RawVee's Thoughts

By RawVee

This is a quick easy dish to make for lunches or dinner.

I put this on a bed of arugula with chopped tomato, avocado, and a dressing made of extra virgin olive oil, lime, and cilantro.

You can also roll it in lettuce leaves and add homemade sour cream if you wanna get fancy. :)

That looks delicious - I almost want to get up and make one right now, even though it's late. I will wait 'til tomorrow though. *lol*

This is my seven-year old daughter's favorite salad. She's had it for lunch every day this week with romaine, tomatoes, avocado and cilantro. I made a big batch of the walnut mix. She jumps up and down and cheers for it, so thank you!

I just made this salad it rocked! It was my first adventure into raw world other than smoothies. My open minded non-veg husband said he would rather eat it than a meat taco salad and added "it's freakin delicious". Thanks!!

This was really extra yummy. I work late so I sometimes don't have time to soak the walnuts in other "meat" recipes. Yesterday I took the meat and mixed it with a spicy tomato sauce to make chilli. Thanks!

This has been one of my favorite recipes so far and I've eaten the salad tons of times until I almost got sick of it so tonight I wrapped the "meat" in cabbage leaves with avocado and raw salsa....now this is my new favorite thing to eat. YUM!

I've been trying to use less nuts in general, so I made this recipe w/ 1/2 cup walnuts, 1/2 cup sprouted mung beans and 1/2 cup sprouted brown rice and it was delicious! Just a variation for anyone who might not be able to eat so many nuts. Thanks for a great recipe!

Hmm, 1/2 probably would have been better! Oh well, you live and learn. It was good enough to try to save, which I did, and ate for lunch today. But still, it probably wasn't as good as if I just made it right in the first place! Thanks for the 1/2 tip--that would have been my second mistake with this recipe!!! ;)

Aww, rawkin. Definitely leafy cilantro. If you use the ground, just 1/2 it. :)

Oh man, I screwed up my first raw meal! I didn't see the comment until now about using leafy coriander (cilantro, right?) and used ground instead--I don't suggest that! It wasn't BAD, but it was VERY seasoned and VERY salty (I thought maybe I used too much shoyu!). What was impressive nonetheless was the color and consistency, which fooled my hungry belly into thinking I was eating ground beef! Can't wait to try this again with the proper ingredients! Thank you!

I did soak the walnuts for about an hour and it turned out great. My cilantro, olive oil and lime dressing seemed bitter and I used a high quality fresh oil oil so I added some raw honey that I had...it really made the dressing come to life.

I made this last night and it was quite good. My husband and I both enjoyed it! I wrapped the 'meat' up in collard green leaves with the EVOO & lime juice, avocado and sliced cherry tomatoes. I also tood the left overs amd made us both salads for lunch today. Great recipe! Thanks!

the EVOO thing is so funny because wasn't it coined by rachel ray? =) she is DEFINITELY not my role model when it comes to food. funny how words from certain situations get used in totally contradictory ones.

Looks awesome! Do you soak the walnuts first? If so, for how long?

I'm new to raw food. But I believe that "EVOO" stands for Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

Nama Shoyu is unpasteurized soy sauce. You can find it in most health food stores or online. Naturalzing.com carries it. :)

You guys are so right this is one of the BEST raw recipes I have made even my son and husband said it tasted like real meat. The smell, taste and look just like the real thing. I made some tonight for the first time. I made and ate two in romaine lettuce

The leafy stuff. But either would work!

By corriander, do you mean the leafy stuff or the ground seed?
