8 Reasons We’re Obsessed With Vegan Blogger Goth in the Raw

Also known as “The Morticia Addams of the Raw Vegan World,” longtime chef Adaora Osimiri-Lewis is the mysterious beauty behind the popular Goth in the Raw blog and Instagram account. Her gorgeous recipe photos have gained her a devout following among fans of raw and vegan food.

Her fondness for cooking, health, and gothic subculture developed around the same time. At age 16, she realized that being gothic doesn’t mean that you have to do dark, twisted things like eating dead animals. She’s been vegan ever since and has been following a raw-food diet for about six years.

"Now I pierce the darkness—new beings appear / The earth recedes from me into the night / I saw that it was beautiful / And I see that what is not the earth is beautiful…." – from "The Sleepers" by Walt Whitman.

We’re obsessed with her dark, sinister aesthetic and insanely delicious raw vegan recipes.

Let’s Go Goth:

1. The Nosferatu Pop is an ode to Dracula and includes dark cherries, cracked black peppercorn, lemon, lemon zest, and agave.

2. This black cashew cheese looks to-die-for.

I adore making cheese. My Raw Vegan Black Cashew Cheese has been made more times than I can count as it is the most requested when family and friends visit my cave or when I visit theirs. However, I also make vegan cheeses since my little ones do not yet have an affinity for raw vegan versions quite yet. Needless to say that my Vegan Black Garlic + Sage Cashew Cheese with a Black Lava Salt + Caraway Rind is a favorite in my dwelling. Tamarind, licorice and garlic notes balance well with the salt. Creamy and complex…and divine. The extra that I placed in a small bat bowl never made to the fridge as my toddlers snuck away with it and finished it off in the blink of an eye. It never stood a chance. | www.gothintheraw.com #highraw #rawfood #rawvegan #rawvegansofig #rawveganism #veganfood #rawveganfood #vegan #vegansofig #organic #plantbased #fullyraw #cleaneating #vegansofinstagram #whatrawveganseat #whatveganseat #vampyre #veganism #veganlifestyle #minimalist #goth #black #plantbasedlifestyle #cheese #cashew #foodstagram #instagood #instafoodie #gothintheraw

8. The Widow Fettuccine Alfredo features back garlic, shaved black trumpet mushrooms, and Brazil nut “parmesan.”
