This is a bit of a random post with the latest happenings around here...
Last weekend I taught a raw food class which is always fun. I love to share this lifestyle with people. We plowed through heaps of recipes for the beginner who wants to incorporate easy recipes and ideas into their lifestyle.
Hands-on portion... making lasagna!
Me showing the nut milk bag... it's fun showing people how to milk the vegan cow.
In the kitchie... we had nori rolls goin on, choco berry pie, drinks, dips, etc etc...
Back in the kitchie, I played with chocolate covered granola bars! I used the Super Granola Bar recipe and Basic Dark Chocolate recipe both from Just Desserts. I didn't dehydrate the bars, but instead pressed the dough into a seran wrap lined pan, froze it for a few hours then sliced into bars and dipped into the chocolate. The result is hard chocolate on the outside and a nice soft oatmeal granola bar on the inside. Mmmm!
Made mini cakes for an event: Black & Whites, and Strawberry.
A friend came for dinner this week... simple and quick nori rolls were on the menu. Since I'm not a fan of cauliflower, I prefer a parsnip rice (parsnips, cashews, lemon juice, salt zapped in the food processor), rolled with red pepper, avocado, spinach, and carrot. We enjoyed these with caesar salad. The jackfruit ice cream was for dessert.
Some exciting news and a recipe coming soon!
