At Raw Generation, we always have two main goals:
Make healthy easy.
Make healthy delicious.
With that in mind, I created these 3 plant-based recipes that are sure to please even the pickiest eater.
1. Vegan No-Oil Hummus RecipeThis is a staple vegan recipe. Keep it on hand to pull together quick snacks and meals anytime.
2 cans chickpeas (reserve 1 can bean liquid)
Juice of 1 large lemon
2 TB raw tahini
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp cumin
2 TB nutritional yeast
Sea salt to taste (I like a generous amount)
Blend all ingredients (including the reserved bean liquid) in a high-speed blender or food processor using the metal "S" blade until smooth. Enjoy with cut-up raw vegetables, on top of a salad, or as a delicious and healthy topper for baked potatoes.
2. Tomato & Avocado Vegan Salad
I love this delicious raw plant-based recipe for hosting friends and bringing to potlucks.
4 large vine or Heirloom tomatoes
1 ripe avocado
2 raw cobs of corn
Handful scallions (aka green onion)
Juice of 1 lime
Sea salt to taste
Cracked black pepper
Dash onion powder
Dash garlic powder
1 TB extra virgin olive oil or less
Cut-up tomatoes and avocado and add to a mixing bowl. Cut kernels off the cobs of corn and add to bowl. Thin slice scallions and add. Combine all dressing ingredients right into the bowl and mix well. Serve as a side dish, on top of a salad, in lettuce or red cabbage cups, or as a meal with a baked potato on the side
3. Vanilla Greens Chia Pudding Easy Vegan RecipeThis super easy vegan dish is great for breakfast on the go or whenever hunger hits.
1 bottle Vanilla Greens Smoothie
1/4 cup chia seeds (1/2 cup if you like it very thick)
Berries or other chopped fruits
Place both ingredients in a mason jar or glass container w/lid. Stir well and allow to sit in the refrigerator overnight (or 3-4 hours if you want it sooner). Enjoy topped with any fresh fruits you like.
Cheers to you and your wellness journey,
