Organic Peanut Butter Salted Caramel Vegan Cheesecake

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOkay, so this must be cheesecake week! My daughter and I made four different cheesecakes on Sunday, and another 3 cheesecakes on Monday…and this one was my favourite 🙂 (The strawberry one was pretty much equal favourite, we’ll put that up soon too.) These “cheesecakes” actually have no cheese, or dairy, they are made with soaked organic cashew nuts and coconut cream and other good ingredients.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Vegan cheesecakes: Coconut raspberry, strawberry, peanut butter salted caramel, mocha.

I looked up the benefits of soaking the nuts, so apart from making them easier to blend, it actually makes them easier to digest and easier to absorb the good nutrients from. Always throw away the soaking water, it contains the things we want to get rid of (if you want to look into this a bit closer Google it. I looked up http://healthyblenderrecipes.com/info/soaking_grains_nuts_seeds which was very informative, and suggests 2-4 hours is the optimum time for soaking cashews in warm water.)OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Coriander Dressing for Tofu

Yum, look closely at the tofu in the picture, now imagine a balance of saltiness, sweetness, a touch of sour and the pungent fragrance of coriander, with a slightly crisp outer and soft inner on the fried tofu cubes. Totally yum, if you know anyone who says “tofu is tasteless” then try them on this recipe! I promise it is anything but tasteless.

Vital ingredient: fresh coriander. You can swap some other things around and substitute here and there, but you must have the coriander to get this alive. Continue reading

Great served on good bread with a hearty soup for a warming meal. Continue reading
