Sure! I either make real rice seasoned with rice vinegar or just puree raw cauliflower with some rice vinegar if we're being really raw.

The inside is usually a mock salmon pate (2 c. raw walnuts, 2 scallions, 1 red pepper, 2 celery ribs and 1/4 tsp. sea salt in a food processor) and sprouts, or avacado and carrot, or sprouts, pea shoots and cucumber. We don't use a dipping sauce, but you could always use tamari or soy sauce. The vinegar does enough for me.

breakfast
Summer bread w/ peanut butter/dill pickles/tahini/jam (I know that sounds crazy but they were different combos on different pieces of bread )
blanched broccoli with carrots

lunch
leftover pasta with tomato-onion-carrot-pepper-fried bread sauce (that also might sound weird, but add the bread to the tomato sauce and let it cook together- trust me, it's delicious)
leftover pressed salad (lettuce, cucumber, dulse, wakame, orange-umeboshi vinegar dressing)
leftover collards

dinner
white rice
scrambled tofu with peas
raw salad
cauliflour
apple juice kuzu
handful of pistachios

one question: what is raw ice cream??

raw ice cream just means that none of the ingredients are cooked. My two favorites are: frozen bananas, vanilla bean, pecans, agave (or honey if you use that) and a pinch of salt for butter pecan ice cream, or: frozen banana, frozen strawberry, a handful of walnuts, a dash of vanilla and a pinch of salt topped with raw cacao nibs blended with coconut oil and agave for a raw vegan banana split. Yum. Frozen banana with coconut milk and almond extract is also really yummy. They are all healthful so you can feel les guilty about indulging!

My kid's favorite is a milkshake: coconut water and meat from a young coconut, almond butter, frozen banana, cinnamon, vanilla and a bit of agave.

That's just raw flax seeds, frozen corn, fresh oj, a splash of lime and sea salt. Then you dehydrate at 110 till crispy.

Breakfast was scrambled tofu from Vegan with a Vengeance and toast with jam.

Lunch was garlic pasta from the Compassionate Cook.

Dinner is going to be the lentil and rice bake that someone linked to somewhere in this forum. I bookmarked it and decided to try it tonight because we have all the ingredients!

Dessert is going to be Purely Decadent ice cream. I am so excited about this stuff. I have tried every brand I could find of soy/rice ice cream. I really really disliked it all. I thought I would never be able to have ice cream again. On a whim, yesterday I saw Purely Decadent Turtle Trails. It was SO good. It was creamy and delicious. So I went back to the store today and bought more of that kind, Peanut Butter Zigzag and Chocolate Brownie Almond. Yum!!

morning
the best pumpkin muffins (Vegan with a Vengeance) *
iced hibiscus high tisane **

afternoon
grapefruit
salad: baby greens w/ pine nuts & sesame-miso vinaigrette
black mission figs
Darjeeling (black) tea

evening
seitan portobello stroganoff (VwaV)
Frey - Cabernet Sauvignon

* "The best" indeed! I used the walnut variation and substituted agave nectar for cane sugar. I knew they wouldn't be quite as sweet, but they still came out sweeter than I thought they would - I could have used less agave. Next week, I'm getting poppy seeds so I can make Isa's lemon-poppyseed muffins.
** hibiscus, rosehips, lemongrass, orange peel, spearmint, rose petals, stevia

late morning (meeting/potluck)
apple chowder (my contribution)
hummus w/ carrots & cucumbers
espresso *

afternoon
ezekial bread w/ EB

evening (planned)
vegan eggplant "parmesan"

* The lack of sleep must have interfered with sense because I had the espresso after I already had a mild headache for two hours - mild turned to extreme throbbing for a couple hours afterward. Serves me right.

evening

* Ironically, we all were downtown for the Chinese New Year celebration, and there was vegan food at the Buddhist tent, but DD was getting overstimulated and fussy, so we needed to go somewhere quiet.

** The recipe was for BBQ pomegranate tofu, but I don't like BBQ flavor, so I just went for the pomegranate. I didn't have the pom molasses, so I just used 100% pomegranate juice (there's still some left - I may make pomegranate agar gel this week), but I added too much peanut butter to thicken it up, so I couldn't really taste the pomegranate much. It was still really good anyway - like pra ram from Thai restaurants.

** It's chilling in the fridge now. I don't hold out much hope for it, but at least it's just one of many ingredients in the lasagna.
