This cold raw vegan “pasta” dish is made from sweet potato spirals and bell peppers and topped with a creamy cashew curry sauce. It contains 400% of your daily Vitamin C intake and nearly 14 grams of protein.
Because eating plant-based isn’t hard enough to get used to, I decided I would take a few days this week and try to follow a raw food diet. My goal was to detox after I ate too much dairy for the first time in three months. While this is not something I will do every day, I did learn that there are some differences between a raw food diet and raw veganism.
This savory mojito sauce is the perfect way to add a touch of dairy-free goodness to any dish. Whether you eat meat or plants, this smooth, creamy green goddess sauce is the guilt-free topping you are looking for. Despite the name, this sauce actually contains no alcohol.
If there is anything that I miss about dairy products, it is definitely cream cheese. I am completely content with a cold, cashew based cream cheese on a bagel, but when it comes to hot recipes, it’s just not the same.
There is one ingredient that I have found that cures my cravings for hot creamy dishes– hummus. As strange as it sounds, hummus really mimics the zest and texture of hot cream cheese, especially when its mixed with other flavors.
