Raw Chicken Tenders

Wonder Girl and I cheated on this recipe for Raw BBQ Chicken Fingers, which of course contain no meat products (cuz raw chicken flesh is just nasty). It's the first Alissa Cohen recipe I've tried, and I'm so glad I did. We all loved these!

The original recipe calls for sprouted lentils, but they take a few days to sprout, so we used soaked sunflower seeds instead. I still want to try the lentils. I'm curious to see if they'll give an even meatier texture. Next time I'll try making a Raw BBQ sauce for dipping. The sweet and sour sauce we had was delicious, but not what I wanted with these.

We love our dehydrated treats, but like to make sure our meals are still primarily whole, fresh foods, thus the salads.

Hey looks good. I haven't made any "meat" yet except taco meat, which I think of as beans so I'll have to check this out.

Raw Beans?! That's a first for me!That's probably a better way to think of that stuff though--closer than "meat" and more appealing.

Let me know if you try the lentils. Still curious about those.

Oh the "beans" were made from raw walnuts. The recipe I followed uses sunflower seeds but I subbed them for the walnuts. Hubby thinks of the mixture as meat while I think of it more as refried beans. The consistency of it. I ended up using it for Mexican pizzas and tacos. YUM!

I'll have to check out the lentils sometime. I have never used them. :)
