Book Description

March 15 2012

Creative raw cuisine recipes for delicious nutrient-rich dishes.

Raw food diets (where food is eaten raw and if heated, the temperature can't exceed 118 degrees Fahrenheit) are becoming increasingly popular today for a variety of reasons: a quest for weight loss and increased energy, reduced risk of diseases, an aversion to animal based foods or simply a desire to consume more whole, nutrient-rich ingredients. Whatever each person's reason, raw food diets and/or lifestyles are certainly becoming more mainstream.

This wonderful collection of recipes will appeal to both novices and veterans of the raw food lifestyle -- they are imaginative, feature easy-to-follow instructions and are incredibly delicious. From hearty breakfasts that get your day off to an energized start, to satisfying soups and sumptuous main courses, to lush decadent desserts that will satisfy the most discriminating sweet tooth, these recipes reflect Doug's talent and commitment to the lifestyle.

Eat Raw, Eat Well includes dishes such as:

  • Pear and Walnut Pancakes, Banana Cream Pie Smoothie
  • Jicima, Corn, Quinoa and Lime Hot Pot, Perfect Guacamole
  • Cauliflower Risotto, Spicy Kimchi, Black Lentil Sloppy Joes
  • Quinoa Pilaf, Sweet Potato and Squash Mac 'n' Cheese
  • Walnut Portobello Burgers, Moussaka
  • Caramelized Peach Tart, Pear Crisp
  • Buckwheat Pretzels, Sour Cream and Onion Kale Chips, Pizza Bites

In addition there's a wealth of information on how to properly prepare the ingredients in advance of meal preparation to enhance their nutritional value as well as comprehensive "raw pantry" information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes eating raw easy and tasty Jan. 26 2013
By Heather Pearson TOP 500 REVIEWER
About two years ago, I first heard of 'raw food' and have been curious since then. When I saw Eat Raw, Eat Well by Douglas McNish in the store, I had to bring it home and hopefully satisfy my yearnings. Right off, I have to tell you that I wasn't disappointed and that Chef Doug exceeded my expectations in every area. I found that each dish was a flavour adventure and that there is no reason for eating boring, flavourless foods when there are innovative chefs like Doug who are willing to share their well devised recipes.

A the beginning of the book is an introduction to raw foods including a section about eating raw in frigid weather. (spiciness does help). After a discussion of cooking techniques and kitchen tools, Dough launches in to the recipes.

I will admit, that I had a hard time getting past the breakfast and smoothies sections. The "Sweet Green Drink" with kale, spinach and romaine could be part of my lunch every day and I'd never get tired of it.

As with all the recipes, there are substitutions suggested where appropriate. This worked well with the smoothies as it made it easy to add in a fruit or vegetable that was available for one that was too pricey when I was shopping.

What surprised me, is that most of the smoothies start with a base of a cup of almond milk. Previously I would have used juice, but the almond milk, or other nut/seed milk, makes for a creamier and more whole bodied drink.

The breakfast porridge were a nice change of manufactured cold cereals and a lot more filling. They do take a bit of time to prepare, but not much longer than a pot of steel cut oatmeal.

My family did have a hard time accepting that soup didn't come to the table steaming hot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple & Delicious Jan. 8 2013
By Amelie
After buying dozens of vegetarian/vegan/raw/gluten-free cookbooks, this is by far the best. I love it!

I have been trying to incorporate more raw foods & good fats into my diet but for quite a while but when searching for cookbooks I have been overwhelmed with all the hard to find ingredients and dehydrator recipes...until now! I do love salads & vegetables, but I find that I buy groceries and then always get sick of the same old salad...in the end too much food just goes to waste. My favourite part of this book is that it presents a long list of easy dips, dressings & salads so that I can finally buy easy to find, simple ingredients and add some variety, deliciousness to my nutritious diet!

What makes this book fantastic:
- This book helps me feel great, love my food and lose weight!
- Easy to make recipes
- Easy to find ingredients
- Helpful tips including substitutions and complimentary foods/recipes, how to soak etc.
- Huge section on simple salads & dressing...perfect to change up the same old lunch salad
- Although there are so many dehydrator recipes that sound delicious, I have not yet tried them and would recommend this book even to people who are not interested in these recipes
- Delicious smoothie & juice recipes
- Every recipe I have tried so far has turned out to be extremely flavourful and delicious

Quote from my co-worker who just had a taste of the cashew spinach dip I made last night: "Oh my gosh...I will never buy a store-bought dip again, this is so flavourful!"

Thank you Doug.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lots of time is needed for these recipes! May 5 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has a ton of recipes, but I cannot say it was a success in our family. We tried a lot of them, but I only get into this book if I have lots of time. The tools required for many of the recipes are specific too: blender and processor will get you through many, but a dehydrator will get you further.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent introduction to raw foods Oct. 25 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was always interested in this topic - heating foods can only destroy nutrients, surely? - and I have been delighted with every recipe I made. Buy one of those hand-cranked veggie shredders to get full benefit from the recipes - Amazon has them at a great price!

2.0 out of 5 stars Need Special Equipment
Too bad, this recipe book requires a lot of extra equipment ie food dehydrator. Recipes sound good but should be a food dehydrator cookbook

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing Book
Was NOT at all impressed with this book. It had one page only referencing for the spiral machine.
I'd like to send it back, it was a waste of money.
