This is a recipe for raw mole sauce which I created when one day I was wondering what I might do with my new bag of raw cacao nibs (ohmygosh, they are divine), and I suddenly had a hankering for mole!

This should absolutely be tweaked and adjusted for your own taste and whatever ingredients you have on hand:

3 T raw tahini
3 T raw almond butter
3 t raw cacao nibs
3 t ground raw cacao powder

Place the above in a strong blender or a food processor and blend together until relatively smooth.

Then add:

1 large tomato
1 small avocado
1/2 small onion
1 handful of raw pumpkin seeds
1 handful of raisins
1 t minced garlic
1 t Udo’s oil or olive oil
1/2 t cayenne pepper
1/2 t black peppercorns
1/2 t cinnamon
1/4 t ground cloves
salt to taste

Blend well. Use immediately or store in fridge and let the flavours blend together a bit.

We serve it over mushrooms (mushroom mole), although there may be something over which it would be even better!
