My Name Is Spice

Zoodle salad with cashew sauce and raw parmesan crisps

Imogen Taylor - Thursday, December 22, 2016


The raw food diet is just so exciting; and the benefits to our health go without saying.

Can you imagine how the body must appreciate food that is still "living"?! (has a pulse? lol)

And if the ingredients are organic; your chances of a rich vitamin/mineral intake are splendid!

This Zoodle salad comprises raw zucchini noodles, a cashew-based sauce, rocket, activated almonds, and basil-pinenut "parmesan" crisps.

All vegan; all raw; all plant-based.

What's not to love?



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..
