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…

Quinoa and Cabbage Stuffed Squash

It’s winter and squash is in season! I LOVE squash, and it’s such a versatile vegetable to cook with. You can boil it, roast it, stuff it, shred it, mash it, literally anything you think of! This recipe was not even made on purpose. I had decided to make a quinoa, rice and cabbage salad…

Ukrainian Purple Cabbage and Kale Salad

Purple cabbage is a common staple in Ukraine, as is parsley and radish. Together in a salad, the taste is divine! This is a great salad to add to a hummus or quinoa wrap, as the crunch in it will give your wrap some extra texture. The addition of kale also helps to add some…

RAWmarkable Peppermint Bark

Much like my RAWmarkable Coconut Bark, this chocolate can be made by using fresh coconut meat and the coconut water! If you don’t have a fresh coconut on hand, this can also be done with full fat coconut cream, which can be found in any store. My raw vegan chocolates are some of the easiest desserts…

Quinoa Sprout and Hummus Tacos

I was shopping at Whole Foods one day when I came upon an entire gluten free vegan tortilla section. They had the usual grain free and rice flour options, then I saw some cassava and coconut flour tortillas (pictured above). Of course, I had to get them, as anything with coconut as a main ingredient…

RAWmarkable Mocha Chocolate

Oh boy guys, this is a good one! These coffee chocolates are to die for! It was very hard for me to find a raw vegan chocolate base to make chocolates, but once I did (see RAWmarkable chocolate)…now there is no stopping me with the types of chocolates I can make, so stayed tuned for me!…
