Here is the recipes:
Raspberry Cheesecake by Veronica Clay
2 cups almonds
8 T dates
3 cups cashews
1 ½ cups almond milk
1 cup lemon juice
¾ cup agave
¾ cup coconut butter
On the pictures I have a chocolate crust. All I did was pulse chop the almonds little bit and added about 3-4 dates and some raw cocoa powder and pulsed more to get crumbles. I poured them out on the cake bottom and poured the filling on the top. When it was frozen enough I flipped the cheesecake upside down.
Fried onion rings
"Fried" Onion Rings
1 large sweet or Spanish onion cut into rings
4 tbs. olive oil
2 tbs. water
Sea salt to taste
1 cup ground golden flax seeds
1/2 cup ground unsoaked almonds
1-2 tsp. paprika
Sea salt and pepper to season
How to: Take each onion ring, dip it into the 2nd coating, then into the 1st coating and then back into the 2nd coating. Your goal is to get as much of the 2nd coating as possible. Once you have achieved that, gently take the coated onion rings and put them on dehydrator trays (without teflex sheets) and dehydrate the rings for about 10-14 hrs at 105 degrees F. or until crispy. Serve them with a tangy dipping sauce.
I used this recipe to make the Golden Onion Ring Bread. Only thing that I did different is added some turmeric and curry powder. Mixed the first and the second coating together along with the onion rings and spread it on the teflex sheet. I dehydrated it for 1 hr at 145 F and then flipped it on the other side and turned it down to 115 F until it was crispy. Next time I want to omit the onion rings and just do it plain to see if it will taste good without the onions.
Tangy Dipping Sauce
1 cup macadamia nuts (soaked for 2-4 hrs)
1/2 cup pine nuts
1-2 tbs. lemon juice
2 tbs. soaked sun dried tomatoes
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
Sea salt to taste
Add everything in heavy duty food processor or a high speed blender and process or blend till smooth and creamy. Add a little water if needed. Scoop out the mixture into a bowl and garnish it with chopped cilantro and diced red bell pepper. Serve aside warm onion rings.
