Vegan & Raw Food Recipes with Sunflower Seeds

Cucumber Rolls with Garlicky Beets Filling

An eye-catching appetizer for a potluck or just for snacking. Easy way to eat beets, which are especially good for cleansing at this time of the year.

Tzatziki

Inspired by my recent travels, the traditional Greek appetizer offered here has been adapted for the raw food diet. It is not only delicious, but versatile as well: eat as a meal, spread on crackers, or use as a veggie dip.

Raw Vegan Sushi with Spicy Mustard Sauce

Enjoy the familiar taste of sushi minus the cooked rice. Our raw sushi is just as delicious as the traditional version, and a little practice will make you into a perfect sushi roller in no time.

Festive Waldorf Salad

Since the late 1800s, when this salad was first made at the Waldorf Hotel in New York City, it has gone through many transformations. The core ingredients, however, did manage to survive over the years. This hearty salad is easily adaptable for those living on raw foods by replacing the traditional mayonnaise-based dressing with some version of a raw nut-based mayo.

Raw Stuffing

Gone are the days when the only place you would find the stuffing was inside a roasted bird. Now it gets a bowl of its own on the holiday table and we avoid the bird entirely. Here’s one way to prepare your stuffing to fit your raw lifestyle.

Stuffed Mini Peppers

Colorful mini bell peppers take the central stage in this dish. This versatile dish is a complete meal in itself, and takes little time to put together. Soak, blend, stuff – and you have lunch to take to work with you.

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.

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!
