It’s called Twin Cakes Bakery…and they do gift baskets and mail order, so if you want to treat yourself to goodies ranging from

Yummmmmmmmy!!!!! So without further ado, here’s The Pure 2 Raw Twins’ Guest Post. Stay tuned for another separate, fun post for me coming right up!
We were honored when Averie asked us to do a guest post while she is away on vacation.
Here is a quick introduction of who we are.
We are the Pure2Raw Twins from www.pure2raw.com. We are two best friends who happen to be twin sisters. We both are high raw vegans who eat gluten free, peanut free, corn free, and soy free. Our blog is our journey through finding balance and good health through this ‘so called’ life as well owning own our business. Our bakery is called Twin Cakes Bakery, which is a gluten free, vegan, peanut free bakery, plus have our Pure2Raw product line. Pure2raw is where we love to share our passion for fitness, health, plus baking and unbaking away in the kitchen : ) We enjoy running and our newest passion is yoga. Averie has been very inspirational to us both!
Yep here is a never fail, 20 minute recipe that we hope it will become a staple in your kitchen. We know a lot of people (like us) that can’t eat this or that for whatever reason miss childhood classics, so here is our remake of one with a healthy twist!!
Pure2raw Twins Recipe:
One Pot Gluten Free Vegan Mac-n-Cheese
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup quinoa
In small saucepan over high heat bring the water to a boil. Once boiling and quinoa and return to a boil. Then reduce heat to low and let simmer for 15 minutes
*There might be some water left over, but that is okay.
Remove from heat and pour the quinoa into a bowl and set aside.
Step 2: The cheezy sauce
- ¾ cup coconut milk
- 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
- 2 tbsp tahini
- 2 tbsp arrowroot
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- ½ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp garlic powder
Using the same pot that the quinoa was in, place it back on the stovetop over medium heat and add coconut milk and tahini. Whisk together. The tahini will melt into the milk. Then add remaining ingredients and whisk. Raise the heat to be medium high. It will start to thicken, takes about 1-2 minutes. Once it starts getting thick pour the quinoa back in the pot and stir till well combined.
And you done. : )
Have fun and add your favorite seasonings, we added a pinch of smoked paprika and 1 tsp parsley.
Thank you again to Averie for letting us be a guest post ; ) We hope we have inspired you all to try something new. If you are really adventurous, you could try stirring in a nut butter (instead or in addition to the tahini), if you have an open mind the possibilities are endless!! Have fun in the kitchen : )
Thank you to all of Love, Veggies,and Yoga readers for allowing the twins into your lives, take care!
The Pure2Raw Twins,
Lori and Michelle
