When in Berlin: Raw Vegan Eats and Treats

For the last two summers, I was so happy to get the opportunity to spend some time in the beautiful and green city of Berlin. With the glorious architecture and many gorgeous parks full of awe-inspiring trees, herbs, berries, calming bodies of water (yes, there is even a park with a magnificent waterfall running through it) and organic grocery stores at every corner, it’s hard to surpass Berlin in its environmentally conscious, animal-friendly, vegan mentality. I would like to share with you three of my favorite places to eat, have coffee or tea, or enjoy a delicious dessert. You won’t be disappointed!

 

Rawtastic

Danziger Str. 16, 10435 Berlin

This is a raw vegan’s dream come true! All of your favorite dishes, including raw pizza, yummy soups, sarma, kelp noodles, rolls and wraps, cheese platters, crapes, and incredibly delicious desserts – a must visit for any raw vegan and impossible to disappoint.

My pick: any of their delicious raw pizzas and desserts

Hope Superfood Deli

Akazienstraße 28, 10823 Berlin

I was so lucky to have this gem right in my neighborhood during my stay in Berlin. This delightful deli offers some raw vegan eats such as smoothies, juices, and a yummy zucchini noodle bowl, but what tops my list are the unbeatable raw desserts. If you are in Schoneberg and are in the mood for dessert and coffee or tea, this cozy and friendly spot on one my favorite streets in Berlin is for you!

My pick: raw chocolate truffles and any of the raw vegan cakes

Frida Cafe

Graefestrasse 75,Β 10967 Berlin

If you are in Kreuzberg, don’t miss this beautiful charming oasis of a cafe on another one of my favorite streets in Berlin. Frida Cafe is a sanctuary, where you can read, write your next book, chat with friends, or just daydream. It’s a poet’s dream! Although there are many vegan options, there is one raw vegan dish (or you can ask for them to make it raw) called the Superfood bowl which is a half of a cantaloupe filled with berries, chia seeds, granola, and vegan yogurt. They have incredible coffee and tea too!

My pick: Superfood bowl

Raw Vegan Baklava

IMG_20170612_123937

Crust (3 layers):

– ripe bananas
– coconut oil
– vanilla extract or powder
– cinnamon

Filling:

– walnuts, soaked
– dates, soaked (keep date water for the syrup) or date paste
– cinnamon
– clove (optional)
-sea salt

Pour-over Syrup:

– lemon juice
– date water or date paste dissolved in water

Blend bananas, coconut oil, cinnamon, and vanilla together and pour the batter on dehydrator sheets.

Shape the batter into a desired shape making sure that it is not too thin. Make three shapes for three baklava layers.

Dehydrate the layers at 113F for about 10 hours or until the layers are easily peeled off.

To make the filling, combine soaked walnuts with soaked dates (or date paste) and cinnamon (use twice as much walnuts as dates by volume) and pulse in a blender or food processor until the walnuts are finely chopped.

Place the first baklava layer on the bottom of a pie pan.

Add half of the filling you made and spread evenly.

Place the second layer on top and add rest of the filling.

Cover the filling with the last layer.

Cut the baklava into smaller pieces resembling diamonds.

Make the pour-over syrup by combining lemon juice with date water (or dissolve date paste in lemon juice and water). Pour the syrup over the pre-cut baklava.
Pour as much of the syrup as the baklava can absorb.

Enjoy at room temperature or chilled in the fridge. The longer the baklava stays in the fridge, the more its flavors will develop.

This is my parents’s favorite raw vegan dessert recipe! I don’t blame them – it’s yummy, richly sweet, and extremely satisfying. πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜‹πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—

Raw Vegan Heart-Opening Coconut Cookies

IMG_20170521_123138

Something to cheer you up for today! πŸ™ŒπŸŽ€πŸŽͺπŸŽ·πŸ’›

Ingredients:

– coconut pulp
– dates
– coconut oil

Flavors:

– cacao powder
– cinnamon
– vanilla powder or extract
– lime juice

Preparation:

Soak dried coconut flakes in water overnight.

Blend the soaked flakes and take out the coconut milk (you can use the milk for tea, chia pudding, coffee, and in many other ways).

Mix the coconut pulp with coconut oil and soaked processed dates until the mixture has a dough consistency.

Add cacao powder, or cinnamon, or vanilla, or lime juice and mix it in well.

Shape the mixture in the form of a heart.

You can eat the cookies right away or you can freeze them to solidify them more or you can dehydrate them for about 7 hours at 113F. I prefer to dehydrate them because they have the perfect consistency and are solid at room temperature.

So simple but so tasty! πŸ˜†πŸŒŸπŸŽ‰
