RAW Wednesday: No Egg Salad Wrap

I have used this delicious recipe for a long time now.  It is delicious, nutritious and fun to make.  Also it looks like traditional egg salad but it is contains no eggs it is raw and vegan.

A hallmark of any good recipe is the ability to be modified to your tastes and situations. This recipe definitely meets that criteria. The water, turmeric, and raw cashews are required but everything else can be modified. The lemon juice can be substituted with lime juice or even apple cider vinegar. Salt is to taste and omit it if you feel the need.


Use this recipe as a base and then modify it to fill your particular need.

This is quite a fatty, heavy-tasting recipe, so you'll want to ensure that you're serving it with lots of nice fresh veggies, especially romaine lettuce. Yum!



Makes about 2 servings. Each serving is about 315 calories and packed with magnesium & vitamin C


Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups cashews
3/4 cup water
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
3/4 teaspoon turmeric
2 cloves garlic
3/4 teaspoon celtic sea salt
3 celery stalks - finely chopped (reserve!)
3/4 of a fresh red pepper - finely chopped (reserve!)
sprinkle paprika (reserve!)
  1. Add everything (except celery, red pepper, pepper, and paprika) into a high-speed blender. Blend very well until it resembles a smooth, creamy hollondaise sauce! (Note: if you don't own a super powerful blender try soaking the cashews for a few hours first to help soften them.)
  2. Pour yellow "egg salad" liquid mixture into a large bowl. Add chopped celery, chopped red pepper and anything else you'd like to add, like chopped parsley or chopped white onion, too.
  3. Mix everything together with a spoon until nicely coated, like in pictures. Sprinkle with pepper and paprika. Your raw egg salad recipe is now ready to eat!
  4. Serve on romaine lettuce wraps for a raw egg salad sandwich experience

Happy MoFo! I'm excited to be back on my newly revamped, but same old same, mediocre blog for Vegan MoFo 2018. Last year I participated but I participated exclusively on the gram (you can follow me if you feel like it). While I loved the daily prompts, I totally missed sharing the recipes; so I'm glad to be back. 
Quick explanation about the name change (in case you noticed):In previous years, this blog participated in Vegan MoFo as "Vegan4One." There were a lot of reasons why I felt the need to change my blog name but ultimately the main reason was that my recipes were no longer 4One and I found the name misleading to readers. When I originally started this blog back in September of 2009, I was cooking vegan for one person but so much has happened over the years (as it should) and to make that long story short, I'm cooking for more like 6 folks now (2 grown men, 1 teenage boy, myself, and an extra serving for my lunch the next day).

RESTAURANT REVIEW: Firenza

...

I’m not gonna lie to you my pizza was very bomb but everything else was very not.

Firenza (located in downtown Boise) looks, feels, and acts like a corporate fast food franchise because it is a corporate fast food franchise but it’s a corporate fast food franchise that offers vegan pizza, and if it wasn’t for the damn up-charges it would be, on the cheap. 

My guests and I walked through the front door of Firenza (which was kinda hard to find to be honest) and I immediately got thrown back to my high school cafeteria and not in a pleasant way. Imagine bare white walls and what looks like a giant high school logo painted over a pizza assembly line. 
We approached the pizza assembly line and I immediately told the staff member who welcomed us that this was our first time visiting the restaurant and asked for guidance. They said ok and blankly stared at us until I eventually broke the awkward silence and started asking about vegan options. 
The sauces on the menu were clearly marked as veg…

Savory Taco Pancakes

Below is an actual text I sent to my partner and son, but first some context: I practice Intermittent Fasting every day, so breakfast doesn't get served until noon or later daily - thus it's not really referred to as breakfast. We usually refer to it as "first meal" and sometimes brunch. My kid and partner can't really handle the late first meal on the weekends, but they deal surprisingly well. While I was making first meal today, my son was snacking on leftover cold pizza from yesterday and my partner was chugging a blueberry protein shake. So what does this have to do with the above referenced text? Well when they grew tired of waiting on me to finish putting together this dish, they decided to run down to our closest music store and grab some new guitar strings. Almost immediately after their departure, I had completed today's first meal and let me tell you I feel like a completed a masterpiece. So here's the text I sent in a group message as the van w…
