Vegan Strawberry Mousse

Imogen Taylor - Tuesday, July 26, 2016

 How to make mousse without dairy, gluten or eggs:    


RECIPE FOR TWO (Date Night)!

For the biscuit Base: 1/2 cup cashew nuts, 1/2 cup dates (don't soak them if you want a chewy base - YUM),  1 tablespoon golden linseed, 1 heaped tbsp coconut oil. 

Put the base ingredients into the food processor except the coconut oil, Melt the coconut oil and allow it to cool somewhat before pouring into the food processor and blitzing with the other ingredients till you have an amalgamated mixture.

Place the mixture in the glasses.



For the mousse: 1 large banana, 7 good size strawberries washed, 2/3 cup silken tofu, 1/3 cup maple syrup, 1/2 cup coconut oil  

Melt the coconut oil in a small pot and put aside to cool. Put the banana, the de-stemmed strawberries and the tofu in the blender and blitz. Add the maple syrup and repeat (blitzing that is). Once the coconut oil has cooled (but before it starts setting) add it to the blender and blitz to combine all the ingredients till smooth.



Pear parsnip and carrot salad with toasted sesame seeds

Dishes like this make me fall in love with veggies all over again; I love plants!!!

I have shaved the parsnip and the carrot, and roasted them in the oven till crispy. Then served them with pear, radish, red onion and organic rocket on a bed of grains; quinoa, amaranth, buckwheat and lentils (actually an organic soup mix).. What a cocophony!! But it was outrageously good..


Beetroot carpaccio with walnut cheese quenelles and microgreens

Imogen Taylor - Sunday, July 24, 2016



These were great fun to make. I have marinated the beetroot slices (use a mandolin), then quenelled the walnut/cashew cheese and sat them on top of the beetroot carpaccio.

The walnut cheese is a variation on the cashew cheese which uses cashew nuts, lemon juice, a dash of miso paste plus some nutritional yeast, salt and pepper. To this I add equal quantity walnuts to cashews. If the "cheese" is too tart; add a squirt of maple syrup to balance the flavour..

Garnish with micro-greens. Wonderful vegan finger food!!
