Food for My Man

Often I like to make TH raw versions of his former favorite foods.  He loves raw pizza just as much as I do, and rarely eats cooked desserts, preferring raw whole food delectables instead.

He was feeling like a burger this evening, so I followed Kelli's lead with the onion bread (by Lisa) hemp burger (Delightfully Raw) combo.

I made a raw barbeque sauce that I think turned out tangy and tasty.  I actually copied the ingredients on a bottle of Annie's BBQ and threw in a few additional ingredients.  This made a lot of sauce, so it should probably be halved.  I used most of this batch in a crockpot moose roast for TH, which he said was awesome. 

Tangy Raw BBQ Sauce
Blend the following ingredients in a high speed blender. 

7 mediumish tomatoes
3.5 oz soaked sundried tomatoes
1/4 cup ACV
2 dates
2 tbsp EVOO
2 tbsp mustard
2 tbsp nama shoyu (or Bragg's liquid amino)
1 clove garlic
1/4 tsp celery salt
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/8 tsp chipolte
1/8 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp liquid smoke (not really raw)
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp irish moss gel (probably optional...?)

Question:  Do you and your significant other eat the same types of things? 


  1. What is that beautiful-looking ?dessert in the second pic?

    The barbecue sauce sounds just right.

    Gosh, Phil and I eat _totally_ different things. Nowadays he eats much more salad than ever before, though...

  2. @Ela

    Ela- the dessert is mango sorbet (mangoes, banana, and a little sweetener, blended and then processed in the ice cream machine).

    TH and I used to eat drastically different things as well, but he has been eating way more veggies and less meat and dairy lately. He's pretty receptive towards the raw foods I make.

  3. Everything looks so good. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
    We eat the same, in the sense that he'll eat all of my raw dishes but he eats a ton of stuff I will not in addition.

  4. @Elizabeth

    Yep, Elizabeth, that's pretty much the way we eat too.
