Tzatziki is as fun to say as it is to eat. Quick to make, it’s always great for parties when friends are gathered round. And your gathered friends will have lots to talk about when they learn this cashew-based tzatziki is completely vegan and raw.
The tangy dill and lemon are balanced by the aroma of garlic, and the delicious creaminess of the blended cashews is a great replacement for yogurt. You get the digestive benefits of lemon and garlic, and the healthful fats and protein from cashews. And it’s all tied together by the dill.
Dill has a neat flavor which we usually associate with pickles. It’s a very simple way to add an exotic twist to your meals. This Mediterranean herb has been used in Greece for centuries both as a food and as a medicine. It’s now known to be anti-inflammatory a good source of antioxidants.
Tzatziki makes for a great veggie dip or as a spread.
SUSHI, I believe that sushi can be an opportunity for everyone to get creative. Yes- most people believe that sushi consists of raw fish and rice…nope- I beg to differ! Sushi should be looked at as “cut up ingredients all wrapped up in nori (seaweed sheets)”! I also think that is an opportunity to get your veggies in. Today I went to the farmers market and was faced with the sea of organic fruits and veggies. The one thing that stood out, besides the tip-of-my-thumb sized organic blueberries that I bought, was a vendor that had pink organic oyster mushrooms.
AMAZING–I have never seen PINK oyster mushrooms! Apparently they taste the same as white oyster mushrooms but are a vibrant pink hue… very curious and beautiful! Instead of searing them or marinating them like most do, I decided to make a raw dish– hence the PINK OYSTER MUSHROOM ROLL was born.
Eating cherry tomatoes may offer particular benefits for men. Lycopene, a compound found in tomatoes, can impact prostate health. Any recipe that has the word “poppers” in it means you are going to have a flavor explosion! Well these BLACK CHERRY TOMATO POPPERS are just that!
