Raw Zucchini Parmigiana Pesto Wraps

Ok, we’re coming to the tail end of our raw recipes for awhile, I promise!

This one is pretty impressive if I do say so myself, and it is definitely worth sharing. It’s fairly labor intensive, but I promise this will “wow” anyone who tries it!

1 zucchini, sliced super thin, lengthwise  on a mandolin

12 cherry tomatoes

1 bunch of basil

1 cup raw sunflower seeds

1/2 cup walnuts

1/3 cup nutritional yeast, plus 1/4 cup

1/3 cup olive oil

5 cloves garlic, minced

2 tbsp Dijon mustard

1 tbsp water

Sea salt and black pepper

  • In a food processor, make the pesto by pulsing basil, walnuts, garlic, 1/3 cup nutritional yeast, sea salt and black pepper
  • Slowly, add in oil until smooth
  • Grind the sunflower seeds and 1/4 cup nutritional yeast together in a food processor, blender or coffee grinder until a meal/flour is formed
  • Pour the sunflower seed mix onto a plate
  • Mix together the water and mustard and set aside in a bowl
  • Dredge zucchini slices through mustard mix then dredge through sunflower seed mix and coat completely
  • Pour a heaping tbsp of the pesto on one end of the zucchini strip (covering about a two inch area of the strip) and then top with a tomato
  • Roll the rest of the zucchini over until a wrap is formed and then pierce a toothpick through it to keep it together
  • Serve with raw marinara sauce

Thai Salad with Sweet & Sour Peanut Tofu

016

Yep. This is a tofu recipe. Which means hell may have froze over. Or pigs are flying. So beware. Most of you know I’m a big tofu hater. It’s super processed, generally genetically modified and messes with my hormones like crazy. I pretty much avoid soy all together, to be honest. So you can imagine […]

Cranberry Orange & Kale Quinoa Salad

Almost a week with no posts. That just proves how insane my life has been as of late. Cooking at 4:30 in the morning, revolving my life around a soaking/sprouting/dehydrating schedule and driving into Boston every other day for this actor has become the norm for me. And it’s pretty exhausting. All this raw vegan […]

Raw Stuffed Mushrooms with Rosemary Cream Sauce

001

Man, by the time Friday rolls around nowadays, I am wiped the eff out. Cooking every single meal for this actor is not an easy task. I feel like an old lady, but literally standing on your feet all day takes it’s toll on your. I’m in my kitchen more than I sleep now, and […]

Raw Banana Crepe Wraps with Strawberries

003

Oh man, who new raw food could be this good? As limiting and restrictive a raw vegan diet can be, I find myself TOTALLY in love with many of the recipes I find or create that are uncooked. Since I’m new to a lot of these raw breakfast foods, I find myself constantly falling in […]

Whenever someone asks me about my diet, or wants to know what my favorite vegan meal is, I always end up mentioning my Raw Vegan Taco Salad. I still can’t get enough of it, and it’s an easy, popular dish among clients. I feel like I should probably come up with a fancier dish to […]
