
4/ Dehydrate at 115 degrees for 6-8 hours or overnight.
Tip: “Chiffonade”, is a technique often used for basil. To do this, first pile the leaves on top of one another, then roll the leaves together. Cut the whole pile into small parallel strips.
Tip: I hope I’m not going to get in trouble with the Raw Food Police *looking over my shoulder, whispering quietly*, but you may be able to do this with your oven. If you have a toaster oven or oven that goes to a low temperature, you can put this inside instead of using a dehydrator. Of course, if you do have a dehydrator, that is your best bet to be sure the dish is tasty AND raw when you are finished.
