One of my favorite raw recipes: soak walnuts, drain, and puree with fresh herbs and garlic of your choice. Thinly slice zucchini (I use a mandolin). Spread a generous helping of your walnut puree on each zucchini slice, roll each up like a pinwheel, securing with a toothpick if necessary. Dehydrate at 95 degrees for at least 60 minutes, up to 2-3 hours depending on how firm you want them. YUM!

"If you’ve adopted a high raw, healthy diet, likely you already enjoy walnuts on a regular basis. Here’s more good news for you: Among all its other health benefits, according to a recent study, walnuts improve blood-vessel health and function in patients with type-2 diabetes. This is important, as diabetics are at a higher risk for heart disease, and the improvement seen in this study suggests that walnuts could help reduce overall cardiac risk."
