Chia Fruit Salad

By Raw Chef Siegren Johnson (TruCuisine.com)


1 Banana, sliced

1 Apples, diced

1 Orange, sliced

1/2 Cup of fresh pitted cherries

1/2 Cup of shredded, unsweetened, dried coconut

1/4 Cup of dried, unsweetened cranberries

Chia Dressing :

1 1/2 Tablespoons Chia seeds

Juice of one Meyer lemon

3 Tablespoons Coconut Nectar or Agave

Combine all salad ingredients, set aside.

Stir together dressing ingredients, then let stand for 2 or 3 minutes to thicken slightly.

Pour the mixture over the salad and toss gently.

Fresh fruit and sweet shredded coconut tossed in a tart Chia seed dressing; this raw dish is one of my family’s favorite morning treats. Not only is this meal packed with vitamins and energy, it also has protein, fiber, omega 3 EFA’s, calcium, and antioxidants from the Chia seed. Truly a delicious balanced breakfast!

Zucchini Hummus

By Raw Chef Siegren Johnson (TruCuisine.com)


One medium zucchini (about a cup)

½ cup of raw tahini

Juice of half a large lemon

½ tablespoon of ground cumin

One teaspoon Celtic sea salt

2 tablespoons of cold pressed olive oil

2 garlic cloves


In a food processor, combine all ingredients. If hummus consistency is too thin, let the mixture set in the fridge for 10 to 15 minutes.

I chose to share this raw recipe because of its versatility. It can be served with crudités or flax chips and is also great when used in wraps. Best of all, it’s completely bean & nut free! This hummus is always a hit at parties and family functions. Enjoy!
