Greetings all! I hope everyone had a great weekend! If you follow me on Facebook, you saw this cartoon yesterday morning….
A little teaser for today’s recipe, which I hope you’ll like!
The world of raw food seems to be a polarizing one. Those that advocate it, swear it leads to benefits such as weight loss, increased vitality, and clearer skin. Others claim it causes nutritional deficiencies and malnourishment. For those of you unfamiliar with it, the raw food diet operates on the idea of eating food in its most natural state, uncooked and unprocessed. As with veganism, it is a lifestyle change, not a diet. The majority of what rawists eat is fruits and vegetables, but it also includes seeds, nuts, sprouts, seaweed, grains, and beans. I’ve not tried it myself, but I love some of the products and recipes that it has born, namely the desserts!
A product that I really enjoy is this raw parmesan….
As with everything that is specialized, this little guy is not cheap!….so I decided to make my own!
RAW VEGAN CHIPOTLE PARMESAN
2 T. walnuts
2 T. nutritional yeast
1/4 t. garlic powder
1/4 t. chipotle powder (or 1/8-1/4 t. cayenne, depending on how spicy you like it)
1/8 t. salt
Using a coffee grinder, whir the walnuts and the nutritional yeast until powdery. Stir in the rest.
This made enough and a little then-some to make the next part of this recipe…..
RAW AVOCADO FRIES
1 ripe avocado
1 raw vegan chipotle parmesan recipe
Slice the avocado into fries. Roll them gently in the vegan parmesan.
I know these probably sound weird, but if you like avocado, you’ll love these! I was initially going to mash it all together, but I thought these would be much prettier and a bit more elegant! You could definitely try the mash too, and dip some tortilla chips into the mix……yum-yum!
