Raw Vegan Pizza
This pizza is as as easy and as healthy as it gets!!
1. Start with a raw grain-free wrap. I love Wrap it Up Raw! wraps which are made right here in Ontario.
2. Spread your raw wrap with a generous serving of Fauxmagerie Zengarry Sun Dried Tomato and Basil cashew cheese.
3. Top your wrap with your favourite fresh veggies and you are all set!! We used colourful bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, red onion and avocado.
And the bonus- it only takes about 5 minutes to make!
Easy Raw Vegan Sushi Rolls
3-4 nori sheets
1 package Fauxmagerie Zengarry Garlic & Fine Herbs cashew cheese
1 ripe avocado, sliced
1/2 a cucumber, thinly sliced
1 mango, thinly sliced
1 handful of pea shoots
Lay a nori roll out on a bamboo sushi rolling mat. Spread the nori sheet with Zengarry vegan cheese.
Top the cheese with a layer of thinly sliced cucumbers.
Create a line of the remaining veggies along the bottom edge of your nori sheet.
Roll your sushi up in the sushi rolling mat and give it a little squeeze inside the roll.
Unroll the mat and place the sushi roll on a cutting board. Cut the roll into 4-6 pieces.
Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Serve with pickled ginger if you like!
Raw Vegan Lasagna
2 ripe tomatoes
1 package Fauxmagerie Zengarry Sundried Tomato & Basil cashew cheese
1/2 cup pesto with scapes and spinach (see recipe below)
Nutritional yeast and pine nuts for garnish

Raw Vegan Sundried Tomato and Basil Creamy Zoodles
4 small zucchinis (peeled if you like)
1/2 cup Zengarry Sundried Tomato and Basil cashew cheese
3 Tbsp. almond milk
3 Tbsp. chopped sundried tomatoes
2 green onions, thinly sliced
Handful of cherry tomatoes, halved
2 Tbsp. fresh basil chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
Micro greens for garnish (optional)
Use a spiralizer to make zucchini noodles (zoodles) or use a vegetable peeler to make long thin strands if you don't have a spiralizer. Place zoodles in a large bowl.
Whisk together the Zengarry Sundried Tomato & Basil cashew cheese and almond milk in a small bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Pour cheese sauce over the zoodles.
Add tomatoes, basil and green onions. Toss gently, being careful not to break all the zoodles.
Garnish with micro greens and freshly ground pepper and serve immediately. Serves 2.
Raw Vegan Beetroot Ravioli
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 garlic clove finely minced or grated
1 tsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
Freshly ground black pepper
2 large beets, peeled and sliced into paper-thin rounds
1 package Zengarry Garlic & Fine Herbs Cashew Cheese
To prepare beets, combine olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and salt and pepper to taste in a bowl. Add sliced beets and marinate for at least 1 hour to overnight.
Lay half the beets on a flat surface. Using a spoon, scoop 1 tablespoon Zengarry Garlic & Fine Herbs cashew cheese in the center of each beet slice. Cover cheese with another sliced beet to complete ravioli.
Garnish with chives, balsamic vinegar, sea salt, and pepper, if desired. Serves 3-4.
