Raw Snack Recipes

Baba Ghanoush

The Middle Eastern dip and spread Baba Ghanoush is traditionally made with baked or roasted eggplant, garlic and olive oil. Many countries have their own variations of this dish. Here’s the raw food version, with the eggplant uncooked, of course.

Veggie Sticks with Marinara Sauce

Here’s another way to use up the pulp left over from your morning juicing. Make it a kid-friendly meal, too, by shaping the veggie sticks into fun shapes or letters and numbers. You’ll be surprised how quickly the food will disappear at mealtime!

Spicy Collard Greens Vegetable “Sushi”

Dark leafy greens are a very important piece of a well-balanced raw food diet due to their un-paralleled nutritional profile. This appetizer offers a pleasant way to consume them.

Stuffed Crepes with Cashew Vanilla Cream and Berry Sauce

These crepes take some time to prepare but the taste is heavenly!

Cilantro Pesto

Serve this versatile pesto with dehydrated crackers, slices of cucumber, zucchini, carrot sticks and celery stalks, or use as a sauce for zucchini spaghetti.

Stuffed Mushrooms

These petite stuffed mushrooms can be served as an appetizer, or become part of the main course when accompanied by a salad. Either way, they are filling and delicious.

Sweet Sesame Crackers

Here’s the way to make the famous sesame crunch candy much healthier – make them yourself and make them raw!

Buckwheat Crisp Breads

Russian Pickled Tomatoes

This is an old favorite from my motherland. These raw cultured vegetables can be a good addition to your menu as you are transitioning to the raw food diet. The enzymes in cultured vegetables also help digest other foods eaten with them. And best of all: it’s very easy to make and you will not have to use your stove!
