My Name Is Spice

Raw coconut chutney.

Imogen Taylor - Thursday, December 22, 2016


Here is the recipe for this raw coconut chutney. I have served it on chunky slices of cucumber nestled in spinach leaves🌿🍃🌱

Recipe: First you blitz a whole lemon plus quater of an onion. Then add 1 cup of coconut (which should be soaked in water overnight). Add 1 tsp each of cumin-seed and mustard-seed, a pinch of salt and half a de-seeded red chilli.

Now add 1 bunch of mint, and a bunch of fresh coriander or any other herbs you have in abundance.

Add a little water and continue to blitz in the blender. I like to add 4 dates to this but check for flavour before you do this.


Once it is thoroughly amalgamated; form into quenelles and place on top of the cucumber slices for a cool, refreshing Summer treat!


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!!
