I love raw vegan food and recipes so much. It is my passion, I could literally talk about it all day. But I get it isn't everyone's thing, and not everyone wants to spend that amount of time in the kitchen.
So I have been trying to brainstorm easy raw vegan recipes, and healthy vegan products I can share with you to make "raw" more accessible. Because at the end of the day we all want to be healthy and feel good, whether cooking is your passion or not. Eating more raw foods made me feel so much better, and I want more people to experience the same.
One critique raw vegan products/ingredients often get is that they are very expensive.
Since this recipe includes two vegan products I wanted to touch on this briefly.
First, you don't need to buy all these healthy vegan products at once. You can slowly build up to cleaning out your pantry and swapping out the unhealthy things like soy sauce, with better products like coconut aminos.
Second, these vegan products make being healthy in our busy lifestyles a lot easier. I don't always have time to make my own cashew cheese. So it's really awesome I can find it at wholefoods now and not have to compromise on my health when I'm busy.
I will end with this. Good health is priceless. If you spend money on your health, it is an act of self love ❤. Investing in your health will reward you with a high quality life!
If you are on a budget, this might not be the recipe for you. Raw vegan nachos, like fresh pressed juices are luxury items to only enjoy sometimes.
My hope for people is that they will choose something like raw vegan nachos instead of a burger & fries when they want to indulge. Spending their money on something that will at least benefit their health.
1 cucumber sliced into "chips"
Mango pico de gallo: onion, tomato, cilantro, mango, jalapeno, all diced
1 avocado sliced
*Sieste Cashew Queso (can find at Wholefoods in CA)
**Brad's Raw Veggie Chips Cheddar Flavor (can find at Wholefoods in CA)
*If you can't find vegan cashew queso I recommend adding another vegan cheese that is made from cashews or nuts. If you mix the kite hill almond cream cheese with salsa I think it tastes similar to queso. You can also use spicy flavored hummus.
**If you can't find raw chips, choose a high quality blue corn chip, or slice and bake corn tortillas to make your own chips without all the oil!
