There’s so many things you can do with zucchini. We’ve already had plenty to say about the wondrous versatility of this modest little squash. So let’s focus instead on this amazing persimmon dressing!
If you’ve never tasted a well-ripened persimmon, then you simply don’t know what you’re missing. If tasted before they have had a chance to get really, really ripe — we’re talking almost fermented, even — persimmon is aggressively astringent and unpleasant. But as the fruit matures and the tannin levels are reduced, it becomes one of the sweetest and most incredible tasting fruits you’ll find anywhere. But it does take patience! You have to let the persimmon ripen until it becomes so soft it is squishy. Which makes it ideal for dressings!
As always, ginger provides a lovely spicy foil for the sweetness of the persimmon dressing. Give it a try!
Looking for something to do with all those pumpkin seeds you just scooped out of your jack-o-lantern? Well how about use them as a garnish on a delicious salad as colorful as autumn itself?
This slaw isn’t fermented, but that means you can whip it up easily in just a few minutes without any preparation. However, if you like to make your own “real” coleslaw, you can substitute that for the 2 cups of cabbage for an even tangier rainbow slaw!
What’s the difference between a fruit and a vegetable? Some say that a fruit contains seeds. But then peppers, cucumbers and squash are fruit… Does that mean they aren’t vegetables? What is a vegetable, anyways? Are fruits just a type of vegetable?
Whatever the answers to those questions, you can be sure that these tacos are full of fruits and vegetables. And a whole lot more than just kale and pineapple! The taco shells are jicamas! And inside the tacos you’ll find zucchini, tomatoes onion and strawberries. These definitely aren’t your average tacos. They are, in fact, much much better.
But no tacos would be complete without a zesty sauce! These ones come with their own special lime and cilantro dressing. A super fun recipe, and a way to enjoy raw vegan tacos that are gluten free!
For dessert… more tacos?

Well folks, it’s no secret that it’s been a hot summer. Even the TV weather people are finally starting to seem a little bit less excited by another day of record-setting heat. If you’re looking to stay cool on the outside, then you might as well get cool on the inside!
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!
Now here’s an interesting idea. If you’ve ever made a puree of garlic to keep in your fridge to make your life easier down the road, then this concept will be right up your alley!
This recipe is really sort of a hack or shortcut for other recipes. Maybe you’re a big fan of green smoothies. Or maybe you’ve got a little veggie garden and end up having more kale and greens than you know what to do with. Well, now you know! Turn those lovely greens into kale cubes, and you can use them later for your next smoothie or soup!
Coconut water is great if you intend to use your kale cubes for smoothies. If you have a more savory use for them in mind, you might be better off using regular water. Or maybe not!
A simple rule of thumb to make sure you’re getting a broad range of healthy nutrients is to make sure you’re eating lots of fruits and veggies of different colors. Lots of the disease-fighting and health-promoting properties of plants are related to the different compounds that produce the different colors.
Often times, the deeper the color of fresh whole foods, the richer they are in nutrients. So we should all try to keep our lives full of color. And what better way than by drinking it all up!
This Rainbow Juice takes all that to heart, and while it may look green once it’s in the cup, it’s made from a real rainbow of delicious fruits and veggies. This juice is full of antioxidants, anti-inflammatories, and all sorts of vitamins and minerals.
And it’s super tasty. With the spiciness coming from the jalapeño, ginger and cilantro, the kiwi adds some sweetness, and of course the tomato brings the umami. Truly well-balanced, this Rainbow Juice makes a great snack any time of day.
