1 red onion
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
¼ cup agave
½ cup cherry tomatoes
½ cup sun-dried tomatoes (soaked, reserve soaking water)
1 teaspoon paprika
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon pepper (ground)
1 pint cherry tomatoes (halved)
8 ounces baby portabello mushrooms (sliced)
1 bell pepper (sliced)
½ pineapple (peeled, cored (save core), cut)
1½ cups quinoa (sprouted)
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons orange juice
½ cup coconut (shredded)
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Take half of the red onion and slice it very thinly (save the other half for later). Place the sliced red onion on a dehydrator screen and dehydrate at 95 Fahrenheit for about 5 hours, until dry to the touch.
2. In a blender, combine the dried onion, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, agave, 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, soaked sun-dried tomatoes, 2 tablespoons of the soaking water, spices, salt, and pepper. Blend until smooth to make your B.B.Q. sauce.
3. Cut the remaining red onion half into bite-sized pieces.
4. Skewer the cherry tomato halves, mushrooms, onion, pepper, and pineapple pieces onto wooden skewers to make your kebabs. Using your hands, generously coat each kebab with B.B.Q. sauce (reserve about 2 tablespoons B.B.Q. sauce for the quinoa).
5. Place kebabs on Teflex or parchment paper-lined dehydrator trays and dehydrate at 145 Fahrenheit for 1 hour (or a lower temperature for longer).
6 While kebabs are in the dehydrator, blend together the pineapple core, olive oil, orange juice, and the 2 tablespoons reserved B.B.Q. sauce.
7. Stir in the shredded coconut, then combine with the sprouted quinoa. Season coconut quinoa with salt and pepper to taste.
8. Serve B.B.Q. kebabs warm with a side of coconut quinoa.
A few months back, I saw Emeril Lagasse on TV making barbecue sauce.
I thought “I could totally make that raw.”
With Emeril’s inspiration and a little Hawaiian flair, this is what I dreamed up. Enjoy!
For even more fun, complete your Hawaiian Luau with lais and coconut drinks with umbrella straws!
