It will stay in my food-memory for a long time!

this is a broccoli, kale, lentil and mushroom soup. (oh and sweet potato)! Served with Indian chapattis. 🍃🌿😍 Vegan, delicious and good for you!Save





Raw Nut Tarts with a citrus avocado cream and zoodles

Imogen Taylor - Tuesday, August 16, 2016

Amongst all my raw food dishes; these nut tarts are my favourite - second only to the RAW PIZZA!


They are great fun to make; the base is raw hazelnuts, almond flour, flaxseed, flakey yeast, and olive oil blitzed together in a food processor.

Plus a smidgeon of miso paste for that extra "umami" flavour. The filling is avocado with lime juice, and a drop of maple syrup..

On top I have placed some zucchini noodles (zoodles), mixed in a bowl with kale leaves; both are tossed in a cashew and capsicum dressing.


One is not enough!

Here is another tart on a different occasion; this time I used some semi-dried tomatoes which I dehydrated at the same time as the tart bases..



Vegan vermicelli salad with capsicum and roasted peanuts

Imogen Taylor - Friday, August 12, 2016

A vegan diet has as many permutations as a meat and dairy diet; if you just have the imagination! I like to have a look at what I've got available - usually in the vege department; then build a meal idea around that.

This is when the shopping list comes out..



This was an exciting salad because it's really just an "interrupted" bowl of luscious greens; interrupted by the noodles, capsicum, cucumber, fresh herbs and peanuts that is!

Then I made a lime-based Thai dressing; and Bob's your uncle! (I do wonder where that expression came from)?
