I’m having a juicy week…

I’m tempted to explain my falling of the raw (and yes, even vegan) wagon on my Hawaiian vacation but if I’m being entirely honest it started before that and did not stop on my return to Boston last weekend. I have been eating cooked…

‘meaty’ raw burritos

I learnt something new at work yesterday; “calling an audible”. For those of you who don’t follow American football in any detail (I’m trying, but as an Australian I still like rugby union), this means the quarterback (the star of the game and typically…

raw vegan chili rose pasta sauce

I’m sorry I keep harping on about my CSA deliveries but it’s the best thing ever – I love coming home on Thursday nights with my green bag of goodies! Tonight I got home a bit before 8pm, hungry. I decided to make pasta…

community supported agriculture and salads

Having just prepared another fresh, vibrant salad for my lunch today, using only goodies my local farmer Bob Marshall (Marshall’s Fenway Farm Stand) puts in my weekly CSA pack (Community Supported Agriculture), I had to share just how wonderful I think the concept is…

bean-free raw hummus

I think I have got to the root of my problem with raw vegan hummus… we still want to call it hummus! I have tried lots of variations to get something close to the ‘real’ thing, with and without garbanzo beans and it’s just…

chunky chili brownies

space   Having decided I need (a little) more chocolate in my life, brownies seemed to be a logical place to start. I looked through my recipe books and couldn’t find anything without cups and cups of agave or maple syrup, so having also decided I…

raw vegan avocado ‘skins’

I first had Alissa Cohen’s avocado skins at her raw restaurant in Boston, Grezzo. I fell in love with them and so did my omnivore boyfriend, so I was really excited when she released her latest recipe book Raw Food For Everyone, especially since it closely followed…
