Issue 38: Paul Nison's Raw Recipes

Paul Nison brings a wealth of information and experience in raw food nutrition. He is passionate about raw food and its health benefits. Paul believes that raw is the most healthful way we can eat our foods—so healthful, in fact, that eating food raw is also known as eating live foods and uncooked foods. Paul knows that raw food recipes help make eating raw foods a delicious, fun, quick, inexpensive and simple experience—so here are a few of his recipes.


Mushroom Pizza
Serves 2

1 Portobello mushroom
1 tomato
3 tablespoons of almond butter or tahini dressing (See Paul’s Tahini Dressing recipe below.)

Clean and stem mushrooms so you just have the mushroom caps. Clean mushroom caps and turn upside down. Put lemon juice over them, and then add nut spread. Next, make very thin tomato slices and lay them on top. Enjoy!


Tahini Dressing
Serves 5

4 oz.. of raw tahini
½ lemon, juiced

Serves 4

2 bunches of spinach
1 bunch fresh basil
