A few special raw living food recipes to make for yourself and to share with others and can be also classified as easy raw food recipes.
There are so many raw food recipes out there, sometimes it's hard to know just where to start, so I've provide for you some “starter” raw living food recipes. These recipes have been kindly contributed by Susan Schenck, the author of the two-time, award winning book The Live Food Factor, The Comprehensive Guide to the Ultimate Diet for Body, Mind, Spirit & Planet. Her book (which hit number 23 in all genres at Amazon.com in January 2009) has gained the reputation as the raw food encyclopedia or bible.
All of the below recipes and many, many more raw living food recipes can be found in her book The Live Food Factor.

This is a big hit everywhere I have taken it. I always get requests for the recipe! If you want to make it creamier, simply add more celery stalks and a little more almond butter or olive oil. S.S.
1 bunch of celery (about 8 stalks)
1 bunch of cilantro
1 bunch of fresh dill
¼ to ½ cup of unpasteurized olive oil (or substitute ½ cup water and ½ cup nut or seed butter for greater hygienic purity)
½ cup of raw almond butter or raw tahini
3 cloves of garlic
2 to 4 tablespoons of unpasteurized miso (optional — substitute dulse)
2 tablespoons of nama shoyu (optional — substitute dulse)
¼ cup of lemon juice (if not available, raw apple cider vinegar)
8 cups of water
Blend in a Blend-Tec or Vita-Mix, adding a little of the ingredients at a time until creamy. Serves about 10.
This is a big hit at potlucks, even cooked ones! People like this one for winter and the celery/cilantro base alone for summer. S.S.
2 zucchinis, grated
2 carrots, grated
2 avocados, cut up into chunks
Corn kernels from 3 ears of corn
1 bell pepper, chopped
Put the vegetables into the celery/cilantro base recipe above. Gently stir. Serves 10 to 12.
A friend of mine serves this soup every time we go to his house, and my husband and I can’t get enough! He says he has experimented with it a lot and found that the only crucial ingredients that cannot be omitted or substituted are the avocado and tomato, which is why I gave it this name. S.S.
2 cups of water
1 large tomato
1 ripe avocado
2 cloves of garlic
Juice from a small lime
½ to ¾ cup broccoli
1 big, red kale leaf
4 small chilies or 1 jalapeño (optional — omit for hygienic purity)
4 to 5 stalks of bok choy
1 inch of fresh turmeric
1 red bell pepper
¼ cup of flaxseeds
1 teaspoon of powdered sea vegetables
2 tablespoons of raw apple cider vinegar (or substitute lemon juice)
2 tablespoons of nama shoyu (optional)
Blend ingredients in Blend-Tec or Vita-Mix until very creamy. Serves 2 to 4.
