Oatmeal Coconut Pecan Cookies

Recently I made a mistake online purchase for oats. I thought I was buying one single tub of oats for our office. Turns out it was several tubs in one, and I ended up with 5 pounds of oats. What are you supposed to do with 5 pounds of oats? Well, start making cookies, for…

Quinoa Chickpea Burgers

Well, after 2 unsuccessful attempts at making vegan burgers, I finally mastered it! And I couldn’t say what was the key ingredient, though I did learn that adding too many chunky vegetables in them will cause the burgers to fall apart easier. So for this, I will add some optional additions to the burgers, but…

Mango Banana Cilantro Lime Smoothie

Much like my Mango Cilantro Lime Smoothie, this green smoothie has a fresh, refreshing, summer taste, full of summer herbs and fruit. My initial intent was to make a mango lime smoothie, but I thought to add a couple additions to the usual mix to see how it would come out, and the result was…

Peach Carrot Broccoli Smoothie

Remember that Pumpkin Seed Nut Milk I made awhile back? Well, turns out that milk is a GREAT smoothie milk! Not only is it creamier than other nut milks like walnut and Brazil nut, but it blends really well with harder, more cruciferous vegetables like broccoli! So, if you are wanting to make pumpkin seed…

Shiitake Mushroom, Kale and Red Potato Bowl

Well, here we are again…another mushroom recipe! And yes, similar to my Potato Vegan Tacos, and yes, also similar to my Quinoa and Sauteed Mushrooms recipe.  What can I say, I love mushrooms and I love kale! Call this one a hybrid between the two. Let’s talk for a moment about shiitake mushrooms. Mushrooms in…

Pumpkin Seed Milk

Let me start this off by saying that if ANYONE tells you “<insert name> seed/nut milk doesn’t taste good, don’t try it,” DO NOT LISTEN TO THEM! I heard from a friend of mine (who shall remain nameless) that they once tried making pumpkin seed milk, and it tasted horrible. So naturally, this discouraged me…

Quinoa bowl with Portobello, Kale and Sweet Potato

Ever since finding out that roasting portobello mushrooms with tamari sauce is basically the best thing ever, I’ve been on a huge portobello kick, roasting and mixing with all sorts of things. Of course, it was only a matter of time before I ended up adding them to one of my quinoa bowl mixtures, so…this…

Banana Coconut Lemon Smoothie

When you think, “Hmm, what’s a great smoothie combination?” I can almost guarantee you that banana, lemon, coconut milk and ginger aren’t the first ingredients that come to your mind. But, surprisingly (or not surprisingly) enough, this is a really great tasting smoothie and combo! What’s more, this is a great alkaline smoothie that can…

Vegan Venezuelan Pabellon

Pabellon Criollo is a Venezuelan meat dish made with pulled  beef, arepas, beans, rice and plantains. I was watching The Food Network one night and I saw a segment on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives about a place that made Venezuelan Pabellon. The woman was show what went into the sauce, and I thought wow, that…

RAWmarkable Carob Bliss Balls

When I was a kid, we used to make peanut butter balls with carob and coconut, and we called them “Bliss Balls”. Now that my sister has a two year old and pregnant with her 2nd, she started asking me if I remembered the recipe or if I could make one up. So I gave…

Simple Southwestern Quinoa Salad!

This is a really easy and versatile recipe. This can be used as side dish, for stuff other vegetables like sweet peppers or potatoes, or you can use this as a full meal to make at the beginning of the week, that you can take everywhere with you! There is minimal cooking, as you must…

RAWmarkable Nut Butter Candy!

Much like my RAWmarkable Mocha Chocolate candy recipe, this nut butter candy is made with all raw, fresh ingredients, it takes about 10 minutes to make and can be done in only 2 steps! You don’t need any fancy dishes either, just a small pot and a regular ice cube tray will work great! This…
