Chincha's raw recipes (with pictures!)
I have an Instagram account that I post my raw (and some cooked vegan) recipes to, but I figured it would reach more people if I posted some of them here. I know that not everybody has Instagram, and more importantly there's never too many inspirational pics floating around here to keep us all going. Am I right? ;)
So here it goes: I'll be posting my pics and recipes here and keep adding as I go. Some of them are from Alissa's books, some from various other sites, but most are just improvised or adapted to suit my taste. I don't like to follow recipes strictly, I much rather try things and adapt the flavour of my food as I make it to suit me best. I strive to make my meals so good that not only I can enjoy it, but my carnivore boyfriend does too (which I take as a real compliment).
Zucchini pasta with Alissa's marinara sauce (with extra fresh basil)
I don't have the book here with me so I can't tell you which page this is on but it's in RFFE. This is one of my first Alissa's meals and honestly still one of my faves.
Orange, apple and cucumber juice
I don't like cucumber juice on it's own but in this mixture it gets lost in the orange and apple flavour ;)
Raw zucchini and carrot noodles with a creamy basil dressing
I used a handful of each - cashews, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds as a base. Then I put in a handful of basil leaves, one small garlic clove, dash of paprika and onion powder. I also used a tablespoon or two of lemon juice to enrich the flavor a bit and of course some pink himalayan salt to taste. I added enough water for it to blend smoothly and voila!
These wraps were made with lettuce that I grew on my balcony (yay! :), Dara Dubinet's raw no bean hummus (the recipe is on YouTube) and julienned carrots and zucchini. Simple but fancy ;)
Hope this inspired some of you. I'll post more later!
