Submitted by Marie-Claire Hermans – Ravishing Raw |

A new year brings new intentions, new plans and new goals. It is very often related to not feeling comfortable with one’s weight, health issues or handling stress. After an inspired start though, most people tend to fall back into old patterns and frustrations. Eating more consciously and raw is the most guaranteed way to see and feel the difference. Making it a lifestyle instead of a diet is the key to achieving your goals successfully. Simply because raw food cleanses the body until it becomes a clean slate; with which you can create a whole new life. Any time is a good time to make the decision to take a healthy beginning. So, what about…now?

INGREDIENTS FOR MARINATED MUSHROOMS (2 servings)

About ½ to 1 pound of mushrooms
A handful of parsley
Some thyme
A sprig of rosemary
Olive oil
1/4 tsp sea salt
Some black pepper
A small handful of pine nuts (optional, but nice!)

INSTRUCTIONS FOR MARINATED MUSHROOMS

Slice up the mushrooms
Pour enough olive oil over them to coat the mushrooms well
Add the pine nuts, chop up the herbs and stir them under the mushrooms
Set aside and let them marinate for 30 minutes

INGREDIENTS FOR SPICY GUACAMOLE

2 avocados
¼ tsp sea salt (to taste)
1 Jalapeño pepper without seeds and cubed very finely!
1 TBSP fresh lemon juice
Some course black pepper (to taste)

INSTRUCTIONS FOR SPICY GUACAMOLE

Mash up or blend the avocados with the seasonings and lemon juice
Add the fine cubes of Jalapeño by hand

TWIN TOWERS

Place two ring molds on a nice plate
Fill one ring with the marinated mushrooms
Fill the other ring with guacamole
Take off the rings slowly

TIPS

Warm up the prepared mushrooms in your dehydrator or oven at 108°F for 1 hour
These Twin Towers make a lovely and fancy looking starter if served alone
Served with a mixed salad they become a light, yet filling meal
Wild mushrooms look even more like “cooked” after marinating
Don’t over process avocados: the taste can become bitter then
