This was my first RAW gourmet dish. Me and my friend Elin were totally stoked discovering RAW food when we visited NYC last june. We tried a lot of places, and we tried Quintessence first. I was in seventh heaven and had this salad 3 times, and now back in Sweden, I got the ingredients from Quintessence, and ate it like 6 weeks in a row for lunch, it's totally addictive and out of this world delicious!
It needs 4 - 6hr non-intensive cooking preparations, soaking and drying cashews and red onion. Do it when you are home an evening or morning, it's easy!
5-7 romaine lettuce leaves in pieces
at least half an avocado in big pieces
1 tomato in thin slices
1 C 4 - 6 h soaked natural cashews
1 garlic clove
2 teasp miso
juice of 1/2 citron c.a 1/8 C
1 - 2 C water to make it pourable, but still thick
2 very thinly sliced red onions, preferably with a mandoline, (makes 2 servings). A mandoline can be found cheap at second hand stores. Oven dry slices at 114° for 1,5h. I turn my oven on the lowest temperature and prop the ovendoor open with a chopstick. Oh what a sweet chewey bacon taste!
And a lot of gomasio = unhulled sesame seads soaked 4-6 hr then 1 - 2 hr oventoasted, see above, then blend with a tiny bit of salt. I use 1/2 C dry seeds to 1/4+ teasp salt
