Raw Wrap/Taco/Burrito (video)

This recipe is an easy way to incorporate more fresh, organic, raw food into your diet. Plus, it's a fun introduction to collard greens if you're unfamiliar with them. You can follow the recipe or get creative with what you have on hand. It's crunchy and savory and makes a nice snack or lunch.

Cooking with Eric Lechasseur

As a result of being one of Seed Kitchen's best customers I've come to know the chef and owners very well: Eric Lechassuer and Sanae Suzuki. Recently they asked me to help them with cooking videos, and they came out very well.

Here are the first 2 videos in the series. Join Eric as he demonstrates how to make 2 organic, macrobiotic recipes from his books "Love Eric" and "Love Eric and Sanae". Both these dishes are delicious and easy - they each take less than 10 minutes to prepare. I highly recommend that you try them, especially if you've never been to Seed (you're missing out!).

Almond milk, papaya, and peach smoothie

Tropical Smoothie

I recently made a big batch of almond milk, purchased a papaya because of claims that it aids digestion, and was given some peaches: so I decided to blend them all together and it resulted in a delicious, lightly sweet smoothie. Give it a try!

Homemade Ginger Tea with lemon

 
I haven't been feeling well today - been kinda nauseous with a bit of an upset stomach. I think I'm just detoxing from the big change in diet I'm going through (no gluten, soy, or refined sugar). I also had a ton of daikon radish last night, which is known for having cleansing properties
 
This ginger-lemon tea is incredibly soothing and easy to make.

Happy National Hot Cocoa Day! Yep, that's actually a day (look it up if you don't believe me). To celebrate I finally recorded my new vegan hot chocolate recipe, which I've been perfecting over the last few weeks. I've experimented with different nut milks and flavors and this one is the richest and tastiest yet! Plus, it's free of gluten, soy and sugar and you can use all bulk ingredients. Enjoy!

Vegan "Tuna" Salad Using Chickpeas (Garbanzo Beans)

 
In a video I did on Easy, Cheap Vegan Meals I mentioned Chickpea "Tuna" Salad, which costs about $1.50 to make per serving. A reader named Lindsay asked if I could share the recipe, so I thought I might as well do a video too!

There is a lot of talk about the scrumptious food at Vida Vegan Con this past weekend, but I was especially excited to hear about the chia seed pudding, a dish many attendees experienced for the first time. Yesterday I posted my favorite recipe for it, Mint Chocolate Coconut, and today I decided to try making the version from the conference, despite it's lack of chocolate. I found a recipe from The Svelte Kitchen and adapted it a little based on my dietary preferences - replaced the agave nectar with stevia powder, the almond milk with cashew butter, skipped the salt, and added in a little coconut oil - pure bliss! Whether you were at VVC and want to mimic the incredible dessert you had or are just looking for something new to do with chia seeds, you're gonna love this!

Spinach-Mushroom Soft Tacos

 
Here's another fantastic gluten-free recipe from my best friend Sarah, who couldn't keep her paws out of my kitchen! Though we enjoyed going out for meals, we also had fun taking home food from the farmer's market, Co-Opportunity, and Whole Foods and turning it into to some amazing dishes...or rather, Sarah made them and I ate them. ; )
 
After falling in love with Daiya and some Food For Life's sprouted corn tortillas, she whipped up this scrumptious fare:

Simple, Delicious, Gluten-free, Soy-free Taco

The gluten-free soy-free diet is going really well - I feel wonderful. But it is a little tricky trying to keep my meals varied and exciting. I went to Whole Foods last night and was in the mood for something Mexican, so I grabbed some things and threw this dish together. Though it is really simple, it's insanely delicious. The tortillas have a great flavor and texture, the Daiya melts wonderfully, and the salsa gives it  kick and the satisfaction of fresh veggies.
