Raw Food Real World: To Do List

So here is an index of the recipes I've tried and have to try from Raw Food, Real World, along with a brief commentary, some may be left out (like Bunny Spice, coz I don't have a juicer).

  • Vanilla Brazil Nut Milk (Strawberry milk variety)
  • Cinnamon Maple Pecan Milk (wouldn't rush to make again)
  • Creamy Macadamia Milk
  • Pineapple Star Anise Lassi
  • Pina Colada
  • Creamy Coconut Shake
  • Avocolada
  • Enzyme Boost
  • Blue Sunset
  • Bee Protein (yummy)
  • Fig and Grape Cleasning Shake (would love to try but organic grapes and fresh figs are hard to find)
  • Greenmarket Salad
  • Arugala Salad
  • Sea Vegetable Salad (Would def't make again, though maybe add a little more flavor to the dressing)
  • Red Grapefruit, Avocado, and Fennel Salad (this is likely my favorite salad recipe to make; simple, rewarding, wonderful)
  • Our Favorite Filling Salad
  • Double Mango and Thai Basil Salad with Red Chile and Star Anise
  • Warm Cherry Tomato and Sweet Corn Salad (Not bad, not phenomenal)
  • Quinoa Tabouli (The quinoa was a bit firm. Maybe let it sprout a bit longer? Will likely try hemp seeds instead, next time, or cooked quinoa)
  • Quinoa and Grape Salad
  • Pineapple-Cucumber Gazpacho (I think I am making this tomorrow...)
  • Watermelon Tomato Gazpacho
  • Creamy Carrot Ginger Soup with Lime
  • Celeriac and Green Apple Soup
  • Spicy Thai Vegetable Wraps (loved @the PF&W restaurant, yet to make)
  • Tomato Tartare (oh for tomatoes to be in season, again)
  • Shitake, Avocado, and Pickled Ginger Sushi Rolls (Good, not sure if they are worth the labor, or more a raw novelty with the jicama 'rice')
  • Summer Rolls with Green Papaya
  • Lobster Mushroom and Fava Bean Tarts
  • King Oyster Mushroom and Dried Cherry Tomato Fettuccini (Simple, not impressive, but easy and quick, dehydration time aside. I prepped everything the night before, put it in the dehydrator, and enjoyed for breakfast. Would make a great portable lunch 'salad')
  • Zucchini and Green Zebra Tomato Lasagne (I have made Ani Phyo's lasagne, loved it, but will still try this)
  • Red Beet Ravioli (Was not too impressed with the results of what I tried)
  • Pumpkin and Squash Couscous
  • Soft Corn Tortillas (Delish, semi labor intensive, but totally good. Housemates loved them)
  • Asparagus and Porchini Ravioli
  • White Corn Tamales
  • Green Curry Coconut Noodles
  • Cauliflower Samosas (Delish. Made the 'wrap's with flax meal as I didn't have several thai young coconuts at the time. The sauce is particularly impressive)
  • Japanese Eggplant-Filled Scallion Pancake
  • Flatbread Pizza
  • Golden Squash Pasta (I will never make this unless a generous soul donates truffles to moi :( )
  • Spicy Peanut Coconut Noodles
  • Dark Chocolate Ganache Tart (made the crust, crust is pretty divine)
  • Pineapple Carpaccio
  • Chocolate Pudding
  • Sour Cherry Tart
  • Lime Mousse Tart
  • Pumpkin Tart
  • Lavender Ice Cream and Blueberry Sundae
  • Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Concord Grape Sorbet
  • Macaroons (Made the chocolate variety, tres decadent!)
  • Cherry Pistachio Biscotti
  • Almond Butter Cookies
  • Chewy Chocolate Freezer Fudge (quick, tasty, especially with course Himalayan sea salt)
  • Apple Crepes
  • Spiced Oatmeal with Dried Figs
  • Cranberry Maple Granola
  • Maple Cinnamon Buckwheat Crispies
  • Crunchy Honey Nut Butter and Berry Jam Sandwich
  • Cinnamon Date French Toast
  • Sun-Dried Tomato and Cashew Romesco
  • Pine Nut Parmesan
  • Macadamia Cheese
  • Fluffy Macadamia Feta
  • Candied Pumpkin Seeds (yum, added some cayenne, a bit of extra ginger, and a dash of powdered stevia)
  • Spicy Chili Lime Almonds
  • Spiced Brazil Nuts
  • Maple-Sugared Slivered Almonds
  • Candied Walnuts
  • Walnut Hemp Crackers
  • Sun-Dried Tomato and Herb Crackers
  • Jalapeno Corn Tortilla Chips
  • Spicy Flax and Herb Crackers
  • Mango Chutney
  • Green Olive Tapenade
  • Tart Sour Gream

Ok I am going to skip the drinks, mayhaps if I make one and it is an absolute must-try, I will push it here, but till then... I need to find a way to get a thai coconut tree growing outside my yard, as that is one of the bigger limitations on trying all these recipes.
