White chocolate raw vegan cheesecake with (so far) the best crust I've made yet. I made two of these adorable hearts and put the second in the freezer to enjoy next week. I learned how to make this at chef Elaina Love and chef Chaya's class last week. Chaya teaches at Cafe Gratitude and both of these women are so lovely, talented and a treat to be around. I learned so much. Enjoy the photos, I SO wish you all could taste this! I enjoyed the second half of my heart cake with some frozen cherries I let melt all over the top. Oh. My. Yum.

This was so goooooood, I may make it for dinner again tonight. Although my sunburgers didn't turn out like a pattie the taste was just what I was hoping for. This is Ani Phyo's "burger" recipe with a Bubbies pickle and an arugula, cucumber, lemon juice and honey salad. I topped my burger mixture with some nutrtional yeast, try to get that B-12 when I can!

This was last night's dinner, more arugula salad with lemon, celery, zucchini and dulse with cucumber lining the sides of my bowl/plate so I could dip them into some fresh salsa. Yum.

More Ani Phyo! This is her taco nut "meat" with my choice of toppings: sliced mango, cilantro, fresh salsa, avocado and cucumber stuffed into romaine hearts. Really fresh, really beautiful and very good for you.

My awesome sis in law bought Raw Food Real World for me for my birthday and this book is amazing! Twice this week I made the samosa filling and mango chutney. The first time (pictured below) I scooped the samosa filling in to romaine leaves and then added the chunky and very spicy chutney (so spicy in fact I chopped in half a banana) to the top like my own little indian tacos. Crazy! The second time I made these two dishes I let the chutney run in the blender longer to make it less like a salsa and well, more like a true chutney/dressing. I tore up a bunch of romaine and made a big indian salad, sorry no photo. I'm over the moon with these two recipes. So tasty!

Today is my raw food class with one of my favorites, Elaina Love! I'm so happy and excited that she's here in Portland that I'm simply not going to even think about the ridiculous snow outside right now.

In the last week I've made some great raw vegan food from my current fav uncook books: Raw Food Real World and Ani Phyo's, Ani's Raw Food Kitchen. Here are my photos of Ani's donut holes made by me. Dried pineapple, dates, vanilla, coconut, and almonds and they are so lovely and easy to make.
