High Vibration Raw White Chocolate 

The simpler the meal the better you feel. Truly this raw white chocolate recipe is one of my favourite and so quick and easy to whip up! All you need are 4 ingredients and you’ll have a very satisfying mouthful of creamy divine goodness! 

Play around and omit the vanilla bean with 1 teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon or orange juice instead.

These white chocolates do best stored in the freezer, otherwise they begin to get soft at room temp. You can also pour the mixture into a pan lined with parchment. Or soak energy bliss balls into the white chocolate mixture and you’ll have a coated treat of energy packed snacks or desserts. Happy creating!

EASY VEGAN CHOCOLATE

Do you know this urge of chocolate which kicks in out of nowhere sometimes? Thats the time where you’ll need this recipe! Quality vegan chocolate isn’t easy to find and it is always better to make it yourself anyway, so I thought, I’m gonna share my survival recipe kit with you, especially amazing during this unique time!

I often whip up this super delicious and easy chocolate recipes that is done in no time and can be enjoyed in only after 1-2 hours. 

So, why make chocolate at home when you can buy it at the store? Let me tell you.

Homemade is simply better.
It’s naturally sweetened.
No suspicious ingredients.
Vegan, gluten free, guaranteed.
It’s fun.

Trust me, homemade chocolate all the way. Plus, it’s customizable. I left mine pretty basic, adding only roasted peanuts, peanut butter and a little sea salt. But you could add dried fruit, other toasted nuts and butter, toasted coconut…really anything you’re craving.

Make this chocolate exactly how you like it! It’s the perfect base for experimenting while you are stuck at home.

Raw Vegan Tagliatelle Pasta alla Cashew Carbonara

Raw Food, RECIPES, VeganCrush | January 24, 2020 | By

RAW VEGETABLE PASTA

Who says you can’t enjoy a nice carbonara when you’re eating raw? You certainly can with this raw vegan Zucchini Tagliatelle alla Cashew Carbonara! Traditional Tagliatelle alla Carbonara is a cream sauce pasta, made with eggs, bacon, and fresh cracked pepper. But in this raw vegan Zucchini Tagliatelle alla Cashew Carbonara, we’ll be using soaked cashews for the cream sauce, kala namak salt for the eggs, and cherry tomato to replace bacon, and zucchini for the pasta.

A much healthier alternative without sacrificing any of the flavor. You’ll still be able to enjoy your beloved carbonara! I am using nutritional yeast in this recipe which is optional as it is not a raw ingredient but a great way to add the cheesy flavour in the carbonara sauce. 

We can all benefit from a raw meal at least once a day, whether it’s a salad or something like this. Adding a fresh, raw dish to your daily meal plan is good for your overall health in countless ways.

To create the pasta I am using a spiralizer but if you don’t have one you can also use a julienne peeler. I highly recommend getting a spiralizer though, as it is so much fun to make and you can create different thickness of pasta like spaghetti or even ramen consistency plus kids love making them and eating them too. What a sneaky yet fun way to get more veggies into them!

 

Raw Tagliatelle alla Cashew Carbonara

Course: Main Course, Salad
Cuisine: Italian
Keyword: raw vegan, gluten-free, vegetarian
Servings: 2 serving

Equipment

  • Spiralizer or Julienne Peeler

Ingredients

For the Pasta

  • 2 Zucchini
  • 100 g Sweet cherry tomato cut in a quarter

For the Sauce

  • 200 g Cashew nuts soaked overnight/drained
  • 1 Tbsp Nutritional yeast optional
  • 1 /2 tsp Kalan namak salt
  • 1/2 tsp Fresh cracked pepper
  • 1 Juice of 1/2 a lime
  • 3-5 Tbsp Filtered water
  • 1 Tbsp Black sesame seed meal

Instructions

For the Pasta

  • Wash and spiralize your zucchini using a Spiralizer or a Julienne Peeler. Place the zuchini pasta in a big bowl, sprinkle some kala namak salt and set aside. This process will help get rid of excess water. It takes about 5min until you start seeing water on the bottom of the bowl. Squeese the pasta gently to get rid of water as much as possible. That way the sauce will be easier absorbed from the zucchini and you wont end up with a watery pasta.

For the Sauce

  • In a blender add all the ingredients except the water and sesame meal and blend slowly. Add water ones at a time until soft and creamy.
  • Add the sauce and cherry tomato over the pasta and mix gently using your hands. Serve with sprinkles of black sesame meal and nutritional yeast and enjoy right away.

Spaghetti Ice Cream Vegan

Vegan Ice Cream

Dessert, RECIPES, VeganCrush | December 21, 2019 | By

Spaghetti Ice Cream is a popular ice cream dish in Germany “Spaghetti-EIS” made to look like a plate of spaghetti. Surely a fun and delicious surprise for every sweet dessert table or even as a unique Christmas treat.

In Germany they sell a special press for Spaghetti Ice Cream but you can also use a potato ricer which may take a little practice as you have to make sure your ice cream is soft enough to press through your potato ricer. 

You can strain the strawberry sauce to get a more refined finish. The cashew meal is to simulate the parmesan cheese but you can also use other ground nuts such as almond or macadamia nuts. 

