Going green? Always make sure you have a “rawnola” on hand. This super-nutty, super-fruity raw vegan buckwheat granola recipe is a crowd pleaser!
These delicious fruity crepes are great either for dessert for an extra special breakfast. There’s nothing quite as charming as the apple caramel combination. These apple caramel crepes are super easy to make — the dehydrator does most of the work! And when your crepes are made from bananas and flax, you don’t even need to feel too guilty if you do decide to enjoy these irresistibly sweet treats first thing in the morning. Maybe wash them down with some sweet, tangy juice!
These great little mini-pies are awesome for entertaining. Quick to make, super-duper delicious, and not too bad to look at, either! This impressive caramel pecan pie has a high payoff for just a little bit of effort. It’s sound economics, people! Or is that taste economics? You decide! Treat yourself and your friends to a little caramel pecan pie!
Banana cake is where it’s at. What sort of mood are you in? Are you happy? Well have some banana cake. Feeling sad? Banana cake will make you feel better. Craving something indulgent and rich? Banana cake! Celebrating? Have some banana cake!
It’s soft but it’s firm. It’s got crunchy nuts but the creaminess of banana. It is the yin and yang of cake. It’s a good piece of dessert, is what we’re saying. And if all that weren’t enough, it’s so simple even the clumsiest cuisinier could put it together.
Alright, so this cake is raw, vegan, and double chocolate. But what if I told you it was also low in fat?
This isn’t some marketing gimmick and there’s no hydrogenated weirdness. This double chocolate layer cake is actually just made from oats, fruit and cacao. Can you believe it? This is definitely not the cake I would imagine if someone had told me to envision a layer cake made of oats and fruit. Not before now, anyways.
Lots of really amazing raw vegan cakes and confections rely on the magical creaminess of cashews, and that’s totally awesome. But those nuts are pretty fatty, which is great if you’re looking for a source of essential fatty acids. But sometimes you wanna have a big piece of double chocolate layer cake without feeling all heavy and lethargic (talk about having your cake and eating it!).
That’s where this comes in! All the richness and creaminess you need provided by figs, raisins and oats. Who knew that such a thing was possible?
There’s something special about cabbage. It’s just so much better than it seems like it should be. The deep purplish hue of red cabbage makes it great not only for adding a bit of color to your dishes, it also helps you get a well-rounded assortment of nutrients. And they’re just so cute!
No dish better showcases this lovely vegetable than coleslaw, and this Moroccan Mint Red Cabbage Slaw is the envy of all others. A hint of sweetness, a bit of zest, and a taste of spice, this dish really does have it all. A great lunchtime meal with nuts and hemp seeds for protein, as well as lemon, mint, cinnamon and a bit of curry powder to invigorate your senses. There’s a lot of goodness your body needs, and not much of anything it doesn’t!
The dressing is particularly nice. Cinnamon is an eccentric spice, and pairing it with maple syrup really accentuates the ambiguous character of this somehow sweet and savory bark. It would be interesting to see what other recipes this dressing could go with, though it’s hard to imagine it going better with anything than it does with this tasty Red Cabbage Slaw!
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.
