ABOUT THE CHEF

Brandi is the creator of the blog The Vegan 8. She has been a passionate cook for years, but it was her husband’s painful disease with gout that led her to choose a vegan lifestyle. She chose a healthier way of eating for her family that ignited a passion to create unique and delicious recipes that also happen to be vegan, gluten-free and oil-free. Her blog has become very popular, as it focuses on 8 ingredients or less, so anybody can make them with ease. Brandi believes in using nature’s powerful whole foods to nourish and promote a healthier body and a healthier mind. She enjoys creating food that everybody loves, whether vegan or not. Brandi’s belief is that food can be easy, use minimal ingredients, yet still be shockingly delicious.

This extremely easy-to-throw-together Fresh Raw Salsa combines tomatoes straight from the garden with onion, cumin, cilantro and lime juice as well as fresh jalapeno and chili powder for a delicious and heat-packed salsa. Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup chopped white or red onion
  • 1 1/2 heaping cups grape tomatoes (272 g or 1 pint, I used sweet brown grape and a few of the orange, use what you like)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon pink Himalayan sea salt
  • 1/4 cup packed cilantro (adjust to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh jalapeno (use less for minor heat, adjust to taste)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon fresh lime juice (don’t use lemon, it will change the taste)
  • 1 really large garlic clove, or 2 smaller ones, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon raw agave
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder (optional, but I love the extra flavor of heat and it assists in red color)
DIRECTIONS
  1. Add all of the ingredients to a food processor and blend until desired consistency.
  2. Serve either at room temperature or slightly heat up.
  3. Enjoy!

NOTES

Vegan, Gluten-free, Raw and Oil-free
This is the perfect amount of measurements to suit our taste, but feel free to adjust the lime juice or cilantro to your liking. With the tablespoon of fresh chopped jalapeno, it gives a nice kick to it without feeling overpowering. Feel free to adjust.
