The Rawtarian’s Thoughts

A dollop of raw mashed “potatoes” on your plate turns an everyday meal into a festive feast!  And, yes, that’s cauliflower masquerading as potatoes since eating raw potatoes is a no-no. 🙂

This is a simple cauliflower-based mashed potato recipe that adds a nice heartiness to a fresh meal.

Use these raw mashed ‘taters as part of a holiday feast or just treat yourself with a nice hearty serving of mashed potatoes for a fun weeknight dinner. I recently enjoyed these mashed cauliflower-based “potatoes” with a large green salad and traditional style corn (just chop some raw corn off a cob and you’ve got a side-serving of corn)–served all on one plate I felt like I was at Grandma’s — raw style of course!


Laura-Jane is The Rawtarian,laura a passionate raw vegan. What is a “raw vegan?” A raw vegan is someone who eats only raw fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds–none of which are ever heated above 105F (40.6 Celsius). That’s it. Raw vegan recipes include cookies, brownies, cakes, crackers, macaroni and cheese, cheesecake, and more. All made from fruit, vegetables, seeds, and nuts. No bread products, no dairy products, just raw, natural ingredients! There is a whole movement of “raw vegans” (or “raw fooders”) who invent and share creative raw food recipes. Raw vegans prepare recipes using blenders and food processors instead of ovens and microwaves! ”Like” The Rawtarian on Facebook, and visit her for more great recipe ideas at therawtarian.com
