Ligia’s Kitchen: a raw vegan dessert from whipped cream and blackberries

In this episode, Ligia makes a quick and delicious dessert from raw vegan whipped cream and blackberries, sweetened with Green Sugar, an all-natural powdered sweetener made from stevia, with none of the stevia after-taste.

Sources of vegan protein

I get asked quite often how I get my protein as a vegan (raw vegan). First of all, if your diet is diversified enough, you’ll get plenty of protein from the foods that you eat, but if you also work out and you want to add extra protein, here are the sources that I’ve tried.

In the order they appear in the video, these sources of vegan and raw vegan protein are:

Ligia’s Kitchen: A raw vegan spaghetti dish

Ligia’s Kitchen: Raw hummus from sunflower seeds

Here’s a raw vegan hummus recipe prepared by my lovely wife from sunflower seeds. I can assure you, as usual, that it’s delicious. She’s made it for us many times. Enjoy!

Here’s a short and easy recipe for raw vegan tzatziki, which is a great summer appetizer:

Ligia’s Kitchen: Raw Mint Ice Cream

We published the eighteenth episode of Ligia’s Kitchen today. It’s a delicious and refreshing summer recipe: mint ice cream, made from raw cashews and fresh mint, handpicked from our own garden.

This episode marks a first for me. It’s the first edited with Final Cut Pro X, the new version of FCP. I figured the best way to learn it was to jump right in and do some work, and this eighteenth episode is the result.

Ligia’s Kitchen: A raw zucchini spaghetti dish

We published the seventeenth episode of Ligia’s Kitchen tonight. It’s an already popular recipe of Ligia’s, loved by all who try it at her culinary demonstrations. It’s already been featured on national TV in Romania, several times, so we thought it was high time to film it for the show. It’s raw spaghetti, made from zuchinni, though any member of the squash family will do. Naturally, the spaghetti sauce is also raw.

Bon appetit!

Ligia’s Kitchen: Green Smoothie

We (Ligia and I) present episode 16 of Ligia’s Kitchen, published for your viewing pleasure late last night. It shows you how to make a nutritious green smoothie. The green smoothie is, of course, a basic raw vegan recipe, but one which is often prepared incorrectly. If the fruits and vegetables used as its ingredients aren’t properly selected, the wrong combinations might give you indigestion or flatulence… While most men enjoy a little potty humor, it’s never funny when others are laughing about us, so do take care to observe this recipe — or other well-known green smoothie recipes — properly.

There is one small correction to the video, which we only observed in the final editing step. It’s only noticeable for those who speak Romanian. Ligia says at one point we should “alter” the kinds of green leafy vegetables used in the green smoothie. What she meant to say was “alternate”, or switch between various kinds of leafy vegetables, so as to offer some needed variety in the taste of this daily drink.
