From the Inside Flap
IF YOU LOVE the philosophy behind and benefits of eating raw, but need something great to eat in a hurry, the answer is here. Everyday Raw Express gives great, simple, tasty, healthful recipes--fast! In 30 minutes or less. While raw food has captured our imaginations with its growing presence in upscale restaurants and through its beautiful, colorful imagery in cookbooks, many recipes by raw food chefs are admittedly complicated or time-consuming to make. Even many of the simpler variations still require long periods of dehydrating time and, occasionally, ingredients that are difficult to find and work with. There's no denying the effort to make these dishes is well worth the wait, but many times you need something great to eat--now.
Enter Everyday Raw Express, bursting with recipes for full-flavored, original, and vibrant raw dishes. Each recipe is made with local, seasonal ingredients to achieve the healthiest food possible.
Try elixirs such as Lemongrass Pear Tonic or Red Beet Sangria. Savor pastas like Zucchini Noodles with Sweet Corn Pesto and Mint or entrees like Spring Vegetable Couscous with Fava Beans. The book includes delicious smoothies and salads and an entire chapter dedicated to condiments. Finish off your meal with a decadent dessert such as Banana Gelato or Spiced Pineapple with Rose Water and Pistachios.
Accessible, practical, and richly flavored, these raw food recipes utilize fresh ingredients at their peak in intense combinations. Explore your local stores, farmers markets, and artisanal products to make the freshest, healthiest food available.
Embracing the plant-based lifestyle of raw food is easier and less time-consuming than ever with Everyday Raw Express.

Half the recipes don't have any accompanying pictures, and I am sorry, but no, the ingredients used are not my "everyday" ingredients. See the cover? What you see is what you'll get! Also, recipes are mostly for 4-6 servings...
I would suggest buying individual books that focus on gaspachos, salads, smoothies, etc. instead.
I am returning it. This is the first time in 14 years of ordering on Amazon that I am returning an item...

If we are in need of taking a beautiful raw food dish somewhere, I reach for his books, and it never fails, the final dish is always beautiful and delicious. I agree, we eat with our eyes first :) Thanks for a book with a 30 minutes or less option!
Amazon wrapped this book well, it arrived undented. I appreciate books being send with cardboard and plastic wrap to keep them from being scuffed and dented. I want a new book to look new when we get it. Thank you Amazon.
Well, I've made more then 7 myself and I have liked a few of them quite a bit, but some are really not good, I second the cream of miso Shiitake as not good, raw shiitake are just rubber! I wish everything I tried was at least tasty but maybe not to my taste, but some were just bad.
I do think that the book is well laid out, recipes are clear and the equipment needed is not as intense as some raw books. This would be a good book to have once you know what raw tastes you like and can gauge say what raw shiitake's would taste like.
My favorite raw cookbook is, Going Raw by Judita Wignall, everything I've made in that one has been great.
When I bought the PF&W cookbook I was floored at the amount of lead/prep time and never bothered to recreate that lasagna which still haunts my dreams. I was thrilled to see Mister Kenney release Everyday Raw; but was still too intimidated to give any of the recipes a shot (dehydrators, food processors and soaking: oh my!)
Enter Everyday Raw Express. Finally, great tasting (and healthy) Raw food a la Kenney that is a snap to prepare. The Spaghetti & Meatballs were amazing. I reduced the amount of tahini in the recipe since tahini overpowers most elements it is mixed with and the results were stunning. Mom and I loved it. Can't wait to make this again.
I now have the confidence to move forward in preparing raw food and look forward to preparing more recipes in this book and Everyday Raw.
Thanks, Matthew & co. for helping me get on track with raw food. Hope to see more another Everyday Raw Express-like title in the future.
