Bayfield woman launches raw-food delivery service

company that delivers meals directly to homes in Bayfield, Durango and Ignacio.

Pico de Gallo Wraps

2 ears of corn, cut from the cob


1 large heirloom tomato, chopped


½ medium yellow onion, chopped


½ jalapeño, deveined, seeded and diced


½ cilantro or parsley, chopped


1 clove garlic, minced


½ yellow or red bell pepper, chopped


¼ teaspoon sea salt, or to taste


Juice of 1 lemon


4-6 romaine leaves


Pepper to taste


Nut base (optional)


1 cup raw nuts of choice (walnuts, pecans, almonds, pine nuts, or a blend)


1 tablespoon ground cumin


1 tablespoon ground coriander


1 teaspoon salt


1 garlic clove, minced


¼ cup olive oil


If including the nut base, grind all ingredients in a food processor until finely chopped and blended.


Mix the remaining ingredients, except the romaine leaves, until thoroughly combined. 


To assemble, place 1 tablespoon of the nut base in the center of a romaine leaf,  and top with pico mixture. Either fold like a taco or roll into a wrap and serve with Cucumber Aioli.

Cucumber Aioli

4-5 cucumbers


2-3 cloves garlic, minced


2 tablespoons hemp oil


Red pepper flakes, to taste


Sea salt, to taste


Using a vegetable peeler, skin the cucumbers. Continue to use the peeler to create strips of cucumbers until you reach the seedy center. (Snack on the seedy center while preparing the dish.) Place in a serving bowl and coat with remaining ingredients. Toss well and serve immediately. (This dish is best very fresh, because the salt will cause the cucumbers to release water and dilute the seasonings.)
