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?



Raw Quiche Tarts with marinated vegetables

Imogen Taylor - Saturday, December 17, 2016

Dehydrated Raw Quiche Tart! I bet you thought if you were vegan; your days of quiche-munching were over?

This is not only vegan, but also raw; and topped with marinated vegetables. 😆🙏😍👍🏾Save



These are all set for the dehydrator. The filling is a raw macadamia cheese; and on top are the mushrooms, tomatoes and courgettes which have been marinating in salt and extra virgin olive oil; so simple!

As you can see; everything intensifies in the dehydrator - both the colour, and the flavour (you'll have to take my word for the latter LOL)

Yummy yum Yummmm


(These tarts were in the dehydrator for 12 hours..)

Here you can see what the dehydration process does to the "cheese" and the marinated vegetables. This was really an uber-delicious dish...


Recipe from Shokuiku Academy online RAW FOOD COURSE.


Raw lasagne on a bed of beetroot puree with almond crumb

Imogen Taylor - Sunday, July 24, 2016

I always enjoy assembling a RAW lasagne! And so super easy if you have the cashew cheese and the sundried tomato-romesco puree made up in advance. I even added some radish sprouts and some of yesterday's almond crumb; so it's a lively variation on the classic!!

Almond crumb consists of almonds combined with nutritional yeast, lemon juice, herbs and capers. Extremely tasty!


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!!
