This simple, bright summer salad has a fun twist in the SMASHED version. If you haven’t smashed your cucumbers before you are in for a treat. Not only does it give them an awesome new texture but it is so dang satisfying. This is a great recipe to make with kids. They will have just as much fun smashing alongside you!
This recipe will require that you track down freeze dried peas which are often available at Whole Foods Markets and always available online at Amazon. I prefer the Karen’s Naturals brand of peas. Freeze dried peas are flash heated before freezing unfortunately, so they aren’t considered technically raw. But I find this meal to be such a great, hearty fall back for those times when I’m needing something really satisfying. I consider it an almost-raw dish that is delicious and so filling! This would be the perfect meal for someone who is trying to transition into an all raw diet. This recipe is low fat, vegan, and high-raw.
Here’s a recipe that is so quick and easy to throw together but can bring a little extra deliciousnss to any of the meals you make throughout the week. This raw “parmesan topping is just as good over cooked food as it is over raw dishes. Try using it on top of salads, steamed veggies, noodle dishes– anywhere you want! This recipe is raw and vegan.
