Sprouted Lentil Falafel

Falafel is a traditional middle eastern food that is typically made from garbanzo beans and fried.  It’s often served in a pita bread or on a salad with a tzatziki sauce (cucumber-yogurt sauce).  This raw version I created completely satisfies my greek food cravings and I can taste the aliveness in every bite. Falafel Patties 1/2 Medium Onion (about 1 cup once shredded in the food processor) 2-4 Carrots (about 1 cup once shredded in the food processor) 1 Garlic clove 1 Cup Sprouted Lentils (1/2 Cup dry lentils) 1 Cup Water 1/2 Cup Ground Flax Seeds 1/4-1/2 of an […]

Raw Caramel Dip

In search for a Halloween recipe I found this raw caramel dip that’s easy and yummy.  Tastes great with apples, especially tart ones like Granny Smith, and goes well mixed in a bowl of raw ice cream.

Raw Hummus for Pizza Cracker Topping

You could buy hummus at the store, but it wouldn’t be raw.  Garbanzo beans (the main ingredient of hummus) are cooked when made into hummus.  Sometimes I buy hummus, but it’s nice to have this completely raw and lighter fare version made with cashews. I tried out this yummy raw hummus recipe in order to have an excellent topping to our favorite pizza crackers.  Turns out it’s also a great dip for pea pods or other veggies and easy to customize with additional spices to your liking. Here’s the simple recipe: 4 Cups Cashews (soaked 4 hours and rinsed) 1/2 […]

Raw Creamy Spinach Dip

Fiesta Mole Soup & Dip! 1

It’s raining here today.  It’s almost like Fall arrived in a full-on run … no sauntering in this year. This cooler weather makes me especially appreciative of the Fiesta Mole Superfood mix.  The garlic, spicy, tomato blend is a nice contrast to the sweetness of Chocolate Bliss and even when it’s served as a cold soup it warms me up all over. Frankly, I tend to sprinkle the dry Fiesta Mole mix on everything I can think of.  Usually that’s on top of lettuce, avocados, and baked potatoes (yes I eat cooked food!). A friend of mine says she sprinkles […]
