POST #761

Here’s what we did for July 4th – kind of simple, but still yummy.

RAW VEGAN HOT DOGS yummies.html
Raw whole food hot dogs
Makes 6-8
We put mustard and fresh-made sauerkraut on some of them, and mustard and cole slaw on the others. Both ways, YUMM!

1-1/2 c walnuts
¼ onion
¼ beet
½ carrot
2 clove garlic
2 T agave (to taste)
2 T soy sauce/tamari
2 t hickory smoke flavor*
1 t marjoram
½ t celery seed
½ t salt
½ t smoked paprika
sprinkle cayenne pepper

Blend till smooth in food processor.
Form dough into hot dog shapes on teflex (6-8).
Dehydrate 105 about 4 hrs.
Flip onto grid dehydrate to the texture you like. (Another hr or so.) Roll lightly into shape.
Serve warm.

*Carmella’s Notes:
~ Hickory/ liquid smoke can be found in health food store, usually alongside other savory sauces.
~ This is pretty intense stuff so I would recommend starting with less than what’s called for.


  • 3/4 1-lb cabbage
  • 2 T mayonnaise (more or less, depending on how soupy you like it. I don’t like soupy)
  • 1/4 C finely chopped onions
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • cayenne paper (to taste, if you choose)


( I also sometimes make my cole slaw with just extra virgin olive oil, instead of mayonnaise)

We also had sauerkraut (I served it as a side, but we put it on some of the hot dogs)
This was a 3-day sauerkraut, and it came out PERFECT!


10/28/10 CSA SHARE: What they say we will get and what I think I will make

Here’s what they say we will get:

Arugula…1/4 lb.
Golden Beets…..1 bun.
Daikon Radish….2 pcs
Sweet Potatoes….3.5 – 4 lbs
Green Cabbage…1 hd
Toscano Kale…..1 bun.
Guy Lon (Chinese Broccoli)… 1 bun.
Leeks….2 – 3 pcs
Mixed Red and Golden Delicious Apples

I love golden beets – mainly because they don’t stain your hands.  One of my students has reported that she added lemon juice and ginger to her grated beets – that sounds like a good thing to try out.

Toscano kale is also called lacinato kale and dinosaur kale.  I wonder why it has that many names.  I find it funny.  Regardless, I think I will make some more kale chips .  The chili/cheddar-cheezy ones I made a few weeks ago were really yummy, and the “smoked jalapeno” cheezy ones I made were very nice and spicy.

It’s time to make Amazing Sweet Potatoes again.  Yumm!

I’ll be making sauerkraut this week, of course.  What else to do with cabbage?  Perhaps I’ll make a little coleslaw, as well. We’ll see.

Daikon Cheeze Bites!  I’ll use my usual cheddar cheeze instead of the fancy one I originally posted – the usual one has fewer ingredients, so is cheaper and easier, and I like it better.


I have just realized that I have never posted my traditional cole slaw recipe, so here it is, together with a nice, traditional mayonnaise recipe.

1 hd cabbage
1/4 – 1/2 onion, finely chopped
black pepper to taste
cashew mayonnaise,  as needed (recipe below)

  • Finely slice cabbage or grate in a food processor (my choice).
  • Add black pepper to taste
  • Mix in mayonnaise until mix is just moist (or to taste)
  • Eat immediately, or refrigerate for up to 24 hrs.

1 C cashews, soaked 1-2 hrs., drained
1/2 t paprika (optional)
2 cloves garlic
1 t onion powder
1 – 3 T lemon juice (to taste)
1/4 C extra virgin olive oil
2 T parsley, chopped (optional)
1 – 2 T water, as needed
Seas salt, to taste

  • Combine all ingredients, save parsley (if used),  in a blender or food processor.
  • Process to a creamy consistency, adding water as necessary
  • Taste and adjust salt and lemon juice, if necessary..

Refrigerate for up to 4 – 7 days
