Raw Vegan Maple Beet and Carrot Salad

Raw Vegan Maple Beet and Carrot Salad

Lunch just isn’t complete without a delicious main course that fills you up, satisfies you and keeps you craving for more.

That is what I discovered one day by pulling whatever I had out of my refrigerator and creating this specific raw vegan salad.

After finishing your portion, you’ll want more!


Prep time:  approx. 10-15 mins





2 carrots, grated

3 small beets, grated

2 teaspoons of raw sunflower seeds

2 teaspoons of raw pumpkin seeds



1 garlic clove, finely chopped

1 tablespoon of maple syrup

1 tablespoon of lemon juice

1 tablespoon of hemp oil

1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar

Dash of nutmeg

Dash of sea salt





First, prepare the salad dressing.

If you can make it ahead of time, it would be best so the flavours become absorbed by the oil.

Set aside.  Grate the carrots and the beets.

Mix well.  Add the toppings – sunflower seeds, pumpkins seeds (you can replace those with any nuts you want, including peanuts, but I recommend pecan halves).

Optional: sprinkle a dash of dill, chipotle and/or smoked papikra, nutritional yeast and mustard powder.


Serve with a side – or on top of – lettuce, with an assortment of veggies (shown here with crimini mushrooms).

Have you ever had a dream of eating dessert for breakfast?  Well, with this recipe, you can!  Follow these easy, breezy steps and you will be in heaven in no time!  This creamy pudding is delicious as a real dessert as well.


Preparation time:  5 mins.



1 ripe avocado

1 medium banana

2 tablespoons of dark cherry juice concentrate

1 teaspoon of pure lemon juice (if you buy bottled, read the ingredients carefully – many contain lemon oil and pack on the calories)

1 tablespoon of pure maple syrup (swap for agave or raw sugar if you want a fully raw breakfast)

½ cup chocolate milk alternative (both soy and almond work great here; make your own to ensure it is raw)

Optional: teaspoon of raw cocoa powder, dash of nutmeg, goji berries, teaspoon of raw sesame seeds, pinch of saffron



Peel and chop the avocado and the banana.

Put in blender.

Add the juices, the sweetener and the milk alternative (along with the teaspoon of cocoa powder if you wish to add one) and blend well.

Pour into a bowl and top with your choice of ingredients.  I recommend a dash of nutmeg, a teaspoon of sun dried goji berries, a teaspoon of raw sesame seeds and a sprinkle of saffron.

Who said eating a vegan breakfast had to be hard.

With this raw vegan recipe you’ll have a breakfast that others will envy.
