My Name Is Spice

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..
