Love for Get it Ripe and her Raw Pudding

Smooth and creamy, with all the fat

I recently couldn’t wait anymore. I wasn’t sure what I was waiting for, time to go through other cookbooks, a birthday, pure procrastination? I gave into temptation and bought Get it Ripe and I am really enjoying it. I had to have it because Jae sounds just like me. Or who I think I am. She knows how to grow food, cook food and is a holistic nutrionist (the latter of which I am not, but I am fascinated with nutrition). The first half of the book is nutrition and advice and information about veganism and she talks in such a non-judgemental manner that it’s a pleasure to read (although being yelled at by the Skinny Bitch girls made me laugh). The second half of the book is recipes that I look forward to making. I have a number of cookbooks for different reasons, like VWAV is my comfort food book. I’m not sure where Get it Ripe stands yet but it’s definitely winning a place in my heart. The Southern Bowl dish with chipotle black eyed peas and maple mashed sweet potatoes made me swoon. The raw pudding was a fun adventure. My only advice is to get an avocado that is ripe, NOT overripe. My pudding had great texture and flavor but the old avocado aftertaste was not cool.

    Mmmmmmm pudding….I’ve heard nothing but great things about this book. I’m glad you treated yourself to it.
    Oooh Audrey 3 is doing fantastic by the way. She has happily survived the winter and has lots of new shoots growing. All I need to do is get her a companion. I’ve got 7 or 8 pips going at the moment and one of them is just starting to shoot so hopefully this will be her new friend. I’ll keep you posted.
