An elegant and ultra fresh recipe by Christina Ross of Love-Fed.com that makes for a perfect veg-filled snack or appetizer. There are so many ways to enjoy raw vegetables beyond simply eating a salad and this recipe is a fine example of this!

Not only is it a relatively simple and easy dish to execute, you have options to make it as an appetizer, main course, or even finger food -- it all depends on the size of your tart crust. If you'd rather not make a tart you can simply enjoy the tender/wilted veggies alone (they're certainly tasty enough to do so) and pair them with a sauce or dressing of your choosing.
Who doesn't like making up names for raw recipes? I sure enjoy it ... almost as much as I like fruit noodles. Froodles were inevitable.
I've been wanting to try kohlrabi for a while now, aware of its pretty presence in the produce isle. I finally got around to it this week. No searching required, it was right there in front of me at the store, waiting.
For those who have never tried it, kohlrabi is a mild tasting crunchy vegetable, a sort of cross between a cabbage and turnip in taste. I've also been on the lookout for purple kohlrabi, which is amazing in its colour, but no luck so far. It works well raw in salads or roasted/steamed for a side dish. Very low in calories and rich in nutrients, a perfect gift of nature.
Look for smaller kohlrabi, about apple sized - they tend to be the juiciest. Don't throw away the leaves, utilize them - chopped and quickly roasted with garlic, sauteed, or added raw to your salad, morning juice or green smoothie.
In this salad, the crunch of kohlrabi, apple, and summer root veggies combines nicely with the creaminess of avocado and the sunny taste of citrus dressing. It would work well both as a side dish or a light meal, if adjusted to a bigger portion.
I rushed home tonight to whip up this raw version of the Macro bowl I had from Aux Vivres last week, so I could share the yummy goodness with all ya’ll before the weekend. You can skip the bowl, but I wouldn’t skip the sauce. I said it before and I’ll say it again – it’s ridic.
Lasagna is one of those foods that is actually 10X better raw than cooked! This is because you still get that lovely blend of rich sauces and savory spices combined with a soft noodle texture but everything tastes so much fresher, richer, and more vibrant! The fresh herbs explode on the palette, and even after eating a nice sized helping you wont feel weighed down and sluggish. In this recipe by Tess Masters thinly sliced zucchini noodle "sheets" synergize with a dense layer of flavorful sun dried tomato and herb sauce, potent basil macadamia nut pesto and a spicy, cilantro infused raw vegan ricotta cheese. You wont turn down seconds with this recipe!
Sarah Britton was a bit skeptical to give a traditionally cooked recipe a raw makeover, but we're glad she decided to take the plunge because the outcome is absolutely delicious! Rich, creamy pine nut "cheese" in between thinly sliced light, crispy beet root. Finish the recipe off with a light drizzle of pesto oil, and serve them atop a bed of fresh micro greens or arugula. The meal is complete! You can use any variety of beets for this recipe, including striped, red, or yellow. Beets are highly detoxifying and are a great addition to your daily diet for gentle liver support.
Butternut squash is a fruit that can be roasted and toasted and also be puréed (to make a soup) or mashed into soups, casseroles, breads, and muffinss, but this time it's going to be shaved. This pasts will be seved with a simple tossed salad and a slightly sweet dressing.
Don't be intimidated, making your own homemade sauerkraut is easier than it may seem and you'll soon become an expert. A great way to consume fermented veggies is with fresh avocado and a bit of sea salt. So good, and, so good for you. Enjoy!
This recipe is a beautiful toss of Italian herbs and spices with salty olives and a sprinkle of hemp seed. The artichokes can also be lightly steamed for a softer texture.
A flavor packed salad using any variety of tender micro greens, crisp apples, and fresh succulent fennel, lightly dressed with hemp and olive oils.
A beautiful and colorful start to a meal. Beets lend such a vibrant, deep red color to this dish, and look very festive when paired with the green parsley pumpkin seed pesto.
At first I thought, “ravioli!” Which was then immediately followed by, “boring!” So instead, I went for a mix between lasagna and ravioli – A ravioli stack. Easy, but elegant. What more could a girl want!?
