As a first, I tried out raw food for this year´s Christmas. In the last few weeks up to Christmas, I´ve been looking around a bit for raw holiday recipes that wouldn´t leave me to feel that my food was any less christmas-y than my family´s Christmas dinner.
I landed on Ida Kirk Foged & Ida Hjorth Sørensen´s “Ida & Ida´s Raw Jule E-bog”, a pamphlet containing 53 recipes, ranging from starters, beverages, mains, desserts, cakes and snacks. I found it really hard to decide on what to make, as choices were plenty, but ended up on making a Pumpkin-Hazel-Cranberry salad, and Nut-paté with Portobello´s, nuts, nutmeg and fresh spices, Cashew-Creme, and a raw adaptation of the (very!) Scandinavian Christmas dessert; riskrem or Ris al Amánde. The result came out like this:
And it tasted really good:)
