For years, I’ve been grumbling and saying that I should write a book with recipes which require no fancier equipment than a food processor, and, maybe a blender. I had collected numbers of raw vegan books, and annotated them as to what equipment was required, so that I could avoid the things that I believe can be done without. (Don’t get me wrong: in the past I have had all of the exciting stuff: I scrimped and saved to get the $450 for a Vitamix which came with a 7-year warranty, and gave up the ghost about 3 weeks after the warranty was up. I also had a dehydrator, however, in my situation, it is not convenient to use it, so it is peacefully resting in storage.) That leaves me with a low-end food processor, and a Nutri-Bullet that my mother gave me,
I became a raw vegan when I was in college (like, maybe, 47 years ago). Back then, things were all simple: slice this up, chop this up: have food.
So, what am I talking about? I recently found this book Raw & Simple by Judita Wignall, and I am mad as a hornet that I did not put my book out when I first thought about it. This is a very nice book, and I am as pleased as can be that someone has done what I have failed to get around to doing,
This book has lots of interesting and tasty recipes, and none of them require anything more complicated than a food processor.
So, if you want “kind of” fancy, but you don’t have a lot of equipment, this is definitely for you. (If you already have all the fancy equipment anyone could dream of, this will still be a welcome addition to your recipe-book library.
