  • HOLY MOLÉ!!! 
  • Makes 2 cups

Presoak for 4 hours, reserve liquid:
2 dozen sun-dried tomatoe halves, soaked overnight in water 
2 dried chipotle chiles, soaked overnight in water

1 T Lime juice
11/2 tsp Salt
1 Large Avocado
11/2 tsp Cumin
3 T cacao or cocoa powder
1/4 c Olive oil
3 Large dates
1 c Soak water from tomatoes and chiles (or fresh water)

Drain tomatoes and chiles, reserving the water from each ingrediant separately.  Blend tomatoes & chiles and all other ingrediants in a blender or Vitamix.  Add one cup of liquid (chipotle/tomatoe/or fresh water) ** Remember chipotle water is spicy!  You want enough liquid so the blender is able to pull ingrediants from the top down.  Stop blending when you have a smooth texture that is not too watery.

Peel the cucumber, cut it in half and trim off the ends.  Then, using a small paring knife, cut the seeds out and stuff them with the mock tuna.  Make sure you stuff it tightly.  Once the cucumber is stuffed, roll it in a mixture of black and white sesame seeds or gomashio.

1 c  cashews. Soaked and  drained
1 clove garlic
1/2 c. lemon juice, freshly squeezed
