This Green Glowing Smoothie Bowl is like a delicious fruit salad in ice cream form. But instead of the sugar and junk you might find in that regular old ice cream we all remember from our younger days, you’ve got basil leaves, kale, and a plethora of lovely fruits!
It’s like nice cream, but it’s a smoothie bowl. A smoothie in a bowl. Come on!
An age old question: what’s a fruit, and what’s a vegetable? Are tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers really fruits just because they contain seeds? Most children feel they know the answer intuitively: fruit is sweet and goes with ice cream and smoothies, and vegetables belong in salads.
This Spicy Chili Mango Soup adds a whole new layer of complexity into this timeless debate. Maybe fruits are vegetables!
With the combination of sweet and spicy, this mango soup has a distinctively Thai feel. There’s no cuisine like Thai cuisine for blending contrasting flavors flawlessly into mouthwatering dishes. Its a world of sweet and spicy, and hot and sour. This soup would fit right in!
Us North Americans could learn a lot from Thai, Burmese and other cuisines from distant lands. How to use sweet fruits with savory dishes is right at the top of that list, and it might topple the age-old divide between fruit and vegetables once and for all.
This delightful fruity salad is a great way to get yourself into the spring mindset! Super easy to make, this strawberry cauliflower salad is also easy on the wallet. And with all that money you’ve saved, you can get out there and enjoy the fresh new season!
Salads are as much about texture as they are about taste. The cauliflower adds that crunchy dimension you often get from nuts (or pomegranates!). But feel free to add some chopped almonds or walnuts in there too, if you’re looking for a little more crunch or some extra protein.
The best part of this recipe though is the dressing. There’s nothing like a good salad dressing. Oil and vinegar goes a long way, but sometimes you want to add a little sweetness to your life. The combination of onion, garlic and vinegar with strawberries and agave syrup makes for an unforgettable, tangy dressing that you’ll probably want to put on all sorts of salads. And that raw garlic isn’t just for flavor!
Because this salad is so sweet, chef Lisa Viger even recommends having it for breakfast. Talk about versatility: a strawberry cauliflower salad that can be had for breakfast, lunch, or dessert. You might even be tempted to make some for dinner!
This raw zucchini pasta with pesto is an amazing replacement for your traditional wheat spaghetti. Aside from pizza and ice cream, pasta has got to be one of the most popular favorite foods. Especially for kids. And for good reason. Pasta is a delicious, nostalgic comfort food that most of us grow up with in one way or another. But that stuff isn’t exactly nutrient rich, and we aren’t always looking to carbo-load.
Zucchini pasta solves all of that. It looks and feels almost exactly like old-fashioned noodles, but with all the nutritional benefits of a raw food. Looking at the pictures, you’d have a hard time picking raw zucchini pasta out from traditional noodles. The texture is so close, it’s also used to make lasagna.
The raw garlic provides much of the classic spaghetti flavour, and the pesto adds a zestful creaminess. Pasta is often a family tradition, and with this great dish you can keep it going while maintaining a healthy raw diet. This raw vegan zucchini pasta proves that comfort food can be healthful food.
