Spicy BBQ RAWsh Kebobs

Raw vegan veggie kebabs are the bomb! When I discover a good thing, I try to find multiple ways to use it. For instance, last week I posted the Spicy BBQ Zucchini Chips and because of this outrageous BBQ Sauce, the chips were jaw-dropping outrageous! Between the two of us and friends, they don't hang around long! I thought it might be interesting to create a kebab, using the same BBQ sauce on veggies. Oh yeah!  I hope you enjoy this as much as we did!

Smokey Backyard Tomato Soup with Hot Red Pepper Sauce

Like many of you, I've got an over abundance of tomatoes springing out of our community garden and thought it would be nice to make a summer tomato soup with a bit of a twist from our usual. OH YUM!  Just a pinch of smoked paprika gives this soup such a deep, smokey tone, our taste buds were dancing with delight! I was so involved in prep, I am not sure I got all of the ingredients written down. Not to worry, I'll be making this again for sure. We loved it!

Onion Wrap

One of the very first foods I gave up when I started eating raw living food, was bread. I learned how the gluten acts like "GLUE" in the gut, sticking to it, fermenting, clogging, and wreaking havoc on my body. Here's a lovely way to enjoy a good wrap without the negative side effects.

Spicy Veg Beet Soup

I love making soup in my Vitamix. I had NO recipe prepared, but started pulling things out of the refrigerator and this is what I came up with.

Raw Tortilla Soup (Sans tortillas)

I came across this recipe, had all of the ingredients, except tortillas, and decided to make my first soup since I got the VitaBaby!  Instead of corn chips, we used corn kernels. Certainly not traditional dinner for Yom Kippur, but it worked for us. We added a yummy salad and threw in some of the leftover corn and cilantro, and dinner was divine!

RAWsh Kebobs

My sweetheart, W, was craving veggie kebobs the other night. I had seen a photo that someone posted recently with raw kebobs, so I figured I'd give it a shot. They came out very tasty. You can experiment with different spices and sauces. I'd let the veggies marinate overnight next time, but a very nice light dish. The pineapple really enhanced the flavors.

Spicy Red Tahini Sauce on Zucchini Noodles




Simple and delicious. This is a quick and easy meal to fix and so very tasty!!! I added some yummy "meat" balls, and it was the perfect combo. For more info on spiralizing noodles, please check out this post.

Green Marinara Sauce

Okay, we have green smoothies, so why not Green Marinara Sauce?  This lovely sauce is simple to prepare, and quite nutritious. Add as many greens as you like the taste of. I used Kale, parsley and basil, but feel free to experiment with dandelion, spinach, chard, etc.

Basic Marinara Sauce

This Marinara Sauce can be used on zucchini noodles, kelp noodles, pizza, veggies, meatloaf, etc. It's really quick and simple to prepare. Feel free to doctor it up with whatever spices you prefer!!! Make it zippy or mild.

Super Quick Asian "Noodles"Garden Salad

OHhhhhhh My Gosh! SO quick and So easy. The only problem with this, is that I did not make enough of it and want MORE! This is so light and refreshing. It's a great side salad for your SAD friends, or a main course. Cucumbers and summer squash make this a very cooling dish. Suggestion: Serve with Sunflower Seed Pate.

Creamy Tomato and Lime Dressing

It's summer and we LOVE LOVE LOVE salad. So, I'm on a salad dressing kick - finding ways to make each and every salad unique and ultra-satisfying. Very tasty and you can make this as zippy or mild as you like it!

Veggie Pulp Burgers With Wasabi Guacamole

Don't know what to do with all of that juice pulp? Here's an easy fix to that problem. Only thing missing in this photo are the broccoli sprouts, and maybe a slice of raw bread.  I plan on freezing anything that is left, which makes last minute dinner prep super easy. Just remove from freezer and let defrost, or pop in dehydrator. Cut up some fresh veggies, a nice salad, sprouts and you have a feast!

Red Hot Fire cRAWkers

These are somewhat similar to Veggie Crisps, but spicier, with a strong cumin/lime flavor. Great with salsa!!! Just like the Veggie Crisps, the flavor POPS in your mouth and really titillates your taste buds!! They are loaded with kale, celery tops, parsley, hemp, flax, and other nutrient dense foods. Unlike flax crackers, these are light, and can be spread thin to create a potato chip consistency, or  a little thicker, to make a crunchy cracker. I LOVE THESE!  Use your own veggie pulp and seasonings and create your own version.

StRAWganoff - Mushroom Stroganoff (Nutless)

Another really quick and easy throw-it-together meal. I LOVE zucchini noodles. There are so many creative ways to serve them. I was on my own for the week and didn't feel like fussing in the kitchen. I literally threw this meal together in a matter of minutes. It's a keeper!

Wild Mushroom and Spinach Quiche

Follow the steps one at a time and these are  not difficult to make. PATIENCE is an asset here, however, because they do require quite a bit of dehydration time. My little beauties are still dehydrating...so I'll let you know when they are done...

Primavera Frittata

This is so simple and quick to make and it serves up beautifully. Yummy enough to serve to your non-raw foodie friends. I used a large round cookie cutter as a mold, so you could make mini frittata as an appetizer that would look outstanding and totally impress your guests!

Zippy Veggie Crisps



This started as an experiment. I was actually trying to make a ravioli shell. Wellllllll, I overslept this morning, and came down to these crispy sweeties!!!! They are awesome, super thin, super crispy, and super satisfying. Love em!!!! These are going to be one of my new favorites!!!

Lasagna With Kelp Noodles and Marinara

This is great for a rainy, raw night. It's comforting, warming and satisfying and a meal you could easily serve to your SAD friends. While there are several parts that make up this dish, it can be prepared rather quickly with a little practice. The best part, there are plenty of leftovers for tomorrow night!!

Eggplant Lasagna Medley

A scrumptious medley using two variations of tender baby eggplant and three delicious types of mushrooms makes this dish quick and easy to prepare. It's very reminiscent of cooked food, and nice to gently warm on a cold winter day.

Spaghetti With Sausage And Peppers

It's so wonderful to be able to sit down, eat a plate of sausage, peppers, onions and mushrooms, over pasta, and not feel all stuffed and bloated afterward!!! And here's a sneaky way to add more greens that your kids and family won't suspect: toss some chopped kale into the blender with your marinara sauce. This tasty dish was served over a combination of kelp and spiralized zucchini.
