Vegan & Raw Food Recipes with Garlic

Lentil Patties with Cucumber Dill Sauce

These two recipes are rather versatile. Try crackers or “meat” balls instead of patties. Use the sauce as a salad dressing, dip for crackers and crudités, or as a sauce for lettuce wraps.

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.

Nick’s Salad

My husband, Nick, has been making this salad for us on a daily basis for many years, and I still love it! I came up with the dressing just last month, and I think it really makes a great combination. The trick to this salad is to mince all the ingredients as finely as possible. This mixes the flavors in the best way.

Carrot Falafel Wraps with Sweet Tahini Dressing

These wraps come together in a matter of minutes, and these falafel won’t weigh you down and make you feel awful.

Healthy Whole Wheat Sandwich

If you feel you prefer something substantial for your meal, there is always a sandwich to fill that need – and yes, you can make it raw!

Buckwheat Crisp Breads

Here’s the way to use up the pulp left over from your morning green juice by using it to prepare crisp breads. Sharing it with the microorganisms in your compost pile is the second best option.

Savory Guacamole Shake

A savory shake for guacamole lovers. It’s thick and filling enough to make a great summer lunch.

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!
