What's not to love about Japanese Maki Rolls?! They are so delicious, and have the perfect balance of "light yet filling". Create these raw vegan maki rolls with your partner, a friend, or even your children. We love the pop of contrasting color from all of the fresh vegetables. In this recipe Jenné Claiborne uses bell pepper, purple cabbage, avocado, pickled ginger, red lentils and sprouted quinoa inside of her nori sheets. Sprouted quinoa is a great source of alkaline forming protein, is very easy to digest and assimilate, and still retains those life giving enzymes and phyto-nutrients that would otherwise be destroyed with cooking. Check out Jenné's other recipe how to for sprouting quinoa.
Achieving the perfect salad can take a bit of creative flare. The fantastic thing about salad creation is that no two salads ever need be exactly the same. There are a plethora of different ingredients to mix up flavor and texture, and we have more access these days to different fruits and vegetables than ever before. This recipe is the creation of Gena Hemshaw, and she got her inspiration from Aimee Follette’s Bella Divine salad at Sun In Boom. Gena combines fresh, finely minced kale and cabbage with cultured vegetables, a light tahini dressing, dulse seaweed, a dash of ginger and Braggs or shoyu, and of course every salads must have ingredient- avocado. With the mouth watering close up of creamy avocado slices it's hard to not want this salad immediately! Whip up a large batch for dinner tonight and eat the leftovers for lunch tomorrow after the dressing has marinated with the kale.
This is a rawsome recipe from Elenor Earthsprout for a cleansing and nourishing Pad Thai that is light enough to be eaten all summer long even when the hot weather hits. This recipe uses fresh spiralized daikon radish combined with packaged kelp noodles for variation of texture. Daikon is used extensively in Asian cuisine but often gets overlooked in the West. It is juicier and milder in flavor to its red radish counterpart yet still contains valuable nutrients such as the mineral sulphur. The noodles are covered in a light sauce that combines the traditional Thai flavors of coconut, cilantro, spring onion, garlic and lime. Delish any day of the week!
Savory and saucy this dish uses both kelp and zucchini noodles and is dressed up with an Asian inspired creamy, spicy macadamia avocado sauce. The addition of snow peas, sliced broccoli and asparagus add a nice seasonal touch to this recipe. Everything here is raw aside from the roasted bell peppers which can be omitted if you wish (just add in a bit more fresh bell peppers). Another option would be to use a few tsp of chipotle pepper seasoning for a nice robust smoky flavor. Raw noodle dishes are always a hit because they are so easy to prepare and can be made in such a variety of ways. Zucchini and kelp noodles are both very neutral in flavor and will take on the dynamic flavors of any sauce.

Learning to make a really great raw paté is a useful skill to have when it comes to raw food preparation. Patés are so versatile and can be added to salads to transform them into a more filling meal. They also work great as a dip for veggie crudité or flax crackers, or as a sticky spread to use in place of rice in raw sushi wraps. This particular recipe is amazing on it's own and also works as a great base recipe, the options really are endless as far as what can be added. You can easily add different spices and fresh herbs to reinvent things and create new flavors. Soaking your seeds before hand makes the paté much more digestible and also gives it a fluffier, softer consistency.

I am a confirmed Irish Moss addict - I've been eating it nearly every day since we first got it. This is my favourite way to prepare it - it's light and creamy and reminds me of a certain dessert I used to eat as a child. Am working on a butterscotch flavour...
This is my favourite lunch right now. Spread on a nori sheet and rammed with alfalfa sprouts, you couldn't fit anymore nutrition in each bite.
