Rawsomely Vegan is truly an awesome wholesome meal book. It is for those of us looking to provide a nutrient rich meal. The awesome part lies in the fact that the meal is easy to prepare. As a working professional with a child I am continuously exploring for ways to provide a well balanced nutrition rich meal that is tasty yet not time consuming. Rawsomely Vegan’s recipes provide this with a little bit of pre-planning in terms of having the core ingredients at hand. No need to stir continuously or worry about over cooking, it really makes eating simple and healthful.
The book starts with a section on ‘Stocking your kitchen’. I would say once you have stocked your kitchen with the right herbs, seeds and spices preparing the meal is a breeze. One thing that I would have liked here would have been some suggestions as to where to get some of these ingredients from. However, the more one starts creating with these recipes the easier the stocking part should become.
The book has about 300 pages worth of recipes with sections on: juices & smoothies, soups & salads, dips, spreads & sides, entrees and deserts. Not just that, each recipe includes nutrient information as well, which I found a bonus! Here is a sample that is simple,easy-breezy and delicious all at the same time:
Savoury Spiced String Beans
Nutrients: Apart from proteins,high in Vitamin A,C,K and folate
Ingredients: 1tsp savory herb seasoning (herbamare or italian seasoning or curry spice), 2 tbspns lemon juice, 2tbspns olive oil plus extra for garnish, 1/4th tspn salt, 2 cups string beans, sprig parsley for garnish
– Stir together seasoning, lemon juice and salt
– Place string beans in a large mixing bowl and pour the sauce to coat the beans
– Marinate for 3 hrs at room temperature or leave overnight
– [Alternately, the author suggests, put the beans in a dehydrator for 2 hrs at 110 F]
– Serve at room temperature with a drizzle of olive oil & a sprig of parsley
To sum it up I would say: Eating wholesome without cooking is awesome and the author Mike Snyder provides a variety of options for the same. Finally while the book is about raw vegan cooking it is not just for vegans! Healthy snacks, juices and meal options that are easy-breezy make me one happy Mom!
