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. 



Ingredients:

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

Method:

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.
