Raw Superfood Slice

A creamy and satisfying raw and frozen slice which has a very high healthy fat content and is flavoured with the amazing Acai Berry Powder. This is a great grab and go snack and is just bursting with flavour and nutrition. The raw mixture when freshly made is a heavenly snack all on its own and tasting it is one of life’s pleasures.

Extremely delicious and easy to make.

I like to activate my nuts to remove the anti-nutrients but it isn’t essential. I try to do it if l can especially for the almonds but if you are just having a small amount then you can use the raw nuts that you have.

Making the Slice:

Ingredients:

2 cups of raw activated nuts. Use a hard nut such as almonds.

1 1/2 cups raw activated cashews

1 cup of organic coconut oil

3 level tablespoons raw organic honey (Buy the best you can).

2 generous tablespoons Acai Berry Powder (This can be substituted for another Superfood powder or raw cacao).

This powder is great in smoothies as well.

Method:

Add the almonds to the food processor (chopping blade) and process until it resembles almond meal. Add in the cashews and process. Now add in the Acai Berry Powder, honey and coconut oil (soft, chopped into small pieces or gently melted depending on the weather). I tend to just use the coconut oil hard and chop it into pieces as l like small clumps in the slice. You can also run the jar under some warm water just to soften it a bit rather than heating. Process until well combined and then place the ingredients in a dish generously lined with baking paper and smooth out with a spatula.

Nicely blended.

I didn’t use baking paper for this batch and it was hard to get out of the dish.

Place in the freezer to set for a couple of hours then slice into portions and return to the freezer.

Smaller slices are better.

Have a piece or two and enjoy.

As this slice has a high healthy fat content it does soften quite quickly when at room temperature and l prefer to eat it straight from the freezer.

 

Chunky Beetroot and Kale puree

Roasted beetroot and kale are combined to create a magnificent dish which will add colour and flavour to your meals. There is a delicious sweetness provided by the beetroot and a powerful selection of ingredients to add nutrition to your meals.

What a stunning colour! Pick a beetroot that is hard and firm. This is a sign of freshness.

This is curly kale but you can use Tuscan kale as well.

The most important aspect of any dish is fresh ingredients. This dish requires fresh kale (any variety), a large whole beetroot, 1/4 cup home made stock, 1/2 a red onion, pink rock salt and black pepper (to taste).

A really good looking beetroot.

Chop the ends off the beetroot and peel or wash well. Chop into smallish pieces and roast with some olive oil until soft.

Kale needs to be organic if possible and washed very well as it is mentioned on the Environmental Working group’s 2015 list of vegetables high in pesticide contamination. I can understand why it is sprayed as the cabbage moths are very damaging to the crops, but it is better to have kale with a few holes in it than to be looking perfect.

Soaking in filtered water and vinegar. Rinse well.

Place the roasted beetroot in the food processor when just out of the oven and then the rest of the ingredients as the heat will steam them. Process until not quite a puree. Chunky is good. Serve asap with your meal.

With lettuce wraps and spicy beef strips.

2015-06-19 19.05.49

An alternative version of the lettuce wraps meal but this time with added pan fried brussel sprouts.

2015-06-18 19.00.54

So simple but a side dish that can be used over several days. It re-heats well in a saucepan and is a colour sensation which will excite your taste buds.
