Squash Beggar’s Purse with Pomegranate and Sage

My friend, Farmer Gray, dropped off a huge bag of squash for me a while back. I have been slowly working through all of the little beauties, making tons of great raw food recipes. Today, I decided to make some squash wraps for a little beggar’s purse.. A cashew sage cream sauce is the perfect accompaniment.



These little “beggars purses” are filled with a mixture of pumpkin seeds, almonds, shredded squash, spinach, and pomegranate seeds! Make the wraps the day ahead and you will have a perfect little treat.

    These look absolutely fabulous! My husband and I are trying to be more and more raw, and I really really really want to make them since we just got a Excalibur dehydrator! Unfortunately, I don’t have access to fresh coconuts as I am located in rural Arkansas. Is there any raw substitute for young coconut flesh?

    I concur with everyone, VERY creative! I could eat a whole bunch of those 🙂

    I thank you, too, Rene, since its almost impossible to find young coconuts in the Ouachita Mountains of Arkansas! 😉

    Thanks so much I have never made anything with coconut meat and thanks to you I can.

    You can substitute 1/4 cup coconut cream concentrate for the meat in one Thai coconut. If it’s not available in your area, you can find it at

    I am in the process of making these right now for a tea tomorrow! They look so beautiful and will be perfect for the tea.