Spaghetti Ice Cream Sundae Vegan

Course: Dessert
Keyword: gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian

Equipment

  • potato ricer
  • Blender

Ingredients

Sweet Condensed Milk

  • 500 g Samui Coconut Milk full fat, chilled
  • 125 g brown sugar

Vanilla Coconut Ice Cream

  • 750 g Samui Coconut Milk full fat, chilled
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 250 g condensed milk

Strawberry Sauce

  • 200 g fresh strawberries
  • 3 Tbsp orange juice fresh
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup

Instructions

  • For the condensed milk whisk together 500g coconut milk and 125g brown sugar in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk often and bring to a low simmer. Continue to simmer until milk has reduced by half, about 30 minutes. Let completely cool.
  • In a bowl add 750g coconut milk and whisk using a hand blender to thicken. Add the condensed coconut milk and vanilla extract. Whisk until well combined and transfer in a container. Place in the freezer and leave until ice cream has firmed up completely.
  • In a blender combine strawberry, orange juice and maple syrup and mix until nice and saucy. Keep in the fridge.
  • Ones the ice cream has completely chilled down let sit in room temperature to slightly soften. Fill a potato ricer with 3 scoops of ice cream. Hold ricer over a serving plate or bowl and squeeze ice cream through, swirling to create “spaghetti". Make sure your vanilla ice cream is soft enough to press through your potato ricer. If it is too soft it will melt, it needs to be just soft enough to squeeze through easily, and this may take a little practice. Sprinkle some cashew meal on top and enjoy immediately.

Gluten-Free Vegan Lentil Kofta

Vegetarian Kofta Recipe

RECIPES, VeganCrush | October 3, 2019 | By

Kofta is similar to falafel, except they’re made with lentils instead of chickpeas. I used U.S. pulses in this recipe combining red and brown lentil to create a similar texture and cosistency.  Combined with different spices and herbs it is then shaped into logs or patties and pan-fried.

Lentils are not only delicious but also a great source of health-promoting fibre and protein, which have strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties with potential cancer-cell inhibiting effects.

Enjoy with tzatziki dip or with warm grilled flat bread. You can also have it combined with salad in form of a wrap or in curries. They keep very well in the fridge or freezer and therefor are great for meal preparation. 

Vegan and Gluten-Free Lentil Kofta

Pan fried koftas bursting with fresh flavours served with a garlicky tofu dip. It’s so good and super delicious! Your body will thank you for it! It is perfect for your meal prep or just to spoil your friends and family.

Dairy-Free and Vegan Stroganoff

Vegan Stroganoff Recipe

My Food, RECIPES, VeganCrush | September 29, 2019 | By

How to make Dairy-Free Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff. This easy vegan stroganoff recipe will quickly become a new favorite pasta dish! It’s also a healthier version and perfect for meal preparation or as a comforting bundled up bowl of goodness!

A classic Stroganoff is a Russian dish traditionally centered around beef that is cooked in a sour cream based sauce and served over egg noodles. The sour cream is an important ingredient that gives Stroganoff it’s signature creamy tanginess. In this recipe I am replacing the sour cream with a dairy-free option that is coconut milk from Chef’s Choice. By simmering the coconut milk together with the seitan and mushrooms it will slowly thicken naturally into a very creamy smooth consistency with that tanginess to it by using yellow mustard and lime juice for seasoning. To replace the beef I am using homemade Seitan but you can also use tempeh, tofu or other meat substitute. 

If you enjoyed this recipe show some love by making a picture of your creation or my recipe video, post it on Instagram and don’t forget to tag me under @maricelsvegancrush and I will reshare your post.

A quick Cucumber Pickle Recipe

RECIPES, VeganCrush | September 10, 2019 | By

Pickles are very easy and great to prepare ahead of time plus they make a super delicious crunchy side dish for any type of meal for lunch, dinner or even a savory breakie! This cucumber recipe video will get you covered. 

To pickle something, you simply need to soak the vegetables in a vinegar brine. My brine calls for water, vinegar, mustard seeds (optional) and salt, and you let the cucumbers rest in the brine until you’re ready to eat them. Letting them sit longer helps the flavors develop more, so an overnight soak is ideal, but they’re also fine to eat right away!

Don’t limit yourself to pickled cucumbers, use this recipe with just about any vegetable. You can use the recipe for okra, bell peppers, and more. Adjust the spices and be creative because there are so many possibilities.

How to make black garlic?

diy, recipe, method, explanation, black garlic

RECIPES, VeganCrush | June 30, 2019 | By

Black garlic is created by a careful ageing process, which causes the sugars and amino acids to react, resulting in it’s dark pigment.

It has many health benefits that range from it’s strong antioxidant nature to its potential role in cancer treatment. Recent tests scientists show that chemicals in the bulb can help to reduce fatigue from exercise and even improve physical strength.

It is used in various dishes and also as a probiotic drink or medicine to cure or strengthen immune system.

The taste is deeply intense and reminds me of dried figs with a hint of tamarind or balsamic vinegar. I love to add black garlic to enhance dishes like salads, cheese platter, soups or bowls like this!

The best thing -> this magical black beauty is suuuper easy to create! Check out the recipe below. A small warning, you will have that delicious garlic smell wafting in your kitchen for the entire coking process. So be prepared to have your tummy grumbling. 

education purpose, culinary, recipe

RECIPE:

Start out with 6 whole unpealed garlic bulbs. Give them a good rinse and let them dry overnight.  Next, place them in a rice cooker on “keep warm” setting. Let them sit there uninterrupted for 2-3 weeks.

Check the rice cooker occasionally if “keep warm” setting is still on and that it hasn’t switched off.

Store in airtight container and keep up to 3 month.
