avocado & crackers

Every time I make avocado on crackers I think about posting a blog on it, then convince myself it’s so simple that it’s not worth the effort.  But I think the time has come to share it anyway as I know it’s always good…

raw vegan sour cream

I realized last night that I owe you a recipe for raw vegan sour cream for my baked butternut squash and red potato bisque recipe! This is also fabulous with raw vegan chili, which makes sense given that this and the chili recipe are…

cheddar cheeze sauce

I used to love cheese sauce. Love with a capital L… with cauliflower, with lasagna, with a spoon and with tuna baked on a croissant topped with paprika. My brother was my cheese sauce partner in crime. The best bonding we ever did as…

raw falafel, no beans!

I love these falafel patties so they were the perfect thing to make yesterday to kick start a week of all raw food – something I haven’t done for an embarrassingly long time, and definitely something I need to do more often – I miss it…

raw vegan squash chips

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…

raw vegan avocado ‘skins’

two minute guacamole

I’m working from home today which inevitably means that I’ll spend all day eating, which is not great for the progress of my Invisalign, but what can you do?? Staring into the fridge, I spotted a ripe avocado, a few grape tomatoes, some cilantro, onion and…

raw vegan chili

Not so long ago, I was raving about Herbavoracious’ super-delicious (un-raw) vegan chili to cater to my cooked food cravings… well now I’m happy to say I can rave about a raw vegan chili recipe to the same extent –  Matthew Kenney has done it…
