Never question Martha Stewart. She knows what she is talking about. Take this recipe for example.
I love raw recipes because they are quick, simple and delicious! Seriously. Sometimes I don't want to cook. I just want to eat the deliciousness that I plan to put on my plate. This was one of those recipes. I found this recipe on Pinterest but had to make a few adjustments. No farmer's cheese? Just use ricotta. I also could not find basil so I decided to add some pesto to the cheese.
This would make a great appetizer for guests who are leery about raw or vegetarian meals. For me, it's perfect for a weeknight meal. Because when I get home late, who wants to spend the next hour cooking? Not me!
