Ani's Raw Food Essentials!

Last week while checking out book's at Half Price Bookstore..I spied Ani's new book on their new release shelf.  I was thrilled to see a her book available there.  This is the first raw food book I have found at this bookstore.
Ani has done it again!!
Her recipes are uncomplicated and always bursting with flavor.
This book is a raw fooder's essential book.  If you are new to raw foods this book will fill you in on all the necessary info to get you started.  It even has recipes for Nontoxic cleansers.
Pictured above is Ani's RED PEPPER HUMMUS (BEAN-FREE)
I love hummus...but me and beans have issues...this no bean hummus is extremely flavorful, with a perfect texture for a spread or as a dip.  I opted for an orange pepper rather than red.

Inspired by Ani's un-cookbook I purchased some collards and made my first collard roll ups.
I just filled mine with what I had on hand....Avocado, red bell pepper, tomato, sprouts, Bragg's Liquid Amino's and dulse granules.
One of Ani's recipes stuffs them with her recipe for Avocado-Pistachio Pesto..mushrooms and some other yummy eats.
I was surprised at how mild the collards are and they held my wrap together very well.  I was quite satisfied after eating one of these.  My son enjoyed the other one.

I need a little more practice rolling these babies up.
I believe I started at the wrong end?
