Raw Vegan Pepper Creamy Walnut Pesto

Raw Food, Stuff I Make | April 23, 2016 | By

This Raw Vegan Creamy Walnut Pesto is made with a handful of clean ingredients and is ready in just minutes. It has the sweetness from the Pepper and a little spice from the cayenne pepper. And, it can be made in your food processor faster than the time it takes for the pasta. You’ll want to get yourself a spiralizer to make the pasta noodles – otherwise it’s way too much work and you’ll just want to boil noodles instead.  With a spiralizer you get perfect veggie noodles and a lot of fun making them.

Raw Chocolate Pudding

Vegan Crush

Dessert, Raw Food, Stuff I Make | March 19, 2016 | By

This raw chocolate pudding will make your heart skip a beat! I expect that kids will love this recipe too. The great thing about this pudding – besides its immensely rich texture and chocolate flavor – is that it’s naturally sweetened with dates. Of course, you can substitute whatever other natural sweetener you prefer – maple syrup and agave being ideal.

It’s also customizable. If you prefer an intense chocolate flavor, add less sweetener. If you prefer it thinner, thicker just adjust the almond milk as desired. And if you’re like me, you like your pudding on the sweeter side and will prefer adding more!! It’s extremely forgiving and flexible in this way.

Raw Pumpkin Carrot Pasta with Beetroot Sauce

Vegan Crush

Raw Food, Stuff I Make | February 26, 2016 | By

This Raw Pumpkin Carrot Pasta with Beetroot Sauce is absolutely heaven! I just created this amazing sauce which is so good that I ate the remaining part all by itself! I didn’t use salt in this dish cause I really try to avoid sodium as much as I can and I replace it mostly with fresh lemon juice which just gives me the right taste! I really hope you enjoy this dish as much as I did. The plate was so beautiful that I hesitated to take the first bite haha.. Well but someone has to do it right. 🙂

Ingredients
  1. For the Pasta
  2. 1 pumpkin (I used butternut squash)
  3. 1 carrot
  4. For the Sauce
  5. 1/3 cup beetroot (cut in cubes)
  6. 1/3 cup walnuts
  7. 1/3 cup hemp seeds
  8. 1/3 cup flax seed meal
  9. 1/4 cup macadamia nuts
  10. 2 tbsp maple sirup
  11. 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  12. 1/4 cup spring onion (use the green part)
  13. 1/3 cup water
Instructions
  1. Using your spiral slicer, make noodles out of all of the pumpkin and carrots. It will be more difficult to make the noodles once there is only a few inches of pumpkin and carrot left, so you can grate what’s left of the carrot. Place all pumpkin carrot noodles into a beautiful large serving bowl.
  2. Now combine all dry ingredients in a food processor and blend for 1 minute. Sprinkle some of it on the pasta.
  3. Than add the wet ingredients and blend all together until smooth and creamy. Give it a try and adjust sweetness and lemon juice as well as spring onions as you like.
  4. Add water until you have the perfect consistency for the pasta.
  5. Sprinkle some spring onions on top and there you go living food right on your plate enjoy!!
Notes
  1. If you don't have a spiral slicer, you can simply grate the carrots with a box grater to make this recipe. 😀
