Vegan & Raw Food Recipes with Lemon

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.

Eggplant Pizza

Pizza is on the menu today.  We will be using sliced eggplant instead of a traditional crust. Feel free to use your favorite raw toppings.

Banana Fig Tart

Take advantage of the prime fig season to make a delicious banana fig tart, which tastes even better when shared with family and friends.

Raw Tacos with Cashew Cream

When we prepare raw food dishes from other cultures, it is usually the specific spices and herbs that help us achieve the flavors associated with each country’s traditional cuisine. Mexican dishes emphasize cilantro, cumin, lime, chili and jalapeno peppers, all of which are included in these tacos.

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”.

Berries and Poppy Seed Smoothie

Adding poppy seeds to your smoothie provides additional minerals, fiber and Omega-3s on top of summer berry goodness, the freshness of coconut water, and all the gifts the leafy greens have to offer.

Creamy Summer Squash Onion Soup

When the weather turns hot, we naturally gravitate towards lighter meals. Raw soups are a perfect solution – quick, satisfying, and nutritious. Use the whole squash for this soup, since its seeds are quite soft, and the peel contains many nutrients you cells will appreciate.

Spicy and Sweet Cabbage Salad

Spicy citrus dressing combined with summer vegetables makes it more than just a salad: it makes it an experience.  Light and refreshing, it’s also quick to make, especially if you can delegate the chore of chopping to your food processor.

Radish Greens Salad

Radish greens are super high in Vitamin C, calcium and phosphorus and happen to be my favorite greens!
