Food & Recipes
Big thanks as always to Abby Cahn Anton of Super Simple Foods for sharing her knowledge and recipes with us. The first class of our Preparing Healthier Versions of your Favorite Holiday Foods series was in Ocean, where we prepared a raw sweet potato pie. This pie was absolutely DELISH! You'd never know this pie wasn't cooked. Serve this at your next holiday party--your guests will not be disappointed!   Weren't able to attend? You're in luck! We have the recipes for you right here: The Crust:  INGREDIENTS
  • 2 cups raw almonds (ideally soaked and then dehydrated, but plain are okay)
  • 1 cup raw walnuts (again, ideally soaked and then dehydrated, but plain are okay)
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • 2 medjool or other soft dates (pitted)
  • ¼ tsp. Sunfire Salt
  • 1 tbs. coconut oil
  • ¼ cup coconut flour (optional)
  1. In a food processor with "S" blade: finely chop the almonds. Add raisins, dates, salt and coconut flour, and pulse until finely chopped and distributed.
  2. Add walnuts and coconut oil and pulse again, making sure not to over-process – it should be grainy and slightly sticky.
  3. Empty into 9” pie dish and press into dish, bringing up the sides.
