Pesto Stuffed Mushrooms

This delicious little number is from Living on Live Food by Alissa Cohen. If you want to go raw and need a good “starting out” cookbook, I love this one. Get the DVD too and you’re all set! This was my first raw cookbook and it’s super inspirational. This recipe is great as an appetizer or an entree.

Raw Pesto Stuffed Mushrooms
18-22 button mushrooms, washed and stemmed

Stuffed with:
1 cup walnuts
½ cup pine nuts
2 cups basil
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
3 cloves garlic
½ t sea salt

Place mushroom caps top side down on dehydrator tray. Blend the stuffing in the food processor and scoop a small amount into each mushroom.

Dehydrate at 105 degrees for 5-6 hours until soft. Serve with a large green salad and enjoy!

    This is my favorite recipe book too!
    Even after buying many more, I always return to Alissa’s. The mushrooms look yummy!

    Thanks for all the raw food inspiration. I have a quick question for the next time you do a Q&A Session. I would love to hear your opinion on Yoga and the Raw Food diet. I know most Raw Foodies feel like yoga is the best workout. I am new to Yoga and loving it! However, many people are giving me a hard time about the New Age aspect of it.

    is there a way to make this recipe if you don’t have a dehydrator?

  • 6. livelightly  |  October 9, 2009 at 1:19 pm

    Whitney…yes, as with any dehydrator recipe, you can put your oven on the lowest temp with the door cracked until they are done. You could also just bake these for a non-raw version.

    I am curious to find out what blog system you happen to be utilizing?
    I’m experiencing some small security issues with my latest blog and I would like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any solutions?

    Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no data backup.
    Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?

    Can you use a smoker for this recipe?

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
