Here are two recipes in the raw and packed with kosher soul. Your tastebuds won't know the difference!

Asparagus Pesto

1 ½ cups diced asparagus
3 cloves of garlic
1/3 cup pine nuts
¼ cup walnuts
1 tablespoon of fresh basil
1-2 teaspoons of sea salt
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

Mix the first six ingredients in a food processor. Slowly add the olive oil. Use as a dip or spread

Mango Pudding

2 Mangos
1/4 Lime (Optional)
Shredded Coconut & Chopped Pecans, to taste

Use a vegetable peeler to peel mangos. Then place a knife flush to one of the flat sides of the mango pit and cut the mango away from the pit. Add 1/4 lime and blend until perfectly smooth.
