My Name Is Spice

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!!
