Jolinda Hackett’s Veggie Website:http://www.vegetarian.about.com

I subscribe to a terrific website with vegetarian ideas and recipes. It’s called www.vegetarian.about.com and is written by Jolinda Hackett.

Recently Jolinda posted some cold soup recipes that looked delicious. In fact, she has been featuring many uncooked dishes that are perfect for warm, summer days. No muss, no fuss! I tried one of the soups right after we had purchased some sweet, white corn. I was not disappointed with the recipe, which was so easy that any one can make it. Here it is below, reprinted with permission. Be sure to check out the site! (I added fresh chives to my bowl for color.)

*Jolinda’s Raw Nut Milk recipe. (Make in advance and refrigerate.)

Many raw food recipes call for cashew milk or another “nut milk” such as raw almond milk. Raw cashew milk is also delicious on its own, with a breakfast cereal or spiced with a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg. If you’d like to try cashew milk as a non-dairy milk substitute, here’s how to make a raw cashew milk, suitable for vegans and also those on a raw food diet.

Ingredients:
* 1/2 cup raw cashews
* water
* sweetener (raw maple syrup, agave nectar or honey), optional
* dash sea salt, to taste

Preparation:
Cover raw cashews with water and allow to soak for at least one hour. Drain and rinse.

Place soaked cashews and 2 cups water into a blender or food processor and process until smooth, at least one full minute. Add a dash of raw sweetener, such as agave nectar, to taste.

You can use more or less water to vary the thickness of your raw cashew milk, depending on your personal preference, but in general, you want a 1:4 ratio of cashews to water.

You may also choose to strain your raw cashew milk, depending on personal preference.

  3. If your son or daughter won’t eat small pieces of these foods as finger foods, try mixing these with other foods your child likes.
    Protein could possibly be present in dairy foods like cottage cheese and
    greek yogurt. Coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, flax seeds, avocados, almonds, macadamias, walnuts, hemp
    seed, greek olives, reduced fat feta cheese, gorgonzola
    cheese, low-fat mozzarella cheese, sunflower seeds, unsalted organic peanut butter, almond butter.
