Gado-Gado is a highly flavorful sauce that tastes wonderful slightly
warmed (use the warm to your finger test- if you cant leave your finger in there
indefinitely, its too hot and you are losing enzymes) and drizzled over almost any
vegetable that you can think of. Try placing some of the following on a bed of sunflower
and buckwheat sprouts and pour some Gado-Gado over: shredded cabbage, sliced carrots,
celery, broccoli, asparagus, spinach, grated beets, cauliflower florets, mushrooms, any
kind of squash, greens, grated sweet potato, etc.
1 Cup almond butter
2 - 4 Tablespoons chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1 Tablespoon honey Juice from
1 Tablespoon grated ginger root
1 Tablespoon Tamari
1 Tablespoon Sesame oil
1/2-1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 Cup water
Place all ingredients in blender, add enough water to allow blender
to run. Blend until thoroughly pureed. It should the consistency of a smooth, thick soup.
Taste and adjust seasonings. Yields 2 1/2 cups.
The above recipe is based on an Indonesian dish traditionally made with peanuts. We are
using almonds here. Peanuts are not recommended. A fungus called aflatoxin naturally
occurs in the peanut crop. Although the crops are inspected for it, a certain percentage
is allowed and since it is a proven carcinogen, peanuts are best left alone.
Another reason peanut butter isnt recommended is that it is not possible to make a
butter out of raw peanuts. Peanut butter is produced from roasted peanuts.
Your first taste of raw almond butter may seem a bit
disappointing - its flavor is more subtle than peanut butter. However, you will find that
your palate quickly gets used to it
