Vegan & Raw Food Recipes with Ginger Root

Ginger Kale Salad

This salad is a nutritional powerhouse, featuring yet another way to load up on kale.

Shiitaki Lo Mein Zucchini Noodles

“Lo Mein” is translated from Chinese as “stirred noodles”. These zucchini ribbon noodles are stirred alright, but don’t expect them to look or taste like cooked. The analogy to the classical Chinese lo mein is created by the ginger flavor, sesame seeds, and taste and texture of shiitaki mushrooms.

Creamy Leek Soup

In many parts of the country this soup, served slightly warm, will be very appropriate at this time of the year.  Leftover soup can also double as a dip or salad dressing.

Veggie Wraps with Plum Ginger Sauce

Fresh plums make a great base for sauce or salad dressing. Their sweet and lightly sour taste complements any neutral-flavor fruits and veggies.

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.

Veggie Kebabs in Pineapple Spice Marinade

Kebabs are a fun way to eat vegetables for both kids and kids-at-heart. You can customize the vegetable selection based on your family’s preferences and seasonal availability.

Zesty Green Soup with Toppings

Versatile soup from Paige K. Rideout.

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.

Pacific Breeze Juice

The taste of papaya merges with the taste of orange and beet root to pack an incredible amount of enzymes, vitamins, and antioxidants into this powerful juice.
