RAW SPROUTS SALAD

February 3, 2013

 Dear One,

If you are reading me for the first time, welcome to my blog, and thank you for stopping by. If you have been here before, thank you for visiting again.

Contrary to popular belief, making raw food does NOT necessarily take longer than making cooked food. Yes, it does take time to chop or slice the vegetables, but so does it if one is going to cook the vegetables. When it comes to raw recipes that require dehydrating, yes, it does take long to dehydrate, but it usually only takes minutes of hands-on preparation.

This sprout salad does not even require any chopping and it is great for a nutrition packed lunch ready in 10 minutes ! (excluding sprouting time …)

Sprouts salad

Serves 2 :

about 1 cup alfalfa sprouts

about 1 cup china rose radish sprouts

about 1/4 cup sprouted spelt berries

2 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

1/4 tsp Himalayan crystal salt or sea salt

1/4 tsp dried red chilli flakes (optional)

4 large handfuls rocket salad

2 small handfuls walnut pieces

a dozen cherry tomatoes, sliced in half

Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.

Enjoy.

RAW CHOCOLATE, RASPBERRY AND GINGER MACAROONS

December 16, 2012

 Dear One,

If you are reading me for the first time, welcome to my blog, and thank you for stopping by. If you have been here before, thank you for visiting again.

Taking inspiration from my quick and easy coconut and vanilla macaroons, I made these chocolate, raspberry and ginger macaroons. Chocolate and raspberry must be the best combination ever, and ginger gives these macaroons such a delicious kick.

 

Makes 16 small macaroons :

1 cup dessicated coconut

1/4 cup almonds

1/4 cup raw almond butter or tahini

1/4 cup raw cacao powder

2 tbsp agave or your favourite sweetener, to taste

2 tbsp raspberry powder

1 tbsp fresh ginger root juice

generous pinch Himalayan pink crystal salt or sea salt

Process all ingredients in your food processor until crumbly. The mixture should stick together ; if not, add a tiny bit of agave or water.

Take about a tablespoon of the mixture at a time and either roll into small balls or shape into macaroon halves using an ice cream scoop or a silicon mould to make pop cakes or a similar gadget. Pop them in the fridge to set.

You should even have time to wash the food processor and put the kettle on before your friend gets to your’s.

Enjoy.

November 29, 2012

 Dear One,

If you are reading me for the first time, welcome to my blog, and thank you for stopping by. If you have been here before, thank you for visiting again.

Make these when your best friend is coming over for tea and you only have 15 minutes. Super short ingredient list, no soaking, no chopping, no dehydrating, nothing. And the secret ingredient is actually the salt … it beautifully rounds of the flavours.

Makes 16 small macaroons :

1 cup dessicated coconut

1/4 cup almonds

1/4 cup brazil nuts

1 tbsp coconut butter, melted

1 tbsp agave or your favourite sweetener

1 tbsp vanilla extract or the seeds from 1 vanilla bean

generous pinch Himalayan pink crystal salt or sea salt

Process all ingredients in your food processor until crumbly. The mixture should stick together ; if not, add a tiny bit of agave or water.

Take about a tablespoon of the mixture at a time and either roll into small balls or shape into macaroon halves if you have a silicon mould to make pop cakes or a similar gadget. Pop them in the fridge to set.

You should even have time to wash the food processor and put the kettle on before your friend gets to your’s.

Enjoy.

RAW VEGAN ALMOND PISTACHIO MOUSSE CAKE : QUICK AND EASY

September 1, 2012

Dear One,

If you are reading me for the first time, welcome to my blog, and thank you for stopping by. If you have been here before, thank you for visiting again.

This is what I whipped up for dessert last night :

For 2 individual cakes :

Crust

1/4 cup almond

1/4 cup raw pistachios

1/4 cup dessicated coconut

2 to 3 dates

1 tbsp water

Combine the almonds, pistachios, coconut and dates in a food processor until the mixture reaches a breadcrumbs consistency. Start with 2 dates, do a taste test and add a third one if you want it sweeter.

Mousse

1 ripe avocado

1 tbsp agave syrup (or you favourite liquid sweetener)

3 tbsp water

up to 3ml natural almond essence, depending on your product’s mixing instructions

1 tsp coconut oil

a pinch of salt (rock crystal salt or sea salt)

Blend the avocado, agave / liquid sweetener, water and almond essence until creamy. Then add the coconut oil and salt, blend again.

To serve, assemble the crust and the cream using cooking rounds or little tartlet cases. Allow to set a couple of hours in the refrigerator or a few minutes in the freezer. Top with caramelized almonds and pistachios, or dessicated coconut, or fresh fruits, or anything that takes your fancy. Enjoy

Keep Smiling
