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..



Vegan sushi with lemon infused olive oil

Imogen Taylor - Monday, July 25, 2016

In all my years experimenting in the kitchen; this is the first time I've made or attempted sushi. I guess my interests lie ostensibly with spicy food.

So this is a bit of a departure from my usual fare. But fits well within the vegan regime.

I have used capsicum, celery, carrot, fresh herbs; then drizzled the sushi with a little lemon-infused extra virgin olive oil.

It was so delicious and fresh; and surprisingly sweet.



Instead of using rice; i wanted to try cracked wheat, but it was a bit crumbly. So this is a mixture of cracked wheat AND white rice. (I will continue experimenting)
