As my Christmas gift to you, I thought I would share one of the recipes from the Rawmazing Holiday Book. This is a great recipe for introducing people to raw foods at any of your holiday parties. Pictured with one of my favorite crackers, Almond Crackers with Tarragon (also from the book) this Cranberry Walnut “Cheese” with Thyme makes a great appetizer. No one will believe it’s raw!
The Rawmazing Holiday book is full of wonderful recipes based on all our traditional favorites from the holidays. You can order it here: Rawmazing Holidays.
Wishing all of you a wonderful holiday season!
