Weekly Menu #9

By Fredrica Syren:

We’re really enjoying eating lots of homegrown vegetables right now and all our meals are served with raw vegetables or salads on the side. This week we’re starting off with a holiday and we’re planning a Labor Day BBQ with friends and we’ll have chickpea burgers with all the trimmings. For dessert I will make a raw strawberry cake that is so amazing and really celebrates berries. Vegan crab cakes is my husband’s favorite and is a recipe from Kris Carr’s cookbook and the ramen is from another vegan food blogger’s recipe. We have a loads of tomatoes growing in our garden so I’m planning to make a tomato soup with them.
