aint no trifling matter

My first Christmas as a raw fooder was in 1993. I didn’t do very well, to be honest. I seem to remember going hard on the roast potatoes.

Anyhow, I’ve had lots of opportunities to invent raw Christmas fayre, and in the spirit of the season in 2009, I thought I’d compile a list for you to inspire you for your own raw Christmas menus.

Gravies

Warming your gravy and serving it over your dinner is always a good idea. Warm your plates as well. If you’re using a dehydrator, try and serve as much as possible straight from it. Warm is good.

Tahini & miso gravy (Eat Smart Eat Raw p34)

Greyvy (Raw Magic p99)

Mains

You can also take any of my burger recipes and make them into loaves. My favourite is probably Burger Me (Raw Magic p164).

Nut Loaf (Eat Smart Eat Raw p72)

Chick Pea Loaf (Raw Living p135)

Mashed Parsnips (Raw Living p111)

Christmas Coleslaw (Raw Living p112)

Cranberry & Goji Relish (Raw Magic p101)

Desserts

Raw Christmas desserts are easy because they are all about the dried fruit and the spices. The only thing that’s hard is choosing which one to make first.

Mincemeat Tart (Eat Smart Eat Raw p102)

Christmas Cake (Eat Smart Eat Raw p103)

Christmas Puddings (Eat Smart Eat Raw p105)

Christmas Sweets (Eat Smart Eat Raw p119)

Goji & Macadamia Mincemeat Mess (Raw Living p185)

Trifle (Raw Living p186)

Christmas Iced Bombe (Raw Living p189)

All the photos R of Matrix Tart (Raw Magic p214). Matrix Tart is the deviant mincemeat tart full of goji goodness resting in a cacao crust.
