Vegan & Raw Food Recipes with Garlic

Pick-Me-Up Juice

The carrots and beets will wake up your taste buds in the morning, while the garlic and ginger will ensure you will be well protected from whatever “bug” happens to be floating around this time of year.

Vegetables with Tangy Tahini Dip

Natalya really outdid herself on this ambitious arrangement! Vegetable or fruit trays are a sure way to please the majority of people at a potluck. Add some simple carvings, and you just may be bringing an empty tray home, while feeling guilt-free about the food you brought to the party.

Cauliflower Parsnip Mashed “Potatoes”

A versatile side dish, mashed “potatoes” are great for the holidays or for any time of the year. Parsnips and cauliflower complement each other to create the raw version of this beloved holiday dish.

Creamy and Crunchy Sunchoke Salad

This crunchy salad tastes surprisingly similar to egg and potato salad, but it doesn’t contain either. Sunchokes, which are widely available in the fall and early winter, are a good raw substitute for potatoes, while cashews and turmeric bring the color and texture of eggs to this dish.

Sweet Potato Hashbrowns with Mushroom Gravy

Who would miss potatoes on a raw diet when they can make these sweet potato hashbrowns? Served with a side salad or simply on a bed of greens, they provide a satisfying meal reminiscent of those ole cooked times, minus the heavy feeling in the stomach and any sense of guilt from destroying the vital nutrients by high heat.

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.

Hummus Sandwich

Jennifer Cornbleet shared this recipe with us from her book “Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 People”.
