It's a good question and I have no obvious answer.
On checking this sentence database, (http://fraze.it/n_search.jsp?hardm=1&t;=0&l;=0&p;=2&q;=it+is+recommended+to), there are plenty of examples of sentences with "it is recommended to + base verb". But I don't like the style of any of them. In each case, I thought - what is "it" that is recommended, and when I discovered the answer, I thought - well, why didn't they just make that the subject of the passive phrase, and make the whole sentence simpler?
However, on the other hand, I would not have any problem with : it is advisable to...., which means the same.
In Murphy Unit 65A "English Grammar in Use", p130, he gives examples of common adjectives which you can use in this construction : it + is + adj + to ... None of his examples are participial adjectives.
Oxford and Collins don't list any example sentences with this construction either.
