Food Show and More

Rawk Starz had a food show in Vermont this past weekend and we rocked the house. It was amazing and ridiculously delicious.


Our rawkin' "tour bus" experienced a little bit of roadside trouble. We kept smiling.

This little girl was so quiet during our show...until we brought out dessert. I suggested she choose the first piece and this was her reaction.
And a lot of other fun experimenting has been happening during the week.

Raw Stuffed Apples with Salted Caramel Sauce

Mint-Watermelon Lemonade

Spinach Salad with Raw Avocado Fries and Raw Ketchup. Also Endive Leaves Stuffed with Curried Cashew Kream.

BBQ Kale Chips

Bunch of fresh, young kale

Raw BBQ Sauce:
2 whole fresh tomatoes
1 cup organic sun-dried tomatoes, soaked 1-2 hours
1/8 cup lemon juice
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp pink salt
1 large clove organic garlic
2 Tbsp organic white onion, chopped
1 Tbsp Nama Shoyu or liquid aminos
2 Tbsp fresh, organic lemon juice
1/4 cup raw agave or maple syrup
Pinch cayenne pepper
2 Tbsp olive oil
Vitamix all ingredients. Coat sauce on kale and dehydrate for 24 hours, or until crispy.

My kids loved these!! I hope your family does to!

As an interesting piece of advice, I have learned that it takes MUCH longer to dehydrate food when it is hot and humid out! I learned as I was preparing for a Rawk Starz food show, that I needed to dehydrate food twice as long as the recipe called for during a heat wave where it was in the 90's and very humid. It took 3 days to fully dehydrate corn chips!

I hope your week Rawked! Thanks for stopping by!
