My Name Is Spice

Raw carrot cakes with cashew citrus icing served with fruit tea

Imogen Taylor - Saturday, December 17, 2016

I don't have much to compare these with cos i don't have a history of eating cakes and muffins; but i reckon these were fairly awesome!

The ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg contributed a little magic and alot of complexity.

Don't you just adore spices?


The icing is made with soaked cashews and loads of freshly squeezed orange juice (and some rind), plus coconut oil and maple syrup (so refined-sugar free).


I have served the mini carrot cakes with a fruit tea and some really nice quality dark chocolate. Go figure! 



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...

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..
