I've tried her Pineapple IceBox Dessert and it's awesome I've made it my own on 2 different recipes with mango raspberry and banana.

This is one of my favorite desserts.

Lolz, so true.

I like the Baja cheeze, taco nut meat, donut holes and lemon bars (reminded me of lemon larabars but a bit more dessert-y).

Woah, this happened to me too except I now have an aversion to mushrooms! I wanted to make the Mushroom Ceviche from Viva Vegan (because I used to really enjoy mushrooms and ceviche sounded good), but since I had Ani's shiitake soup, I just haven't been able to do anything with the mushies. :/

You can cut the oil considerably in the soups. I know I did for one of her soup recipes after trying one with the full on oil and it was leaking out of my thermos and just too oily. I cut it down from 1 cup of oil (crazy! if you ask me) to 1/4 of a cup (like one poster here already mentioned) and it all came out all right. At the time I subbed with plain water and next time, I might sub with an equal amount of the pureed interior of a peeled and seeded cuke and water (just to retain some thickness) to replace the oil.

I'm thinking about getting one of Ani's books, but I can't decide which one would be best to get if I have no dehydrator (though my conventional oven has it as a setting), and only a blender and food processor.

I'm between Raw Food Kitchen and Raw Food Essentials. Does anyone have a favorite of these two? Which one would be more budget- and user-friendly?

RFE has way more recipes, but I still haven't made anything from it. I'll have to think about that though - I'll get back to you :)

I have Raw Food Essentials. The cereal recipe with the pumpkin and chia seeds was okay. VERY cleansing! I tried the basic cookie recipe and it was very good (I just threw in 1/2 cup raw cacao powder and some crushed raw cashews in there for the extra part...tasted like brownies). They took FOREVER to dehydrate though in a Nesco dehydrator.

Has anyone made the "Cheddar" Kale Chips? They seem okay crispy when they come out of the dehydrator but they begin to soften right afterward. And I'm not sure they're getting 100% dehydrated if there are some tiny red pepper pieces on them. I've tried both the 8 hour and 10 hour drying times but still no perma-crisp.

If you don't have a dehydrator, I think you might get more use from Raw Food Kitchen. There are only a couple of recipes in that book which use a dehydrator, a bread and a burger (but the burger can be eaten fresh).

I have both books and I use the first one more. I should really go through Raw Food Essentials again and pick out some non-dehydrated recipes to try.

I've made those kale chips a bunch of times. I make the whole recipe, but only use enough goo to coat my greens, then dehydrate. Otherwise, they don't crisp up for me (but they're still really, really yummy and I usually just eat them standing in front of the dehydrator). I thin the rest of the goo with water, then use it as salad dressing or add it to the raw chili in RFE :)

I really liked the corn soup - but I have made some of the others with the full amount of oil & it kind of gagged me. I can't seem to eat raw foods, every time I do I get super sick to my stomach & get a headache. It's kind of a bummer. I do like a good raw smoothie in the morning though!

Thanks! I'll try it with less sauce next time. And yes, I eat most of them before they're "done" too!

This took me forever niev, sorry!! The first one. I think her 2nd one has a lot more, but there's something sort of...inviting and accessible about the 1st one.

Thanks, appifanie! This will be the next cookbook I buy, if I'm better with my impulses.

I just got Raw Food Essentials yesterday at the bookstore as it was super on-sale! This is my first adventure into raw foods, and I want to incorporate more raw into my diet, so I thought this would be a good place to start.

Does anyone have a rec for the first recipe I should try? Obvs not a soup!

I have a good dehydrator (Excalibur base model), a crappy blender, and a decent food processor, so I should be okay for most of this book. I don't have a mandoline or spiralizer though, so stuff using those will have to wait.

Thanks ppk!

I have all her books but the first one. I've tried the flax pancakes and I like them (saw several people here didn't). They are sweet, to me it's more like a dessert, lol. I also tried a pate. I think it was the almond ginger pate or something like that. It was really good.

I know this is an old thread, but I have been following her book Ani's 15-Day Fat Blast. I just finished day 6 and am pretty happy with the recipes and the results. I weighed in 5 pound lighter than I was when I started. The soups in this book are not oil heavy. There is some coconut oil, but not an excessive amount. I've never really done much raw, but I feel really energetic and I haven't been hungry at all. I am in love with the Thermo dressing.
