This is a large sea veggie salad rich with wakame, spirulina, kelp, sesame seeds, sesame oil and locally grown greens, made into a sandwich by harnessing the power of large cabbage leaves (substituted for bread). Queer Vegan Food is all about crossing boundaries, transgressing social culinary norms and straddling multiple identity categories. With that in mind, I ask you to accept that this is not a salad, but rather a sandwich. Or call it whatever you will–make it, and I bet you’ll agree with me that it’s absolutely healthfully delicious!
Raw Vegan Cabbage-Sea Veggie Sandwich
3 cups chopped greens (I used kale and romaine)
1/2 cup chopped cabbage
1/2 cup pre-soaked wakame
1/4 cup nori strips (optional)
handful raw almonds (optional)
1/4 cup chopped plain tofu (optional)
2 tsp sesame seeds (optional)
1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1 Tbs spirulina
1-2 tsp olive oil or sesame oil
dash high-quality salt
dash kelp flakes
4-6 large/medium outer cabbage leaves
Toss all salad ingredients and mix in spirulina dressing in a large salad bowl. Use large cabbage leaves to make sandwiches out of the salad filling. Enjoy!

The marshmallow eggs were nothing I ever fancied and always found their way into the freezer for...
Salsa Casera or House Salsa is one of the simplest and most flavorful salsas that brings a robust heat and a smokey flavor from the charred tomatoes and chile peppers. Beware! I like heat and so this recipe has one dried Scorpion pepper added to the mix. Scorpion peppers are one of the hottest chiles in the world, with a mean heat of more than 1.2 million Scoville heat units (SHUs).
Adulting is hard stuff. Sure, there are the big things like taking care of kids or parents, unexpected car and home repairs, dealing with awful work situations, but sometimes the littlest things feel the most difficult. These days, one of my biggest dilemmas is finding what to feed myself in the mornings that is convenient, nourishing, and so tasty I’ll be psyched to eat it a few days a week. This...
