Raw vegan recipes

I had a lot of mis-haps, but also a few successes.

Here are a few of my favorite concoctions. Click on the images for a larger view.

Dark blue morning go juice Dark Morning Wonder

It was worth going raw vegan just to discover this morning treat:
– 1 cup almond milk
– 1/2 cup coconut water
– 1 banana
– 1 fat Tbspn of raw cacao powder
– 1/2 to 1 Tbspn spirulina
– 1 Tbspn raw unfiltered honey

Mix and match the extras (I’ve tried all these, all good): 1 cup blueberries or one pitted peach, 1 raw egg or 1 Tbsp raw hemp seeds, 1/2 Tbsp coconut oil or 1 Tbsp extra virgin oil.

Tell it you love it and let sit in the fridge overnight. OMG! Like chocolate mousse for breakfast

Apple pie for breakfast (without the pie)

Variation on the theme above. Another breakfast worth getting up for:

– 1 cup almond milk
– 1/2 cup coconut water or raw apple juice
– 1 banana
– 1 apple, skin and all
– 1 fat tsp cinnamon
– 1 dash of vanilla extract

Mix and match the extras: 1 Tbsp raw hemp seeds, 1/2 Tbsp coconut oil.
Tell it you love it and let sit in the fridge overnight. You’ll need a spoon to “drink” this one.

Cloudy Cucumber
I packed this one on a hike. It confused my hiking partner’s dog – no sandwich to lust after.

– 1 cup kombucha (homemade!)
– 1 cup filtered water
– 1 cup spinach
– 1 cucumber, skin and all
– 1/2 avocado or 1 banana
– a handful of parsley
– as many mint leaves as the plant is willing to let you have

Note: I also tried this one with chard … not so great.

 hummus
 Sprouted mung beans hummus

These are my pride and joy.
Sprout the beans:
– 1 cup whole green mung beans + 3 cup water, let sit overnight.
– In the morning, drain the water, say hello to the beans, and place a wet cloth on top
– That evening, see that the sprouts are ~ 1/4 of an inch.
Make the hummus:
In your roommate’s blender place
– 2 cups raw sprouted beans
– 2 fat Tbsp tahini
– 2 fat Tbsp extra virgin oil
– 2 large garlic cloves
– 2 medium lemons, juiced
– 1/4 pure loved water
– 1 tsp cumin
– 2 tsp coriander
– 1 dash of cayenne pepper
– Himalayan salt as you like

Options: replace the cumin with turmeric. The far one was made with turmeric, and as you can tell, half of it couldn’t wait for the photo.
1 cup dry mung beans makes 4 cups hummus.
