I've Been in the Kitchen

I know it seems lately that I have been lacking in the food/recipe post and I am sorry! I have been working on recipes from a number of cookbooks as well as testing recipes for Happy Herbivore’s upcoming cookbook. I will be posting some more cookbook reviews including pictures of various dishes and well be having 2 cookbook giveaways – one of them a raw recipe book! So look for these in the upcoming weeks.

Kombucha

So I am really interesed in Kombuncha and everything it claims to offer however I just can’t get over the rotten taste it leaves in your mouth.  It just taste like rotten fruit/vegetables (which it is in a way since it is fermented) but it’s hard to get down.  I find myself chugging it when I do drink it and I appreciate the sparkling aspect of it as this helps in distracting my mind as the rotting beverages slides down my throat but who knows maybe I just haven’t found my flavour yet and I think I definitly took a bigger risk this time with the multi-green which is essentially kombucha and green algae.  Anyone have any favourites I should try? I’ve tired a guava one that wasn’t bad but otherwise that’s it.

 

 

On another note last night was a yummy dinner of Ani Phyo’s raw shiitake miso soup which I was skeptical about considering the large amount of olive oil involved but it was delicious.  We also had a sprouts and cabbage salad with sweet miso dressing from Everyday Raw which was delicious- made from white miso, raw tahini, lemon juice and water soooooooo good.
