Cookbook Review: Rawlicious

A cookbook is a misnomer because Rawlicious is about doing it in the raw; no cooking allowed.

Food can be grown, foraged, food processed (in the food processor not processed foods), blended, strained, infused, power juiced and dehydrated.

The authors Peter and Beryn Daniel are both classically trained chefs who have lived and eaten on two continents but are boldly bringing the raw foods and super foods movement to South Africa.

Rawlicious burst with stunning photography.

Salads and soups burst on the pages. Medicinal mushrooms, anyone? I can almost smell the wholesomeness of the “creamy” blender wild mushroom soup and the verdant blue-green smoothie. Unlike other raw food cookbooks, many recipes are quick to prepare requiring no special equipment except a food processor and a blender.

Think soups, dips, smoothies, and salads. According to the authors, the book Rawlicious is an invitation to where good food and good health are in perfect harmony.

Rawlicious, Delicious Raw Recipes for Radiant Health by Peter Daniel and Beryn Daniel

Recipe: Basil Pesto

This pesto has more protein than the average pesto.

3 cups fresh basil
1 clove garlic
1/3 cup macadamia nuts
1/3 cup pumpkin seeds
1/8 cup lemon juice
½ tsp. salt
1/3 cup olive oil

In a food processor, blend all the ingredients until well chopped and combined. Pesto freezes well so make a big batch and store.
