The premise is you eat healthy by not only skipping animal products but also keeping the essence of all non animal products by eating them raw, dehydrated, or cooked at a temperature below 115 degrees F.
The meals can be large bowls of salads or you can get real sophisticated and let your imagination go wild. Some raw vegan twists of dishes we know include:
- Shredded zucchini instead of pasta, with blended tomatoes, onions and mushrooms as sauce over it
- Humus with zucchini instead of chick peas - simply use a food processor to blend zucchini slices with the rest of the ingredients to make humus
- Baba Ghanouj where eggplants are sliced thin and frozen overnight, thawed and having the water squeezed out of them to become a similar texture to grilled eggplants used in this dish
With freshly squeezed juices, tabouleh and Fatoush, we managed to have an enjoyable filling and tasty raw vegan lunch.
