What are falafels without the perfect crispy falafel ball? Texture and taste is key. After trying more than a few recipes, I really feel I nailed it! This recipe is fairly easy to make, tastes just like the real thing, and leaves you feeling light!
Buddha bowls are one of my favorite dishes. They’re great because you get to combine a lot of different ingredients and get essential vitamins and minerals from the various veggies.
Tomorrow is Superbowl Sunday. Whether you’re a fan of the sport or not, that likely means you’ll be spending the day relaxing at home, perhaps parked in front of the TV. Or perhaps not! In any event, you may at some point find yourself wanting a simple, easy snack that you can quickly throw together. Well, why not some raw popcorn? Okay okay, so it isn’t corn and it hasn’t popped. But it serves the same function! It’s tasty, fun, and easy. So try this cauliflower “popcorn”!
If raw vegan nori rolls with sunflower mayonnaise and tamari salsa excites you, then we’ve got two pieces of good news for you! This is the first awesome recipe from raw vegan chef Jay Halford.
Couscous! What a wonderful name for a wonderful dish. Couscous is one of the world’s most favorite foods, with a history that goes back centuries in North Africa. It’s a staple food throughout much of North Africa and the Middle East, and is also quite popular in Europe and the Mediterranean. I bet it would go great with some halvah!
This innovative raw vegan version of the classic couscous is inspired by Mediterranean flavors. It’s got capers, sundried tomatoes, parsley and (of course) olive oil! Cauliflower makes for a great couscous base, and there’s more than enough awesome rawsome ingredients to keep you nourished and delighted.
Couscous! It’s so nice, you’ll want to make it twice.
Did you know that eating spicy food might just be really good for you? As if we needed another reason to feel the burn!
Cauliflower may not have wings, but neither does a buffalo. You don’t need to eat a chicken if you’re looking to get your spice on. All you need is some crispy cauliflower, a handful of spices, and a tall glass of water (just in case!).
As any spice junky can tell you, no buffalo “wing” is complete without an equally tasty dip. And since we’re talking buffalo, it might as well be a ranch dip! Creamy and tangy with avocado and lemon, it provides a great contrast to the hot hot heat of the cauliflower.
These buffalo “wings” are a great party snack. If you’ve got a few friends coming round, you can easily scale the recipe up.
This interesting recipe was inspired by an unlikely source: mall food-court style “Chinese” food. It seems weird to think so now, but so many of us grew up loving the sweet taste of that orange sauce. I remember growing up thinking that deep fried chicken balls in orange sauce was a classic of Chinese cuisine.
Now we all know better, and aren’t liable to be found snacking on the fast-food variety of Asian cooking. But there is still something magical about the sweet and savory mix of that orange sauce. With this great guilt-free recipe, you can enjoy that incomparable taste without all the added sugars and other weirdness.
Usually, cous cous is made of seminola. And usually you don’t find it rolled up in cucumber. That makes this dish somewhat unusual, and that’s partly what makes it so great. Sometimes you come across ideas you can’t believe you hadn’t thought of. For ideas like these cauliflower cous cous cucumber rolls, we can all just be glad that someone came up with it.
In this case, the cous cous is made not from wheat but from cauliflower. The little cauliflower crumbles actually do a pretty good job of imitating traditional cous cous, but with the added benefits of keeping these cucumber rolls raw and gluten-free!
These refreshing morsels make a great appetizer or snack if you’re entertaining. Easy to make, easy to enjoy, and light on the stomach. Shared between just a couple people, they also make for an awesome light lunch.
The combination of raisins, tahini, and chili makes for a really neat texture and flavoring. Mildly sweet, a little spicy, and a little creamy, these cucumber rolls manage to pack a lot of flavor while keeping it mild. Tahini really has a unique capacity for tying things together, and is great generally if you need to avoid using peanut butter.
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!
