Chia ‘Cheesecake in a glass’ Pudding

We all enjoyed this delicious creamy chia dessert at our mid-year Youth Space dinner. Themed on a cheesecake but served in a glass, it looks good, tastes good and is loaded with nutritional goodness – including lots of minerals, omega 3s, fibre, good fats & protein. There’s no cooking (apart from lightly toasting some slivered almonds to…

Bircher Muesli

Sometimes the simplest things really are the best! This simple breakfast takes around 5-10 mins to prepare the night before, and is hearty, nutritious and yummy. It boasts the goodness of chia seeds, flax seeds and pumpkin seeds along with almonds, oats and coconut cream. Chia seeds and flax seeds absorb liquid and become jelly-like, which makes the…

Raspberry Coconut Mousse

These “cheesecakes” actually have no cheese, or dairy, they are made with…

We can then use that water in the sauce, keeping all the flavour and nutrients in the…

Carob Mud Cake

Here’s a rich, chocolatey dessert that will satisfy. The concept originally inspired by Petite Kitchen’s Vegan Dark Chocolate Torte, we have replaced the dark vegan chocolate with the ingredients of vegan carob chocolate (cocoa butter, rapadura, carob powder, soy milk powder), reducing the cost considerably and removing all caffeine. We also changed the “icing” into a…

Chickpea, Tomato and Coconut Soup

I was Googling recipes using chickpeas and ginger, as that’s what I had on hand, and I discovered this creamy, tasty and satisfying soup which is also super easy and quick to make with ingredients that are usually lurking in the pantry! I changed it around a little, and for something really special I recommend drizzling…

Curried Coconut Tofu

Recently we served this dish with potatoes and also rice with a medley of veges.  The preparation time is really only 10 or so minutes but you do need to allow 30 -40 minutes of oven time.
