Raw Pies and Pizza

Thursday 14 th May 2015

In order to make the crust for pies I’ve used nuts as basic ingredient, simply by grinding them until get a batter like a marzipan. With this paste, you can make different shapes, like a pizza, a pie or small pies. 
These pies are not crunchy, because the paste is soft if it’s not baked, but it’s better to avoid baking if you want to stay in a raw food diet. But it tastes great. And then, children will enjoy making their own recipes adding the ingredients they prefer as toppings and fillings.

Sweet pies


Ingredients (for 1small pie)

50 gr raw cachew nuts
whole fruits or fruit purée: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, apricot, apple, etc.
carob or chocolate sauce: 5 gr. cocoa or carob powder (it’s not allowed in GAPS diet), 15 gr. coconut butter, optionally honey.
spices: vanilla, cinnamon, ginger (optional)


Instructions

Grind cashew nut together with desired spices to get a paste like marzipan. With this paste you can make the shape you want.
Cashew paste is a little bit more “sables” than almond paste, but it’s sweeter.
Knead with a rolling pin and put in a mold for pie. 
Add fruit you want, whole or puréed, or the carob or chocolate sauce.
n order to unmold, you can use some forks, or you can put a bakery paper or plastic film underneath the pie crust.

Example: 50 gr. cashews, strawberries, blueberries, carob sauce. Made by Núria Duran, 12 years old.

Comment: if you are on a GAPS diet you need to prepare the nuts before.
 

Salted pies


Ingredients

150 gr almonds
tomato sauce
pinch of salt
optional: dried tomato, olives, almond flour, onion, eggplant, pepper, pineapple, etc.
herbs and spices: turmeric, origan, persil, basil, etc.


Instructions

Grind almonds together with desired spices to get a paste like marzipan. With this paste you can make the shape you want.
Knead with a rolling pin and put in a mold for pizza.
Add the ingredients you want: tomato sauce (better homemade), olives, etc. Instead of cheese, we use almond flour.
To make homemade tomato sauce it’s better to peel them. To do it, you can soak them in boiling water for some minutes, until the skin get wrinkle. Then, pour cold water and peel them. It’s better if you take the seeds and the juice out. Then, blend the tomato flesh with a pinch of salt.
