First I had to prepare “I Am Bueno” Spinach Tortillas
8 ounces fresh spinach, washed and dried
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon flax meal
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Puree all of these ingredients in a food processor. When a smooth paste has formed, get out your teflex sheets for the dehydrator and smooth a thin, square layer over most of the sheet.
Next I put the sheet into the dehydrator at 145 degrees for about 45 minutes, then I reduced the heat to 115 for another few hours. I may have added too much lemon juice to my mixture since spreading was particularly difficult and they were still quite wet when I first checked on them. Once they were close and I could flip them onto the grid and get the other side, I knew they were going to turn out okay. The final consistency reminded me a lot of sheets of Nori seaweed.
1 cup soaked pumpkin seeds
8 sundried tomato halves
1/2 teaspoon chopped garlic
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon Nama Shoyu
1 large chopped date
1/2 jalapeno pepper, chopped
2 scallions (bias cut)
Again, puree everything in the Cuisinart except the scallions. Once the pâté-like texture was achieved I moved it to another bowl, folded in the scallions and refrigerated everything until it was ready to go.
I had already made a simple avocado tomato salsa (1 avo, 1 tomato, 1/4 cup chopped onion, little bit of jalapeno, lime juice) and I had made an avocado puree yesterday consisting of avocado, fresh mint, fresh cilantro, lime juice, dash of salt).
For the final additional sauce, I prepared I Am Ravishing Cashew Sour Cream:
Added to my blender:
1 1/2 cups soaked cashews
1/2 teaspoon Himilayan salt
2 tablespoons lemon juice
between 1/2-3/4 cup filtered water (start blending with about 1/3 cup and work up from there until you get a nice smooth consistency).
I blended everything and it came out nice and creamy and white just like sour cream looks. I added it to a squeezy bottle that I bought at Sur la Table.
I used squeezy bottles for the avocado puree and the I Am Ravishing Cashew Sour Cream to “finish” off the look of the meal and garnished with fresh shredded carrot.
Overall taste was quite pleasing and very satisfying.
