Quick Raw Snacks

When I get home from work, I'm usually famished and need something in my belly right away. Recently, my favorite 'after-school snack' has been fresh green juice and cilantro-jalapeño hummus on bell pepper slices or a delicious raw paté on crackers. This holds me over well until I can get a more substantial dinner prepared. I got my last raw paté from the farmer's market. My friend has a cart there called The New Leaf selling delicious and satisfying raw meals, patés, and salad dressings. However, when I need to make my own raw spread, I go to my friend Lou's recipe for 'Brazil Nut Cheeze.' Today, I'm having it with avocado.Wow is it good. You should try it too.

Here's the recipe below. Be sure to check out the rest of Lou's blog post for more quick, raw food ideas.

Lou’s Brazil Nut Cheeze
  • 1 c Brazil nuts (no need to soak these nuts)
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 - 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 t salt
  • Bunch of cilantro
  • 1/2 jalapeño seeded
Add as little water as needed for consistency.
Process all ingredients until smooth.
