DINNER TONIGHT – A LEFTOVER MASTERPIECE!
On Saturday, I made the “Caulifest” recipe I found on PURE JEEVAN and liked it very much. I had a lot left over, so I put it in the refrigerator.
Today, two days later, it was my turn to prepare dinner, so I went to the leftovers. I mixed the leftover “Caulifest”, I had about half of it left over (recipe below), in a bowl together with 2 T of ground flax seed and a teaspoon of my new lucumi powder, and set it aside while I prepared other things. After about 10 minutes, I made patties by squeezing the mix together, and then forming the patties on a teflex sheet covered dehydrator tray. I dehydrated the patties at 125 degrees for 1/2 hour, then flipped the patties and dehydrated some more on the other side.
I soaked some wakame/kanten/mystery seaweed mix( a gift from my Japanese room-mate) for 15 minutes, and then mixed in about 5 T of the leftover massaged marinated kale from Saturday. I added a little sesame oil and some hot pepper apple cider vinegar. I chopped some tomatoes to place on top.
To serve, I put a cauliflower pattie on the plate with a 1/4 in. slice of tomato on top and put about1 teaspoon of my cashew cheez on top of it all as a sauce. I added some of the kale to the plate and placed the seaweed/kale salad on the plate with the chopped tomatoes on top.
I passed the test!!! My non-raw room-mate liked it!!!!!! All of it! Best of all, I liked it, too!
