Raw Beet Balls and Zucchini Noodles, Stuffed Peppers With Leftovers, and Raw Popcorn


February 8, 2012 by Living Girl Living Foods

So the Beet Balls were not exactly how I imagined them. I did change the recipe a bit, my stomach has not been able to handle nuts lately, I substituted with 1/4 cup carrot pulp (from juicing) and two 1/4 cups of ground up hemp from making hemp milk. I think I also did not add enough water 😦 They are very filling, I ate three beet balls and one extremely small zucchini for noodles. The texture is similar to bread, and has a slight air-like texture I think this is because of the vegetable pulp and flax. I couldn’t really taste much beet. I love how the hemp seeds I used instead of nuts added to the texture and look.

Raw Beet Balls & Noodles with Marinara :D

I crumbled up a few of the left over beet balls and dehydrated them for two hours. After I added some of my marinara sauce (soaked sun-dried tomatoes, tomato, jalapeno, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, basil, oregano, thyme, garlic, onion, salt & pepper) and put the mix in the dehydrator for another two hours.

I filled a red pepper with crumbled cauliflower covered with chili powder, nutritional yeast, salt, pepper, dulse & olive oil (the same ingredients as my raw popcorn). Here is what I ended up with topped with diced tomato, jalapeno slices, and shredded carrot.

I was surprised at how much I ended up liking this. I’ve never really been much of a stuffed pepper fan.

Raw Popcorn time!

Yummmmmy 😀

I used:

One small head of cauliflower ripped into bite sizes with as little stem as possible

3-4 Tablespoons nutritional yeast

2-4 Tablespoons olive oil

Chili powder, dulse, salt, pepper according to taste

It’s not mandatory in any way, but if you want it to look extra buttery and cheesy put your mix in a dehydrator for 3 hours. That’s what I did in the imagine above. I used half of the nutritional yeast before putting the cauliflower in the dehydrator, then put the other half in the mix after wards.

Voila! Raw Popcorn 😛 Even more finger licking goodness than cooked popcorn.

Cauliflower is high in antioxidants, detoxifying enzymes, & is helpful with anti-inflammatory health problems (Crohn’s, IBS, IBD, obesity). Below is the nutrition facts for RAW cauliflower.
