Cauliflower pizza crust with assorted toppings

Imogen Taylor - Sunday, July 24, 2016

Once you find a plant-based, gluten-free pizza crust recipe you like; the possibilities are endless. This one is made with raw cauliflower, activated buckwheat, linseed, and ground almonds. But i also make one with red capsicum, buckwheat, red onion, sundried tomatoes and chilli etc, which I top with tomatoes, olives and artichokes, for a more Mediterranean style pizza (see instagram post of 4th July).

Here you can see the spiralized courgettes and carrots, with lettuce leaves, avocado, chillis and radishes. Then adorned with the tasty-as-heck cashew dressing I use regularly ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜ (using cashews, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, miso, water and garlic). ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŒบโœŒ๐Ÿฟ๏ธ This base is designed for dehydrating but if you dont have the equipment you can bake it in the oven on low heat. On this occasion i cooked it at 180 degrees celcius and it is golden and crispy; friggin awesome!!!

Can you guess what this is? (hope i can answer my own question adequately)๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†

Short answer; vegan pizza. Long answer; gluten-free pizza base made with raw cauliflower, #activatedbuckwheat, linseed and ground almonds, with salt and pepper; made into a dough and rested overnight. i have cooked it for 15 to 20 minutes at 200 degrees celcius, then turned the oven to 150 degrees and cooked another 10 minutes till golden.

For the top; deep fried leaves from Brussels sprouts, as well as purple broccoli, shitake mushrooms and wild lettuces. Sprinkle with pinenuts! ๐Ÿ˜The dressing is the cashew cream from previous posts. (refer back for recipe) ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒฟโœŒ๐Ÿฟ๏ธ This pizza is like a walk through the forest (if you get my drift?!)๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐ŸŒพNB; ive always been heavy-handed with "sauce"!!! ๐Ÿ˜


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!!
