RawMarkable Raw Vegan Food

Here are some of the delish dishes I've had these past few days ...

Raw Serve (raw vegan ice "cream")

I've been seeing this super easy and quick raw ice "cream" on a lot of raw blogs. Simply toss a few frozen bananas in the food processor and blend until it looks like soft serve ice cream. Simple eh? To prevent it from melting too fast, serve in a ceramic bowl that has been chilled in the freezer.

Pistachio Raw Serve

Same as above, but I added a cut up pistachio LARAbar ... so many possibilities!

Frothy Raw Citrus Zing Juice

I lugged out the juicer yesterday because I had some citrus fruit that needed to be used up quickly. I love how frothy the drink came out, and it made my kitchen smell citrus-y for hours! Here's what went in the juicer: 4 small oranges, 1 large grapefruit and 1/4 inch piece of fresh ginger (that's the zing part).

Raw Macadamia Dill Dressing (recipe from Spark Recipes)

Remember the biodynamic dill that I made into a raw sauce? This is a similar sauce, but uses oh-so delicious macadamia nuts. I served it on top of a baby spinach salad with cucumber, red bell pepper, radishes, carrots and 1/2 avocado.
  • 1.5 cups nuts (cashew, macadamia, or combo), soaked 1-2 hours then rinsed & drained)
  • 1-1.5 cups water depending if you want a dip or a dressing
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (juice from half a lemon)
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil (or another raw oil)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 teaspoons onion
  • 1 large handful of fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil, dried
Mix everything in a blender until smooth and creamy. Add more dill if desired. The sauce will keep in the fridge for several days.

Go Ahead and Bragg Raw Noodles

This is another super quick and easy lunch that makes eating more raw dishes soooOoo easy. Simply add a dash of liquid Bragg's, dash of salt and a swirl of cold pressed sesame oil to a bowl of zuke noodles. Mix and enjoy.

You're on the banana n'ice cream bandwagon, too. Cool. Enjoy the ride. I sure am.

P.S. Love the pistachio bits :-)

Once you get started on the raw ice cream it's hard to stop!! I still have to try the one you blogged about (chocolate, olive oil & salt). Still sounds a little strange to me, but I'm willing to try it. I'll post the results when I try it ^_^
