This is a combination recipe that is great for refried beans. The original is from Robyn Boyd and is in her book RawSome (mostly raw with some cooked…has kid approved recipes) Her version used 2 cups of almonds only and the rest of the OPTIONAL ingredients and she used Wholeearth Latin AMerica Spice blend instead of the herbs listed. This version is from my friend Beth who is a Raw Chef and likes to keep the power of the spice in your hands!
I used to love ordering Tom Kha Gai at Thai restaurants, which is a coconut lemongrass soup with chicken in it. The theme of this month’s raw-food potluck in DC was coconuts, so I decided to see if I could make something remeniscent of the Tom Kha Gai of my memories. Lots of pleasant surprises while working with coconuts: I learned how to make my own shredded coconut and coconut butter!
This is currently our favorite meal! It is pretty basic and can be altered to fit your own taste. The dressing is also great as a dip for veggies. I have also served the cut up veggies with romaine lettuce and ‘thai coleslaw’ dressing for a variety of lettuce wraps. Always a big hit! A friend shared these recipes with me and I believe they came from Matt Amsden/RAWvolution.
This will make a grilled meat type flavor and texture. Very hearty and even chewy. I worked on this for a year. Now it’s just right. Goes well with my “Sweet Tangy Southern Barbeque Sauce” mushroom lemon dates sage thyme rosemary
