I have been eating vegan since I returned to the States in the summer of 2015. I love to cook and have tried to maintain a ritual of meal prepping for my busy work schedule. I recently met a raw vegan. To me, those people are hardcore. I know my friends and family look at me like I am nuts, but I have to be honest, I had the same feeling towards the raw vegan folks. I thought, well what would I eat? Salads and sandwiches? That was just not going to be enough for me, I felt. However, recently, I have gotten a little cozy to the idea of using less dishes and having not to work so hard to create a meal. I definitely now feel I was being ignorant and downright lazy. I already make a juice every morning. I make sushi, and a few other quick raw recipes. I decided to look out for some vegan raw recipes that I would like to try. FYI, I have done about 3 on the list so far.. and those pinwheels are the TRUTH!
5 Raw Vegan Recipes I Want to Try:
1. Kelp Noodles w/ Garlic Kale Pesto-
I am still wondering where I will find kelp noodles, but I do love pesto. This recipe was created by Raw Manda. It looks easy to make and very tasty.
2. Sun Dried Tomato and Basil Pinwheels-
I recently tried this at this Superbowl gathering I went to, and they were a hit. I was a little nervous about finding vegan cream cheese and parmesan but my local store had it, and it was not crazy expensive. I found this recipe at Minimalist Baker so you know it’s easy to make and delicious.
3. Raw Taco Salad-
I made this recipe a few years ago, and my boyfriend had no idea I took out the meat. It was really that good, and really easy to make if you have a food processor on deck, which every vegan needs to have in their lives. I found this recipe over at Eating Vibrantly.
4. Vegan sushi-
I would fully qualify this as raw given that you have to cook the rice, but it’s really really close. I have made this recipe before, and it’s easy and super fun for guests. I found the recipe over at Lazy Cat Kitchen.
5. Vegan Tuna Salad-
I had a craving for tuna, and came upon this awesome recipe from Eating Vibrantly. I love the taste of it. I would not use siracha sauce, but to each their own. This was easy for a quick lunch when I am moving too fast in the day.
I hope these recipes are easy to follow and you can try some easy raw vegan recipes yourself. Please like and share.
