WOW...I guess you guys *love* Ani Phyo as much as we do :) Last month's RawReform giveaway contest to win a copy of Ani's latest book had the biggest response we've EVER seen for a contest ;) Love it...
We asked you to send in your A to the following Q to be in with a chance of winning: "What is *your* 'essential' raw food recipe that you love to make?" and you responded by the 100s to let us in on your raw kitchen tips and favourites...
I am delighted to say that the winner of the book, chosen at random, is Kyoko, who sent in the following recipe
"My name is Kyoko, and I have been on a 100% raw food diet since January, 2009, and I've learned a lot about preparing simple, tasty, wonderful raw food meals for myself and for my house mates.
My essential raw food recipe is the 'Buckwheat Crispy' treats I eat as snacks and on my travels. I'm sure a lot of raw food eaters are familiar with this type of simple recipe.
All the ingredients are organic.
2 cups Hulled Buckwheat
1/2 C. pumpkin seeds
1/2 C. sunflower seeds
1/2 C. each of Golden raisins, Goji berries, and Inca berries
optional: seasonal fruits of your choice
Soak buckwheat and seeds in a bowl over night. Rinse it and drain the water. Let them sprout for a day or two as you rinse a few more times in between.
Soak the raisins and berries in a glass jar.
Put the sprouted mixture in the dehydrator for 5 - 8 hours depending on how dry you'd like. They will come out very crispy and crunchy. Offer a small portion to God (I call him, 'Baba'), and put it back in the big batch. Store the mixture in a glass jar.
For enjoying as a morning cereal or afternoon snack, I add the soaked raisins and berries on top, some protein powder, Chlorella, cinnamon powder (about a teaspoon!), some Himalayan salt, a banana or a ripe avocado (both if I am really in the mood) and some chunks of coconut butter. If I wanted to take more liquid in a day, I put warm water and let everything soak for half an hour or more. I mix everything and it looks like a big green goo which tastes more like an ice cream treat!
This has been my staple for a quick meal, in between snack or at the airport. I have shared this recipe with non-raw food eaters, and everyone loves it! It's easy to make and very enjoyable.
Thank you for all you do, Angela!
Kyoko from San Francisco"
