One of the reasons I love making more elaborate dishes (apart from the creative joy of it) is the opportunity to incorporate beautiful and healing herbs into meals.

I made a few raw vegan pizzas for a family dinner the other day and it felt great to intentionally choose and incorporate medicinal plants that not just upped the deliciousness quotient of the meal, but its healing power as well.

The crust was a blend of raw fermented buckwheat and anti inflammatory omega 3 rich flax and chia seeds.

The sauce was a yummy and potent blend of red pepper, home sundried tomatoes made even more nutrient and healing rich with anti bacterial dried oregano, memory protective fresh rosemary, and garlic which is amazing for both the cardiovascular and immune systems.

The pizza cheese was raw fermented cashew cheese I made at home, full of probiotics to support the gut microbiome.

What are your current favorite medicinal herbs and how are you using them in your meals?

Bon appétit and to your health❤️
