Raw Stuffed Mushroom with Cashew Creamy Garlic Sauce

The raw vegan recipe was born for all our clients who ask “how did you make that” when they get their raw food meal deliveries. Here is one for you all to try and trust us it tastes amazing. Give it a try and let us know. Hard to resist a raw Mushroom stuffed with a flavourful, healthy filling made with tomatoes, onions, olives , spinach and pine nuts , topped with a creamy Cashew raw vegan sauce.

I put a little extra step in this recipe that isn’t necessary, but I would suggest you take the time to do it. It contributes to what is called “flavor layering” and it has a big impact on the taste of the final dish. Flavor layering builds, expands and deepens the flavors that are already in your dish. In this recipe, I have taken part of the tomatoes and onions, marinated them, and dehydrated them for a bit. When mixed with the raw tomatoes and onions, the effect deepens and expands the flavor. You can use a low heat oven (not raw) to get the same effect. Just don’t leave them in too long.
