Courgette & Avocado Raw Vegan Dinner

I'm not a raw vegan, neither can I call myself a vegetarian because although I don't eat or cook meat at home, I will on the odd occasion order chicken meals when out for a meal.  I am however trying to improve my overall health and eating a lot more vegetables is a part of that.

I attended a conference over the weekend at which their was a screening of a documentary entitled 'Urban Kyrptonite - African Roots foreign diseases'  the documentary spoke a lot about the dangers of animal products and the benefits of Vegan eating, we were also given a raw vegan meal from a company called R.O.A.R, which tasted lovely.  This inspired me to try out my own raw vegan meal at home.

I searched the internet and eventually decided to come up with my own adaptation on a meal that incorporated my favourite vegetables. 


2 Avacados
1 courgette
1 lemon
3 cloves of garlic chopped
1/2 an onion sliced
6 cherry tomatoes sliced
1 1/2 teaspoons of mixed herbs
1 teaspoon of black pepper
salt to taste
2 chili peppers sliced
1 cube of ginger grated


Peel the avocado and place in the food processor along with the garlic, mixed herbs, black pepper and the juice from the lemon (you may want to use half a lemon as the flavour can be strong.) 

Using a julienne peeler or spiralizer peel your courgettes so that they are spaghetti like.  

Once that is done transfer them, the remaining ingredients and the avocado mixture into a large bowl.  Mix together and serve with other vegetables or salad.

And there you have it, a tasty, easy to prepare raw vegan meal.
