Roast Sweet Potato stuffed with chickpeas and cashew sour cream

Imogen Taylor - Tuesday, August 29, 2017
Sometimes when I've been eating out alot (like when on holiday), I long for wholesome home cooking made with love and extra care; anticipating those who will share in the meal, and the pleasure this will bring.

I have roasted some sweet potatoes while preparing the burghul wheat (cooked in vegetable stock), sautéeing the leeks and garlic, cooking the chickpeas and toasting the pumpkin seeds. I made the sour cream a couple of days ago (always good to have this vegan dairy-free cheese in the fridge).

It's a little fiddly but if you love cooking; it's like therapy really!!

What are you having for dinner?

Zoodle salad with cashew sauce and raw parmesan crisps

Imogen Taylor - Thursday, December 22, 2016


The raw food diet is just so exciting; and the benefits to our health go without saying.

Can you imagine how the body must appreciate food that is still "living"?! (has a pulse? lol)

And if the ingredients are organic; your chances of a rich vitamin/mineral intake are splendid!

This Zoodle salad comprises raw zucchini noodles, a cashew-based sauce, rocket, activated almonds, and basil-pinenut "parmesan" crisps.

All vegan; all raw; all plant-based.

What's not to love?



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!!
