This recipe has a lot going on! A fully raw flax cracker style crust is topped with fresh zucchini and sesame butter hummus and plenty of veggie "pizza" fixings such as tomato, onion, and marinated mushrooms! The look is definitely reminiscent of pizza, the texture somewhat tostado-like. Whatever it is it sure is yummy!
Selene says, "After tasting this decadent and unbelievably easy-to-make fudge, you'll understand how a simple seed can be so highly revered. Enjoy this rich, chocolate-y fudge with a glass of cold hazelnut milk." Sesame seeds are an ancient food and have a host of benefits for us! Rich in calcium for our bones and teeth, high in protein and essential fats, grounding and warming to the body; they are revered for a reason!
This is an extremely decadent raw chocolate mousse cake, featuring surprisingly avocado! I was inspired by amazing cake maker Anna Middleton from Rawsome to bring avocado into fresh cakes such as this one - they are so creamy and versatile to use and really take on whatever flavour you put in, which is this case is chocolate!
This gorgeous and wholesale recipe was adapted by Golubka from a recipe found in The Sprouted Kitchen by Sara Forte. Instead of preparing the quinoa traditionally using heat, Golubka chose to sprout the quinoa and leave it in its raw state. The vibrant green of the collards contrasts perfectly with the ruby hue of fresh beets and vibrant orange of carrots. Don't forget to include thick slices of avocado, fresh sprouts, and a generous spread of miso-carrot sauce.
Even a treat like ice cream can become a highly nutritious superfood when you make it raw vegan! Black sesame seeds are especially high in minerals such as calcium, zinc, and copper and are amazing for the hair and skin.

This is a delicious gourmet recipe by Golubka that will tantalize those taste buds and give the body a hefty dose of nutrients from black sesame and fresh coconut!

These chocolatey fudge-like treats are actually a superb source of minerals calcium and magnesium (from tahini and cacao) that actually help to maintain relaxed muscles and a tension free state of mind! If you have Ashwagandha we definitely recommend putting the optional 1.5 tsp into this recipe, as you will get the added benefits of a wonderful adrenal support adaptogenic herb!
These chickpea salad wraps are healthy and light and taste way better than tuna salad! They can be made either raw with sprouted chickpeas or you may choose to steam them for a brief moment for digestibility. For a raw wrap use a big, fresh leaf of collard greens or chard, or you can easily use a sprouted whole grain tortilla or sandwich bread. This recipe combines an array of great flavors with ingredients such as dijon mustard, parsley, tahini, red wine vinegar and capers, and also has great texture variation through soft chickpeas and crunchy diced celery, apple, and bell pepper. A dash of kelp powder is added to give it that "of the sea" flavor similar to a tuna salad without the fish!
Smokey, salty, crispy, crunchy, and just downright delicious! This recipe is everything you could want from a kale chip and more! If you don't have a dehydrator do not despair. These can be made in your oven as well on the lowest setting with a drying time of 6-8 hours (just don't leave your house or go to sleep!) If you do have a dehydrator your kale chips will be crispy perfection after about 12 hours at 118 degrees or so. This yummy recipe by Sayward Rebhal was adapted from Renegadehealth.
Are you a hummus fan but don't do so well with legumes? While chickpeas make an awesome base for hummus they are not completely necessary if you have some fresh raw zucchini on hand! Hummus is such a mainstay in a healthy kitchen. It makes the perfect easy dip for crudités and crackers and even a healthy spread on sandwiches to replace things like mayonnaise. On a bed of mixed greens with tomato, cucumber, and olives it is simply divine! While zucchini replaces garbanzo beans, rich sesame tahini and cold pressed olive oil bring forth the richness and creaminess inherent to a hummus recipe well done. Lemon juice, salt and cumin spice help round out the flavor.
Thanks to Sarah Britton, we now have instructions for how to turn chlorella into a delicious creamy sweet drizzly sauce that can be added to desserts and breakfasts! Chlorella is a single celled blue green algae that is incredibly rich in all nutrients needed by the human body. It is nearly 60% protein by weight and contains high levels of beta carotene, iron, b vitamins, trace minerals and chlorophyll! It offers antioxidant capabilities, helps bind and remove heavy metals from the body, and can help elevate pH to a more alkaline level. We find that honey works best for this recipe but feel free to use your liquid raw sweetener of choice.

This recipe is like a flower blossom in the Spring-time - bursting with life and freshness! Totally yummy as a dip, or it can also be used as a spread in a sandwich with maybe some toasted rye or ezekiel bread, avocado, sprouts, tomato, and fresh baby lettuces. Or nix the bread and use it as a spread in a collard wrap burrito style. Scoop it up with all kinds of spring-a-licious veggies such as asparagus, carrots, and radishes! The humble pea is actually highly nutritious with ample amounts of vitamin C, K, manganese and even a fair amount of protein. Who knew!

This vegetable dish is heavy on the phytonutrients and antioxidant rich color pigment! Gena Hemshaw tells us that her diet is rich in fruits and vegetables from all colors of the rainbow, which is a very important aspect to a healthy balanced diet.

The brightly colored pigment of certain fruits and veggies is a smart signal from nature, attracting us to foods that are really good for our bodies.

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.
