My Name Is Spice

Wholemeal Chapattis with homemade vegan coriander pesto

Imogen Taylor - Saturday, December 17, 2016

This was a cheat's dish since I bought the chapattis rather than making them; and had already made the pesto for something else..

Actually I was between meals and needed a snack (I don't really keep set meal times).

So all that was required was to prepare the cucumber ribbons, and a meal was at hand! Healthy eating is so easy if you keep a few spreads/pestos/marinades/spice-pastes in the fridge, ready to go



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..



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!!
