The warmth in this recipe comes from the yummy root veggies we call carrots, and also the cayenne pepper - tahini combination.The dried fruit option (Thompson raisins or dates) makes this an extra-nourishing recipe.

A simple raw lasagna that you can easily whip up in under 15 minutes. My cooked omnivore boyfriend devours this. Ought to serve four people but we like it so much it's usually gone in one sitting between the two of us. Doesn't necessarily taste just like "regular" lasagna, but it tastes damn good!
There are a ton of good vegan mayonnaise recipes out there. But I keep coming back to this recipe I adapted from a vegan camp I went to about ten years ago. It is mild, creamy, and delicious. As usual, I have listed quantities as a guide only. I tend to add in the lemon juice, vinegar and salt at the end, and keep tasting in between each addition. Every batch yields a mayo of a slightly different personality, depending on my mood, and what I am going to use it for. But the quantities I have provided will keep you on the right track. Follow them, and you will get a mayo that you can play with.
My mum and I make these raw fruit balls all the time and they are absolutely delicious. We use raw almonds, cashews and macadamias as our nutty blend. But you could use any nuts that tickle your festive fancy. Just know that each nut mix will yield a treat of a different personality. Roll out these vegan treats. They make great snacks in school or work lunch boxes; great power snacks for a long work out; or a great little bite to put beside a cup of herbal tea. These will last in a sealed glass container in the fridge for weeks. But they never do!
This is one of the jewels I picked up from Kurma Dasa. This phenomenal raw vegan dip is right up there in my top 5 dips of all time. BIG statement. But true! It is a fantastic example of the “blend and chow in under 5 minutes” philosophy. It is so quick and easy, bursting with flavor, and incredibly versatile. Another added bonus is that the flavor mix is really different from your hog standard store bought dips, and makes a unique addition to the nibble plate at your next dinner.
This “chutney” originates from the South of India. It has a beautiful, rich, creamy texture – you will fool even the most dairy addicted foodie. This is a fantastic “butter” or spread for rice cakes, toast, pita bread, flat bread for wraps, tortilla chips, corn cakes, or veggie sticks. You can also thin this dip out with extra water, and it makes a fantastic creamy dairy free salad dressing. This will keep in the fridge for a few days. This recipe is a quickie staple in my repertoire, and I have never had a disappointed snout. In fact, this would be one of my most requested and remembered recipes.
