I absolutely love preparing food for others, though it’s a rare occasion that I am actually doing just that. I tend to feed mostly myself these days. When preparing food for just myself, I tend to take a simple approach. My diet consists of mostly smoothies, salads, and random pates or dips for my raw veggies! So, you can imagine my excitement when I heard my favorite taste tester, Dominic, was coming to visit for 10 whole days! That meant ten whole days of yoga, fun, love, and great raw food! I was excited to host my surprise guest and feed him only the best of what Goldielocks has to offer. This post will cover a few of the meals prepared by me for my Dom!
A TACO SURPRISE!
These taco ingredients were served on shells of cabbage or swiss chard. The numerous fillings made the tacos so scrumptious! It all began with a sunflower seed “refried bean” pate which was packed with all the typical taco flavorings, cumin, garlic, red pepper, a little onion, garlic, and more. These tacos also included a yummy fresh salsa, guacamole(w/ local Florida avos), sprouts, and a yummy cashew cheese sauce!
A Collaboration of Sorts
This meal was packed full of yummyness! First we have a spinach and corn chowder made with a cashew/celery base. Along with the soup was my favorite spiralina cauliflower popcorn, a tasty salad, and a “untuna” pate! It was all generously topped with local sprouts and a cayenne creme sauce!
A special thanks to my dear friend Forrest for allowing me to borrow her spiralizer for an indefinite amount of time! I made a pasta from zucchini, parsnip, and carrot. With the noodles, I mixed cherry tomatoes, marinated red onion, peppers, cauliflower, and whatever else I needed to use up in the refrigerator. The truffle sauce was made from cashews, garlic, truffle oil, celtic sea salt, fresh ground pepper, and some water. I topped the pasta with a fresh mac nut cheese crumble!
These were the only a few of the dishes I photographed during the past week! I love sharing the energy of raw food with all of you out there! If you have any recipes you would specifically like to have, send me a message. I’m collaborating a recipe book right now! LOVE TO you all!
