Sushi has always been my favorite food pre-raw. Especially avocado sushi! So i was determined to recreate it in a familiar way. I have never seen hemp used in a raw vegan recipe as an alternative to rice (perhaps because it's quite expensive) but the taste and the appearance are wonderfully similar, and it's great for you! These could not have been more successful at satisfying my craving.
This salad is filling and also very easy to make. The ingredients were all things I happened to have in my fridge. The macadamia oil can be substituted for any other type of oil but I really like how the macadamia flavor goes with the other ingredients.
The flavour of this dip reminds me of Mucver (pronounced MOOSH-vair), the zucchini fritters often served in a mixed vegetarian kebab or as an entree in Turkish restaurants.
Perfect with celery sticks, cucumber slices or flax crackers, delicious with salad stuffed into a large leaf of romaine and great on their own as a soup if you add a little extra water.
What better time to share this simple salad recipe then when the farmer’s markets, roadside stands, and grocery stores (if you must!), are brimming with tender ears of sweet corn. I created this recipe last year after learning from a local farmer that you can eat sweet corn raw without it ever touching a grill or a pot of boiling water. I was able to convert many naysayers last summer, and now it’s time for me to make a believer out of you!
