This makes a great lunch or dinner recipe idea.
This meal features alkalizing and raw, peppers, leafy greens and star fruit (Carambola). It’s not a completely raw food meal however. It has a good balance of raw and cooked foods, as well as an excellent balance of alkaline and acidic foods.
Most people think of stuffed peppers as a cooked food. It’s easier and less time consuming to use them raw.
Stuffed Raw Peppers and Seafood Sushi Wrap
Stuffed Raw Peppers
- Slice a couple peppers into thirds, removing seeds and stem. I like to use a couple different colors of peppers for visual variety.
- Shred some locally grown leafy greens. Thanks to StPete.LocallyGrown.net for providing the raw, chemical free leafy greens for this video shoot.
- Scoop some hummus into a bowl and blend in the shredded leafy greens. If you want to make the meal higher in raw foods, you could use avocado or guacamole instead of hummus.
- Spoon this mixture into the peppers.
- Slice the star fruit and use as a garnish
Seafood Sushi Wraps
- In this case I had bone broth that had been in the frig. This is totally optional. You could just warm up some fish and mixed veggies in a pan.
- Or if you wanted more “raw food” you could use sushi grade salmon or tuna. Any kind of seafood would work here.
- Sushi wraps are made from seaweed and are typically rich in iodine.
- Using a slotted spoon (letting the liquid drain away) spoon the seafood and veggies into the sushi wrap.
