+ food i’ve been loving +

Lately, I’ve been enjoying making a lot of simple, easy, and healthy dishes. I love using a variety of veggies and sauces. For the past week or so, I’ve been trying to incorporate more raw recipes and dishes into my day-to-day and its working out great! Raw meals are the easiest to prepare and assemble!

Here are some of my favorites!



Number one: Raw Vegan Salad Bowl


Massaged lacinto kale (with lemon, olive oil, & garlic. Massage for about five minutes)

Zucchini noodles

Cauliflower rice

Persian cucumber


Petite peas

Red onion

Shredded carrots

So easy to make as long as you massage the kale first and let it sit in the dressing whilst you prepare your other veggies! These ingredients are very interchangeable and can be switched out with whatever you prefer or have in your fridge! Or you can even pair with with rice or potatoes or something cooked! Assemble & ENJOY!



Number two: Raw Vegan Sushi with Marinated Shiitake Mushrooms

I always love making veg sushi, raw or with rice! If you make it raw, you can use many different substitutes for the rice, too! Use whatever veggies you love for the inside to make it extra delicious. Tip* Be sure to marinate the mushrooms first!


Nori sheets

Marinated shiitake mushrooms (with soy sauce, jalapeño, green onion, & sesame seeds. Tip* use left over sauce for dipping!)

Cauliflower “rice” (throw it in the food processor to make small rice-sized pieces. I used a small bit of tahini, rice vinegar, & hemp seeds to help hold together & it worked out well!)

Persian cucumber

Shredded carrots

Red bell pepper

Green cabbage

Wrap those veggies up and call it raw vegan sushi 🙂


Number three: Vegan Breakfast Burrito


Red potatoes (pan fried with a little olive oil & red onion)




Black beans (cumin, onion powder, & chili powder)

Avocado (green cabbage, lime, & jalapeño)

Right when I tried this, it IMMEDIATELY became a favorite of mine. Theres just something about potatoes wrapped in a tortilla for me! DELICIOUS. Seriously. I had this for dinner one night and I can’t wait to make it again!


Number four: Vegan Rice “Chiken” Bowl


Trader Joe’s Chickenless Crispy Tenders (SO GOOD)

Mixed baby greens

Petite peas

Persian cucumbers

Jasmine Rice

This bowl is soon easy to make especially if you live around a Trader Joe’s because thats where I got all of these ingredients! Sometimes, you are too lazy to make some extravagant dinner, but still want something nutritious and yummy. Trader Joe’s has your back. They have an amazing selection of freezer stuff you can throw together pretty quickly. LOVE them.
