My Name Is Spice

Sweet potato patties with nectarine salsa

Imogen Taylor - Thursday, February 02, 2017
I have made these patties with cooked millet, roasted kumera (sweet potato), spices plus cooked chickpeas. Blitz till well combines in a food processor.

They are vegan; the millet is very binding so no need for egg! The salsa incorporates nectarine, cucumber, apricot, cherry tomatoes and fresh herbs and is the perfect accompaniment to the delicious millet patties.

Comfort food at its best!


Meet the Fockers

Imogen Taylor - Saturday, January 14, 2017


I like my food to have Big Personality! These were great fun to make; I have roasted the fennel in the oven while pan-frying the felafels.

For the base we have herbed polenta. And on top of the felafel layer is cucumber, then shitake mushrooms, then fresh fennel.

Drizzle with a tasty dressing and you're all set! (Don't they look like little characters)?!


This second dish uses the exact same ingredients; but i have assembled them differently (the following day).

This assemblage would be lovely with a subtle but rich vegetable stock poured into the bowl just prior to serving. Eh oui?


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!




Raw pizza base with vegan pesto and raw parmesan

Imogen Taylor - Thursday, September 01, 2016

This is not the best looking dish on this site; but trust me; it's the tastiest!

The base is beautifully crisp (after time in the dehydrator); the next layer is a raw tomato sauce, then we have marinated mushrooms, tomatoes and red onion; plus organic spinach, then vegan pesto, and the penultimate Raw (vegan) parmesan cheese!


This goes down as one of my favourite dishes of all time

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..



Aubergine Roulade with a Moroccan spicy rice filling

Imogen Taylor - Sunday, March 27, 2016



I have made these little eggplant roulades and served them on a bed of Moroccan-jewelled rice. I have added diced peaches and scattered some toasted hazelnuts to set this dish a-wagging!!

The rice is spiced with the famous Moroccan "Ras el Hanout" spice blend (this particular one is from my own range); lending the dish an exotic flavour.
