GOT A MEAT A POTATOES KIND OF GUY? TRY MY RAW MEATLOAF
In case you havent been following my blogs as of late, I am a a 3-6 detox diet myself and right now I am 100% Raw Vegan. I am getting all of my vital nutrients for uncooked, unprocessed, ALIVE AND LIVING FOODS. The following recipe is on oldie but goodie and a great introduction to any one new to live foods. It is delicious and can be served in a variety of ways. I often make this raw dish and serve it with a side of mashed Sweet Potato or Russet, reminding me of my gramma's recipe. Try it for your family and see what they think. Just because the Meatloaf is raw, you can still serve it with some cooked foods is you like, such as potatoes, veggies,or on a sandwich. It is pure decadence when served a meat loaf sub served with Manna Bread or some other live sprouted bread and a side of Rawing Kale Chips. ( recipe can be found if you search my blog). So heres your ingredient list:
1.5 cups walnuts
1.5 cups sunflower seeds
1.5 cups Almonds
1 tbsp minced garlic
1.2 tbsp celtic sea salt
1/2 cup chopped parsley
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 cups mushrooms ( optional)
1 tbsp ginger
1/2 tbsp dried rosemary
1 cup red bell pepper
1 tablespoon basil
1/2 cup olive oil
Cover and soak all nuts and seeds in a bowl of filtered water for at least 4 hours.
Drain and rinse well and put into food processor with garlic. Process until it becomes doughy adding olive oil to thin.
Stir in remaining ingredients and mix well.
Form into a meat loaf shape and put in dehydrator or oven at 90-100 degrees for one hour. Best to use a dehydrator!!!
Remove and add raw ketchup on top, or some other type of low sugar brand. In a pinch I use Westbrae NO SUGAR Ketchup with is fruit juice sweetened.
Place back in dehydrator for another 2.5 hours.
Remove and garish with parsley and ketchup and serve warm. DETOX DIVA-licious.
