This may come as a surprise but we can still have soft warm vegetables on a raw vegan diet. Not only does this dish look cooked it tastes as if it’s cooked as well. The marinade process is very important to the flavor you will receive. I like to marinate mine overnight to ensure maximum flavor. But if you’re short on time, you can always marinade for 1 to 4 hours.
You can also get creative with the vegetables you would like to add. If you don’t have something on hand swap it out for something that you do. There’s no mistakes when it comes to veggies. Everything you need is listed below to make raw vegan marinated vegetables. Enjoy!
Raw Vegan Marinated Vegetables
1 head of cauliflower cut in bite sized pieces
1 cup broccoli cut in bite sized pieces
5 carrots sliced 1/4 in thick
1 red pepper cut in strips
1 green pepper cut in strips
1 small red onion diced
10 mushrooms halved
2 garlic cloves minced
juice of 2 lemons
1/3 cup nama shoyu
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp dried rosemary
1/4 tsp dried marjoram
raw hemp seeds (added protein)
Add all vegetable in a bowl and stir or toss with hands to combine.
Whisk together all marinade ingredients and pour over the vegetables and toss again.
Now, I like to marinade mine overnight but you’re trying to get this done in one day shoot for at least 1 hour. But I find you can wake up in the morning and do the next step and have everything ready for lunch or an early dinner… depending on what time you wake up.
Place all veggies on dehydrator trays and dehydrate at 115° for 4-6 hours. Give them a taste at anytime to get your desired texture.
Don’t have a dehydrator? You can eat this as is or use an oven on the lowest setting with the door cracked!
Serve warm from the dehydrator or chilled. Great both ways!
