Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

IF YOU LOVE the philosophy behind and benefits of eating raw, but need something great to eat in a hurry, the answer is here. Everyday Raw Express gives great, simple, tasty, healthful recipes—fast! In 30 minutes or less. While raw food has captured our imaginations with its growing presence in upscale restaurants and through its beautiful, colorful imagery in cookbooks, many recipes by raw food chefs are admittedly complicated or time-consuming to make. Even many of the simpler variations still require long periods of dehydrating time and, occasionally, ingredients that are difficult to find and work with. There’s no denying the effort to make these dishes is well worth the wait, but many times you need something great to eat—now.

Enter Everyday Raw Express, bursting with recipes for full-flavored, original, and vibrant raw dishes. Each recipe is made with local, seasonal ingredients to achieve the healthiest food possible.

Try elixirs such as Lemongrass Pear Tonic or Red Beet Sangria. Savor pastas like Zucchini Noodles with Sweet Corn Pesto and Mint or entrées like Spring Vegetable Couscous with Fava Beans. The book includes delicious smoothies and salads and an entire chapter dedicated to condiments. Finish off your meal with a decadent dessert such as Banana Gelato or Spiced Pineapple with Rose Water and Pistachios.

Accessible, practical, and richly flavored, these raw food recipes utilize fresh ingredients at their peak in intense combinations. Explore your local stores, farmers markets, and artisanal products to make the freshest, healthiest food available.

Embracing the plant-based lifestyle of raw food is easier and less time-consuming than ever with Everyday Raw Express.

I just bought the Kindle version of this book and love it!The first recipe I tried was the "Spaghetti" with "Meatballs". I bought a spiral slicer to make the spaghetti with. Also the recipe for the marinara sauce is fantastic!! My Meat loving boyfroend was amazed at how good the zuchinni noodles were and actually went back for seconds!! I am so excited to try more recipes from this book and eat healthier in 2012!!

I did like this Raw Food Express, and most of the dishes can be prepared relatively quickly, but quite a few of them do require you to have made up some of the ingredients yesterday or the day before (does this count as express?) Still, this book has enough interesting recipes for me to keep it on my shelf and refer back to it from time to time.Everyday Raw Express: Recipes in 30 Minutes or Less

All of Matthew Kenney's "Raw Food" books are filled with delicious recipes and eye-candy photos!!! Some of his other books have more complex recipes, which are so worth the time to make, and this one is even better for us because the recipes are quick and easy.

If we are in need of taking a beautiful raw food dish somewhere, I reach for his books, and it never fails, the final dish is always beautiful and delicious. I agree, we eat with our eyes first :) Thanks for a book with a 30 minutes or less option!

Amazon wrapped this book well, it arrived undented. I appreciate books being send with cardboard and plastic wrap to keep them from being scuffed and dented. I want a new book to look new when we get it. Thank you Amazon.

I've been familiar with Matthew Kenney's raw food since dining at Pure Food and Wine six years ago.

When I bought the PF&W cookbook I was floored at the amount of lead/prep time and never bothered to recreate that lasagna which still haunts my dreams. I was thrilled to see Mister Kenney release Everyday Raw; but was still too intimidated to give any of the recipes a shot (dehydrators, food processors and soaking: oh my!)

Enter Everyday Raw Express. Finally, great tasting (and healthy) Raw food a la Kenney that is a snap to prepare. The Spaghetti & Meatballs were amazing. I reduced the amount of tahini in the recipe since tahini overpowers most elements it is mixed with and the results were stunning. Mom and I loved it. Can't wait to make this again.

I now have the confidence to move forward in preparing raw food and look forward to preparing more recipes in this book and Everyday Raw.

Thanks, Matthew & co. for helping me get on track with raw food. Hope to see more another Everyday Raw Express-like title in the future.

I've made a decent amount of recipes from this book and I feel like I'm able to write a good review now for this book. What I like about it is how quick and easy the recipes are. Makes going raw that much easier. I also like the variety of recipes- smoothies, drinks, soups, starters, mains etc. Unfortunately, after making seven odd recipes, there are only a few I thought were absolutely delicious and would make again. Here's a rundown on the recipes I've made.

Cream of miso with shiitake mushrooms. Really don't like this one. The base of the soup is good but I don't like shiitake mushrooms raw. They taste better cooked in my opinion.

Zucchini with sweet corn pesto. This was nice. I enjoyed the flavors and textures in this one.

Spaghetti and meatballs. Spaghetti was good. I messed up the recipe for the meatballs so I dont know how they tasted.

Squash blossoms tamales with sweet pea puree. I didn't like this one. I'm not sure what I did wrong but the tamale part was just mushy. No bueno.

Spring vegetable couscous. Made but haven't tried yet.

Portobello steak with wilted spinach. As long as you put a lot of marinated on this one, I like it.

Chocolate hemp milk custard. Fabulous! I love love love this recipe! It's genius and tastes great.

I think my palate is a stickler for texture more than anything. For the mushroom recipes, I may pressure cook the mushrooms and add them to the recipes. Overall, some great recipes, some misses in my book.

I have all of Matthew's books. In this book Matthiew Kenney outdid himself. Many times when short on time I can't spend a lot of time on food... this book gives so many cleaver yet quick ideas. Great Job Matthew!

Raw is can be difficult - no doubt about it. This book has beautiful pictures but the recipes are monotonous. Cashews, agave, lemon juice, soy sauce, nutritional yeast over and over. The reason I gave this book one star is that the handful of recipes I tried didn't work. They were not balanced in terms of flavor or seasoning.

I suggest the Cafe Gratitude book because it introduces you to the world of raw. There are also some great websites.

This was one of my wedding registry "must haves". Having tried out a month of "raw" diet this spring I anxiously awaited the arrival of this book. The pictures are amazing and inspiring and the recipes are well written, clear and simple. I am only hoping to also the rest of my raw kitchen. The one thing that makes the recipes difficult is that you really need to have certain tools to make them work.
