These “tacos” are easy to make, and they don’t take very much time to put together. They’re pretty versatile, so if you don’t have an ingredient, such as one of the spices, they’ll still be delicious. The different components can be made ahead of time and put together in the evening, so they’re a perfect meal for a busy weeknight, and since they don’t require any heat to cook. Enjoy them with tortilla chips, cut vegetables, or with a salad.
Chili and cacao are a winning and probably ancient combination. These delicious no-bake brownies have that hint of Aztec flavor to give them just a little bit more character! They should keep for about a week in the refrigerator.
It’s Monday, and Mondays call for simple, rewarding recipes. What better way to deal with Monday than with some spicy, garlic-y chili cheese fries? Raw and vegan, of course! Move over potatoes, there’s a new fry in town, and its name is jicama.
These certainly aren’t your every day fries (after all, they aren’t even fried). But they certainly do the job well. The jicama takes the place of potatoes, while nutritional yeast takes over for cheese. Of course, you can adjust the spices and herbs to your heart’s content, making it more or less spicy as is your discretion.
Great for snacking and for sharing. And, unlike conventional fries, these chili cheese fries will actually nourish you, rather than punish you!
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.
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?
