If you follow the recipes we post here with any regularity, you already know how crazy we are for zucchini. You might know the famous capacity for this undervalued vegetable to become noodles. Well, lasagna is a sort of noodle. And so here we are! Zucchini Lasagna! This amazing lasagna is lasagna without wheat and without cheese! It’s basically a magic trick. But unlike magic tricks, even you can produce it! It’s remarkably simple. All you need is a food processor. A mandolin is helpful but not required!
t may not be blueberry season, but there’s all kinds of great things you can do with frozen blueberries! And what could be better than a guilt-free lemon blueberry parfait? The tangy lemon is a nice foil for the sweetness of the berries, and dates and agave round out the sweetness. All you need is a few minutes and a food processor to make this delicious, relatively healthful blueberry parfait.
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!
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?
