‘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 spicy green lime cilantro soup

I’m quite upset that it’s taken me so long to make this {delish!} soup. My dear raw foodie friend Brooke has been making this so regularly over the last 12 months that I feel like she’s cracking open coconuts every time I speak to…

spicy ‘salmon’ pâté

The ultimate lazy snack has really got to be crackers and dip doesn’t it? Open cupboard, grab crackers. Open fridge, grab dip. Dip + Eat = Instant gratification. So when dehydrating your own raw flax seed crackers from scratch a sudden craving for a savory…

fruit leathers

gourmet raw vegan marinara pasta

I had so many plans for my blog today that I had analysis paralysis. Then vegan.com posted a challenge on Facebook (well, for most if was probably a question, but I’m a competitive type of girl!) The question was ‘What’s your vegan specialty, the one…

green smoothie. old-school banana style

My beautiful, wonderful Brisbane flatmate Mel and I used to have banana smoothies a lot. We loved them… ripe bananas, honey, vanilla, milk and scoops and scoops of full fat ice cream. Being lactose-intolerant, they made me terribly bloated and gassy but I persisted…
