Raw Vegan Sattvic Dinner (with dessert too!)

Here's a simple, but absolutely delicious dinner menu for tonight.

First start making the dessert:

Raw Blackberry Parfait

Yes, we're starting with dessert.  Not eating it first, but blending it and putting it into the fridge to chill and set up so it's ready to eat after dinner.  You can even do this the night before.  Into the blender goes:
  • 1 pint of blackberries
  • 1 banana
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • pinch of cinnamon
The perfect light summer berry dessert.  Aren't luscious berries the best part of spring turning into summer??

Next up is a raw, vegan, sattvic salad dressing to drizzle on your favourite salad.  A lot of salad dressings use vinegar, which is fermented and a no-no if you're following the yogic way of eating.  This vinegar free dressing is easy to make with just a knife and a citrus juicer.

Sattvic Lemon Poppy seed Dressing

In a jar with a lid combine:
  • 2 lemons, freshly squeezed, no seeds plz!
  • 1/3 cup olive oil, cold pressed
  • drizzle of honey or agave, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon of poppy seeds
Secure the lid on tightly and shaky-shaky-shake until well combined.

This dressing was so good I almost forgot to take a picture before the whole jar was used up.

I put this lemony dressing on a high raw salad with fresh greens, carrots, cucumbers, 1/2 an avocado, tomatoes, broccoli and lightly stemmed brussel sprouts.  Ooooh how I love brussel sprouts, but not raw.

I hope you all enjoyed the sneak peak at my dinner tonight.
