The Best Christmas Pie Ever!

by Leisa on December 21, 2007

This recipe comes from Alissa Cohen and is found in her fantastic book “Living on Live Food”; it is just perfect for the holiday season! Many people think that living healthfully on raw food means that you have to go without flavour and enjoyment – but this recipe proves how good raw food can taste!  It’s so simple and easy that even I – the self professed Kitchen Klutz – can make it (picture proof below).  :-)

Your guests will think it is absolutely divine – guaranteed!

The Pecan Pie really looks cooked – I presume it must be raw – More info needed. Thanks.
