It’s a requirement for those born in the Pacific Northwest to grow up eating fresh salmon. Salmon in eggs, salmon in pasta, salmon steaks, salmon salad, you name it. I was lucky in that respect. But it also means that—now, on a raw food diet—I crave salmon more often than other raw foodists might. The solution: A raw, vegan salmon-less spread that parallels the real deal in both taste and consistency.
This recipe is by far, my favorite raw macaroon recipe ever; not too chewy, not too sweet, and just the right texture. The combination of coconut with maple syrup and vanilla chai spice will satisfy any sweet tooth, and gives the classic macaroon a sassy raw vegan twist.
