I still havent gone vegan yet, but I think going raw one day a week would be fun when I'm older!


Raw Carrot Cake
serves 8 / approx. 121 calories per slice
approx. macronutrient breakdown: 10g fat / 10g carbs / 2g protein
printable recipe

Ingredients
Cake:
140g carrots, purple & orange variety
1 medjool date
2 tbsp maple syrup (or agave/honey)
1/2 cup whole raw walnuts
1/2 cup desiccated coconut
1 tsp cinnamon, ground
1/2 tsp allspice, ground
1/2 tsp ginger, ground

Icing:
1/2 cup raw whole cashews
1 tbsp agave (or other sweetener)
2 tbsp lemon juice (or to taste)
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1-3 tbsp water (or to desired consistency)
Method
To make the cake dough:
Pulse the carrots in a food processor until finely chopped. Remove and set aside. (You will keep 1/2 cup of this to fold though the mixture later for some texture.)
Process walnuts, spices and coconut until finely chopped. Add medjool date and maple syrup and process until combined. Add the chopped carrots (keeping aside 1/2 cup,) and continue to process until dough is formed. Remove from processor and mix in remaining chopped carrots.

To make the icing:
Clean the food processor and add the cashew nuts, vanilla, agave and lemon juice and process (scraping down sides as neccessary,) until it turns first into a smooth nut butter and then add water until you get a smooth icing consistency. I kept mine quite thick but you could continue to add water until it is able to be drizzled.

My favorite is a simple one, which is weird b/c non-raw food cooking is one of my favorite things to do:

Non-oatmeal

In food processor, process one apple, one pear, one peach, one banana (whatever spare fruit- but apple and bananas make the best starters. I add in the banana last)
add in some salt, cinnamon, pulse again
top with chopped nuts, bluberries, sliced strawberries, cinnamon...


This is so good. The cinnamon makes it taste like oatmeal. I have used mango and found it to be not as good as without it, but it's an easy way to clean the fridge out when fruit is going soft.

I've fallen in love with this sauce:


1 avocado
coconut wate
handful basil
juice from 1/2 lemon
ginger root
dash cayenne
2 tsp miso

Toss everything together in a food processor and adjust flavors to taste. Add coconut water to preferred consistency.

I love it on zucchini noodles or on top of cauliflower rice!

Thanks guys. I'm starting to eat more raw vegan foods and the more tasty foods I make the more likely my family will eat them too.
