You’re not a raw chef if you’re not cracking coconuts!
I’ve spent the past month working furiously in my raw kitchen, whipping up creations for the upcoming uncook book. And I’ve been taking pictures along the way, chronicling my successes. And a few of my failures as well! I thought it would be fun to share some of my photography – a virtual taste test, if you will. It’s been such fun so far and these pictures inspire me to keep up my steam as I continue on in this project. I hope that you enjoy them!
A cilantro pumpkin seed pesto that knocks my socks off. I can’t stop making this!
Sprouted lentil pesto stacks on heirloom tomatoes.
The guacamole was good, but the raw tortilla chips stole the show!
This adorable little iced sugar cookie was actually a major fail in the flavor department. She sure is cute to look at, though.
More failures. Chocolate frosting on sugar cookies, neither of which worked.
As an aside – how many times do you attempt a dish before you give up and move on? I’ve attempted three batches of sugar cookies in three recipe iterations, with three total losers. Is it time to give up on my raw sugar cookie dreams?
Delicious sugar snap pea soup.
Savory herbed quinoa crust, this was such an exciting breakthrough!
You’ve already seen this sorrel and sun dried tomato quiche, in the quinoa crust.
Lovely perfectly pale smoothie, the flavor is just as subtle as the hue.
Homemade DIY wheat grass shot without a wheat grass juicer.
This is another one of my absolute favorites, un-tuna salad in lettuce wraps. Best un-tuna I’ve ever had – raw or cooked – since going vegan. Hands down!
Sprouted lentil minestrone, so hearty and delicious.
Um, this was spectacular! California benedict with raw hollandaise.
Warmed wilted lemon and thyme asparagus drizzled with hollandaise.
This barely begins to cover what I’ve been up to in my kitchen. Many more pictures to come!
