Raw Combo - Week 6

I've gotten a bit behind with the Combo updates.
Briefly, here is last week's menu:


Apple Cinnamon Smoothie:
A blend of Apple Juice, Sprouted Almonds, Cinnamon, Dates, and Banana

Fruity Green Smoothie:
Orange, Spinach, Banana, Berries, Water


Mains:

Spaghetti and Meatballs
Zucchini pasta with sundried tomato sauce, topped with nutballs from Rawvolution.


Spicy Thai Wraps By Sarma Melngailis

Spicy, creamy cabbage and veggie filling in collard green leaves. I highly recommend this!



Sloppy Joe Sandwich From Rawvolution

Crumbled nutloaf mixed with mexican tomato sauce, served on onion bread with shredded lettuce. Yummers! This was a real hit with my clients.




Fennel and Cherry Tomato Tart with Macadamia Cheese By Russell James


I made this tarte with Elaina Love's quiche crust and used Carmi's pinenut parmesan in place of the macadamia cheese.


This is absolutely delicious!!!!! For anyone who doesn't care for the licoricey taste of fennel, the marinade takes that flavour away, making it really soft with some sweetness.


Sides:

Caesar Salad By Woody Harrelson

I did this salad for one of my food classes and people really enjoyed it. I can easily say that it's one of my personal favourite dressings. Woo hoo, go Woody!


Thai Cucumber Salad By The Boutenko Kids "Eating Without Heating"

Sliced cucumbers with lots of fresh herbs, spices, and crunchy sunflower seeds.


Dessert:

Fruity Cheesecake with Mango Sauce

One of my sweet creations in my Just Desserts ebook. Flavours of mango, pineapple, and pear swirled together into a creamy cheesecake.




Oaty Crumble Balls

Oats, Nuts, Cinnamon, and Dates make up these simple but yummy balls.

Just wanted to tell you that I love your blog. The food pics look delicious, especially the ones from your visit with Carmella. You two are so lucky to have met.

Your menu sounds fabulous. I've made a lot of those recipes. Sometimes I change up the sloppy joe for a mock pulled bbq, using carrot pulp. You should try it sometime.
