Contributing Chef: Dimitri Tsatoumas 

Below you will find some free raw food recipes and ideas. The raw food cuisine is truly unique and amazing, I love the flavor, scent and colors found in each creation. Whether preparing a simple salad, or letting the creative juices flow by putting together a magical dish of colorful mixed vegetables, nut pates or dehydrated goodies, it is truly magical. When chopping vegetables, garlic heads, basil, removing rosemary leaves from their branch or putting the finishing touches on a dish; I take in a portion of life, the beautiful live aromas, colors and textures, circle the air, they leave me breathless. Biting into the dish that was made with love gives you a great feeling, the symphony of flavors bursting in your mouth… if you think about it, we really don’t need much to be happy :-).

I hope you enjoy the recipes and be sure to visit often as we will keep updating this page with additional recipes, ideas and passion. 




 

Appetizers


Luscious Kalamata Olive dip

*NOTE* I like to alter the olives sometimes when I make this, so at times I use the dark organic large succulent Kalamata olives and other times I enjoy the large fluorescent organic Italian olives like you see below, which taste fruity. Honestly, they are both very good and they both have their unique taste, so go with what you like. ***IMPORTANT NOTE*** If you use the non-pitted Kalamata olives remove the salt from the recipe as it will be way too salty, where as the fluorescent Italian olives are unsalted and will require the salt, although sometimes the Kalamata dark olives are sold pitted and could also be unsalted (so you’ll need to taste the olives beforehand to see if they contain salt and add or subtract the salt when necessary from the recipe). 

Step 1

  • 2 cups organic Kalamata or large green olives (make sure you pit the olives before putting them in the blender)…and then throw them into a Vita mix or blender and make sure they have been thoroughly pureed (add some olive oil during mixing if required to keep it going – NO WATER!!!)


    STEP2 …once olives have pureed, add the following ingredients…
  • 3 garlic heads
  • 1/4 red onion Cut in small cubes like this… (watch your hands )-:… 

    Step 3 …finish up by adding the following ingredients…
  • 1/2 tomato – chopped small
  • 1/2 cup Olive oil
  • 1/4 cucumber finely chopped
