Ani's Raw Food Essentials
This cookbook by Ani Phyo is amazing. It's hardback and pricey at $27.00, but Amazon had it discounted and I got it for my birthday. This is the raw food book I've been looking for. She takes the time to explain things and writes snippets throughout the book and has great pictures. She tells you how to dehydrate using your oven, but recommends a dehydrator which I might get if I'm so inclined later on.
I'm not about to go raw, I love tofu and other cooked foods to much, and frankly on that kind of diet, I'm constantly starved, but understand the benefits and that it works for other people.
Tonight I'm going to try one of the soups and will post the review later.
Hi Tweety, I have her first book Raw Food Kitchen, and love the Spanish Scramble. It was the very first raw food recipes I tried and I was very impressed. I am also not 100% raw, but I have been trying to be about 50% raw each day. I don't have the time to dehydrate, sprout, and spend a lot of time cooking, so this will just have to do. I will have to try the recipes you posted. When I do have time, usually on weekends, I do love to cook up ethnic foods and have made some of my own recipes.
There is a video of Ani making the Tomato Chili with Taco Nut Meat on YouTube. I think the recipe is included as well.
I have been eating raw for the summer. I definitely need this book!!!!
I just bought this book and I am anxiously awaiting its arrival in the mail. I bought it solely based on the fact that I loved her first two books so much. How is Raw Food Essentials for dehydrated recipes? I ask because I don't have a dehydrator and didn't even think about it when I ordered the book.
I have Ani's Raw Food Kitchen and I just ordered this one from Amazon today. I've been tempted for a while because of Tweety's pics, but what pushed me over the edge was that Amazon has it marked as a "special offer" for $11.18 today. If anyone has been contemplating buying this book, but didn't want to pay $27.00, today would be your chance to order it cheap!
