Raw Garlicky Green Beans

Been day-dreaming of green beans with lots of garlic (welcome to my world) and when I discovered a bag of organic green beans at Safeway, I came home and created this recipe. This serves as a wonderful side dish if you are preparing an Easter meal - Garlicky and Delish!

Raw Garlicky Green Beans

1 pound of organic green beans
1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped and soaked
2 cloves of garlic, pressed or finely chopped
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
pinch of Himalayan salt
  • Soak sun-dried tomatoes for 15 minutes and then drain off the water (you could use the soak water to flavour other recipes)
  • Combine all ingredients in a glass casserole with a flat bottom (8 x 8" works well), mixing all together until well coated
  • Remove bottom 2 trays from your dehydrator
  • Place casserole into bottom of dehydrator and dehydrate at 105 degrees for 5-8 hours
  • Stir mixture every few hours to coat evenly and taste - till done to your satisfaction!

Raw Enchilada Sandwiches

It was so quick and easy to make my delicious lunch today! The trick is to prepare a few raw dishes once or twice a week that can be stored in the fridge. Then when you come home hungry, all you have to do is put the dishes together for a quick nutritious meal. Some of the things taught In my Dehydrator Essentials Class were how to make enchiladas in 4-inch or 6-inch sizes, marinated veggies and raw mayo.

Enchilada shells are so versatile - here is a different way for you to try!
  • #1 - Lay a mini enchilada shell flat
  • Place a couple of spoonfuls of marinated veggies down the centre of each shell
  • Drizzle some raw mayo over the veggies
  • #2 - Top this mixture with some home grown sprouts
  • Fold enchilada shell in half to fit in the palm of your hand
  • #3 - Enjoy this quick and easy meal - taco style!
