Well, here in Toronto, summer has finally made an appearance! At the end of May, it's finally warming up. It's times like these that we start to include fresh, straight from the farm produce in our meals and spend as little time as we can on prepping a meal so we can enjoy the weather more. That being said I do plan to spend a lot of my time day dreaming and planning while lying on the grass under a shade tree this summer. Here's an easy raw and vegan recipe Nida brings to us from Noshtopia to celebrate the arrival of summer. W.P
I LOVE SUMMER. Primarily because of all the fresh, crunchy, cool, vibrant, delicious and cool vegetables! I especially LOVE roaming farmers markets. Here in Virginia, we are lucky to have access to many farms and farmers markets including Pollyface farms (featured in the critically acclaimed and well received documentary Food Inc.) J L Green Farm (trained by Joel Salatin of Pollyface).
Every year we venture to a local town nearby such as Middleburg, Berkley Springs, Harpers Ferry, Shenandoah; these areas have made an effort to maintain the integrity of their towns by preserving their heritage, disallowing commercialized companies to set up shop and staying true to their farming history. Its always so much fun and soul fulfilling to shop at their farmers markets! So when i came across this recipe, i knew its going to be like an amazing adventure just being able to know what to look for and find for this heaven in a bowl :) Straight from mother earth to us.
