Last week when I did a poll on the Eco-Vegan Gal Facebook page about what video recipe you'd like to see next the majority voted for "entrée" - you wish is my command. Since I'm on a raw food kick, I decided to make a living foods dish for dinner last night. I flipped through my favorite raw recipe books and felt that it was a sign when I found the same dish in 3 of them (give or take a few ingredients)! With a few modifications I whipped up a satisfying, filling, nutritious dish that my boyfriend even liked, and almost no packing was used (completely plastic free!). What I ended up with is most like "Stirred, Not Fried" from Chef AJ's "Unprocessed" book.
 
This recipe is free of oil, salt, and sugar, and it's anti-candida. I purchased all organic ingredients at Whole Foods for a cost of $20, and it yielded about 4 servings. 

In 2009 I met a woman named Violette and she told me about this amazing raw shake she makes everyday, and then she kindly emailed me the recipe to share with you! Violette got it from her friend Rizwan Mirza, and it's absolutely fantastic.

Mary's Tropical Fruit Smoothie


My sister Mary sent me this recipe a few years ago with a very cute picture of her enjoying it with the GlassDharma straw I gave her. Though it's a little high in natural sugars, it's a great occasional treat when you need something refreshing and crave some tropical fruit. If you want to make it extra eco, buy fresh fruit and freeze it yourself - you can even juice your own oranges! Then buy some flaxseed in bulk and it's completely packaged free!
