favorite RAW dinner


  

MY FAVORITE RAW DINNER.  So I don’t always eat raw dinners – I always prefer a cooked meal as my last meal of the day.  Especially in the winter.  But, it’s hot as hell out so I’ve been eating a lot more raw food to keep my body temp down and also my apartment a lot cooler. This “marinara” sauce I make is absolutely delish! So if you read my blog regularly, you already know I’m not that precise with measurements or recipes because I honestly throw things together and taste test until it is perfect – I urge you to do this as well because you can see exactly how YOU like it, not necessarily me.  I also put my sauce over raw zucchini noodles (“zoodles”) and in order to do this you will need a spiralizer! (www.williams-sonoma.com)  but you could also put it over rice noodles, udon noodles, anything you want.  I just love the zoodles because it feels like you are eating pasta but you eat about, three zucchinis…and we all know that is fantastic.

Ingredients:

1.) Tomatoes (3-4)

2.) sun-dried tomatoes

3.) Cherry tomatoes

4.) Hemp seeds

5.) Oregano

6.) Basil

7.) Green Onion

8.) Dates

So in the vitamix I throw 4 tomatoes, sliced.  A handful of cherry tomatoes.  And a couple of sun-dried tomatoes.  (Some sun-dried tomatoes need to be soaked for a couple of hours so they can blend properly) I then put in a couple leaves of fresh basil and a teaspoon of oregano.  As for the green onions,  I slice up about a cup worth and throw that in as well.  As for the dates and hemp seeds, I put 2 dates in (Make sure you remove the pit, you can also soak these so they are easier to blend) and a tablespoon of hemp seeds.  Then blend it up on high, and taste test.  You will be left with a savory “pasta” sauce.

I apologize again for my awful, awful recipe writing – it’s something I will work on (and will start measuring what I do!) I would love if someone tried out the recipe and told me what they did differently or didn’t do differently!

I'm not brave, brave people have choices. I was given no choice. I lived a fast paced New York lifestyle, and after going blind in my right eye and my unexpected diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis, my fast paced life slowed down a bit. After moving to Philadelphia in the Spring of 2014 I took my diet to another level. I went off all medication and adopted a plant-based whole food vegan lifestyle. I have passion like no other and stay positive through all. My blog is my journey. This journey wasn't the one I had planned for myself, but I embrace it and love every second of it.

  1. […] superfoods to clean up your diet.  Look up some plant based things you can blend up. (i.e.: see my raw vegan marinara sauce recipe) When I was on my 21 day cleanse last year, I would spend 30 dollars A WEEK on food. I remember my […]
