After eating this Chinese-inspired Raw Vegetable "Unstirfry" you may wonder what you ever needed a wok for! The raw veggies stay crisp and colorful while softening up a bit in the dehydrator to give a warm, comforting feeling - just like cooked Chinese food.

For the sake of beauty and an array of nutrients, the recipe calls for three colors of bell peppers, but one will suffice. You can also skip the oil if you can't find cold-pressed sesame (olive and coconut oil will change the flavor considerably).

Pair this raw food vegetable dish with raw cauliflower "rice" for a filling meal.


  • 1 large zucchini, quartered and sliced
  • 1 cup cremini or button mushrooms, quartered
  • 1/4 each red, orange and yellow bell peppers, chopped

  • Optional: 2 tablespoons agave nectar
  • 1 teaspoon stone-ground mustard
  • Optional: 1 to 2 tablespoons cold-pressed sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon black or white sesame seeds

Steps to Make It
