Teriyaki Noodles

Know I know this photo just looks like a pile of zucchini noodles, but it is drenched in a teriyaki sauce from Ani Phyo's Raw Food Essentials book.

I had some spiralised zucchini left over from the other day so making this was a cinch. After adding the sauce, I let it sit for a little while before eating which made the zucchini nice and soft. I ended up eating the whole lot myself!

I will definitely be having this again. It's a keeper!


Tropical Smoothie

I had purchased a couple of thai baby coconuts at the markets the other day and decided this morning to use them up in a smoothie.

Tropical Smoothie

Coconut water and meat from one thai baby coconut
3 handfuls of fresh or frozen pineapple
3 bananas (fresh or frozen)

Blend in a high speed blender for 30 seconds until smooth.

Sorry, no photo but you just have to TRUST me on this one!

Ok, I know I have said this before, but this time I mean it! For some reason I really feel like I have my head into it this time! Today is day three, and I am having a blast!

Last time I tried going RAW I mostly had issues with the kids - cooking for them especially, which in turn made me crave their hot food. Well, not this time. I cooked for them day one and two (no cravings), but today I really tried to include them in my meals. After Tweenie came home from school today I gave them all a green smoothie and stirred through some cacao nibs (I have had these around the house for a while now, but today was the first time I tried them. AND THEY ROCK!!!!!!). Then I made some cheesy cauliflower popcorn (small cut cauliflower, shaken with nutritional yeast, and pinch cayenne pepper. This can then be dehydrated, but we chose to eat it straight away.YUM) - all gone.

For dinner I spiralised some zucchini and made a different tomato sauce to go through it (I have previously made a red capsicum sauce to go on the zucchini). This was very nice also. Baby spiralised some apples and is still picking at that as I type.
I have joined a cool website/forum called Raw Food Rehab which has a mountain of information, recipes, advice and answers lots of questions.

I found a few Aussies on the the forum and  I found the recipe for raw zucchini pasta with tomato sauce through one of them (thank you!)

You really should try it.

If you know of other Raw food sites/forums that rock, let me know!

Ethiopian Stew and Injera Bread

I had a shit load of tomatoes to use up and found this delicious recipe on the PPK site for Ethiopian Spicy Tomato Lentil Stew and completed the meal with injera bread from Vegan Lunchbox cook book. The injera bread lists teff flour as an ingredient but I just used more all purpose flour and they were still good.

As a habitual slack arse, I could not be bothered to get my camera and so used the closest thing to phone. It does take pretty crappy photos, but in a competition, no photo vs crappy photo, I'd put my money on crappy photo (but then again, I'm not a betting woman...). Having said that, no photo wins at the moment until I work out how to blue tooth it to my Mac and then add it here (this HAS been achieved before).

(There, easier than I thought!!)


And just  because I can, a pic of my kitties playing in a plastic bag, just because they can!
