My Name Is Spice

Because it's Summer

Imogen Taylor - Wednesday, January 11, 2017

Healthy, happy and lively dinner vibe created with garden-fresh vegetables; I have blanched the broccoli and added it to the raw spinach; chickpeas cooked in a vegetable stock, red onion, shredded cucumber, finely shaved pear, along with toasted almonds, pumpkin and sesame seeds.

Dress with an avocado dressing;

1 ripe avocado

juice of 1 large lemon (or 2 smaller lemons)

1 clove garlic

1 generous tsp honey

1 drop cider vinegar (use sparingly so it doesn't dominate)

salt and freshly grated pepper

Blitz in a blender then add some extra virgin olive oil till you have the desired consistency.

Too good!




Vegan Strawberry Mousse

Imogen Taylor - Tuesday, July 26, 2016

 How to make mousse without dairy, gluten or eggs:    


RECIPE FOR TWO (Date Night)!

For the biscuit Base: 1/2 cup cashew nuts, 1/2 cup dates (don't soak them if you want a chewy base - YUM),  1 tablespoon golden linseed, 1 heaped tbsp coconut oil. 

Put the base ingredients into the food processor except the coconut oil, Melt the coconut oil and allow it to cool somewhat before pouring into the food processor and blitzing with the other ingredients till you have an amalgamated mixture.

Place the mixture in the glasses.



For the mousse: 1 large banana, 7 good size strawberries washed, 2/3 cup silken tofu, 1/3 cup maple syrup, 1/2 cup coconut oil  

Melt the coconut oil in a small pot and put aside to cool. Put the banana, the de-stemmed strawberries and the tofu in the blender and blitz. Add the maple syrup and repeat (blitzing that is). Once the coconut oil has cooled (but before it starts setting) add it to the blender and blitz to combine all the ingredients till smooth.
