Episode Summary

We're back in the kitchen again, turning up the heat on raw foods with South of the Border Tomatillo Rawvioli! I wanted to do a dish that showcased the delightful flavor of tomatillos, the husky green cousin of the tomato. The resulting creation is a lively celebration of Mexican-inspired flavor, beauty and nutrition that's the perfect antidote to the summertime dinner blahs! Why sift through yet another boring pile of the same old greens, or clog your arteries with yet another helping of mayo-drenched macaroni salad, when you could be enjoying a satisfying plate of fresh tomatillo sauce with light cucumber rawvioli filled with rich, spicy cashew filling?This is a rhetorical question.The zappy flavor of the tomatillo is happily married to the smooth creamy richness of avocado, and the whole affair is well-grounded with the earthy taste of cumin. I love this stuff; it tastes so great I can barely remember that it's healthy, raw and vegan! It tastes so great, I can barely remember what I'm doing….Tomatillo Rawvioli:Makes 3 large, or four small servingsZesty Tomatillo Sauce:1 1/2 C tomatillos, chopped1/2 a large avocado1/4C sweet white onion, chopped1/4C cilantro leaves1 clove garlic1/2 a large jalapeno1t cumin1t agave syrup1t stoneground mustardSea salt to tasteOptional 1T olive oil or water to thinKickin' Cashew Ricotta:1C raw cashews, soaked 1hr. and drained1 clove garlicJuice of 1 lemon1T nutritional yeast2t cumin1t chili powderSea salt and fresh black pepper to taste1 medium English cucumber for the wrappersBlend all the tomatillo sauce ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth, adding additional water or olive oil if necessary.
