Dairy-Free Delights Workshop - CLOSED

If you’re lactose intolerant, vegan or just want to avoid dairy products, almond milk, cashew cream, coconut milk, are all perfect substitutes for dairy milk and cream. In addition to their delicate nutty flavor and creamy texture, nuts/seeds are rich in protein, calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, copper, zinc and potassium. They also contain omega-3 fatty acids and other heart-healthy fats.

Sooo... Rawfully Tempting and Fit -n-Firm are teaming up to bring you a super fun, super educational workshop.

Perfect Pear Tart

I like this recipe even better than apple pie. With pears in season, the fruit is tender, sweet and juicy! It’s easy to prepare Irish Moss Paste in advance and freeze in cubes. Defrost, and you are ready to go. This recipe is actually pretty quick and easy. Give it a try...and comment below.

Sprouted Lentil "Rye" Crisps

I truly adore these light, crisp crackers with a nut or seed pate or humus. Growing up Jewish in "Joisey," I was raised on, and loved a really good Jewish Rye. The ground fennel seeds in this recipe work their magic, providing a tone so very reminiscent of this bread....and now...no gluten or processed junk to worry about.

Lentils and buckwheat are easy to sprout in a Mason jar, using sprouting lids. Click HERE for directions on sprouting buckwheat. Lentils take a bit longer, but don't need to be dehydrated.

Rawfully Tempting's Sensational Red Cabbage Slaw

Quick, easy, refreshing....delicious! I recently harvested an amazing batch of sunflower seed shoots and wanted to feature them in a salad that was a snap to prepare. Obviously, if you don't have sunflower shoots, you may use other sprouts...but I highly suggest giving them a shot, they are my favorite sprouts of all!!!

And That's a Wrap!!! - A Coconut Wrap(per)!!!

If you have a dehydrator and have access to young Thai coconuts...these are a breeze. If not, there are certainly other ways to make wraps, but I was focusing on quick and easy with the tools I have. Delicious and super light! Continue to dehydrate, and instead of a flexible wrap, you have a light, crunchy snack! Switch up seasoning and create something sweet, savory and/or spicy! The variations are limitless! I chose a Chipotle Wrap below...

Sweet Potato Latkes (Pancakes)


 I love creating healthy, raw vegan versions of recipes that are connected to "comfort foods" from my childhood. Potato Latkes were a favorite that mom used to cook up. They always make me feel happy, and  remind me of a connection to family when we all lived nearby and could celebrate together. With my mom just passing recently, I'm revisiting some of her Traditional Recipes, and challenging myself to make a raw version. SUCCESS! While they look a little dry, they are moist, chewy and full of flavor. Once you put the raw applesauce on top, they soften and rehydrate the outside of the pancake.  The onion flavor and texture tingle my taste buds and really remind me of Grammy's Latkes!
