Ani's Raw Food Kitchen

While I love raw food, I have difficult time eating a high raw diet in the winter.  Now that spring is starting to roll around, this week I'm trying to eat 90% or more raw and it seemed like a good time to break out one of my favorite raw books: Ani's Raw Food Kitchen: Easy, Delectable Living Foods Recipes

Tonight I opted for the Baja Raw Burritos.  They are filled with a seasoned almond/walnut "meat" and brazil nut cilantro cheeze. Honestly I was expecting to like this recipe, but wasn't planning on being completely wowed.  These are amazingly good!  Believe me, I can't wait to put together a batch of the leftovers tomorrow.

These are supposed to be rolled up, but I decided to keep the leaf open so you could see the tasty fillings. This one is topped with salsa.  Tomorrow I'll add some extras like carrots and tomato slices too.

My photo really doesn't do these justice.

If you don't have the book, there is similar recipe on her website.  Though, it is definitely worth buying.  Ani introduced me to one of my favorite smoothies that she calls the Pear Frosty.  The Mango Lassi and all of the Mylks are really delicious.  I'm looking forward to trying another new recipe later in the week!
