Raw Vegan Food
With tomatoes in abundance at the farmers’ markets, it’s the perfect time to make your own sun-dried tomatoes! It’s easy to do in your oven or food dehydrator, and you’ll have a bit of summer’s sweetness to take into the Fall. Yellow sungolds are the sweetest, purple cherry tomatoes add a depth of color, and standard cherry tomatoes have the tang and acidity with which you’re likely the most familiar. You can also use standard full-size tomatoes as well to make “tomato chips!”

We are excited to bring you the amazing story behind founder Brad Gruno’s journey into raw and his passion for bringing healthy snacks to America. Thank you Brad, we LOVE your chips!
