Raw Food Recipe: Chilli-almond veg with sprouted quinoa

Raw Food Recipe: Chilli-almond veg with sprouted quinoa


6 hours soaking (almonds – if using) ~ 15-20 minutes for chopping veggies & preparing sauce ~ 2 hours in dehydrator, to warm through
Sprouted quinoa takes about 24 hours – or 2 days, if you have time – or you could serve this with cooked quinoa or rice – or a green leaf salad


For 2 people


4 tablespoons (level) almond butter or a handful of almonds – soaked for 6 hours & rinsed well
1/4  inch piece of fresh ginger – peeled and roughly chopped
1 small clove garlic – it’s mighty powerful when it’s raw!
1 tablespoon raw tahini (sesame seed paste)
1/4 – 1/2 small chilli – they’re HOT raw!
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Juice of 1/2 lemon (0ptional)

Vegetables – winter suggestions

Vegetables ready to go - just add the sauce!

1 leek
1 parsnip – scrubbed, cut into chunk
1 -2 carrots
1 very small red onion – they’re strong when raw!
1 tablespoon fresh coriander leaves (optional)
1 cup sprouted quinoa

How To Make It

  1. Put all the sauce ingredients into a high speed blender and blitz until smooth – being careful not to let them get hot. You may need to add a tablespoon or two of water, if the paste gets too thick.
  2. Leek: cut off the tough tops of the leaves (darkest green bits) and the roots. Chop the leek in half lengthways and run it under water, “fanning it”, to make sure all mud and grit is gone. Chop the  into 2 inch long chunks, then shred it lengthways, to make fine “sticks”
  3. Carrots – scrub (peel if not organic or if looking maky). Grate on a normal cheese grater.
  4. Parsnip – this gets “hidden” in with the sauce. I usually scrub the parsnip, chop it into chunks and then blitz it in a food processor, until it looks like rice. Alternatively, if you’re “parsnip proud” and not dealing with fussy eaters, you could just grate it, like the carrot!
  5. Peel the onion. Cut it in half. Slice it very finely and separate out the pieces.
  6. Mix the vegetables in a bowl. Add the sauce. Combine well and top with chopped coriander leaves, if using.
  7. Serve with the sprouted quinoa. Enjoy!
