This recipe is from “The Complete Book of Raw Food”, a really awesome cookbook that I will bring to our next potluck for anyone who would like to learn about it. I also was thinking that perhaps at the next potluck we could try a sort of “ceremony” where we announce the food we brought and its ingredients, or tell a story about it, or suggest the best way to eat it, or something to honor the meal. What do you think?
