Vegan & Raw Food Recipes with Lemon

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.

American Flag Raw Cake

Summer berries are here, and so is Independence Day! You won’t feel guilty bringing this type of cake to the 4th of July potluck: it’s raw, sugar-free and abundant in berries.

Russian-Style Layered Mushroom Salad

Tired of traditional salads? This recipe puts a whole new spin on the salad theme. The idea for this festive layered salad comes from Russian cuisine.

Traditional Russian salad recipes often include herring, boiled potatoes and mayonnaise. But this healthy variation is chock full of raw goodness. Instead of cooking vegetables, use them in their raw state. Let mushrooms be the substitute for herring and have the avocados stand in for potatoes—more tastily, too! No mayo, either—instead, a nut-based dressing.

A decided improvement in taste and nutrition. A real novelty, too. Your party guests will never have seen or tasted this one! Guaranteed to impress.

Summer Vegetable Confetti Soup

Add a splash of color with vegetables to this cool creamy soup, and you’ll be surprised to find that your mood will brighten up as well.

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.

Mango Coconut Parfait

Beautiful dessert from Heather Pace at www.sweetlyraw.com.

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.

Radish Greens Salad

Radish leaves make an excellent addition to a salad.

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.
