Juliano's RAW: best recipes?

I’ve just received Juliano’s book RAW as a gift. It looks great, but many of the recipes have a lot of ingredients and/or look time intensive. Has anybody tried any of these? Are there recipes you’d recommend that I try? Thanks.

  • Try the “real toast” recipe; it’s the best raw bread you’ll ever have. In fact, it’s one of the only dehydrator recipes I make.

  • His book is very overwhelming. I bought it years ago, before I had ever started eating raw. I really just enjoyed looking at the beautiful photography back then. Now that I have experimented more with raw cuisine, I’ve actually started using it more like a “cookbook.”

    I’d advise trying the recipes that interest you, and simplify them to suit your tastes. Just because you don’t have every ingredient doesn’t mean you can’t make a spectacular dish.

    Also, the soups are quite tasty and are easy to prepare, as well as the salads. I personally like the desserts. The Strawberry Romanoff was the first one I ever made. It is simple and yummy.

  • Thanks for the advice…I’ll put the real toast and strawberry romanoff on my list of recipes to try out!

  • This was my first raw book, and I love it dearly for that. I have made many of the recipes, and the ones I make most often are the Fiery Lava Soup, Cashew Flower Cinnamon Yogurt, and the “Peanut” sauce. They are all amazing. I’ve also made the Buckwheat Pizza Crusts a few times, and they are a great base for any sort of pizza you’d like. You can also make several of them at once, as they seem to keep for over a month. I just cut one up last night and used it as chips for salsa. Two things I didn’t have good luck with were the Extra Avo Soup – it had way too much lemon juice in it and I couldn’t tone it down even after adding a few extra avocados – and the Essene bread batter was too thin to form a decent loaf. Hope that helps!

  • I just got this book, and my new dehydrator today. I cant wait to try some recipes out.

  • You know I have that book and I really liked the soups my favorite was butternut squash with orange and curry super good.. can’t remember the name
