Easy, Affordable Raw: How to Go Raw on $10 a Day
Raw Garlic and Chives Cream Cheese Spread
This garlicky spread goes great on any cracker or wrap and can be slightly thinned with water, almond milk, or flax milk to make a fabulous vegetable dip.
Nutrition FYI: Chives and Garlic
Chives and garlic are members of the allium family. They contain antioxidants known as thiosulfinites, which convert to allicin. Allicin has been shown to reduce cholesterol and is anti viral, anti bacterial, and anti-fungal. It also reduces blood pressure and increases elasticity in blood vessels.
In a food processor fitted with an “S” blade, process the cashews, water, and probiotic powder until very smooth. This may take several minutes depending on your machine. Pour into a lidded container and allow to sit at room temperature for 24 hours. Add the remaining ingredients and stir to mix well. Store leftover spread in a lidded container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Yields 3 cups.
- 2 cups (290 g) cashews or almonds
- 1 cup (235 ml) water
- 1 teaspoon probiotic powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons (45 ml) lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons (30 g) nutritional yeast
- 2 teaspoons minced fresh garlic
- 3 tablespoons (9 g) chopped fresh chives

I'm not the best around the kitchen & I like time saving tips, so I am not spending hours trying to put together a meal ... especially for one person! This book is filled with many easy, affordable, & delicious snacks, meals, & desserts. I cannot wait to try my hand at making the nut cheeses! The ingredients for these recipes are available at your local grocery store (some depending on location &/or season) but there is nothing that requires you to hunt things down online or at specialty stores.
I am pleased with this purchase & look forward to creating many more of the recipes within!
I am very grateful for Lisa for sharing her recipes online and in this book.
I went raw vegan about four years ago to help me distinguish what food was giving me issues, overall it worked. Through many years of pain and stomach problems I found out on my own (something all my doctors missed) that I was lactose intolerant and had a dairy allergy.
Let me say that going raw vegan is very difficult, but it is totally worth it.
I lost 15lbs and I feel healthier and happier.
Currently I am not on a completely raw diet, but I like to incorporate many of the raw recipes found in this book into my regular meal plan.
I don't have a lot of time and I'm not the best cook (if you know what I mean)... this book is perfect because it has a ton of easy, affordable, and delicious meals (it has a lot of snacks and desserts too) with ingredients you don't have to hunt down in specialty stores. I also sometimes crave cooked food and there are some recipes in here that make you feel like you've had a really good, filling, cooked meal.
As a side note, my husband came over to the "green side" and is NO LONGER diabetic. The $400 he spent on insulin every month, is now going into our Caribbean vacation fund! Thank you Lisa!
