Raw Teriyaki Cashew Stir-Fry

It is the first day of my raw food cleanse and so far so good but not drinking on New Years... now that effing sucked.  You can hear more about it in my video blog that will be posted this evening. Started the day with a banana with almond butter, then had a basket of strawberries as a snack and then for lunch  I made the delightful stir-fry pictured above.  This is a top of the line raw recipe that anyone can appreciate.  It is super easy and I am considering never cooking my stir-fry's again... but I will not be giving up my brown rice!  You can use whatever vegetables you like for this recipe but I highly recommend using a lot of mushrooms, they really soak of the sauce and add a nice meaty texture.

I am on the hunt for some good raw food recipes so if you have any please share:)

Raw Teriyaki Cashew Stir-Fry

Teriyaki Sauce:
3 tablespoons nama shoyu ( I used Braggs)
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 clove garlic
1 inch of ginger peeled
2-3 dates depending on how sweet you like your sauce
1/4 cup water

1 1/2 sliced mushrooms
1 cup bell pepper cut into thin 1 inch pieces (I used red and orange but any color will work)
2 cups of chopped bok choy
2 cups of broccoli cut into 1 inch pieces
3/4 carrots sliced thinly
3/4 cups raw cashews
other veggie possibilities: asparagus, snow peas, green onion, onion, zuchinni, cabbage or whatever you want....

1.  To make sauce add all ingredients into a blender and blend until a creamy sauce is formed.

2.  Place all chopped vegetables in a bowl and top with the teriyaki sauce and let marinade at room temperature for at least 1/2 hour and it is ready to eat.  The longer the sauce sits with the vegetables the better it will taste, I would recommend letting it marinate for 2-3 hours at room temperature to really let the vegetables soak up the flavor.
