[RAW] Beet Ravioli w/Parsley Cashew Filling

The weather is starting to warm up a little bit - 60 degrees in Boise in the middle of February isn't exactly the norm for the City of Trees - but I'm not complaining (at least about that).

I've been craving a raw food cleanse lately. I keep thinking about it and wanting it but I know that's not exactly what y'all come here to read about. Y'all love the comfort food and I don't blame you, I do too! But I want to impress upon you that all food can be comfort food - including raw food. It's not all just lack luster, flavorless salads, or monoeating; and it doesn't all have to take two days to prepare (I'm looking at you dehydrator).

Here's what I had for dinner last night and it took all of ten minutes to prepare and about 3 minutes to scarf. It's a little on the fatty side if you eat all the cashew cream filling - and I did - but fuck it, it's still raw and chances are if you're currently doing a raw food cleanse you probably found yourself eating salad and bananas all day. Indulge - that's what I say.

1 beet, peeled and thinly sliced in rounds
2/3 c raw cashews
1/3 c water
3 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 garlic clove
salt, to taste
1/4 c fresh parsley
  1. Use your food processor to blend up the cashews to the salt. When it's all thick and creamy incorporate the parsley. Stuff the cashew stuff between two beet rounds. Eat.
