Almond Butter Cookies – Raw!

I am so proud of these! I have been yearning for the recipe book written by the team who brought us Pure Food & Wine which, as you know, is one of my favorite restaurants in New York City. Well, the book retails at $37.50 – way too much for the likes of me- but […]

Roasted Garlicky Chickpeas

I am so excited about these! They are so easy to make, and they are deliciously healthy snacks. You can experiment with different seasonings, and you may end up having to double the recipe. Ingredients: 1 15oz tin,  chickpeas – organic, if you like (you can pick up four cans relatively cheaply at vitacost) sea […]

Delicious Tomatillo Salsa

I can’t believe how delicious this salsa is! The Mexican farmer at our local farmer’s market gave me this recipe. I made them with his tomatillos and jalapeños. (Ooh, vicar) Ingredients: 4 medium tomatillos (more if smaller), leaves removed. 1 Serrano chili, stalk removed 1 small red onion, peeled 1 garlic clove 1 large handful […]

Barbara Bush aka Baba Ganoush

My daughter calls this, ‘Babara Bush.’ Apologies to my American counterparts. ‘Aubergine’ sounds much more romantic, to me, than ‘eggplant.’ If you have a barbeque, it is best to grill them but if you are a New Yorker, like me, you’ll probably have to use your grill or broiler. The man who runs our local […]

Cashewnut Shrimp

Day 60: Okay, I don’t like shrimp but I love these. The name put me off for ages, but they are really delicious. I wasn’t sure if I’d have enough left for the photo, I was sucking them down! They are from the wonderful Raw Food for Everyone by Alissa Cohen. Her restaurant, Grezzo, is […]

Cashew Nut Cream ‘Cheese’

Day 57: Okay, it’s not cheese. Not in any remote way. But it is flavourful, for sure. Much more than your average cream cheese. (It’s very hard to take a photo of this and make it look sexy. I did my best) This is adapted from Kris Carr’s amazing Crazy Sexy Kitchen. I am the […]

Raw Chocolate with Crushed Almonds

Day 55: Yes! I am so happy. I made raw chocolate. Can’t quite believe it. I even added almonds. I’m in heaven. Raw cacao is so good for you, too, along with the coconut butter, so I might call this virtuous chocolate. What could be better? Ingredients: 1 cup raw cacao 1 Tbs raw coconut […]

Gluten-Free Italian Rosemary Bread

Day 51: I had never associated chickpea flour with anything other than chapatis, so I am delighted to find this Italian bread dish. You can use it for making pizzas, too, and I probably will at some point. If my avocados had been ripe enough, I would have included a juicy guacamole with this dish,  […]

Sun-Dried Tomato Creamy

Day 48: I have found raw food to be surprisingly flavourful and filling at the same time, and this dish is no exception. It is delish!  I can’t, yet, bring myself to call these nut-based pastes ‘cheese’ or ‘cream cheese’ but I ‘paste’ sounds so pedestrian. So, I am experimenting with ‘creamy.’ I know. If […]
